Bill to Restrict Ammunition Moves Ahead

The Senate Public Safety Committee passed Assembly Bill 962. The bill now moves to the Senate Appropriations Committee for consideration. No hearing date has been scheduled.

AB962, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a “handgun ammunition vendor” in the Department of Justice’s database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be kept in dealers’ records and subject to inspection by the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

Get some while you can.

Also note, that the American Revolution was sparked by the English attempting to confiscate weapons and ammunition at Concord and Lexington. All of the other causes exist today. Taxes, duties, limitations on free speech and assembly, jail without trial, devaluation of currency. One can make the argument for many parallels.

The question is, could a bunch of fat, lazy Americans lulled to sleep by a karaoke contest and Jay Leno really ever do anything about it?
