Lautenberg and his fellow Democrat Representative Carolyn McCarthy were announcing a bill that would put the brakes on the current market allowing Holmes to buy more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition online and without having even to reveal his identity.

“You don’t have to be a scientist to know how wrong this is,”Lautenberg said, referring to Holmes’ deadly shopping spree.

Under the proposed law, online sales of ammunition would end, only licensed dealers would be allowed to sell and they’d be required to report the sale of more than 1,000 rounds to anyone other than another license holder.

McCarthy, whose husband was killed in a 1993 shooting massacre on Long Island, said the bill “pulls ammunition sales out of the shadows and into the light, where criminals can’t hide and responsible dealers can act as a line of defense against the planning and stockpiling of a potential mass killer.”
