Subject: National Ammo Day
A brief explanation - What is National Ammo Day?
November 19 is National Ammo Day.
It is a nationwide BUYcott of ammunition. You buy
ammunition. 100 Rounds a person.
The goals of Ammo Day:
The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition
from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or
hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of
law-abiding citizens. Make your support of the Second
Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!
There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United
States of America. If each gun owner or Second Amendment
supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that's 7.5 BILLION
rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!
The gun/ammunition manufacturers have been taking the brunt
of all the frivolous lawsuits, trying to put these folks out
of business. Well, not if we can help it! And we CAN help
it by buying ammunition on November 19!
In NY State: Show pistol permit to buy pistol ammo. Ammo must match one of
the guns listed on the permit. Rifle ammo: Nobody's ever asked me for
anything but money.
NYC may or may not be different. I have no idea.
Actually, last time I bought ammo at [unnamed store], I didn't even get the
permit out of the clear sleeve in my wallet. The guy said "That's OK - I see
a fingerprint and green.", which is the color of the permit.
Thats why I am sure "heybub" is a bored housewife who just writes a lot
of dramatic but totally inaccurate nonsense to fill in the day.
This appears to be the governing laws in Texas:
Regulatory Licensing Service
Concealed Handgun Licensing Bureau
Concealed Handgun Statutes & Related Weapons Laws
Okay, oh learned one, tell me where I relayed "nonsense." In Texas, you do
not need a PERMIT to purchase a firearm. Some states, such as Illinois,
require a citizen to first obtain a FID - Firearm Identification Card before
they can purchase a gun/pistol. Some jurisdictions, such as D.C., require
you to obtain the pistol permit immediately after buying the gun but before
you take actual legal possession. The Texas law you cite has absolutely
nothing to do with purchasing a firearm.
We do not have gun "permits" of any kind in Texas. The closest thing is a
Concealed Handgun LICENSE. The distinction between a "license" and a
"permit" is, on its face, trivial, but the difference is sometimes great.
The words are often used interchangeably, but to most there is a difference.
A "permit" generally implies some sort of discretion on the part of the
issuing agency. A "license" is merely recognition that you've passed the
requirements (and paid a fee). You get a LICENSE for your car, but an
oversized load requires a PERMIT.
In Texas (and 37 other states), for concealed handguns, if you pass the
requirements, the state MUST issue the license. In places like California
and New York, which have "permits", the issuing authority can refuse to even
talk to the applicant.
That aside, I stand by my bored-housewife statement that no permits of any
kind are required in Texas to purchase a firearm or ammunition, nor do we
have pistol permits. Of any kind.
I defy you to show me where I'm wrong. I leave open the possibility that
you're a harridan trying to pick a fight.
As an aside, had you not insulted me and instead simply said: "Hey, bub,
what about this..." I would have responded: "Oops, I didn't make myself
clear. The thought I intended to convey was..."
No it does not.
The make, model, serial number, or identifying marks or tattoos of the
pistol you use to qualify is not recorded. Anywhere.
The only distinction is whether the pistol with which you qualified is a
revolver or an automatic. If you qualify with a revolver, you may carry only
a revolver, any revolver. If you qualify with an automatic, you may carry
any pistol, or more than one, of any mechanical operation method.
That is certainly different from Florida. Our "training" is mostly
legal in nature and not tied to any particular gun. In fact the
license allows you to carry any "concealed" firearm. That could be an
M60 if you had a long enough trench coat and the BATF form 4.
Personally I would prefer an HK MP5 if I was packing that kind of
It's not tied to any particular gun in Texas either. The only distinction is
"revolver" or "automatic." If you qualify with an automatic, you can carry
an automatic or a revolver. Qualification with a revolver limits you to that
type only. Virtually no one qualifies with a revolver.
