I do believe NY tried to use the NICS system to do ammo checks and the FBI told them no. it's not in their mandate.
Interesting , I don't know the specifics of the NICS system but would think there's a box that needs to be checked long gun or handgun . If that box is not checked the system just stops until that box is check or allows the form to be completed only to later say they had incomplete info to process the check . I'm sure there are other parts as well that will lock up the system if you try to use it for ammo purchases . Either way I can see why ammo can't be checked using that system

44amp : I agree and think if argued correctly ( not that 'I' could ) that double standard should be able to be shot down . "If" the ammo background check is to stop prohibited person from buying ammo . Which seems logical , if your prohibited from owning firearms why do you need ammo ? Then why can't there new system be used for firearm purchases ? You're either prohibited or you're not ? right ??? Why would there be a need for two different checks and balances ?
Tolerate- allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something that one does not necessarily like or agree with , without interference.
If you have some time IMO this is worth a listen/watch but it takes a few minutes to really get going . or a picture of Mohamed
