California: Long Beach Crafting Ammo Registration Ordinance!

Thursday, October 11, 2007

The City of Long Beach is in the preliminary stages of crafting an ordinance requiring ammunition sales to be logged by all Federal Firearm Licensees (FFL’s) and electronically sent to law enforcement.  Under this possible ordinance, it is likely that purchasers will be forced to present identification and submit to fingerprinting simply to purchase a box of ammunition to hunt or go to the range.  It has been transferred to the Public Safety Advisory Committee and the Public Safety Committee.  Thus far the Public Safety Advisory Commission has withheld judgment on the issue at two consecutive meetings and the Public Safety Committee is waiting for input and recommendation from the Public Safety Advisory Committee.

The Federal law requiring ammunition purchasers to present I.D. was repealed by the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986 because it was found to be ineffective in reducing crime. 

Please contact Mayor Bob Foster and the Long Beach City Council today and respectfully urge them to oppose this unwarranted and unnecessary privacy invading, anti-gun measure.
