Years ago, Chris Rock did a funny bit about how bullet control would reduce gun-related fatalities. What he said was, basically, if you made ammo cost $10,000 per round, the gangbangers would end drive-bys and make sure they don’t hit anyone but the guy they meant to hit.
Of course, Rock’s delivery made it hilarious–and, obviously, no one slapped him in the face for it, either.
But that’s comedy. It’s not a serious policy recommendation. Unfortunately, “bullet control” or ammo control is a new battleground in the Second Amendment debate.
Over at USA Today, the paper that notoriously treated chainsaw bayonets as a common thing is now jumping on the ammo control bandwagon.
