Rabid Gun Grabbers at It, Again: Sen. Lautenberg introduces Bill to BAN Online Ammo Sales, Registration of Bulk Purchases!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Mon, 07/30/2012 - 21:20
Continuing the statist tradition of making lemonade out of tragedies, this is just 'Phase 2' of their relentless attack, after UN Small Arms Treaty's been put on hold, since July 27th, 2012, to the more recent sneak attack/stealth attachment of an amendment to ban "high capacity magazines" sales, onto the "Cyber Security Bill," no less, to now this:

For some reason neither Senator Lautenberg nor Senator McCarthy responded to TTAG’s telephone request for a copy of their proposed gun control—I mean ammo control legislation or the senators’ original statement prior to its official unveiling. An eagle-eyed, ever-vigilant reader send us a link. Here’s the skinny:
The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act works through four components:
· It requires anyone selling ammunition to be a licensed dealer.
· It requires ammunition buyers who are not licensed dealers to present photo identification at the time of purchase, effectively banning the online or mail order purchase of ammo by regular civilians.
· It requires licensed ammunition dealers to maintain records of the sale of ammunition.
· It requires licensed ammunition dealers to report the sale of more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition to an unlicensed person within any five consecutive business days.

UPDATE 1: These murderous lunatics just don't know when to stop!
I'm so glad I left New Jersey; never, EVER want to live there, ever again. My beloved NJ R3VOL, y'all have a work cut out for you; talk about an understatement of the century!

“There is not a more, in my view, opportune moment than when there’s still a period of mourning coming from Colorado. Timing, it’s said, is everything. And this is the time.” Time for Senator Frank Lautenberg [above] to stick to his guns, apparently, endangering the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 with a federal ban on “high-capacity” ammunition magazines. Senator Joe Lieberman urged Lautenberg to go on and quit it. Frank doubled-down. “I’m [sorry Dave I'm] not prepared to do that,” Lautenberg told The Huffington Post. “We want to connect safety with reality. And the reality is that we lose more people every year to gun murder than we do in the military … It is ridiculous.” The reality is that Lautenberg’s lack of knowledge about personal safety is unreal.
UPDATE 2: Not missing a beat, Illinois Governor too dives into Nanny Pansy Bloomberg's rabid anti-gun crusade cesspool!

SPRINGFIELD — Gov. Pat Quinn is renewing a push in Illinois to ban assault weapons in the wake of the killings at a Colorado theater that left 12 dead and dozens more wounded.
The Democratic governor also revealed plans today to propose a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines in Illinois.
He said in a letter to all state lawmakers that he supports the U.S. Constitution's 2nd Amendment right to bear arms, but the "proliferation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines undermines public safety and the right of personal security of every citizen."
UPDATE 3: LOL Check out oBUSHma; he knows 'gun control' is a dead issue!

The White House gave a cool welcome on Monday to Democratic legislation that would effectively ban online or mail-order purchases of ammunition in the aftermath of the mass shooting at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater.
[...] President Barack Obama has called for a common sense response to the slaughter in Aurora. But the White House has played down his appetite for new legislation as opposed to tightening or toughening existing measures—such as background checks—to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals or the mentally ill. And the president has underlined his support for the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
The new legislation [...] requires anyone selling ammunition to be a licensed dealer.
It requires ammunition buyers who are not licensed dealers to present photo identification at the time of purchase, effectively banning the online or mail order purchase of ammo by regular civilians.
Frankly instead of tip-toeing, if NRA actually had balls, they'd push for the COMPLETE REPEAL of 1934 National Firearms Act, 1968 Gun Control Act, and the 1986 Fire Arm Owners Protection Act (like the Patriot Act, only if govt bill's names actually reflected its real intent) which banned sales of full auto machineguns manufactured after that 1986, as a counter to the Brady Gungrabbers Inc.
It's like they want to see a 'politicization of a tragedy?' I'd say Double Down, NOW!
They should push for the COMPLETE REPEAL of ATF, and EVERY 'gun control' bills in existence, period!
