Poll: Should Government Limit the Sale, Ownership of Ammunition?

Shooting spree at Oikos University in Oakland revives the issue of how to control gun violence.

The Second Amendment assures Americans the right to bear arms. But in light of the latest shooting tragedy at a Christian college in Oakland, voices are being raised about ways to limit gun violence. One idea might be ammo control, which could blunt the ability of killers to reload—as James Huberty did July 18, 1984, when he fatally shot 21 people at a San Ysidro McDonald’s before being felled by a SWAT sniper. Huberty reportedly used 257 rounds of ammunition. Should ammo be limited?

Be easier to get rid of guns than alcohol. I'll drink to that., hic.

Gun control only aids and abets the criminal element. It is illegal to carry a loaded firearm on your person or in your vehicle without a conceal carry permit. Our current sheriff only gives these permits to cops, PIs, politicians and those who contribute generously to his campaign, and so did most of our former sheriffs. For a gun to be effective as a defensive weapon Mr or Mrs Citizen would have to carry his or her gun at all times. The criminal only has to carry his gun at the time and place he intends to commit a crime, drastically reducing his chances of being caught in violation of PC 12020. Any high ranking law enforcement official understands this. The people pushing gun and ammunition control are doing so because they have nothing but contempt for us. And you keep re-electing these people.

I'd rather be safe and risk a weapons charge for carrying without a permit.

Yeah, but they'll put you away. You won't be cited and released like a street ganger.

I believe all Congressmen and Executive branch members should be required to strap on a pistol or a shoulder strapped AK 47 while in session. I'll just bet they would start compromising and get something done. Like in the old days, wouldn't you just love to see Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan duel on the White House lawn?.
