Since Gun Banning Has Failed Them, Liberals Now Trying to Stop Us From Buying Bullets

You don’t have Second Amendment rights unless you can buy ammunition. But that is the most common way that liberals are trying to institute a defacto gun ban now that their repeated efforts to ban guns has failed them. This month yet another ammunition ban is being proposed by House Democrats.

This time what they want to do is stop Americans from being able to buy ammunition[1] over the Internet from Internet-based companies.

Thirty-one House Democrats have proposed legislation that would prevent people from buying ammunition online, and would instead require all purchases to be made in person — a change they admit is aimed at preventing people from buying “unlimited” ammunition over the Internet.

The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act, from freshman Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), would also require all ammo dealers to be licensed by the government, and require bulk ammo purchases to be reported to the government.

Naturally they are claiming it will “prevent gun violence,” but of course they spent no time trying to prove that. They just stated it as fact and then based their defacto gun ban on the lie.

Now, here is the thing. As I noted above, if you can’t get ammunition you really don’t have any Second Amendment rights.

This is a point that even founding father Thomas Jefferson well understood.

In his Report on Navigation of the Mississippi written in 1792, Jefferson wrote, “It is a principle that the right to a thing gives a right to the means without which it could not be used, that is to say, that the means follow their end.”

In other words, if we have no right to the tools of the Second Amendment, then we really don’t have a Second Amendment. No ammunition, then no rights.
