    If you say its impossible, it is.   Force the opposition / NRA to argue against it, at least.   I'd love to be able to say 'no law abiding citizen would have any cause for concern.'

    As for this shooting, mom and son were using a ton of ammo probably every weekend.   At some point they'd run out.  

    Did the boy, who also was shooting at these ranges, pass a background check?   Would his obvious mental issues escape notice with the local police?

      Nationalizing the ammunition industry (which is essentially what you are proposing) is certainly a good place to bargain from, and much better than just giving up.

      I think in the end, the most that the electorate will tolerate, even now, is regulation of the private industry (hopefully including private sales such as gun shows, not just "shops").   But it might be easier to get that if you stake out your ground further toward the side of govt as supplierr rather than just regulator.
