One of the things I've always found alarming in the manner to prevent gun violence especially if lawmakers and elected officials are serious about its prevention is the lack of a strong consistent federal ammunition law. The current ammunition laws are to ineffective and fluctuate according to state. A much stronger ammunition law needs to be devise and it should be utilized throughout the United States. Not half, several or even a dozen states; but all states should obey by these set of laws inconsistent is one of the many reasons why gun violence is problematic now. Remember, "There's Strength in Numbers" if we our to get the desire change we seek we are going to have to unify, after all our very country name itself symbolic of the meaning. WE ARE The United States of America-yet we greatly differ on so many important issues and topics such as this one.
For something that seems like every american will agree on unanimously isn’t. You will be surprised to know that the overwhelming majority of americans do indeed support laws in favor of ammunition regulation. A survey conducted by Fox News in January 2013 found that 80% of respondents supported laws requiring background checks on purchasers of ammunition. Why make it convenient for someone who has bad motivates to purchase ammunition? Unfortunately we happen to live in a world where everyone isn’t a law abiding citizen and illegal weaponry is scattered across the nation. The same stipulations that apply to firearm ownership should also be enforced on ammunition as well, if that’s not the case it’s not deterring the problem it’s only encouraging it.
According to gunfacts.info, a study showed that, “five out of six gun-possessing felons did not purchase a handgun or otherwise get one through legal means, but instead procured an illegal weapon through the secondary market, or by theft.” The bullet itself is actually, “The Agent of Harm”. Even though it’s still very possible to use a firearms independently as an weapon you decrease the changes for fatally because you make the ammunition less accessible.
