Ammunition ban

Re the March 3 article U.S. considers banning type of popular rifle ammunition: This proposed ban is an absolute infringement of the rights of the American people. It seems to stem from the anti-gun advocates’ desire to disarm law-abiding citizens. They should remember how this country won its freedom.

It’s amazing how anyone could possibly believe that the weapons are the problem in this country. It isn’t the weapons, but the individuals or types of individuals who are causing this hysteria. If this ban goes through, then what? When is the next ban? What will be the next ban?

The easiest way to oppress people is to disarm them and keep them in submission. Do something about the psychologically challenged and the criminals. Don’t take it out on law-abiding citizens.
