Those pesky gun owners need to foot the bill for the trauma occuring in the state! This will teach them.

And what's to keep Ill. residents from crossing state lines to buy ammo?. Does customs check you at the border as you leave the United States of America to enter Ill.?.

Funny you mention that. A friend of mine drove into indiana to pick up some fireworks on the fourth and troopers pulled him over as soon as he crossed the line. Apparently they had undercovers sitting in the parking lot watching ppl buy.

ATF has been watching va tabacco shops in va and calling it into troopers or pulling over ppl themselves. Obviously the article is talking about huge suggling rings but taking more than 2 packs into maryland is a fellony!!. Watch the video on the link.... Same thing will happen.

Another MD Fundraiser to keep their govt operating, relying on the destruction of their citizen's freedoms and wallets.

Are they going to tax the ups or fedex if say someone out of state sent to them ammo, or someone brigning ammo to them?

Retailers won't ship ammo to Illinois without the buyer's FOIC info. The only way to get your ammo is a out of state road trip. Just don't get caught.
