California Democrats will push background checks for ammunition
washington post ^ | january 10, 2014 | reid wilson

Posted on 01/10/2014 5:27:25 PM PST by lowbridge

Following passage last year of some of the strongest gun-control laws in the nation in the wake of the school shooting in Newton, Conn., leading California Democrats will open a new front in the fight against gun violence this year with a proposal to conduct background checks on people who purchase ammunition.

State Senate Democrats will push to require a comprehensive background check on anyone seeking to purchase ammunition, and to require a one-year permit for ammunition purchases.

“Anyone can walk into any gun store, a bait and tackle store, and purchase all the ammunition they want to, no questions asked,” Sen. Kevin de Leon (D), the bill’s lead sponsor, said in an interview. “The ammunition is the fuel that feeds the violence. The gun itself, the hand gun or the long gun or the high-powered weapon is the delivery device. The gas, the fuel, is the ammunition, and no one knows who buys it.”

California is gone. The dems can have their way, any way they want it, with those unfortunate to live in a lovely place run by criminals.

Looking forward to visiting this year and traveling, armed with blades, blackjack at touchdown, while my ride upon arrival will furnish a snub nosed .38 special and 12 gauge pump shotgun. Fools can pass illegal edicts all they want.

Short of some sort of SCOTUS relief (and don’t expect it), CA residents will lose most of the rest of their few remaining 2A rights. With the dem majorities, I expect this to happen within a few more election cycles.

So, in order to exercise our Second Amendment rights, we have to get a procto exam from the FBI. Obviously unconstitutional, not that the frito banditos now running California care.

Time to stock up on internet ammo again before they ram this through.

I am living for the day I can leave a post here saying, “I used to live in California. sorry for all you left behind, but let it burn. I wouldn’t go back to that commie hell hole for a million dollars”.

Just 6-7 more years until retirement and I can flee Kalifornia for Virginia. Can’t come soon enough.

With DC corruption and Money, Virgina won't be much ahead of Kalifornia. That State is purple heading deep blue.

“Our work’s not done there,” Steinberg said. “We want to distinguish in this state guns that are legally owned for sport, for recreation and for self-defense and safety, versus guns and rifles that allow hundreds of bullets to be fired within seconds that can indiscriminately injure or kill people that have no use in the sport, recreation or self-defense categories.”

That’s a crazy liar, inventing new street guns to rant about...

Heck, who could afford the ammo at “hundreds of rounds in seconds”?

May want to rethink this option unless you already have property there. Virginia is rapidly becoming a deep blue state, and you see who those morons elected to be governor.

Hopefully someone will open a Gun Store at Stateline.

That way I won’t have to drive all the way into Vegas to stock up.

You had better rethink your decision to go to VA. In six or seven years, it will be just like California. For peers sake man, it touches DC, has a RAT governor and both Senators are RATs!! Just how is that going to be any different than CA?

HOLD ON FOR A COTTON-PICKIN SECOND.

You can still read articles about guns without a background check. You can still look at pictures of guns without a background check.

THERE'S STILL A LOOPHOLE!!!11!!1!1!!

You know, this makes perfect sense. We should let the government know where all the ammo is just in case they ever need to “borrow” it. /sarc

But in all seriousness, it makes sense to have background check for the “fuel” for deadly devices capable of mass murder. If they don’t have any fuel, they can’t be used for mass murder (except as a club). But before they start requiring background check for ammunition, which “fuels” one of the least dangerous items available for common use, I can think of a few more things for which they should require background checks. Water, for example, since swimming pools are 6 times more dangerous to children than firearms. Gasoline is another one; maybe they need to have a second card reader on gas pumps for swiping your driver’s license to make sure you have a car that uses the type of gasoline which you are purchasing and that you do not have a suspended license and... (if there isn’t a pool of sarcasm collecting in front of your computer monitor, I didn’t do it right)
