California: Ammo Registration Ordinance Passes in Carson!
Friday, July 24, 2009
On July 21, the City of Carson passed an ordinance that requires the registration of all ammunition sales. The ordinance also requires all ammunition vendors to obtain a license from the City, and will additionally require that all ammunition sales transactions to be conducted via a face-to-face transaction, effectively banning mail order and Internet purchases of ammunition. The ordinance is now waiting on the desk of Mayor Jim Dear for his consideration. The ordinance does not require his signature to become law, and as such it will go into effect August 20, 2009.
