On Monday, August 23, the Senate Public Safety Committee passed the newly-amended version of Assembly Bill 2358 by a 4-2 vote. AB2358 now returns to the floor of the Senate for consideration.
AB2358 was recently amended to include common rifle ammunition like .223 and 7.62 x 39. This anti-gun legislation is intended 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
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.
