Ammunition Sales Restrictions Moving Forward in California

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the Assembly Committee on Appropriations Today!

Yesterday, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety considered two bills of great concern to California’s law-abiding gun owners. 

Assembly Bill 962 was passed and now heads to the Assembly Committee on Appropriations where it awaits a hearing.  Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 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. 

Assembly Bill 357, sponsored by Assembly Member Steve Knight (R-36), was defeated.  This bill would have created a “shall issue” concealed handgun permit system in California.  Under current law, an applicant must show cause as to why they should be issued a permit to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense.  AB357 would have removed that stipulation and required sheriffs to issue the license if all other mandated criteria were satisfied.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB962.
