Gun control. It’s been a hot button issue for years. Now, the recent movie theatre massacre in Colorado prompted some federal lawmakers to take political advantage of the situation.
The purpose of this proposed bill: preventing people from buying bulk ammunition online and in the mail. Some dealers in Lincoln feel this move would infringe on American’s rights.
The proposed bill would require a photo ID for any ammunition purchases; completely ruling out online and mail sales. Dealers would also have to report a sale of more than 1,000 rounds which local dealers say isn’t an unusual amount.
