Posted on 06/16/2014 5:15:36 AM PDT by bestintxas
California lawmakers are considering the creation of an ammunition registry that will require ammunition purchasers to go through a background check--including fingerprinting--and obtain an "ammunition purchaser permit" before getting ammo.
The registry is contained in Senate Bill 53, which passed in the California Assembly Public Safety Committee 5-2 on June 12.
According to the NRA-ILA: "If passed and enacted into law, SB 53 would require the collection and reporting of personal consumer information and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases throughout the state. It would also ban online and mail-order sales of all ammunition, including hunting and collectible ammunition."
Additionally, SB 53 would require ammunition purchasers to "register with the Department of Justice" and "obtain a costly ammunition purchaser permit that must be renewed every two years."

Can we find someone in the law that permits the govt to do what CA is doing?
CA pols don’t know and don’t care the definition of infringement.
It’ll pass. Its just a matter of time.
Registration = confiscation.
Drive to AZ or NV. He’ll, I might set up an ammo and hot dog stand at the border.
Ammunition falls under the general category of ‘Arms’.
Lawsuit challenge should be automatic.
Guess I'd better hit Academy on the way home and get ahead of the rush.
As CA goes, so goes the nation...
The Nazis are on a roll in Barry’s Amerika.
Already the law in CT.
An ammunition certificate can ONLY be obtained at one building in the entire state, and for a cost. The law makers knew the “wrong colored people” most likely were poor enough to not have the money nor the transportation to get this certificate.
Their daughter cotillion is now safer from “those people”, so they think.
Gun Talk List Ping...
Jerry Brown vetoed a similar bill last year. Of course, he signed several other gun control bills at the same time, but at least he vetoed the ammo ban bill.
This will sail through the legislature once again - can only hope for another veto.
The state will open another black market they have a RED STAR on the flag for a reason.
Lots of ammo can only be purchased online. Good luck finding ammo for older rifles in CA.
In 1982, voters in Cali rejected Prop 15 to ban the sale of handguns in that state.
It seems to me that this should mean that magazines and ammo are also safe from legislation, but then, since that day the politicians have been trying to get around the will of the voters by imposing small bits of legislation to chip away at gun ownership.
They don’t need no stinking law! They are the law and don’t you forget it, peasant!
This country has gone loony.
Finger print and register people for knives?
Pure insanity and fruitless.
Connecticut is a small state and one can easily drive across the border to obtain ammunition, not that I am advocating it.
Jeez, you know that “Collectible Ammunition” is the worst kind ;)
Actually, there's already similar near CA/NV involving fireworks this time of year. Being as almost all of Kalifornia outlaws 'em.
Riverside and San Bernardino county "undercovers" have been known to lurk and do stops once back in CA.
