    Durham considers backing effort to restrict "bullet" sales

    Durham considers backing effort to restrict bullet sales

    Durham, N.C. — The City Council on Monday was to debate putting its support by an effort to require background checks on people trying to buy bullets.

    Such a restriction would require a change in state law, but some advocates said support from Durham could create the needed momentum to push a bill through the General Assembly.

    "We don't sell guns to criminals, so why are we letting them buy the bullets?" said Rev. Melvin Whitley, a community activist who has fought against gangs and crime in Durham for years.

    Whitley emphasized his point Monday by going to an intersection where a 14-year-old was hit by a bullet.

    "If you've never been robbed and you've never had somebody stick a gun in your face (or) you've never had a gun to go off near you, you probably won't understand this issue," he said.

    If I remember correctly, I saw an article in the paper a couple days ago that said it's not going to make it to the house.
