Brooklyn Pols' Plan to Limit Ammo Purchases Pisses Off Gun Enthusiasts

Earlier this week, Brooklyn officials announced that they had drafted legislation aimed at severely restricting the sale of ammunition in New York.

The response has been overwhelmingly negative, if the Brooklyn Eagle's comment section is any indication.

The legislation would limit the number of bullets a gun owner could purchase over a 90-day time period to two times the capacity of the weapon, among other requirements.

Of more than 170 comments as of Thursday morning, 100 percent were against the proposed law.

Typical comments included:

- "So if I have a 1911, that takes 6 rounds, it would take a year to buy 1 full box on ammunition?"

- "Forget about doing any target practice!!!"

- "At a certain point, restricting access to ammo becomes effectively tantamount to disallowing private firearm ownership."

- "Hey tyrants, what part of shall not be infringed do you not understand?"

- "What do you expect from NYC. The only thing those people hunt for is a parking space- if they even have a car."
