SACRAMENTO – It used to be that the guns were the fuel that contributed to people committing violence. Now, according to the Washington Post, one California Democrat says that its the ammo that fuels the violence from the gun that fuels the person and he wants to include all ammo purchases into California’s comprehensive background checks.
“Anyone can walk into any gun store, a bait and tackle store, and purchase all the ammunition they want to, no questions asked.” said State Senator Kevin de Leon. “The ammunition is the fuel that feeds the violence. The gun itself, the hand gun or long gun or the high-powered weapon is the delivery device. The gas, the fuel, is the ammunition, and no one knows who buys it.”
Some states have regulated how much ammunition someone can have on them at one time, but no states have so far included ammunition in the regulatory process. The legislature is expected to take up the idea of ammunition regulation in 2014 at the request of the Governor.
