California: Ammunition Dealer Regulations Approved

The Office of Administrative Law (OAL) has approved the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) proposed ammunition vendor regulations after failing to meet the statutorily mandated deadline of July 1, 2017 and the effective date of January 1, 2018. 

As previously reported,  recent changes to California law require ammunition vendors, businesses that sell ammunition but who are not licensed to sell firearms, to be in possession of a valid ammunition vendor license by January 1, 2018 in order to continue selling ammunition in California. 

The NRA is currently preparing a lawsuit to challenge the ammunition restrictions to compliment the already pending challenges against the “gunmagedon” package of gun control bills. Click here for more information on NRA’s legal efforts in California.
