Senate Bill 12, introduced by State Senator Ronald Ramsey (D-43), would prohibit the manufacture, sale and possession of any handgun ammunition that does not contain a unique code. This legislation is a back door gun registration scheme and ammunition ban.
SB 12 would prohibit the possession of any non-coded ammunition and require a unique identifier on the base of any new bullet. The bill will also require manufacturers and vendors of handgun ammunition to keep a record of all ammunition sales, which will be entered into a database maintained by the Department of Public Safety. The database would include the sale or transfer date, name of the purchaser, driver’s license number of the purchaser or other governmental issued identification and date of birth.
SB 12 has not yet been assigned to a committee.
