Proposed Law Would Ban Online Ammo Sales
Anti-gun activists may have found a 2nd Amendment loophole: it doesn't say anything about ammunition! So, they're pushing for a ban on selling ammo online.
The legislation would also restrict the sale of ammo at gun stores.
"If you've gotta go one way or the other to make them happy this is the lesser of two evils."
Tactical Firearms owner Jeremy Alcede says this might have made it tougher for the Denver shooter.
"Nothing's gonna stop anything but it could help so I'm kinda in the middle. I'd rather not have to deal with this at all."
The law would require a license to sell ammo and dealers would have to report anyone who bought a thousand rounds of ammo over five consecutive days.
Plus, in a direct contradiction of what the Justice Department tells Texas about voting legislation, the law would require a photo ID to purchase ammo. That requirement is why it would effectively ban online ammo purchases.
