If certain legislators in New York get their way, you would only be able to buy 20 rounds of ammunition per gun every 90 days.
This story was reported a couple weeks ago but it was kind of covered up in the bustle of the holidays so I thought I would remind everyone of what the anti-gun movement is really trying to do here.
State lawmakers from Brooklyn announced new legislation a couple weeks ago that would limit ammunition sales to twice the capacity of a gun every 90 days. And with New York’s other laws saying a gun cannot hold more than 10 rounds, this would mean 20 rounds per gun.
Good luck getting some time in at the range with 20 bullets in your magazines.
According to brooklyneagle.com,
The legislation would place a strict limit on the number of bullets a gun owner could purchase over a 90-day time period, and prevent gun dealers from selling ammunition for a firearm to anyone unauthorized to have such a weapon.
“If I have a cold I can’t buy Sudafed without ID, but I can walk into any gun shop and walk out with enough bullets to arm a small army without showing any kind of ID,” Simon said in a joint release. “I can buy any kind of bullets regardless of what kind of gun I own. I don’t even have to own a gun to stock up on bullets. Nothing stops me from having friends buy even more bullets for me. The sky is the limit. The San Bernardino shooters had 6,000 rounds of ammunition. We need this legislation so that cannot happen here.”
Adams, a former police officer with the NYPD who figured in the passage of the NY Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act, said there was a “a responsibility to put public safety first, in the face of the blood-soaked carnage of mass shootings, made possible by the calculated and unrestricted stockpiling of thousands of deadly ammunition rounds.”
“Limiting the quantity and duration between purchases of ammunition is one step in preventing someone with criminal intent from easily accessing large quantities of ammunition,” Persaud said.
While the measure is aimed at owners of assault rifles, the language contained in the draft legislation would also affect owners of handguns with much smaller capacities, such as six-shooters.
Since the measure would cap the amount of ammunition to no more than twice the amount of the capacity of the weapon every 90 days, these gun owners would be limited to buying a dozen bullets every three months.
If anti-gunners can’t get what they want on gun laws they will go after ammunition. And don’t doubt for one second that our president isn’t also trying to use every trick in the book to do the exact same thing.
Stay vigilant my friends.
