Weiss Seeks Ways to ID Ammo Buyers

October 07, 2006|From Times Staff Reports

A Los Angeles councilman asked the LAPD and city attorney's office on Friday to study ways to identify those who purchase ammunition.

The request by Councilman Jack Weiss follows a Rand Corp. report, released Thursday, that found dozens of ex-felons and others legally prohibited from buying ammunition purchased more than 10,000 rounds of bullets and shotgun shells during a two-month study period in 2004.

The rounds, the report said, were purchased at 10 businesses in Los Angeles that sell ammo.
