Surprise: Democrats Introduce Bill Requiring Background Checks For All Ammo Purchases

No matter how they position this as being anti-criminal, all it does is cause problems for the law abiding citizens who purchase ammunition

(Daily Caller) In the wake of the “March For Our Lives” rally Saturday, and with no legislative appetite for more gun control laws, Democrats in both the House and Senate have introduced a bill requiring background checks for purchasing bullets.

“You do not have the right to bear bullets,” said Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz at a press conference Monday announcing the introduction of a bill that would require instant background checks to purchase ammunition.

The Ammunition Background Check Act was introduced by Wasserman Schultz in the House and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in the Senate. Like its name implies, it would require anyone looking to buy bullets to be subjected to background checks, similar to the one required to purchase a firearm in the first place.

Both are protected by people with firearms, often ones that We The People are barred from owning, with lots of bullets.

Dick? If they can’t buy a gun legally, why are they going to go in and buy ammunition? It’s like buying gas for a car you don’t own.

Wasserman Schultz said, “I really think it’s important to underscore that without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal, and a would-be killer lacks the means to actually kill or maim.”

And you can easily read between the lines of this, the essence being that Democrats want to make it hard for you law abiding citizens to acquire ammunition, making the guns you own hunks of useless metal. If they can’t grab them (not that they aren’t still trying) they’ll attempt to make them useless. All they’ll do is make the permission to purchase ammo harder and harder.

I wonder if they’ll be a spike in kits to manufacture your own ammo? Not that this bill has a snowballs chance in hell of making it out of committee, much less to a floor vote, unless Demcorats manage to regain both the House and Senate. Trump would then not sign it, if it could make it past a GOP filibuster. The gun grabbers will still attempt to dink and dunk on their way to outright banning, at least when they can’t get their big bans through. Oh, and BTW

The full headline is “One in five Americans wants the Second Amendment Repealed”. As Kyle Kushev and others note, this means that 4 out of Americans want to keep the Second Amendment. Heck, they couldn’t even get 40% of Democrats to agree with repeal.

    Here’s how gun-friendly Switzerland regulates ammunition:

    In order to purchase ammunition the buyer must follow the same legal rules that apply to buying guns. The buyer can only buy ammunition for guns that he/she legally owns and must provide the following information to the seller:
    1. valid official identification or passport (and must be older than 18 and who are not psychiatrically disqualified nor identified as posing security problems, and must not be a citizen of certain nations.
    2. residence address
    3. criminal record copy not older than 3 months
    4. weapon acquisition permit not older than 2 years, or a weapon carrying permit not older than 5 years

    Really? But requiring a valid ID would be “ammo buyer suppression” to libs if they weren’t hypocrites

    Sen. Dick Blumenthal also claimed he served in Vietnam.
    Falsely, one might add, kinda like the nignorant angry little black fella.

  6. DCE says:

    …And 4 out of 5 Americans don’t want the 2nd Amendment to be repealed.

    • Jeffery says:

      There is no need to repeal our 2nd Amendment. Our Supreme Court has already averred that Americans do NOT have a right keep and bear EVERY firearm available.
