    Bullet Control

    Not so sure if there is a poll on this already.

    For pro-gun rights and anti-gun rights people, what do you think about controlling the distribution or the sale of bullets instead of guns?

    I don't really admire the 2nd Amendment, in my opinion, it's too unclear. I would vote for gun restrictions anywhere in the U.S. However, I have been thinking that maybe bullet control is better than actual firearm control.

    Please explain your decision.

    Police can not prevent bad guys from getting guns and using them against you.

    The idea, fear or reality of armed citizens stepping up to deter or stop an armed bad guy is the only hope you have until the police come.

    Absolutely not. Treason and tyranny on behalf of anyone whom advocates this sort of rubbish against the innate and inalienable rights of the individual. Not only do you not know if the cops would show up to save you, you don't know when you may have to shoot at the cops. The purpose of the right to keep and bear arms is so the People have an ultimate check on the authority, and that's the way it needs to remain.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Re: Bullet Control

    The purpose of gun rights is so that responsible gun owners may use their weapons to defend themselves and their communities.

    Ammunition control is just an attempt by people who do not recognize this fundamental moral principle to circumvent the laws which protect it.

    This is silly.

    This is as much an infringement on the right to arms as controlling words is an abridgement of the right to free speech.

    I don't really admire the 2nd Amendment, in my opinion, it's too unclear.
    Only to those that want to strip law abiding people of their right to arms.

    A bullet is part of firearms. It would be no different banning firing pins,trigger mechanism and any other essential part of the firearm.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    The Second Amendment is crystal clear to any who can read the English language. The right to keep and bear arms "shall not be infringed." In any age, the meaning of that phrase is unequivocal--government is denied the power to regulate weapons.

    Favoring gun restriction is anathema to the Constitution. Favoring restrictions on ammunition is anathema to the Constitution. Favoring restrictions on weapons ownership of any kind is anathema to the Constitution.

    No man who cherishes his liberty and desires to see the Constitution continue as the supreme law of this land has any business supporting any form of weapons restriction, and that includes ammunition regulation.

    What's unclear about "shall not be infringed"?

    The meaning of the word "people" is clear, right?

    The only bullet control required is being able to reliably put the thing where you want it to go.

    Re: Bullet Control

    It's a bit silly since a lot of gun owners can simply make their own bullets if need be and I'm sure it can't be too hard for criminals to do the same if they can't get the bullets in any legal way.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Sorry, but this question reminded me of an Ali G skit where he goes to a gun control group and asked straight faced if banning bullets was an option... the guy answered straight... it's a howler.
