Let’s be honest. We all saw this one coming.

The government no doubt is using the the emotional outcry of the Aurora shooting to further its attempts at disarming Americans. The bill proposes to ban unlimited sales of ammunition over the internet and also for ammunition suppliers/dealers to report large sales of ammunition to law enforcement  agencies.

Stock up now.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that President Obama will “evaluate” a new bill that would ban online ammunition sales in the wake of the shooting massacre in Aurora, Colo. That left 12 dead and dozens more injured.

During the daily press briefing, Mr. Earnest was asked whether Mr. Obama supports the measure, which aims to end sales of unlimited amounts of ammunition on the Internet and other mail orders. The bill also would force ammunition dealers to report large sales of bullets and other munitions to law enforcement authorities.

……

“The president’s view that have been relayed quite frequently over the last few days, you know, is that he believes in the Second Amendment of the Constitution, in the right to bear arms but he also believes that we should take robust steps within existing law to ensure that guns don’t fall in the hands of criminals or others [who] shouldn’t have them,” he said, referring to gun-control comments Mr. Obama made during at speech at the National Urban League.

The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act works through four components:

·       It requires anyone selling ammunition to be a licensed dealer.
·       It requires ammunition buyers who are not licensed dealers to present photo identification at the time of purchase, effectively banning the online or mail order purchase of ammo by regular civilians.
·       It requires licensed ammunition dealers to maintain records of the sale of ammunition.
·       It requires licensed ammunition dealers to report the sale of more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition to an unlicensed person within any five consecutive business days.
