Sounds like Lautenberg and McCarthy are pandering to their lib voters, even Dingy Harry is against this.

LOL, I pray it turns out just the way that they fear, especially in light of increased gun sales in so many places.

And when that doesn't work??????? Please, tell me, smarter than thou, how will you stop people from getting ammo and weapons if they REALLY want to get them. Please, tell me.

You only need to look at Mexico to know that you can NEVER stop those that want weapons and ammo. They WILL get them and they WILL use them, no matter how many laws you create.

Effing idiots, the whole friggin lot of them.

They can shove it up their collective smelly Obamas.

I almost wish they would go ahead and try (that’s try) to ban weapons, ammo, etc.

I’ll not speak of the consequences.

I haven’t heard how many rounds exactly that he did shoot, but at some point he would have reached a maximum utility after which it wouldn’t mater whether he had 6000, or 200, or 600,000 rounds of ammunition. Apparently, he only needed 60 to create the carnage that he did, so any law regarding the possession of ammunition would have to set a really low level to be considered efeective. The goal would have to be one round per person to prevent killing more than one other person. It should also be noted that the shooter would not be constrained by legal limits on ammunition possession because he was a criminal, and criminals are, by definition, not bound by laws.

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

There’s plenty to worry about, but at the VERY BOTTOM of that list is the idea that the Dems can pass gun control legislatively.

LET THEM TRY - it only knocks out another 5 of them in the house, every time one of them opens their mouth.

Implying that buying ammo this way you're not a law abiding citizen and by inference that any gun owner is a nut and will be a mass killers/shooter.

Holmes may have bought 6,000 rounds, but only took a few hudred to do his deed. None of the past massacres involved thousands of rounds.

Frank the fossil- No sportsman needs 100 rounds to shoot a duck, but allowing high-capacity magazines in the hands of killers like James Holmes and Jared Loughner ...”

Good thing that the nut chose the hundred 100 rd 'beta mag' that is prone to jam instead of regular 20 or 30 rd magazines or the carnage would have been much worse.

You mean like .... ZERO ?

Which doesn't matter because everyone on FR lost their guns while out deer hunting in their bass boats. A gator jumped into my boat, turning it on it's side. All my 'guns' sunk to the bottom.

I was able to swim to shore, pulling the boat behind me by it's anchor line. I saved the boat but I ain't gonna go swimming after the guns.

You should listen to Gov Romney defending Massachusetts’ tough gun control laws that he promised to never chip away at, and then proved it by banning “assault” rifles. And he’s now promising that if such legislation gets to his desk as president, he will sign it.

You mean “pro-gun” Harry Reid? If I'm not mistaken, didn't the majority of the deaths come from buckshot fired from a Remington 870? You know, the most popular shotgun in the world?

If words are the atoms of the First Amendment, then ammo is the atom of the Second.

Political figures who relentlessly attempt to suppress one part of the Constitution they don’t like cannot be trusted wih the remander.

PS does Lautenberg know what day of the week it is?

Lautenberg is so left wing he makes Obama seem almost
centrist and McCarthy is probably crazier than the shooter
in Aurora.

Neither one can do anything except knee jerk react to events. And neither one of them can carry on a coherent conversation when interviewed by even the friendliest of
MSM syncophants.

I haven’t read the number of rounds fired either, that info may not have been released. The rifle jammed and there were rounds left in the 100 round drum mag, he then fired pistol rounds. It’s probably safe to say he didn’t shoot too many more rounds than a hundred, if that.

The hype about him buying 6000 rounds is just that, hype, plus it was legal and those rounds could have been bought at a retail outlet or at a gun show.

I propose that sane legislators counter this bill with a bill that requires that every adult citizen in this nation purchase 1,000 rounds of ammo, any kind. Purchase of a gun is up to them.

If we can be forced to purchase insurance, we can most definitely be forced to buy ammo. This legislation would drive this horrendous fact home. I'm seriously going to recommend this to my rep. Someone has to rub this profligate government's face in the ridiculousness of it all.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (N.Y.)- two jerks with their usual knee jerk reaction to events. The side show bob shooter didn’t get many rounds off as his big magazine jammed, the shotgun held the usual 3 or 4 shells and the handguns magazines were not all used up. He may have had a lot of rounds in his apartment, but killed with far fewer. Limit rounds and the bad guys will use something else, like a big glass jug of gasoline - will that require a limit on gas sales?

Bullshit!

You can’t purchase a stick of chewing gum on line anonymously. Paypal and credit cards are far from anonymous.

Loughner, the gunman charged in the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.) and Holmes, who is the lone suspect in the Aurora theater shootings are both believed to have used high-capacity magazines.

I wonder if there is any way for the author to find out for sure and then get back with us.

Was the Shooter “carrying” six thousand rounds of Ammunition when he committed the crime?

Now the ammunition is the problem? I thought 12 people died, not 6,000.

Only Communists, Dictators, Fascists and Nazis kill that many people at one time. Which is precisely why the Second Amendment exists.

Were the Founding Fathers Sportsmen? Were the members of the Continental Army Sportsmen? Does the word Sportsmen appear in the text of the Second Amendment?

Maybe it was listed right after the word “hunters”, another word I must of missed.

You have to hope for Mitten's sake the Democrats are stupid enough to make an issue of something like this near an election. There is very broad support for the 2nd Amendment even amongst those who do not own a gun and those who do will vote on this issue alone.

Five bucks for gas, .20 cents for deposit bottles, some old rags and a bic lighter would have killed ten times as many.
