The thing is, in theory at least, a constitutionally protected right can’t be burdened unless there is both a compelling state interest in the restriction and the restriction is tailored to the minimum necessary to achieve the goal.
Their thinking runs this way:

OK, fine. The stupid Supreme Court said you have a right to own a gun. They were wrong and we hate it, but I guess we're stuck with it.
BUT, they didn't say the ammo was protected, so we'll go after that.
Thing is, if we look at restricting ammunition, an analogy could be drawn to the unsuccessful attempts to tax ink for newspapers.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
