AB2714, sponsored by Assembly Member Alberto Torrico (D-20), is currently on the Senate floor. This legislation would require that no ammunition (or reloaded ammunition) may be sold in a retail transaction unless the purchaser personally presents evidence of his or her identity and age, as specified, to the seller of the ammunition. Additionally, it would severly underming, California's state preemption law.
Also, AB352, sponsored by Assembly Member Paul Koretz (D-42), would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be microstamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing. Handguns that do not include their identifying information would be defined as “unsafe,” and their manufacture, sale, and transfer would be a crime. AB352 passed in the Senate by two votes and now moves before the Assembly for a final vote.
