California: Help Stop the Attack on Ammunition Sales!

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

Please Make Your Voice Heard Today!

Yesterday, Tuesday, April 8, Assembly Bill 2062 was passed by the Assembly Public Safety Committee.  Assembly Member Greg Aghazarian (R-26) objected, noting that AB2062 violates Joint Rule 54 (c) which prohibits a legislator from authoring a bill that is substantially the same as a bill that he or she previously authored in the same two-year session. Assembly Member Aghazarian moved to refer AB2062 to the Assembly Rules Committee for a formal determination of its fate. 

Sponsored by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB2062 would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition.  Applicants for a “permit-to-purchase” would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit. 

Under AB2062, it would be unlawful 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 vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyer’s name, driver’s license, the quantity, caliber and type of ammunition purchased, and right thumbprint, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice.  Vendors would be required to contact the purchase permit database, to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale.  All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax.  Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.  Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Rules Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support Assembly Member Aghazarian’s motion to refer AB2062 because it violates Joint Rule 54 (c).  Also, please continue contacting your State Assembly Member and respectfully urge them to oppose this onerous attack on our rights.  Please click here to find contact information for your State Assembly Member.

Also, please thank Assembly Member Aghazarian for standing-up for the Second Amendment by attempting to have AB2062 referred because it violates the Legislature’s rules.  He can be reached by phone at (916) 319-2026 or visit http://legplcms01.lc.ca.gov/PublicLCMS/ContactPopup.aspx?district=AD26 to send email.
