You just can't use reason on the fully unreasonable.

Despite much effort, some are just beyond the use of logic.

Because their ideology says what they are doing is right, no matter how wrong the methods used to achieve the ends.

I guess you can't understand what they are saying. "Cochran said buyers would still be able to complete an Internet sale, but would need to present a photo I.D. in-person at an authorized dealer before the shipment can be made."

Still working on those reading skills huh? Did he say after this passes you cannot buy ammo online? Nope sure doesn't.

So if i buy ammo online from a store in Montana and I live in NC... who exactly would i present the ID too? I do love vague laws open to interpretation of lefty bureaucrats.

Is there some reason you can't buy locally? Way to support your community.



Well unless Cortney is suddenly transgender I think she is a she
...and of course it does, what is an "authorized dealer?" I go to Walmart and show my ID for a sale to Joes Ammo Emporium of Montanna? How does that work pray tell? Reading is not your problem, but comprehension seems to an issue.


I would buy local if they were not price gouging. Simple fact is, people will pay (out of fear) much higher prices for ammo locally than i could buy in bulk online. You not understanding this means you don't buy ammo. I doubt you have a clue about any of this.

And surprise, buster only addressed the one post that he thought he could gain a "technical" point on.

"It doesn't say you can't buy online, it just makes it impossible to do so, what's the big deal?"

This is likely being pushed by the large ammo and guns lobbying industry themselves.

Threats of taking away your guns and ammo use to happen on election years .but since the mentioning of taking guns and ammo away generates so much profit for them with sales: that it looks like the cycle has been shorten to less than every year now.

Taking away your guns fits in with the rest of the doom porn around here, it doesn't happen and won't happen.

They have you already under control there is no need to take them away from you.

It should be pretty obvious by now with how many times the boy has cried wolf.


Follow the money : how many lobbying industry stand to profit from less weapons and ammo being on the street versus how many lobbying industries profit from having them on the streets.

Which is an online ammunition sales ban...!!!

Seriously?

What do you think we order from places that have a store in town?

Actually the blaze is right and you are wrong.... Honestly I think you already knew that though...

So if I buy ammo from the Phillipines... Who do I show my Id to?

There are some Web sites that allow you to purchase from all over the world.

so its Ok if we are made to show an ID to buy ammo but apparently asking for an ID to vote is going to far? lol i don't get people sometimes lol


That would mean requiring an ID to buy ammo is racist too! Fight fire with fire I always say (pun intended).

I'm glad the Dems keep pushing these laws! Since they outlawed the bayonet lug on ARs, I have not been assaulted by a massed bayonet charge!

Seriously though, this is a poorly written piece of crap. I have done many orders online, in fact completed one for some .22lr recently, because they had it in stock and it was cheap....even with the shipping charge!

One online store I order from does require a photo ID on file before you order from them. Maybe that's what this "law" is trying to get at.

I have to agree with others though...why is it wrong to require an ID to vote but okay to require one for ammo?

As a practical matter, it would almost certainly raise the cost of doing so, because the dealer is going to want his cut for handling the shipment. And no doubt, most of them are going to charge you enough that its no longer worth buying online, because they want you buying their ammunition in-store at their high prices instead. So effectively, yes, it would all but end online ammunition sales, not as a legal matter, but as a practical one.

And you might be surprised how many people can't buy locally. Most of the firearms 'dealers' in my area are actually pawn shops that deal in new and used guns. They don't sell ammunition. In my town, you have a choice of either Walmart, which will sell you one box per day, or a small local hardware store. In both cases, your choices are limited, you may not find what you need, and buying in bulk certainly isn't going to happen anytime soon. For anything resembling a bulk purchase, it would cost me a couple of hours of my time to drive to the nearest Academy Sports, and sometimes, even they limit what you can buy and their selection isn't that great, either. In all cases, buying locally costs me more, sometimes by quite a lot. I saved about $8/box on my last online order, not to mention considerable headache actually trying to FIND what I was looking for locally.

I don't doubt that the day is coming where online ammunition sales are sharply curtailed or ended, but for many of us, it'll be a pain in the backside when it happens.

It is restricting people.

What does providing a DL do? The order is completed with a CC, the address listed is to the purchaser.


So, ID to purchase ammo, but not to vote.

Moronic.

Just when people were starting to relax, and Wal-Mart actually had every caliber on the shelf except .22LR, along comes this BS. This laughable bill has no chance of passing, but it's already succeeded just by existing. I feel some more crappy Russian ammo is in my near future.
