I just nought 4 boxes of ammo for my 6.5 AR and they required my Drivers License...not just looking at it to confirm I am who I am but took down my DL number!

I'm mad and just can't take it anymore! This is ridicules!

Cabelas in Allen...if this is just a Cabelas thing, they said its just been implemented, and not a government thing they definitely will lose my business! If it's a government thing then I want to find out how this was implemented because I've never heard of it before...

Was it 6.5 Grendel ammo? If so, it must be a Cabela's thing.

I have to show my ID to buy spray-paint and beer, to vote and to get on a plane. I never understood the push-back on showing it for ammo and frankly I think you should need to show your ID to buy ammo..... There is no big bad government movement to create a database of all the ammo you buy so don't tinfoil hat me either.


let the hate begin....

to add to this - it's nothing more than being about liability.... no different than any of you wanting to see my CHL or DL if you sell me a gun.

Cabelas, or whoever, is smart to do this in the unfortunate event someone buys a case of ammo and shoots up the local mall, school, etc. Somewhere a lawyer said "you know what, we better make sure we are not selling this to a 13 year old kid and we follow all the laws because in Texas "for rifle or shotgun ammo you only have to be 18 but in order to buy handgun ammo you have to be 21......"

it's all about CYA and nothing more.

Showing is one...recording Dl is another.

You know this to be factual because of...what?? I'd argue that there are plenty of statists in the federal government who would LOVE to do this. How many anti-gun moves have we seen out of the current administration in the past six years? And how can we be so sure we know about everything?

Tinfoil hat yourself.

The problem is not in showing the DL, I've got no problem with that, the problem is the government documenting the purchase!

the government isn't documenting it, cabelas is.... this is not a national practice, just one store (and maybe chain, we have no idea).

what is more plausable - a store protecting themselves from liability or a ammo registry?

Chad, for example, is under no law, mandate or regulatory requirement to record and submit his sales on an individual basis, neither is any big box store.
