Bill to Repeal Ammunition Registration to be Heard Next Week in California!

Friday, March 19, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the Assembly Committee on Public Safety!

On Tuesday, March 23, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety will consider Assembly Bill 1663.

If passed, AB1663 would repeal the onerous ammunition sales registration requirements put in place by Assembly Bill 962.  As you will recall, AB962
requires individuals purchasing ammunition be fingerprinted and registered at the time of sale and outlaws mail order ammunition purchases. AB962 also requires dealers to maintain these records indefinitely and make them available for inspection by the California Department of Justice. As an additional burden, ammunition retailers are also required to store ammunition away from purchasers. AB962 failed to garner support from Attorney General Brown, and any law enforcement organization. In fact, 15 sheriffs wrote letters of opposition to this legislation.

All of California's firearms owners, dealers, shooters, hunters, collectors, clubs/organizations, and ammunition vendors, should join in this effort to repeal AB962.  This will not be an easy fight, but it is possible to win if we all stick together and act in an organized manner. 

Please contact the members of the Assembly Committee on Public Safety TODAY and respectfully urge them to support AB1663.  Contact information can be found below.
