Gun rights activists are mobilizing against a new assault on the Second Amendment as a New Jersey Democrat is pushing a bill aimed at cutting down online ammunition purchases.
Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman introduced the bill Monday, claiming she’s trying to stop “unlimited” ammunition purchases over the Internet. But Second Amendment defenders see something darker at work in the “Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.”

The Democrat’s latest anti-gun stunt comes after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives retreated early this year from trying to ban a popular type of AR-15 ammo. Public backlash stopped the ATF from implementing its heavy-handed regulation, but that doesn’t mean the Democrats will stop trying – not by a long shot.
“Reforming the unregulated online ammo market could prevent the next gun tragedy,” co-sponsor o of the bill Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J. wrote on Facebook.
“Our bill to limit the online sale of ammunition is a long-overdue common sense reform that I am hopeful will spark Congress to put aside party difference and come together to help prevent such senseless tragedies,” Pallone continued.
Constitutional rights used to be something that most people in both parties agreed upon.
Pallone’s Facebook announcement of the bill was not well received judging from the comments taken from his page below:
Freedom-loving patriots are already working with pro-gun lawmakers to stop the latest ammo ban – which many see as just another backdoor gun-grabbing scheme.

Good timing, because these days, you do “never know.”

@thehill If the authorities and military can’t coral ISIS, we might need all the ammo we can lay hands on. — larry melton (@Packerlegends) May 13, 2015
@thehill They can’t control street guns and they can’t control street ammo, so they go after anyone they can!

@thehill Of course they want to ban online ammo sales. Unsuccessful in banning guns so they want to dry up ammo supply. — Ron Donahoe (@RonDonahoe) May 13, 2015
That certainly seems to be the Democrat’s modus operandi as of late.
