In a January 6 op-ed admitting there is “zero” chance of congressional action on gun control, Ann Brown, a former Bill Clinton administration official, called on President Obama to expand his executive gun control with one more act: regulate ammunition sales.
Writing in The Washington Post, Ann Brown, who served as chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission during Bill Clinton’s presidency, said, “On Tuesday, President Obama unveiled a package of executive actions that he hopes will reduce gun deaths in the United States. I urge him to put one more proposal on the table: regulating ammunition. The idea is workable, and Americans could support it.”
Note: Brown said Americans “could support it,” not that they would support it. And she spends the rest of her op-ed presenting three reasons she believes Americans ought to get behind the idea of regulating ammunition the way the federal government regulates firearms. FULL REPORT
