Illinois State Rep Sonya Harper (D-ERP), has a brilliant solution to the escalating problem of criminal violence in Chicago.
No, it isn’t keeping violent criminals in prison by curbing early release.
No, it isn’t refusing to cut deals with criminals, and allowing them to plead to lesser charges with short sentences or even parole.
No, it isn’t attempting to change the “thug life” subculture that glorifies and supports violent crime.
So, what does this woman think will help stem the violence?
Her “brilliant” idea?
Force manufacturers to put serial numbers on every round of ammunition.
No, I’m not kidding.
An Illinois state lawmaker plans to propose a bill that would require serial numbers be stamped on all ammunition sold in Illinois.
State Rep. Sonya Harper, D-Chicago, believes that serial numbers would help track bullets and help police identify those who are illegally distributing ammunition.
“We’re not trying to get rid of responsible gun owners guns, we just want to know how the guns and the bullets are getting into the hands of our youth and causing senseless harm and murder,” Harper said.
Harper was joined on Tuesday by several state lawmakers, Chicago aldermen and others in support of the proposal.
