Skip to comments.Ammo Ban And Registration Proposal Getting Fresh Look
Posted on 12/15/2008 7:29:33 AM PST by Sammy67
Happy Holidays: Now dispose of all of your ammunition! Every last round! From now on, you will be able to buy only overpriced ammunition that will be registered to you in a government database. Not yet--at least for now. A small company, Ammunition Accountability--which wants to help anti-gunners price and regulate the Second Amendment out of existence, profit at the expense of our rights, or both--has found radical anti-gun legislators in 18 states willing to introduce bills pushing such nonsense. But few anti-gun proposals are so overtly aimed at destroying the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. As we began noting on http://www.nraila.org/ in January, so-called "encoded ammunition" or "serialized ammunition" bills would require ammunition manufacturers to engrave a serial number on the base of the bullet and the inside of the cartridge casing of each round of ammunition for popular sporting caliber center-fire rifles, all center-fire pistols, all .22 rimfire rifles and pistols, and all 12 gauge shotguns. In all but one of the bills, people would be

More socialist paranoia about the Second Amendment.....
Somehow, I don't see this going over too well in Texas.
Scenario: Mr. X needs to be "offed". Y gives Z his ammo. Y flies to California. Mr. X is offed while he is there.
Old law: You can't be in two different places at the same time.
the election needs to be declared illegal and save us from this hell hole of progress.
what is to stop people from making their own?
All you need is one of these to load 500 an hour:
The DC Sniper case is a good example. The shells matched but which one actually pulled the trigger in each shooting? We'll never really know.
Won't matter, they'll throw us all in
Oh boy, Oh boy, something to replace Prohibition. “I thought that I was out but now they are going to pull me back in”.
Implement it on NY and I will go to a state where there is no registration.... Or start loading my own...
There will be limits on possession. Unstamped ammo will be illegal to possess with criminal penalty. Per bullet taxes will be imposed to pay for the government directory and registration of ammo. Only ammo can be purchased and possessed for each registered firearm. The list of states and the proposed laws are documented on the Gun Owners of America website.
People, these proposed laws are dangerous. They were tried last year, and maybe the year before. Language on every state bill is almost identical. This is a national effort to undermine the 2nd Amendment.
The people behind this effort are commies.
But obviously Y knows something, ‘cuz it’s his name on the paperwork. When Y says “I know nothing about it”, investigators won’t just throw up their hands and say “OK, unsolvable mystery, case closed for lack of evidence.”
I don’t understand why people think “oh, just swap it” and “lost ‘em in a tragic boating accident” and other popular 10-second lines of thought would outwit teams of professional big-budget forensic investigators.
The people behind this are the Venture Capitalists in Washington State who funded the guys that have the patent on ammunition encoding
Right, and then everyone who (was) law abiding will say screw it and ignore every gun law instead of just that one in particular.
I can just imagine the proliferation of sawed off shotguns and home converted automatic weapons.
Speaking of which, how the hell will they stamp shotgun rounds??
Additionally, bullets entering a human body tend to fragment, so stamping a serial number on them would be useless most of the time. (except in the well-known case of the “magic bullet” that killed JFK. went through 2 bodies and a car seat.)
Okay. You first.
Silly, because they CAN.
Commies have money to invest in causes they support also.
Perhaps even more money than capitalists because they seize assets for the good of the cause.
A good commie can disguise themself as a capitalist. Deception is a big part of the take over process.
