    Its already started...Ammunition Accountability Legislation

    Remember how Obama said that he wasn't going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his minions and allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

    The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana)
    requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacture a data base of all
    ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers.
    Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

    Any privately held un coded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011. (Including hand loaded ammo.) They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

    If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun! (Read that sentence again)

    This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

    Get the word out and let's do what need's to be done to defeat this BILL!!

    Adam, it is not an issue of privacy, it is an issue of us not being able to use our reloads, and THEN of having to be at the mercy of VERY high prices for commerical ammunition.

    I looked at every state, and each senate bill seems to have been introduced early on in the 2008 legislative session. Some of them have already been stopped by the courts in those states, but some have just been shelved. Washington State is on pistol ammunition only, but the other states don't designate type of ammunition.

    Here's a list of some I was able to find:

    in Maryland: Defeated

    Connecticut: Defeated

    Mississippi: Died in committee

    Pennsylvania: Died in committee


    Kennedy also introduced a similar bill into congress as a proposal for federal regulation, but it didn't make it out of the senate.

    It is speculated that these will all be re-introduced in 2009.
