Response to Warren Stupidity (Reply #163)

207. I think most people agree that carrying it should require a license. I certainly do

Which is why my weapons are registered as they're supposed to be. When I transport them to a gun range I always do so unloaded with the ammunition far away from the weapons, although in my state that's not actually required by law. I do that to show any police officer who might pull me over that I had no intent to be packing an arsenal, so that he or she will view it as credible that I'm simply headed to the range.

I wouldn't object to "licenses" to buy ammunition if it served a purpose. If the police can trace bullets used in the commission of some crime back to a certain batch of rounds sold in a certain area, and through investigation can then prove who ultimately bought them, I think that would be a good thing. I'm not an FBI forensic analyst so I don't know if that's possible or not. But if it isn't it would seem like just another layer of regulation which doesn't serve much of a tangible aim other than to inconvenience usually legal gun owners. But like I say, maybe that is possible, and if it is I'd support it.
