  • DJDNY, there are some restrictions on the sale of ammo... not just anyone can but it... Federal law imposes several restrictions on the transfer and possession of firearm ammunition. The law prohibits the possession of ammunition by convicted felons, controlled substance users, and anyone subject to a domestic violence restraining order, among others, and it prohibits transferring ammunition to such persons as well. It prohibits the sale or transfer of (1) long gun ammunition to anyone under age 18 and (2) handgun ammunition to anyone under age 21. It also strictly regulates armor-piercing handgun bullets. States have their own restrictions as well....

  • Not really, no. These few, inconsequential things may be happening right now in the immediate aftermath, but they won't continue, nor will they make any difference.

  • "Interestingly, some reports say sales of guns have increased following the shooting, likely at least in part because consumers fear stricter gun laws could limit their access."

    That's the part of the article that I don't like. I hope people aren't out buying guns just because they're afraid of not being able to get them anymore in the future. Like all of the pro gun people have been saying the past few days.. things done out of fear usually turn out badly.

    ^^ I hope not. This is what scares me. People rush out and buy guns. You can't just go out and buy a car, you need a license and insurance. Hell if yu go to Walmart you have to shoe ID to buy cold medicine but you can buy bullets right off the shelf. That just not make sense to me.

  • Knee jerk reactions. The guns didn't kill those children...the guy did.

    There was a guy on the news tonight. He was showing how fast it is to load a magazine...no matter the size....just a flash of a second. Putting limits on legal gun owners won't keep people from stealing guns to commit a crime.

    No, you cannot. It's these lies and myths (which a lot of the media are GLEEFULLY spreading) which are adding to people's fear. Once again I'll ask, anyone who has anxiety or concern about guns after Friday, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do some research and educate yourself, because lying to you sells more adspace on tv than telling you the truth.

  • As for the gun sales increasing - this happens every time Obama mentions gun control or ammo restrictions. It's not people reacting to Friday, it's people reacting to Obama, like they have been for 5 years already. It's why there have been long stretches of ammo shortages, because he keeps threatening to tax the hell out of it. It's not reactionary, it's economic.
