Backdoor Ammo Bans

See now also "Correction: Backdoor Ammo Bans."

The lamestream media told you:

"I respect the Second Amendment," according to Barack "Hope" Obama, Joe "Gun-Friend" Biden, and all politicians running for office from both parties.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The anti-rights candidates have so far refused to reject and repudiate proposals made last year by anti-rights supporters for draconian gun bills that would basically outlaw guns and ammunition over a period of several years. Widely defeated when government was under control of the do-little Republican party, the viciously anti-gun-rights Democrat party cannot be relied upon to maintain that course, on a model bill introduced in 18 states that would have required:

All ammunition to be encoded by the manufacturer with a data base tracking all ammunition sales; no one could sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 under the failed proposal unless the ammunition was coded; any privately held non-coded ammunition would have to be destroyed by July 1, 2011 (including handloaded ammo); and a tax of at least five cents on every round, considered by some to be way too low.

This is the kind of thinking out there in the anti-rights community -- Obama's constituency -- who managed to get this legislation introduced 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.

It's not everything they want, but "it's a good start."
