Margaret Hilpert: NRA gets it right

NRA gets it right

I never thought I would agree with much from the NRA, but then the Jan. 15 article “Online ammunition sales drawing scrutiny” had a quote that makes the case for those of us who support ammunition regulation as part of a strategy to reduce gun violence.

The NRA “argues on its website that banning online ammo sales ‘would turn back the clock to the days when ammunition was only available in person at licensed stores.’ ”

Well, yes, NRA, that is precisely the idea. Thank you for putting it so succinctly.
