Oakley bans residential ammunition sales (California)

OAKLEY -- The city tweaked its rules this week to ban the sale of ammunition in residential neighborhoods.

Although Oakley City Council initially considered prohibiting home-based gunsmithing businesses as well, it discarded that idea.

The 3-2 vote doesn't change the city's existing prohibition on residential firearms sales.

Council members took up the matter after someone contacted City Hall wanting to open a home-based gun-related business.

Much of the discussion revolved around differences between federal and local laws pertaining to gun sales and service.

The permits that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives issues don't make a distinction between firearms dealers and those who work on guns. As a result, individuals who want to start a business servicing firearms also have the right to sell them as long as they comply with state and local laws, as well.

Oakley allows one of those activities in residential neighborhoods but not the other: Although gunsmiths may work out of their homes, the city adopted an urgency ordinance in June 2011 prohibiting startup businesses from selling guns in or near residential areas.

Council members toyed with the idea of trying to shore up that ordinance by asking ATF to place a restriction on the licenses it issues gunsmiths, limiting whatever firearms they sell to commercially zoned areas.

Asked to weigh in on the matter, police Chief Bani Kollo expressed doubt that agency would support such a prohibition...

I bailed Ca decades ago.

Believe it or not it used to be a decent place to be free.

Now the place is polluted with SMUG.

I know all won’t, but ammo makers should deny sales of ammo to the City of Oakland. The firearms manufacturers should have done it long ago, but now would be a good time for them too!

This is NOT Oakland, it is Oakley, a different city altogether.

Probably a human experiment setup by the Obama administration in a liberal envionment to see how the sheeple / people will react to being disarmed by having their ammo removed. Mayor probably got paid handsomely and O is hoping the concept will catch on like wildfire...

They need to make it illegal for the selling of illegal guns to criminals while they’re at it - no sense in coming so close and then not closing the deal...

I couldn’t cross the border into CA with the firearms I own. Have no intention of ever visiting the communist bankrupt state.
