    Guns/Ammo should not be deliverable by postal service. They should be delivered to local gun/amm dealer to be picked up by buyer. Then a face to face meeting would occur, ID could be verified and laws pertaining to that gun/ammo store could be implemented.

    Wolf, how can gun av-agates think it OK to buy over the counter or through the internet a100 round magazine along with a high powered a salt rifle and a 40 round pistol and the reason is go to hunting. Well we just seen Holmes go hunting alright but instead of animal it was people, women and children and men I guess the IRA can give this guy a big trophy that would say Granulation for the most people kill and wounded in US history presented to him by Dick Chaney.
    When I was in Army 1964-1968 I remember that our rifle was a M14 the magazine was 14 round, then the came the M15, with a 16 round magazine.
    and we fought in Viet Nam, because heat and heavy back pack you could curry eight load magazine and one in the rifle when given the order to lock and load, that would give a soldier 160 rounds. Holmes had more ammunition a total 187 rounds and shot gun shells when he entered the theater to go hunting.
