New Bill BANS Online Ammo Sales, Imposes Other Severe Restrictions


In an attempt bypass 2nd amendment rights preventing Congress from abridging the right to bear arms Congress moves to ban ammunition sales instead.

In the wake of the Aurora Colorado massacre the federal government is wasting no time to clamp down on the 2nd amendment right to bear arms.

In an attempt to side-step the Constitutional restrictions that prevent them from outright banning guns altogether they are taking another approach – imposing severe restrictions on the buying and selling ammunition. If you’re an honest, law-abiding American, why should you have to miss out on your constitutional rights to own a firearm. A few bad apples spoil the pie, so they say. Don’t let that get between you and your right to defend yourself or hunt. You may want to, therefore, continue shopping around for the latest products and attachments for your rifle, such as this bubble level for scopes – with it, you’ll be equipped with the tools to experience accuracy and precision like never before.

For starters, online ammunition sales and mail order sales would be banned outright.

The for the ways to buy and sell ammunition legally, the will be severe restrictions on the amount a person can buy which is being reported in doublespeak as ‘ending the sale of infinite amounts of ammunition’.

Finally, before you hit those new arbitrary limits, dealers will be forced to report any and all ‘large sales’ of ‘bullets or munitions’ to law enforcement agencies.


Shit Hit The Fan Plan reports:

This afternoon democrat Senators Frank Lautenberg and Carolyn McCarthy unveiled what may possibly be the most sweeping anti-second amendment legislative action in recent memory. Coming on the heels of the tragic events that left a dozen people dead and scores injured in Colorado, it’s becoming painfully obvious to proponents of the Second Amendment and individual liberty that politicians on the State and Federal level are doing everything in their power to ensure this crisis does not go to waste.

Two Democratic lawmakers on Monday will announce new legislation to regulate the online and mail-order sale of ammunition.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (N.Y.) said the new law would make the sale of ammunition “safer for law-abiding Americans who are sick and tired of the ease with which criminals can now anonymously stockpile for mass murder,” in a statement released Saturday.

The lawmakers cite the recent movie massacre in Aurora, Colo. for spurring their bill.

“The shooter who killed 12 and injured 58 in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater this month had purchased over 6,000 rounds of ammunition anonymously on the Internet shortly before going on his killing spree, according to law enforcement officials,” the statement reads.

Lautenberg and McCarthy, who will unveil their new proposal at New York’s City Hall say they intend to “make it harder for criminals to anonymously stockpile ammunition through the Internet.”

White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday that President Barack Obama will “evaluate” new legislation that effectively bans online sales of gun ammunition, but he wouldn’t say whether the president could support it.

Lautenberg says his bill could help to prevent the sale of ammunition “to a terrorist or the next would-be mass murderer.”

“If someone wants to purchase deadly ammunition, they should have to come face-to-face with the seller,” Lautenberg said in a statement. “It’s one thing to buy a pair of shoes online, but it should take more than a click of the mouse to amass thousands of rounds of ammunition.”

It seems, as we noted in January when New Jersey proposed the banning of certain types of ammunition, that opponents of the second amendment have found a way to render it impotent by circumventing gun ownership altogether and moving to directly restrict the availability of ammunition itself, taxing it like they do cigarettes and alcohol, or eventually banning it altogether.

The text of the proposed legislation has not yet been made available via the U.S. Senate Congressional records web site.

The takeaway, as The Daily Sheeple notes: Stock Up Now. Not just on ammunition, but high capacity magazines, because these people will not stop until they’ve completely neutered our second amendment rights.

Stock Up Now: Obama ‘Evaluating’ New Bill Banning Online Ammunition Sales

Let’s be honest. We all saw this one coming.

The government no doubt is using the the emotional outcry of the Aurora shooting to further its attempts at disarming Americans. The bill proposes to ban unlimited sales of ammunition over the internet and also for ammunition suppliers/dealers to report large sales of ammunition to law enforcement agencies.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that President Obama will “evaluate” a new bill that would ban online ammunition sales in the wake of the shooting massacre in Aurora, Colo. That left 12 dead and dozens more injured.

During the daily press briefing, Mr. Earnest was asked whether Mr. Obama supports the measure, which aims to end sales of unlimited amounts of ammunition on the Internet and other mail orders. The bill also would force ammunition dealers to report large sales of bullets and other munitions to law enforcement authorities.


“The president’s view that have been relayed quite frequently over the last few days, you know, is that he believes in the Second Amendment of the Constitution, in the right to bear arms but he also believes that we should take robust steps within existing law to ensure that guns don’t fall in the hands of criminals or others [who] shouldn’t have them,” he said, referring to gun-control comments Mr. Obama made during at speech at the National Urban League.

The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act works through four components:

· It requires anyone selling ammunition to be a licensed dealer.

· It requires ammunition buyers who are not licensed dealers to present photo identification at the time of purchase, effectively banning the online or mail order purchase of ammo by regular civilians.

· It requires licensed ammunition dealers to maintain records of the sale of ammunition.

· It requires licensed ammunition dealers to report the sale of more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition to an unlicensed person within any five consecutive business days.
