Measure Requires Photo ID For Firearm Ammo

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Legislation requiring people to present an official form of photo identification when purchasing firearm ammunition is being introduced. Currently, ammunition cannot be sold to anyone who sellers reasonably believe to be under the minimum age. However, sellers are not required to check a buyer’s ID to verify their age. The proposal would require identification be presented every time ammunition is purchased, helping to eliminate illegal sales. Sponsor of the legislation, Delaware County Rep. Brian Kirkland said that photo ID is required to purchase alcohol, allergy medicine, lottery tickets, and other items, so it is reasonable to require ID for purchasing the element that makes a firearm lethal. He said that his legislation would serve as reasonable reform to save lives without infringing on law-abiding citizens’ rights to own and use guns. Several states, including New Jersey, already require individuals to present ID when purchasing firearm ammunition.
