Liberals are truly seizing the day, using the fervor generated by this past weekend’s March For Our Lives rally and all the anti-gun sentiment floating around online to introduce a new bill that’s designed to control ammunition.

The new legislation, which was recently announced by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, would require folks looking to buy ammunition to submit to a background check.

The Daily Caller has more details:

“You do not have the right to bear bullets,” said Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz at a press conference Monday announcing the introduction of a bill that would require instant background checks to purchase ammunition.

The Ammunition Background Check Act was introduced by Wasserman Schultz in the House and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in the Senate. Like its name implies, it would require anyone looking to buy bullets to be subjected to background checks, similar to the one required to purchase a firearm in the first place.

This is simply a “backdoor” measure to place more strict gun control laws in place without actually controlling the weapons themselves. This allows establishment politicians on both sides to back a bill that isn’t technically gun control, but will also please Democrat voters.

After all, what good is it to own a gun if you don’t have ammunition?

How sad is it that a woman who is a government representative of an entire segment of the United States population doesn’t understand that the Second Amendment right to bear arms obviously includes ammunition, as they are a part of what makes a gun an “arm” to begin with?

It seems people in this country are having a real hard time grasping that whole “shall not be infringed” part of the amendment, doesn’t it?
