Ammo control is an idea that, as best as I can tell, started with a joke from comedian Chris Rock. He had a bit where he said that if ammo cost $5,000 per round, you’d stop seeing drive-by shootings. He may have a point. I mean, if you had to pay that much per round, you’re going to make damn sure the person you shoot is the person you meant to shoot.
But, of course, it’s a comedy bit.
More and more, though, some seem to have taken Rock seriously.
