Backdoor Gun Grab: Democrats Push New Gun Restrictions

via hickok45 on Youtube

Democratic members of Congress have introduced the Ammunition Modernization and Monitoring Oversight Act, proposing restrictions on bulk ammunition sales, licensing requirements for ammunition vendors, and background checks for ammunition buyers.

The bill aims to compensate for the lack of regulation on ammunition sales and extend policies existing in California to a federal level.

“We have a moral responsibility to treat gun violence in this country like the crisis it is,” Senator Elizabeth Warren said.

“The Ammunition Modernization and Monitoring Oversight (AMMO) Act is a common-sense step to restrict ammunition sales, strengthen federal oversight of those sales, and help end the epidemic of gun violence in America,” she added.

If passed, the AMMO Act would limit bulk purchases of ammunition and extend straw purchase prohibitions on firearms to ammunition.

“The bottom line is no individual should be buying bulk amounts of ammunition without a federal background check from places like gas stations, pharmacies, and convenience stores – especially without any sort of regulation and no record of the sale,” Rep. Robert Garcia of California said.

“If we’re ever going to really take on the gun violence epidemic in this country, we need to regulate ammo accessibility,” he added.

“This bill aims to protect the American public from the devastating violence that occurs when individuals have access to unlimited amounts of weaponry.”

“No family should endure the pain of losing a loved one to gun violence,” stated Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

“I’m proud to work with Congressman Robert Garcia and Senator Warren to introduce comprehensive legislation closing the ammunition loophole in our gun safety laws. This bill will save lives.”
