The grassroots community organization, ACORN, is fighting for a new law it says will save lives.
"Stop the Bullet" is a campaign that would make it harder for felons to buy ammunition from stores.
When you buy a gun, gun shops have to run a background check first to make sure you're not a convicted felon.
Although it is also illegal for convicted felons to buy bullets, a background check is not required. As it stands now, gun shops aren't required to ask any questions before selling bullets, as long as the buyer is 18 and can present identification.
Community organizer for the local NC ACORN group, The Rev. Melvin Whitley, says it's too easy for criminals to buy ammo, and he plans to close that loophole.
ACORN'S initiative would expand the law to include ammunition, and may even include a requirement for bullet permits.
"The problem with the law is that it allows criminals to have access to bullets. And it's the bullets that's killing us," according to Whitley.
But gun shop owners disagree.
They feel it's just another way organizations are trying to take away their Second Amendment rights.
"We have to make it clear we are not talking about gun control, we're talking about bullets," said Durham City Council Member Howard Clement III.
Whitley stated his case before the Durham City Council Thursday in hopes that the council will add it to its legislative agenda. The council's legislative committee will determine whether the initiative has legs.
Whitley hopes to get the bill passed in a year.

Let's get ACORN off the streets and we won't need the background checks. Many of the criminals will be gone.

I can always ship a few of them Texas Squirrels out there to take care of them ACORNS.
Probably a good idea to 'check' your ammo when ACORN is around...

Ok, now even I'm going to say this is ridiculous to say the least. Their going to dang far now.
Color doesn't matter, stupidity knows no barriers. It is a shame.
You can't fix stupidity, maybe someday, they'll make a vaccine for it.

What else can this group come up with that sounds so absurd! This is the product with too much time on their hands. They need to get a hobby!
Maybe they could take up target shooting at a gun range? lol
"Gun control is being able to hit your target."
It would just create more criminal enterprise as a black market emerges to sell ammo to felons. Meanwhile, it infringes upon the rights of those who are law-abiding. My freedom should not be contingent upon the behavior of lawbreakers (and I don't mean the legislators). Of course, they never think these things through now do they?
Yes, the world has gotten smaller, but it will always be too big to be ruled by unelected bureaucrats.
They have about as much commons sense as the other NUTS (I.E. ELF and ALF) I just don't get it I tell my local pinheads that you know I don't need a gun to kill you as you stand here now....
