Ammunition Accountability Legislation

I got this email the other day and had to know how much truth there is behind it. So I did some research.

This is what the email said;

Ammunition Accountability Legislation
Remember how Obama said that he wasn't going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his 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 uncoded 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 $1.00or more, a brick of 22's will go up enormously!
If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!
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.
Send to your friends in these states AND fight to dissolve this BILL!!
To find more about the anti-gun group that is sponsoring this legislation and the specific legislation for each state, go to:

"We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism."
- Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev, 1959

So I followed the website to and it is pretty much true.

Check it out for yourself; we all need to be aware that our way of life is being threatened!!

  2. There has to be a way to stop this from going throw!

  3. Yikes! I guess it's time to stock some extra ammo!

  4. I received that same email, and it's a critical situation for the gun owners in this country, not to mention the people as a whole. When you consider how the government has rammed this "porkulus" package down the throats of the American people without a single congressman or senator being allowed to read it, it IS time to buy all the ammunition you can, and keep it DRY.
    First the attack is on capitalism, and soon it will be on the 2nd ammendment, again. But, if the methodology is similar, it won't be a frontal attack... It will be a flanking manuever, such as this one...
