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

The bill aims to regulate ammunition sales and strengthen federal oversight in an effort to end the epidemic of gun violence in America.

“We have a moral responsibility to treat gun violence in this country like the crisis it is,” Sen. 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 restrict bulk purchases of ammo and extend the ban on 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 said.

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

“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,” said 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.”
