  •  Only Criminals Have Guns Since Guns are Registered (0+ / 0-)

    Most criminals who shoot now don't grind off the serial numbers. Few would engage in the much more complex, risky, time consuming and not in the image of the tough criminal activity of making their own ammo. Just as with serial numbers and gun registration it's not perfect, but catches a lot of people. Especially the dumb ones, who are the majority and who are likely to again do something stupid like shoot someone.

    The cost of registering the serialized ammo is negligible. Point of sale hits a state or Federal website with the ID type and number of the buyer. That can be built into any cash register for a few hundred bucks at most as part of the sale. Across each ammo sale the cost is negligible.

    Your attitude is that nothing can be done to control guns that's worth the cost. Without considering what is proven to have effect, or the actual cost. You're not interested in anything but spinning rejection of simple controls that would save a lot of lives, time and money. You're a gun fetishist.
