Democrats in congress are up to their old tricks again this week as they launch yet another plan to try to take down guns.
Thirty-one House Democrats have proposed legislation that would prevent Americans from buying ammunition online. Instead, people would now be forced to buy all ammunition in person. The Democrats have admitted that the goal of this is to prevent Americans from buying “unlimited” ammunition online.
The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act was started by freshman Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), and it would also require all ammunition dealers to become licensed by the federal government. According to The Blaze, it would also require the sellers to report bulk ammo purchases to the government.
In a Facebook post, Coleman said that the bill would “better track and regulate the unlimited market for ammunition currently available on the Internet.”
“Far too many times, we have seen the shocking images of unspeakable gun violence that could have been prevented,” Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ), a cosponsor of the bill, also wrote on Facebook.
“Our bill to limit the online sale of ammunition is a long-overdue common sense reform that I am hopeful will spark Congress to put aside party difference and come together to help prevent such senseless tragedies,” he added. “Reforming the unregulated online ammo market could prevent next gun tragedy.”
This comes just weeks after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tried to ban a type of ammo widely used for AR-15s. They quickly received over 90,000 comments in protest and eventually repealed the ban.
House Democrats will likely never stop trying to take down the Second Amendment, and we can only hope that they never succeed!
