Our Ammunition Will Be ILLEGAL

Have you guys heard about the Ammunition Accountability Act?

If you haven't then this is something to be aware of. Check out this website:


Basically they can't go after our weapons so they ARE going after the ammo!

All ammunition will be laser engraved; on the underside of the bullet AND inside the shell casing.

Here's the proposed law for the state of Indiana:

Encoded ammunition. Requires ammunition manufacturers to encode all ammunition: (1) provided for retail sale in Indiana; and (2) used in handguns and assault weapons; by July 1, 2009. Prohibits a person from selling ammunition at retail after June 30, 2009, unless the ammunition has been encoded by a manufacturer. Requires the superintendent of the state police department to establish and maintain an encoded ammunition data base before July 1, 2009. Requires ammunition manufacturers and persons who sell ammunition at retail to provide certain information concerning encoded ammunition sales and persons who purchase encoded ammunition to the superintendent for inclusion in the data base. Imposes a fee of $0.05 per round on the sale of encoded ammunition that is sold at retail. Requires the fees to be deposited in the encoded ammunition data base fund to operate the data base. Requires a person who owns ammunition for a handgun or assault weapon that is not encoded ammunition to dispose of the ammunition before July 1, 2011. Makes an appropriation.
Indiana, and most states, DO NOT have a gun registration so they want to register our ammo.

Here is all the states where this act is being proposed:

This is not new ... this has been well planned for quite some time. NOTHING will be gained by the passing of this law accept more controll over the people.

Abraham Lincoln:
Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

IIRC, this bill is already dead in most of the states it was introduced in, including California.

Suffice it to say that if they can't get this to fly in California, it's probably not going to fly anywhere.

As Huey says, it's already dead in most every state.

It's also been reported here many, many times.
