Thanks to the efforts of NRA members, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) vetoed anti-gun measure AB 996 this past Friday. Assembly Bill 996, authored by Assemblymember Ridley-Thomas (D - Los Angeles), would have required all retailers to display and sell ammunition in a manner that is only accessible by an employee, not the purchaser. Any violation of the measure would have resulted in a misdemeanor.
