Ammo Sales Bill (AB2358) Sent Back to Senate Public Safety Committee in California

Friday, August 20, 2010

 Please Contact the Senate Public Safety Committee Today!

Assembly Bill 2358 was recently amended to include common rifle ammunition like .223 and 7.62 x 39.  The bill has been directed back to the Senate Public Safety Committee for approval of this alteration where it will be considered on Monday, August 23.

As we reported, AB2358 is anti-gun legislation meant to “clean-up” and address problems encountered with the passage of AB962 in 2009.  Make no mistake about it; this bill does nothing to improve AB962 for California’s gun owners.  In fact, it makes things far worse.

AB2358 would force licensed state ammunition retailers to obtain a special local license to operate in municipalities.  These retailers would also be required to notify local law enforcement before conducting business within their jurisdiction. 

Moreover, this bill mandates that ammunition retailers submit sales records to local law enforcement agencies and allows them to maintain those records indefinitely.  It does not require the same privacy and destruction requirements mandated for state ammunition vendors.

Passage of AB2358 would make it difficult for ammunition retailers to sell ammunition at sporting events and gun shows.  It would also leave law abiding Californian gun owners vulnerable to identity theft and political persecution by local, anti-gun politicians.

Please contact the members of the Senate Public Safety Committee IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB2358.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
