So you can’t buy a standard milk carton of 550 .22LR rounds without getting the police involved? They’re going to love that.
These fools have no idea how any of this is going to make anyone safer, they’re just throwing anything they can think of that is anti-2A to see if it will stick.
No hollow point ammo? Does that include the DHS and National Weather Service?
San Francisco: Home of if it feels good, do it.
This ordinance will only have one impact on the city of San Francisco, loss of business (and any related taxes).
The San Francisco bay area is know for its long commute. You think there is anyone that can not travel a few miles outside of the cities control and still buy the ammunition they want?
Even if a person does not have a car, BART will take them to the suburbs.
A silly law, by a silly person in a silly city.
One more reason to get out of CA. I’m absolutely 100% sure that this will do nothing to affect gang wars, drug wars, drive by shootings, domestic murders, etc.
BTW, this means if I buy nine boxes of .22LR (50 rds each), the cops don’t get called; but if I buy ONE box (525 rds.), the cops do get called. Makes perfect sense, if yor’re a dumba$$ politician with the IQ of a grape.
That is how they are going to get around 2nd amendment. You can own all the guns you want but getting ammo will be illegal. Gotta give liberals credit for coming up with something. Conservatives have been against abortion for years and can’t seem to come up a way to circumvent the situation to our liking. UGH! Come on conservatives, start playing their game.
time to prepare for 2014. no matter we have to turn out the vote.
This will make Barney Frank (in another thread) happy: when hollow-point bullets are outlawed, only the government will have hollow-point bullets.
As a former denizen of the area (left about 2 years ago), I remember that SF drove the last gun shop out of town with the passage of proposition H which banned all handguns (now overturned) in the city. As a result, that shop moved to Pacifica and is now called Pacific Arms. I don’t think there is any commercial entity to effect with this decree. Maybe if you buy off the internet you’ll need a permission slip from the police, but otherwise it is business as normal.
I have a few boxes of Federal .22LR ammo that was purchased in 1963. I take out a couple of dozen rounds each year or so and shoot them. Never had a misfire. They were left over from my birthday present of 10,000rounds that year. Best birthday present ever. I shot all but about a brick before I went away to college. I found them about 20 years later, still stored in a Government steel ammo box on a shelf in the basement of my parents home. Properly stored, any ammo will last longer than you will.
BTW, you can store 5,000 rounds of .22LR ammo in a standard .50cal ammo box. 8 bricks stored vertically. Then break down two of the bricks and place the individual boxes between the top of the bricks and the bottom of the lid. Works perfect.
I bought another 10,000rounds when a local store closed out nearly 20 years ago. Filled two .50cal ammo boxes. My father also bought 15,000rounds at the same time. A few years later I inherited almost all of the ones my father bought. I am down to one and one half .50cal ammo boxes of .22LR now. Getting close to fill up time again — but, after this buying frenzy is over.
