Blumenthal introduces new legislation on gun ammunition

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced legislation on Tuesday that would require background checks for buying gun ammunition.

It’s currently illegal to sell ammunition to fugitives, felons and people suffering from mental disorders. However, while background checks are required for selling firearms, they are not required for selling ammunition. Blumenthal’s legislation would require background checks for selling ammunition as well.

“Ammunition sales should be subject to the same legal requirements as firearm sales — instant background checks using the FBI’s national database,” Blumenthal said in a statement. “There is no rational reason why a person can walk into a store, fill their shopping cart with hundreds of rounds of ammo, pay up, and walk out without so much as giving their name.

    “There is no rational reason why a person can walk into a store, fill their shopping cart with hundreds of rounds of ammo, pay up, and walk out without so much as giving their name.”

    Yes, there is. We call it the 2nd Amendment.

    Another load of b.s. If you can’t buy or possess a gun, it won’t matter how many rounds of ammunition you have or can buy. In short, it is a moot point if you have nothing to shoot it in.

    The reason for the background check? To see if you are a criminal that has been released by liberals into society after not being punished for previous crimes – and hence the reason for the crime.

    The right to keep and bare arms shall NOT BE INFRINGED. Period.
    Infringe = Act so as to limit or undermine.
    What is so hard to understand about that?

    That will also be “released to the news” where you live making it even easier now for the criminals to arm themselves?
