They aren't yet, but it's only a matter of time until they are tracked as well. Only good thing is they can't do anything to you for buying ammo out of state, hopefully you live close to a border. I already plan on making monthly or semi-monthly trips to PA or OH for my ammo and reloading needs.
Most of them are long gone. Only major players are Remington and Kimber. I know a couple states have been trying to lure Remington away, this may be the final straw. I think the only thing that kept them here is loyalty to the town and region. Remington pulling out of Ilion will absolutely cripple Herkimer county and that part of the state, there is no real other major employer in the area. I can't see them continuing to produce firearms at that facility that residents of the state in which the firearms are produced can no longer legally own them. And I would have to think if they are no longer legal to buy, they probably aren't legal to manufacture or distribute.
If they legislate ammo, the next phone loophole will be reloading components; i.e., slippery slope argument. We need to hold our ground whether it be .223 or next it will be 12 gauge; i.e., divide and conquer. Keep in mind if these liberals get their way only our memories of the shooting sports will remain.

870- Since it appears that you read the law more thoroughly, what part was that in?
This is what I'm reading:

and it goes on to outline the registration and background check system.
Ian, see S. 58e at the very bottom. That is where the effective dates of the law are defined. The ammo checks are instituted at S. 50 of the bill, and S 58 states that section of the bill is effective 1 year after the bill is passed.
i think the ammo and component sales are the real slippery slope of this whole debate. high prices are a big part of the decline in sport shooting, new higher taxes on ammo combined with the hassle of just buying it wont help our cause one bit. you cant kill an elephant with a match, but if you burn down the hay pile, the end is easy to see.
