New Jersey Democrat Pushes Federal Ammunition Registration Scheme

This time, they are proposing registration scheme that would drive up the price of selling ammunition online and create a database of ammunition purchasers in the Department of Justice:

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12) will introduce a bill in congress Tuesday to place restrictions on the sale of ammunition online.

The bill would require that federally licensed ammunition dealers confirm the identify of their customers by verifying a photo identification and if those customers purchase more than 1,000 rounds within five consecutive days, their identifies would be passed along to the U.S. Attorney General.

“This gives the ability to monitor large ammunition purchases and flag them for law enforcement,” said Watson Coleman, speaking at a press conference at the Serenity Garden at the corner of Prospect Street and Bellevue Avenue in Trenton.

“There are plenty of ways that we monitor the purchase of firearms, but when it comes to ammunition regulation seems to stop,” Watson Coleman said. “There is nothing keeping an individual intent to commit a large-scale atrocity from rapidly and anonymously stockpiling the means to do so.”

Watson Coleman has support from her congressional colleague and co-sponsor Frank Pallone (D-6).

Documentation requirements would drive up the cost of doing business for online retailers, many of whom exist on thin profit margins.
