Its not a issue here you are only allowed 1000 rds for each firearm. I find 1000 sufficient.

How do they know how much you have?

I'm very worried about the current chatter I hear in the news around limiting online purchases to no more than 500 per month.

The process that is required for the government to know (just like the N. Ireland chap's story) is so tyrannical that my head feels like exploding.

I heard it said just yesterday that tyranny isn't found in what a government does or has done, but in what it feels it has the authority to do in the future.

They can do random checks. Its a condition on your firearms certificate if you caught with to many you could lose your license.
When you buy ammo the amount is recorded on your certificate.

How often do they do these random checks? Personally I don't keep all of my eggs in one basket, if you catch my drift. What they would see is only what I want them to see. What would prevent you from going to the range and claiming you fired off all 1000 that are on the books and buying some more? Do they monitor you at the range? What about reloading components? (or can you reload your own ammo there?)

Geeze, and I thought California was bad.

'Japan prohibits handgun possession by citizens. Shotguns and rifles for hunting or sports may be possessed upon completion of a licensing procedure that requires a police background check, successful completion of a safety course, passing of shooting, written, and psychological tests, and police verification of secure storage, prior to approval being granted by the police to purchase a firearm. Fully automatic weapons are restricted to military and police. Gun owners must take a class once a year and pass a written test. Police check on the owner once every three months on an unannounced visit. They inspect the gun locker, proper ammunition storage, and the firearm.' From Wiki

What they DON'T mention here is that they, 'hunters' at least, are only allowed to have I think it is 20 rounds of ammunition and must account for/turn in every shell casing when they want to replenish it.

Democrats like leader Schumer would love this...
