California is on the verge of doing it. Restricting access to ammunition since state and local banners keep losing in the courts system.
So now we are at Dateline Sacramento .... The State Assembly (sort of a House of Representatives) has passed Assembly Bill 962, by a vote of 42-31. AB 962 now heads to the state Senate, where it has been assigned to the Senate Public Safety Committee. The bill would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month.
Sponsored by Assemblyman Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles), the bill, if passed into law, would require ammunition retailers to be licensed, and dealers would be required to store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers.
Further, the bill would also require ammunition purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Additionally, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.
Bottom line: The bill would essentially criminalize the transfer of one box of ammunition to even a family member or friend, unless you are registered as a "handgun ammunition vendor" in the Department of Justice's database.
This from a man who thinks its okay to trample on access to self defense tools by law-abiding citizens, but feels it necessary to apologize for past discrimination against Chinese in California. Who will apologize to current citizens for this blatant restriction? Making lawful Californians jump through hoops to make political points?
Assemblyman de Leon is one of a handful of useful idiots. Tools of the control freaks.
