In their latest rush to further emasculate the Second Amendment, many on the Left are taking aim at the Internet.
Of course, illegal online sales of weapons and ammunition should be stopped–though the practice isn’t nearly as prevalent as the left would have you believe.
But progressives are also looking to ban legal online sales through a bevy of new gun control resolutions, including H.R. 142, which “would ban Internet or mail order ammunition purchases.”
Meanwhile, the state of New York just passed a ban on Internet “assault weapon” sales.
Progressives act as though the move to end all online weapons transactions is just that simple–wave a gavel, pass a law, and it’s done. Just like with guns themselves–declare a gun-free school zone, and all schools will be gun-free.
But they are not always such regulatory optimists.
