Background checks for ammo is redundant and unnecessary. If you have already checked for the weapon itself why go through the expense of doing it for what the gun uses? It is illogical and a waste of money...something our government must be behind.

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal has plans to introduce a bill that if passed would require background checks on ammunition purchases. It's called the Ammunition Background Check Act and late yesterday Blumenthal took to Twitter to explain his position by posting the following graphics.

"Ammo sales need same instant background checks as guns. I'm introducing the Ammunition Background Check Act," Blumenthal wrote.
