Norway shooter: Ammo was from U.S. legally


All on the up and up no less. Now we're exporting our stupidity. Sigh. From Ben's tweet. Much more at the link.

The Norwegian madman who killed dozens at a kids summer camp claims he legally bought high-capacity ammunition clips by mail from the United States, prompting Capitol Hill’s leading gun control advocate to say on Thursday that America should be ashamed such purchases aren’t against the law.

Anders Behring Breivik wrote in a 1,500-page manifesto that he bought 10 30-round ammunition clips for his .223 caliber rifle from an unnamed small U.S. supplier, which then in turn acquired the clips from other suppliers. Norway forbids the sale of magazine clips for hunting rifles that hold more than three bullets, according to Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.
