    Detroit Passes Its New ‘Bullet Bill’. Is NY Next?

    Detroit Passes Its New ‘Bullet Bill’

    Gun control hasn’t worked. This is an inescapable conclusion based on what we see. Despite having piles of regulations, crime plagues many areas, and people commit these crimes with guns despite all those laws.

    So the anti-gunners have started going after ammunition. Their thinking is that if you restrict the ammunition, criminals will suddenly become loving, caring people.

    The latest to join that movement appears to be Detroit.
    The Detroit City Council approved a “Bullet Bill” gun control resolution Wednesday with a unanimous vote.

    The resolution limits ammunition amounts that can be bought while requiring a mental health background check on buyers of ammo in Wayne County. Commissioner Reggie Reg Davis of the 6th district spearheaded the resolution.

    As part of a proposed Wayne County “Bullet Bill” ordinance, additional county taxes would be imposed on the purchase of ammunition with revenue going to assist victims of gun violence and educational programs with a focus on conflict resolution, administrative costs.

    “It has to stop,” said Reggie Reg Davis. “We must stop this. We can’t continue to be a killing field.”

    Davis’ family has suffered tragic losses from the violence.

    “I talk about my kid brother Vito, I also lost another brother, Keon, I lost my uncle,” he said.

    He said he was also sick of hearing about horrific shootings in Detroit daily.
    I get being sick of it. I get thinking it needs to stop.

    But does anyone with half a brain think that taxing ammunition will do a damn thing? Anything at all? It won’t.

    What it will do is make it more difficult for the law-abiding, particularly the poor. Taxes on the purchase of goods have a disproportional impact on the economically disadvantaged.

    That’s right. Detroit is hurting poor people.

    Meanwhile, it won’t do anything to the criminals that run rampant in Detroit. At worst, it’ll force them to buy ammunition elsewhere. That’s it.

    More likely, though, they’ll buy the ammo, laugh at the city’s ridiculous programs, and go right on committing every brand of atrocity that strikes their fancy. They won’t care.

    Look, I applaud Detroit for trying to get to the roots of violence. I’m glad it’s looking at ways to deal with violence without exclusively blaming guns. It’s about time someone was willing to do that.

    But this is stupid, if for no other reason than because it thinks funding it with an ammo tax is a smart way to approach it. It’s clear that Detroit’s still blaming guns for the violence, even if it’s not relying only on gun control to do it.

    It’s the same mentality, just slightly covered over.

    In the end, none of this is going to have the impact the city wants it to have, which will probably result in more stupidity. Detroit will probably point and talk about how this didn’t do anything, so more gun control is clearly needed, never recognizing that the programs it counted on changing things are, at best, minimally effective.

    If you’re in Detroit, I highly recommend you go ahead and stock up on your ammo now.

    I'm surprised that it's taken this long for the anti gunners to try this. The 2nd ammendment doesn't mention a thing about the guarantee to ammo to feed our firearms. I've long suspected that this would be the next big push by the anti's to further diminish our God given right to self preservation.

      "Mental health background check" before purchasing. That's not ripe for abuse now, is it? I love how they toss medical privacy under the bus when they want to get gun control but never to keep the EDPs off the streets.

        Yeah. That will solve their problems. Conflict resolution education.
        That will stop all the Baby Daddy's from splattering their baby batter up their Baby Mamas and making future drug dealers and gang members.

          Not making light of his family losses but 2 brothers and an Uncle lost, something tells me that all of them might not have been innocent bystanders... But then again - it is Detroit.

            What about pre-ban ammo? Private sales? Out of state purchases

            Oh, sorry, this is going to affect law abide citizens again. Scumbags need not worry, their supply lines and methofscare not impacted...BECAUSE CRIMINALS DGAF ABOUT NEW, OLD OR ANY OTHER KIND OF LAWS.

            Violate peoples HIPPA if they want t exercise their 2A rights. Ammo doesn’t have to be specifically mentioned. Absent the ability to be fired our guns are bats and paperweights.

              If the liberals spent 1/10th as much time trying to address the actual causes of this urban warfare and the people pulling the triggers as they do going full retard on pointless legislation and blaming inanimate objects for everything, the problems would have been fixed already. But they don't. So they're not.

                If you haven’t learned how to reload by now, it’s too late. Should’ve been hoarding components for years just because of this
