"Our automated ammo dispensers are accessible 24/7, ensuring that you can buy ammunition on your own schedule, free from the constraints of store hours and long lines," American Rounds says on its website.

The company says that their vending machines have "built-in AI technology, card scanning capability and facial recognition software."

The software can verify the buyer's identity and determine whether the machine matches the identification scanned, according to American Rounds."

What could possibly go wrong?

At least you know you can get to your car antenna.

Who knows if you'll be able to get to you gun.

The government knew this, notice cars don't have antennas anymore ...

Look at it this way... it'll be much easier loading your antenna if you can get the ammo from vending machines at WalMart!

If it is anything like other facial recognition AI then perhaps it denies sales to darker skinned people.

Many just order online their ammunition online from numerous companies and it's delivered to your door, less hassle IMO.

Now mass shooters in grocery stores don't need to worry about running out of bullets.

Thanks Republicans!

"You don't need no gun control, you know what you need? We need some bullet control. Men, we need to control the bullets, that's right. I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars ... five thousand dollars per bullet ... You know why? Cause if a bullet cost five thousand dollars there would be no more innocent bystanders.
Yeah! Every time somebody get shot we'd say, Damn, he must have done something ... ----, he's got fifty thousand dollars worth of bullets in his ass.'
And people would think before they killed somebody if a bullet cost five thousand dollars. Man I would blow your ------- head off ... if I could afford it.' I'm gonna get me another job, I'm going to start saving some money, and you're a dead man. You'd better hope I can't get no bullets on layaway.'
So even if you get shot by a stray bullet, you wouldn't have to go to no doctor to get it taken out. Whoever shot you would take their bullet back, like "I believe you got my property."

The car antenna myth has been debunked; the antenna will likely get you killed.

Check it out if you want to laugh your ass off, e.g., exerpt-

Although we instinctively realized this fact we remained determined to find the amount of time and the level of force required to remove the antenna. To create the additional time required the defender throws his wedding ring at the attackers face as a distraction and then aggressively attacks, shoving his attacker to create distance. He lunges to grab the antenna while the aggressor is temporarily stunned and stalling to give him some additional time. The defender forcefully grabs the antenna with 2 hands and frantically pulls it in 2 directions with no result, the antenna was just too flexible. The attacker could not stall any longer and attacked. During the last moments of the defenders life he attempts one last time to tear the antenna from its roots with such force it caused the antenna to assume an "S" shape. It was at this time the defender gets thrown to the ground and is brutally stabbed in the face multiple times.

Dumb idea. Reload your own before #14's idea comes true. I have enough reloading supplies to last for generations. Government proofing myself.

I buy decent rounds (I like Federal) once in a while so I always have newish brass. Generally, I don't like to go more than 4 reloads/casing.

Not a dearth of victims of far right shooters.

One of them slaughtered a whole crowd of people in las vegas after his mind was filled up with conspiracy theories and hate from right wing media.

"The issue of extremist-related mass killings is of growing concern and is the subject of a special section of this report. From the 1970s through the 2000s, domestic extremist-related mass killings were relatively uncommon. However, over the past 12 years, their number has greatly increased. Most of these mass killings were committed by right-wing extremists, but left-wing and domestic Islamist extremists were also responsible for incidents. The Center on Extremism has identified 62 extremist-connected mass killing incidents since 1970, with 46 of them being ideologically motivated. Disturbingly, more than half (26, or 57%) of the ideological mass killings have occurred within the past 12 years. Of particular concern in recent years are shootings inspired by white supremacist "
