There's a new tactic to watch out for as I fear it will become a popular & effective one: when restricting firearms proves too difficult restrict the ammunition.

"The city bill, which has gained support from a handful of co-sponsors, including Councilmen Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans) and Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria), would require ammunition dealers to collect more information from buyers, including proof of permit, caliber, make and model of the weapon. The bill would also amend the city code to raise the minimum age limit for purchasing a rifle or shotgun from 18 to 21."

"This is something that we'd like to see replicated around the state," he said. "New York City can be a model for the rest of the state."

Keep your eyes open for this in your neck of the woods.
