The latest to join that movement appears to be Detroit.
The Detroit City Council approved a “Bullet Bill” gun control resolution Wednesday with a unanimous vote.
The resolution limits ammunition amounts that can be bought while requiring a mental health background check on buyers of ammo in Wayne County. Commissioner Reggie Reg Davis of the 6th district spearheaded the resolution.
As part of a proposed Wayne County “Bullet Bill” ordinance, additional county taxes would be imposed on the purchase of ammunition with revenue going to assist victims of gun violence and educational programs with a focus on conflict resolution, administrative costs.
“It has to stop,” said Reggie Reg Davis. “We must stop this. We can’t continue to be a killing field.”
So taxing, and limiting ammo will stop criminals and thugs? Good Freaking Grief the stupid burns. This will have zero effect on bad guys, but will hurt the poor, who often live in the worst neighborhoods. Again, another stupid idea that seeks to reform bad people by punishing good people.
Then there is Boulder, Colorado
Residents of Boulder, Co., have until December 27 to “certify” their “assault weapons” or remove the firearms from city limits. Those who fail to comply could face fines, jail time, and confiscation and destruction of their firearms, according to the Denver Post.
Boulder police say they have certified 85 firearms since the city council passed an “assault weapons” ban in May. Residents who already owned prohibited rifles, pistols, and shotguns were given the chance to keep their firearms by certifying prior ownership with police. The council also voted unanimously to ban “high-capacity” magazines and bump stocks.
“My hope is that we will see more bans at the state level and one day at the federal level so these weapons will no longer be available,” Councilman Aaron Brockett said in May.
What a dunce! They will still be available to violent criminals
Boulder police Sgt. Dave Spraggs stressed to the Post that no records or paperwork are kept of these certifications. He claims that police only keep a “handwritten count” of how many rifles residents certify.
So, making lawbreakers out of people who own legal firearms will make bad people good somehow….? Many folks are wise enough to know that registration will lead to confiscation. That is how Leftism works
