Some 70 percent of ammunition is for non-hunting use, primarily target practice, according to a survey of its members by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
"The consumption of 1,000 rounds or more is often routine for a weekend trip to the range," the foundation said in a note opposing ammunition regulation.
And while target shooters need to buy in bulk, criminal shootings involve less than four rounds, on average, said Lawrence Keane, the foundation's senior vice president, quoting a 2003 study of Jersey City, New Jersey, police records in the early to mid-90s.
So tracking bulk purchases will primarily track the activity of target shooters instead of criminals...........That tells me that if something like this is enacted, the true purpose is simple harrassment of target shooters.....average Joes.......

The idea of being ID'ed for a perfectly legal activity ought to make a free man puke.
The thought of being proven innocent of a crime by giving up a thumbprint so that you are "ok to buy ammo" ought to enrage a free man.
Reading some of these posts make me realize that as a country,we really are screwed, and there is no turning back.
Its over...most of us just dont realize it yet.

I remember having to put my thumbprint in a book every time I bought ammo. It was a pain, you had to find the employee with the ammo key and they had to find the book, etc...

Most gang houses here have a punch bowl of stray ammo. If they steal some ammo that doesn't fit their gun it goes in the punch bowl! Our gang team looks for these bowls to know if they are in a real gang house, or just an associate's house. For Me its just more confirmation that criminals don't buy ammo, they steal it. DR

Talk about painting us all with a broad brush. Why not keep guns and bullets from criminals and leave the rest of us alone? It just seems like they take the easy way out which is to punish everyone for the actions of a few.
