On Dec 14, 2012, 17+ elementary school children were shot in CT. Earlier during the same week, a gunman opened fire on innocent people at a shopping mall. Months earlier people were shot in a movie theater. And this is all in addition to the senseless murders happening every day as innocent people are shot in cross fire, on public transportation vehicles and more, in our cities and towns. The gun lobby will not allow the passage of gun control but we MUST do something to make people responsible and  stop the killing. If we cannot control the guns, let's control the ammunition...and make those who buy, sell, house or pass along the ammunition responsible for the deaths they cause, if they do not keep the ammunition safe and off the streets.

      I want automatic and semi-automatic weapons barred from private ownership, but there are thousands of automatic and semi-automatic weapons already in private possession legally or illegally. I think we can stop future purchase of ammunition for these weapons by making the manufacturer, seller and buyer legally responsible for the the deaths and injuries caused by the actual ammunition.
