    California Assembly to Consider Severe
    Restrictions on Ammunition Sales!
    Stand Up and Make Your Voice Heard Today!


    Next Wednesday, March 25, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will consider legislation that would require gun owners to obtain a permit-to-purchase before buying handgun ammunition.

    Introduced by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), Assembly Bill 2062 puts ammunition sales in the crosshairs. AB2062 would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition. Applicants for a permit-to-purchase would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit.



    Under AB2062, it would be unlawful to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a handgun ammunition vendor in the Department of Justices database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyers name, drivers license, the quantity, caliber and type of ammunition purchased, and right thumbprint, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice or the number of his handgun ammunition purchase permit. Vendors would be required to contact the purchase permit database, to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale. All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

    Please contact the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and your State Assembly Member TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this onerous attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.

    No no no its to stop the gang members...considering that California has 3 cities in the I think the top 10 of the top 15 cities with the highest crime.

    We need all shooters to call the posted numbers and even the governors office since he will have to sign it...honestly I am not sure how much good its going to do us but I do not plan on losing without fighting. So lets get on those phones and emails.

    Its more then just hand gun ammo they are going after here folks... its all metalic ammo... Since every almost every chambering has a hand gun made for that chambering... it could( and will be) be "streched" at some point in the future, To all caliburs chambered in hand guns.

    This same legislator proposed the same legislation last year and it went nowhere.

    After Heller is decided in the end of June and teh SCOUTS says that the 2A is an "Individual Right", "that can be reasonably restricted."

    I don't think that ammo cards and registration will be considered "reasonable restrictions", and It probably violates interstate commerce.

    I'll write, I'll call, It will again get shot down and I'd bet a box of .45 he proposes it again next year.

    I know its the same bill and same guy, but we cannot let down our guard.

    By the way it was the NRA that sent this to me in an email alert.

    DeLeon sponsored similar legislation last year that would have made displaying and handling ammunition in gun and sporting goods shops illegal except by registered personnel. The idea was to classify ammo as dangerous explosives.

    Here's a copy of the letter that I wrote to DeLeon on that occasion:

    I just checked and found out that DeLeon won with 82% of the vote. He's probably sponsoring these bills because he's immune to attempts to unseat him. I'm still going to contribute to the Republican opposition.

    P.S. With .45 ammo in gun stores around my area going for $21/bx of 50; .40 at $16-18; and 9mm at $11-14 this legislation may be un-necessary. I just saw Federal .308 Gold Medal Match going for $30 per bx. of 20 = $1.50/cartridge!! For .308!

    See? Write them a letter saying you'll fight to oppose their re-election and they ignore you knowing they will be back in office anyway. Let this state sink and move to the real U.S.

    Folks, please do not forget the Onetouch system at www.calnra.com. That way, one email goes to all the correct people--and there are advantages to having 1 email going to the entire committee or house:evil:
