Law for Online Ammo Sales

“It’s one thing to buy a pair of shoes online, but it should take more than a click of the mouse to amass thousands of rounds of ammunition,” said Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey. He and fellow gun-control advocates are pushing for a ban on the sale of bullets to anonymous customers over the Internet. The proposed measure would require that people trying to buy ammunition online provide photo identification and online vendors be licensed, keep records, and report sales of ammunitions that surpass 1,000 rounds. The new suggested legislation comes in light of the fact that the Aurora shooting suspect purchased more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition on the Internet. According to a new poll released Monday, Americans’ views on gun control have not changed since the Aurora shooting.
