      I was thinking simply in terms of making the higher price of ammunition unavoidable: punitive tax or black market premium?

      But if the only people trafficking in illegal bullets are the kind of psychos that work in the drug trade, that might also make a lot of people think twice about not just paying the heavy tax for a legal bullet.

      Politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.

        and ammo possession like the republicans did about marijuana and find 10000 ways to shuffle those who violate them into private prisons.

        That way people can still have their guns and most people who DO handle them responsibly will have nothing to fear.

        People need to be stiffly encouraged to treat guns with tremendous respect.

        That's not happening currently.
