Anti-gun leftists in Congress are seeking a backdoor approach to gun control: They’re going after ammo.

As reported by The Western Journal on Sunday, Democratic lawmakers — Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, as well as Reps. Robert Garcia of California and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida — have filed a bill restricting access to ammunition.

Their bill, the Ammunition Modernization and Monitoring Oversight Act, would require businesses that sell ammo to obtain and possess the same federal licenses as gun dealers.

Moreover, the bill would restrict bulk ammunition sales and mandate background checks for bullet buyers.

“We have a moral responsibility to treat gun violence in this country like the crisis it is,” Warren said,” Warren said in a statement. “The Ammunition Modernization and Monitoring Oversight (AMMO) Act is a common-sense step to restrict ammunition sales, strengthen federal oversight of those sales, and help end the epidemic of gun violence in America.”

Wasserman-Schultz, a Fort Lauderdale Democrat, said in a statement, “No family should endure the pain of losing a loved one to gun violence. “I’m proud to work with Congressman Robert Garcia and Senator Warren to introduce comprehensive legislation closing the ammunition loophole in our gun safety laws. This bill will save lives.”

Western Journal noted the bill is modeled after a California state law that requires ammo purchases only from state-approved vendors, and mandates background checks for that.

The bill would also ban out-of-state purchase for bullets as well as transactions for someone to buy ammo for someone else.

Under the bill, ammo buyers would be limited to purchases of no more than 100 rounds of .50 caliber ammo and no more than 1,000 rounds for other types of ammunition in a five-day period.
