House Democrats have introduced a bill which seeks to restrict online ammunition purchases as well as track large orders. The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2015, introduced by Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), would require people who purchase ammunition online to display a photo ID in-person in order to receive the order. It would also require ammunition sellers to report to the Attorney General’s office any time they sell 1,000 rounds or more over a 5 day period to the same buyer.
