Hope this hasn't been hashed over in here already. I did a quick search and didn't find anything, I don't come to the RKBA forum much due to a couple of Trolls that frankly make me ill when I see thier names.

I received this from a friend who has a sister that works in a local gunshop.

Thought you might want to go to the site and see if this is for real or what...



This is just too stupid for words!!! IMHO I'll bet the new administration
would love to see this pass.
Ammunition Accountability Law
I’m not sure where the other states not mentioned are on this Ammunition
Accountability Law but this is serious legislation to all those that
participate in shooting sports.
Pending Legislation Regarding the Purchase of Ammunition
Remember how the Obamanation said that he wasn't going to take your guns?
Well, it seems that his minions and allies in the anti-gun world have no
problem with taking your ammo!

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states and requires all ammunition to
be encoded by the manufacturer, a data base of all ammunition sales. So
they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any
ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011.
(Including handloaded ammo.)

They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo
you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

If they can deprive you of ammo, they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona,
California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland,
Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

To find more about the anti-gun group that is sponsoring this legislation
and the specific legislation for each state, go to:


http://ammunitionaccountability.org/Legislation.htm



http://www.ammunitionaccountability.com



This is the reason that every citizen needs to stay on top of the up coming
new legislation and call, email and write you senator and representatives
and ask their stand on the right of self defense and firearms issues.

Been through it. An attempt by the company that has the "encoding" patents to make $$$$. It's been shot down everywhere so far.

It sounds like something that is unlikely to happen, and an attempt to whip up a scare story. Typically for such things, the mathematics are askew (remember the figures for the website suggesting that every American should be given his share of the banking bailout to square up his own finances instead, only they let the decimal point slip on the figures?) How big a box of ammo does it take to cost $2.50 extra with a tax of 0.05 cents per round? I suppose it must either be or not be $0.05.

Here, though, is a photo of the primer from an M16 case I picked up in Kuwait, at the top of a highway exit ramp where it is very unlikely that US or allied forces were engaged in the 1991 reoccupation. My military students told me it was the classic spot for a resistance ambush. You drive ahead of the Iraqi vehicle, then up onto the shoulder of the exit ramp, open fire as he passes it, and he has no choice but to take what is coming to him until he passes under the bridge. Then you have a wide choice of escape routes.

With one of the two M16s used, there has been a tiny pyramidal hole, made by slamming shut on an unusually hard grain of sand, into which the primer metal has been extruded. Why not have a tiny number engraved around the firing-pin hole of everybody's gun? A three-digit number would be circumstantial enough to make anyone dread losing an ejected case at a crime scene, and yet pose little danger to the innocent man, who could buy and keep pristine ammunition as at present.

Just use a revolver.

Why not take your tiny file or stone and remove that tiny number before you go and commit a crime? Or what if you jacked the gun or bought it from some guy in an alley and you don't care?
Or what if you don't use a gun but an IED, a rock, a bottle or a knife?

I've got a better idea. How about having everyone's shoes engraved with a tiny number on the sole and heel? That way you could instantly identify the perpetrator of a crime, regardless of what weapon was used.

don't stop there! Tracking devices, hooked up to satellites, that way we know where EVERYONE is at ALL times. We have to do it for the sake of the children!!!!

Anyhow, I too hope this thing goes nowhere.

Ah yes, the old chip in the butt proposal. Well, we do it to dogs and cats, why not people? Start with criminals. then politicians. But, I repeat myself...

Unfortunately, ammo control (or at least registration) HAS been practiced in the past. I recall in early 1970s having to sign a bound log book to buy handgun ammo, which of course, included .22 rimfire. I am frankly surprised that requirement hasn't resurfaced. It wouldn't be hard to expand on that. We lived with it and it was accepted.
I was living In Pennsylvania at the time I think but I thought it was federal, not state requirement although I could be wrong.
If I recall, the books had to be kept on hand at the seller presumably for inspection by BATF.
Granted I am approaching the doddering old fool senility phase but I am sure that was true.
Can't happen again?!?!? Or here?!?!? I wish I could be so sure.

It was a federal rule.

When I was a kid, I'd go to the local K-mart(closed now) and buy ammo. The guy that worked the sporting goods desk didn't care that we were 12, or 14, 15, or whatever we happened to be at the time. He's make a joke about seeing our ID just to make us panic, then he'd laugh it off and ring us up. About 3 year ago, the same guy won the Powerball Lottery and took home about 60 mil.* Just goes to show you that good things come to those who do good things.

*100% true story!
