    this law would be illegal. most importantly due to the fact that a permit is only needed to CARRY a handgun outside the home. it is perfectly legal for a person to own and/or carry a handgun inside their own residence. there are LOTS of these types of people out there. and setting a law that makes it illegal for them to buy ammunition will leave them defenseless and their gun useless, and isn't much different than illegally confiscating their perfectly legal gun
