It’s Time to Stock up on Ammo

With the recent tragedy in Aurora Colorado, anti-second amendment lawmakers are waisting no time in ensuring that no “crisis goes to waste” by pushing their gun-control agendas.

This past Monday, democrat Senators Carolyn McCarthy and Frank Lautenberg introduced legislation that would effectively ban online ammunition sales and force dealers to report large sales of ammunition to law enforcement agencies:

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.”

Lautenberg and McCarthy’s proposed Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act would require 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 also 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.

…Lautenberg said he thinks the bill’s chances are “pretty good.”

“It’s going to be acted upon next week, and we’re very optimistic,” Lautenberg said.

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.

What does this mean for the rest of us? Well, if you haven’t been already, it’s time to start stocking up. Also, it’s time you learn how to reload (this is something I’ll be covering in future articles).

One of my favorite online ammo dealers btw is LuckyGunner.com. Check out their great prices:

Write your representatives and other representatives and inform them that people that they represent are against this. Also, invite everyone you know to write them too. That is the simplest thing to do.

Also when writing your representatives, politely remind them that you vote and will remember what they did in November, and to Remember Clinton and how Congress members didn’t return to office after Brady was passed!

The ammo was purchased so “anonymously” that law enforcement knew he purchased the 6000 rounds…

It wont stop anything. We can email a photo of our I.D. as long as the I.D. has the same address as we are shipping to and as long as the I.D. has the same name as our creditcard that were are paying with. Just like when you buy a riffle over the internet. Your dealer e mails a copy of his federal fire arms license to the dealer you purchased from.. The licensed ammo dealer is a load of crap though. A site I like to use is http://www.gun-deals.com.. it links you with every website on the internet that has a sale on ammo it calculates cost per round adding shipping costs to that math as well. Check it out.

As a reminder to your post last november titled real life SHTF situation Q&A the survivor of that catastrophe recommends 2000 rounds of ammo per gun you own.

Hi! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying
to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this
problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
