Conservatives know that bad people are the problem and no legislation can fix that 100%. Democrats, on the other hand, think that guns are the issue. But they’ve had trouble selling that narrative, so they’ve come up with a new plan. Dems want bullet control.
Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is leading the charge for bullet control. Co-sponsored by Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, Schultz introduced the “Ammunition Background Check Act” on Monday. As the name suggests, the Act requires background checks for all ammo purchases.
Speaking at a press conference the former DNC chairwoman said, “you do not have the right to bear bullets,” an obvious dig at Second Amendment supporters. On Twitter, Blumenthal claimed that bullets endanger lives.
“Without background checks on ammunition sales, there’s nothing to stop dangerous people – barred from buying guns – from amassing vast ammunition arsenals,” Blumenthal tweeted. “This ludicrous loophole puts lives at risk.”
Uh, no. What puts lives at risk Senator, is evil people with bad intentions. That, and laws that have no hope of stopping said people. If they can get guns illegally, then they can also secure ammunition.
To suggest otherwise, demonstrates a lack of common sense that is far more dangerous than guns.
Which, according to Schultz, are “useless hunks of metal” without ammo. “I really think it’s important to underscore that without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal, and a would-be killer lacks the means to actually kill or maim.”
The Trouble with Bull
We hate to break it to her, but even with bullets, a gun is useless without someone to pull the trigger. Of course, you can’t explain that to people who don’t know the difference between the difference between law-abiding citizens and criminals.
Although we know that to Leftists like Schultz and Blumenthal, when it comes to gun owners there is no difference.
