Two anti-gun bills taking aim at our Second Amendment freedoms were proposed in the California Legislature earlier this week.
Assembly Bill 962, 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 submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.
Senate Bill 585, authored by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Cow Palace. In short, this bill is a stepping-stone to ban gun shows in the Golden State.
These bills have yet to be assigned to committees. Please continue checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates.
