I read about this story and couldn’t believe it. This stupid politician wants to mandate that anyone who buys ammo in Mississippi be required to give their name address and either drivers license or social security number to the dealer. This information be kept in a state public database that anyone can look at. So if you buy ammo than you lose all rights to privacy. This database would be a gold mime for identity theft. How can one person be so stupid, well she is a politician after all.
Representative Omeria Scott (D-District 80) introduced House Bill 231. In her bill she proposes that anyone who sells ammunition in the State of Mississippi be required to keep records of each sale.
If passed, every merchant, dealer or pawnbroker that sells pistol or rifle cartridges, shall keep a record of all sales of such cartridges sold, showing the description of the kind and caliber of cartridges so sold, the name, address and driver’s license or social security number of the purchaser, and the description of and the quantity of cartridges and date of sale.
These records, which include social security number, name and address would be “open to public inspection at any time to persons desiring to see it.”
Representative Scott must not be concerned about her constituents privacy since she wants to publish everyone’s SSN, name and address. These folks like Rep. Scott and Sen. Jackson II do nothing but harm the State of Mississippi and its citizens.
The fight for freedom and liberty never ends, those who are seeking power and authority over us are always working to gain more power and influence and to take away liberty and freedom.
