Unsurprisingly, I voted no. When someone with guns, mental illness, and a tendency toward violence and revenge like the Colorado theater shooter, who bought over 6,000! rounds of ammo on the Internet, can anonymously get unlimited ammunition online, something's got to change.

For the ones above who voted yes, why? If you think it should continue as it is, do you think sales should be limited per customer? Do you feel safe knowing people with mental illnesses and gang members can do this? What's your thoughts? I'm just curious.

This is ridiculous! I don't feel safe for children due to the availability of pornography on-line that can be viewed by the sexual prediator. The box of ammunition does not cause mental anguish that leads to violence. Anything can be purchased to an extreme. My wife has countless pairs of shoes but only two feet. I would like to see a limit to the number of shoes one person can buy. Or cans of peas! I suffer extreme agony to see multiple cans of peas in the cabinet, one is too many. What about alcohol, why do people need to have multiple bottles of booze. How many people have died at the hands of a drunk; ie, driver, in a fight, ect. Things are not the problem - people are! You cannot legislate sanity!

Do you think our government should have nukes? Should they kill US citizens with drones? What about our submarines, aircraft carriers and fighter jets?

Oh and let's not forget the grenades, machine guns, etc. our military has.

Isn't it interesting how the government would be the only entity left with weapons?

Perhaps it is a way to further enslave the idiots in this country?

Could be!

So we just go round and round with the same old bullshit while children die in schools from guns, people in public places are mowed down by people who have unlimited access to weapons and the ammunition required by them. Come on gangs may steal their ammo but the point is they can and probably do order their ammo via the internet which is not monitored or controlled. You can get the weapon by ordering it over the internet but may have to present ID to pick it up at the gun shop. You know I am not totally against gun ownership, just specific types of weapons and the availability of unlimited ammunition. Come on guys something has to give here. We are not a third world nation where the government changes everyday, we have over 200 years of peaceable transfer of power. Tyranny is not an excuse to keep the guns, you don't need an assault weapon to hunt, (if you do you shouldn't be hunting), home protection can be accomplished with a shotgun or baseball bat. Lets get real here and start thinking of a way to help solve the problem instead of trying to pretend it does not exist.

Don't start suggesting that we all arm ourselves with baseball bats for home protection or we will have to start background checks on our kids when they enroll in Little League...lol

To order ammunition on-line requires the same identification as it does to purchase in a shop: a copy of a valide drivers license. To purchase a firearm on-line requires that it be shipped to a dealer with an active ffl and he is required to do the same background check that is conducted as if the firearm was purchased in his shop. The problem is still with the people that disire to harm another human being. We have laws against assault, murder, robbery, etc., but that doesn't hinder them from doing harm. If that desire could be changed more would be accomplished. Mankind is becoming less sensity to others.

Assault weapons are not as you portray. assault weapons have a selector switch so they may be used either fully auto or semi auto. state laws require hunters to use 5 round clips only in thier weapons when hunting.
Food for thought on your part. If I know what you can have to defend yourself, I can prepare for it.
Your idea of a baseball bat and molotov cocktails does have merit though.

There ain't no law about 5 round clips. If there is, show us. Limits on caliber but not magazines.

Some company websites require it, some don't:

http://www.cga.ct.gov/2012/rpt/2012-R-0390.ht...

"Some companies post eligibility criteria for, and restrictions on, online ammunition purchases; others do not. Typically, those that post this information require purchasers to meet federal criteria for purchasing ammunition, which are the same as for firearm purchases. They require buyers to submit proof of age and “affirm” or “confirm” that they meet the criteria. The websites do not specify any other steps, if any, the companies take to verify that buyers are eligible."
