(Rallying Patriots) – If you ever want to see a living definition of the term “hypocrite,” just look up Democrat policies concerning gun control and their aversion to requiring photo IDs for someone to be able to vote in an election.
This hypocrisy has once again been put on full display as Democrats in the state of Pennsylvania are not pushing a piece of legislation that would require a photo ID to buy ammo. And yet they will still fight tooth and nail against voter ID requirements.
They want to use illegal aliens to pad their voter rolls so that they can continue to commit voter fraud and stay in power permanently.
According to a new report from The Epoch Times, “A bill requiring photo identification to purchase firearm ammunition in Pennsylvania is intended to keep loaded guns out of the hands of minors, according to its sponsor, Democratic state Rep. Brian Kirkland.”
“Current law prohibits ammunition from being sold to anyone the seller has reasonable cause to believe is younger than 18 or 21 depending on the type of ammunition. However, sellers are not required to verify the buyer’s age by asking to see an ID,” the report continues.
“The legislation would require all ammunition buyers in Pennsylvania to provide an official form of photographic identification with every purchase of ammunition. It would reinforce current law, ensuring ammunition is not sold to children, without infringing on any individual’s Second Amendment rights, Kirkland said,” ET’s report adds.
“This is very safe legislation, “Kirkland went on to say to The Epoch Times. “I don’t think this is making it harder for anyone to get a gun. You get carded to buy alcohol or tobacco. There is no accountability for the person selling ammunition.”
The report goes on to say that the plan adds accountability by putting a $1,000 fine on sellers for their first offense, followed by a $2,000 fine for a second offense and up to a $3,000 fine for a third offense. After that, you could wind up with a 30-day prohibition on selling ammunitions.
“With the gun violence in my neighborhood (Chester, Pa.) and Philadelphia and Pittsburgh— you just see every time you turn the TV on, it’s a 15-, 16-, 17-year old being shot or doing the shooting,” Kirkland commented. “They are going to have illegal guns or ghost guns on the streets. They need ammunition to use them.” He added that some teens look like adults and currently it is possible for them to walk into a gun shop and buy ammunition.
“This seems like something we should have in place. If we can agree to make laws on alcohol and tobacco age limits, this should be something we can all agree on. We are not taking anyone’s guns away,” Kirkland added.
Currently, the legislation has 19 Democratic cosponsors. This isn’t the first time Kirkland has proposed this same measure. He first introduced it back in 2018 and has put it out there every year since. He revealed the bill has never moved to committee.
Gun Owners of America Pennsylvania’s Director Val Finnell said his group is absolutely opposed to this bill.
“There are already laws in place about purchasing ammunition,” Finnell said in a comment he gave to The Epoch Times.
The law in Pennsylvania has made it a misdemeanor for a person to sell ammunition or a deadly weapon to a minor.
“I don’t know why there are age restrictions to purchase ammunition. It’s just another restriction placed on our constitutional rights,” Finnell commented. “The Democrats are against voter ID laws. But they are for ID when buying guns and ammunition. To me, it’s just hypocrisy. There shouldn’t be a restriction.”
Again, these same people who want a person to present an ID to get a gun, will lose their minds if you mention providing identification to cast a vote. It doesn’t make sense, right?
