In the wake of the tragic ‘Dark Knight’ attack in Aurora Colorado, the media and gun control advocates seem determined to push the Democratic Party into renewing its push for more gun control. And there is no shortage of Democratic candidates willing to oblige regardless of the damage it might do to their party this fall.
Following on the heels of an amendment to the Cybersecurity bill to ban the sale, transfer or possession of normal capacity magazines, Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg is introducing a separate bill that would completely ban the online sale of ammo; the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.

If they had to relent, they might compromise by letting us press one round of ammo at a time, so long as we had the proper paperwork and permits, I suppose.

If the bad guys super capacity mag jams then life will be good!
