Ammunition Regulation

The ammunition used in guns is what renders firearms lethal—yet ammunition sales are not subject to the same federal regulations as firearms19. In most states, ammunition can be bought in person or online without oversight.

Contact your representative about supporting ammunition background checks for regulating the sale and transfer of ammunition.
