    Listen to the exchange between O'reilly and this UT rep. O'Reilly is advocating that heavy weapon purchases and large amount of ammo purchased anywhere should get reported into a system that the FBI monitors. Meaning you buy a gun that is one the list or large amounts of ammo, then the FBI gets alerted to it and can investigate it. It's not making a restriction nor is it infringing on gun ownership rights. I mean if you buy certain cough medicine they enter it into a system to make sure your not buying it to make drugs out of it, why should it be any different with guns.

    First, I want to say I am an owner of a gun that would probably be on the list -Saiga 12. Nevertheless I think this is a great idea. However, I think every gun should go into a database that the FBI and ATF monitor for irregularities. I think ammo purchases should also go into a database and the FBI can look into it or not. Heck they monitor flight school enrollment, but ammo purchases.

    I think it just makes common sense!

    If you don't want to watch the short clip. The Cuba general tell his soldier to get the 4473 form so he can find out and arrest all the gun owners!

    One does not have to explain why they exercise their constitutional rights. One is assumed INNOCENT until proven guilty and the 4th and 5th Amendments protect you from the Government conducting a witch hunt.

    What you advocate violates both the 4th and 5th Amendments. And it violates the intent of the 2nd. All lists designed as you advocate serve one purpose, to identify where and whom owns firearms and serve only one purpose, to aid in the eventual seizure by force.

    I load my own ammo. What you going to do about that?

    Then there's the unintended consequence of registering/monitoring ammunition purchases such as the thriving black market for ammo that will inevitably emerge. Won't that be wonderful, more profit potential for the gangs.

    Wow, OK, now I'm impressed. You must live in a tough hood. Best I can do is a full-auto AR and a few frags.

    And you believe this will stop crazies from getting ammunition? Thinking that the Colorado shooting wouldn't of happened? The guy that built bombs and booby trapped his apartment...couldn't manage to score ammunition if online sales were regulated?

    Are you drunk?

    I think if you download too much porn in one day, a big red firebell should go off at the Department of Homeland Security and a team of investigators should be deployed to your house to find out if you are a rapist.

    I think if you post too many times on a political websiste, you should be investigated to see if you are a terrorist.

    I think if you buy too many Batman comics, you should be investigated to see if you are a movie theater shooter.
