Ammo Control Rocketing in This State

It is January 1, 2018, which means law-abiding Californians can no longer buy ammunition out-of-state or possess an unregistered AR-15 with a bullet button accessory.


On December 13, 2017, Breitbart News reported that California’s war on guns was about to expand to a war on ammunition, and January 1 marks the day that the war on ammunition begins.

Currently, law-abiding Californians must buy their ammunition from a licensed in-state ammunition dealer. This means that Californians who buy ammunition online must have that ammo shipped to a licensed in-state dealer and pay that dealer a fee when picking up the ammo.

These controls immediately lessen the supply of ammunition, thereby driving up the price for those who demand it. Also, these controls set the stage for phase two of ammunition control, which will consist of requiring a point-of-sale background check for ammunition purchases starting January 1, 2019. The point-of-sale background check will also carry a processing fee, which will drive the price of ammunition even higher.

These controls are in addition to the requirement that law-abiding Californians obtain a firearm safety certificate from the state before buying a firearm, endure a ten-day waiting period for gun purchases, pass a universal background check, register all firearms with the state, and live under the shadow of gun confiscation laws. There is an “assault weapons” ban, a ban on campus carry, and a new law against K-12 teachers being armed to shoot back if under attack at school.

California also has a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry, which allows bureaucrats within the issuing system to strictly control the number of permits given to law-abiding citizens. This single gun control has resulted in limiting the number of permits issued in Los Angeles County to 197; Los Angles County has a population of 10.2 million, yet only 197 concealed carry permits have been issued to the law-abiding citizens residing there.

The “good cause” requirement affords onlookers a great opportunity to see how gun control empowers criminals by keeping law-abiding citizens disarmed.

    Just a bit over the “INFRINGEMENT” part that the loser libs don’t understand. Likely a reading comprehension problem for these enlightened intellectual democrats.
    Illegal laws do dot apply, jerry moonbeam. Let’s see this go to the Supreme Court.

      So far, the Supreme Court hasn’t been inclined to hear any case since McDonald v. Chicago. And as far as the State is concerned, as long as you can own guns and ammo–just not those guns, at least as long as you keep them away from children or share them with friends–you are not infringed. It’s just more expensive, that’s all! And besides, didn’t you know that there is no RIGHT to carry a concealed firearm? The Ninth Circuit said so! (And the Supreme Court declined review.) And hey, although it is illegal to bear arms in any city or town, there are MILLIONS of acres out there where you can! What are you complaining about!

        They are making those millions of acres off limits as well.

          Not true. The bill that was passed allows the ban of open carry in unincorporated areas within a county closed to the discharge of firearms (because they abut populated areas). As things now stand, there is only one such area in the entire state.

            Who cares! There shouldn’t be any law’s infringing on our rights under the Constitution period! Gun’s , ammo or otherwise! That’s what we are pissed about! Hopefully Trump straitens California out soon? Also any other Libtard run States! Reality check! I don’t believe California is totally over run by Libtard’s! They are just in power positions. Like fixing voting and elections! They are not the majority.

            Check the California registered voter rolls. They say that Democrats (most of whom are urban dwellers) outnumber Republicans significantly. Of the 18.2 million registered voters, 7,932,373 (43.9 percent) were registered Democrats, and 5,225,675 (28.9 percent) were Republicans. Both chambers of the California legislature have been dominated by the Democratic Party since 1959 except in 1969 to 1971 when the Republican Party held both chambers (i.e., the early Reagan years) and from 1994 to 1996, when Republicans briefly held a majority in the Assembly.

            Tons of voter fraud at high levels of government in California. I know for a fact. I will be cooperating with President Trump with my information when he get’s around to the investigation which I’m sure he eventually will.

        in·fringe·ment
        inˈfrinjmənt/
        noun
        noun: infringement; plural noun: infringements
        1.
        the action of breaking the terms of a law, agreement, etc.; violation.”copyright infringement”
        2.
        the action of limiting or undermining something.”the infringement of the right to privacy”
        I thing the key words here are limiting or undermining.
        A google search of the definition of infringement brought this up first, but a lib still can’t understand the meaning, I’m sure.
        And the Ninth District Court???? Oh, give me a friggin’ break, puhleez.

          Blame Justice Scalia who, in Heller v. D.C., stated that “the right is not unlimited,” and that certain laws restricting the right, for example carry in courthouses and government buildings, the ban on felons, and the restrictions on the mentally ill, are “presumptively valid.” The liberal courts, including the Ninth, have run with that ball as far as they can, always concluding that the laws being imposed, even when they are imposed on the law abiding, are “reasonable restrictions” on the right.

    As long as the sheeple in Nazifornia act like sheeple and keep allowing other human being to control their lives telling them everything they can and can’t do and can and can’t have, this will continue and the only people to blame are yourselves.
    What you sheeple need to realize is these morons sitting behind some desk pretending to play god are nothing more than humans that bleed just like the rest of us, they are not super humans they are not untouchable or invincible and the only power they have is by the sheeple abiding and obeying. Once you stand up and tell them to take their pretend power happy control freak B.S and shove it up their anuses they will no longer have the power they thought they had.
    It’s time for you coward sheeple to wake the F up and start taking your FREEDOM AND RIGHTS BACK, Their lapdog pigs are not your friend they are the enemy and once you all stand up and start treating them as such then and only then will things change.

      We are not sheeple. We are outvoted. The Legislature is completely controlled by Democrats, who are one vote shy of a supermajority in one house, and have a supermajority in the other. And that supermajority hates us. The Assembly Public Safety Committee routinely insults any and all who speak against new gun control laws, and stupid bills hit the floor with no chance of being stopped. There are 18 million registered voters in this state, 2/3s of whom are democrats. The Democratic Party has the power and it knows it. Only the Courts can stop them, and unfortunately, the Ninth Circuit is full of liberal judges who hate guns, and the Supreme Court refuses to act. What exactly are we supposed to do about that, when half of our number are Fudds who do not own ARs and do not feel that the new ammo laws will cause any great imposition upon them?

          Just like all the citizens who hated what’s going on in California? they fled California. They didn’t stay and fight? Which weakend any chance of beating them down anyway! I know tons of fool’s who cut and ran. Before the crap hit the fan! So they say! Trumpster needs to clean the deep swamp in California too! I hope his rainbow colored hose can reach California? It seem to me that Demonrat Party is corrupted bunch of criminals. Hopefully indictments will be handed out to those in our California legislative branch and all the way down to our mayor’s in our country. Like where nut case Waters resides in Southern California! That damn James Brown want to be! Forget prison or jail? It’s rubber room time for that thing!

      Easy for you to sit in your armchair and berate us. Instead of running us down why don’t you do like those who assembled at the Alamo? They traveled far to give aid to Texans and they gave the last full measure of their devotion. You better pay attention to how the progressive disease has spread.

      You make a blanket excuse. It’s the illegal voting and elections period! Just like what happened to the rest of the country during Trump’s Presidential election! Where do you think they had practice from the beginning? It’s like the disaster’s that had happened during the hurricanes. Martial Law came in to confiscate weapon’s not yo help anyone! It was an experiment. To see if they could get away with it! It’s obvious that they did! Figure it out? They even had the Black Lives Matter show up at the polling places to intimidate voter’s to vote the way they tell them. Get a clue? I’m wondering if they are going to try that crap again for our next voting and elections? How are we going to stop them?

      we didn’t allow it to happen. We have fought it from the start. Unfortunately, through one means or another, they slipped in some ringers who betrayed their oaths of office. We’d love to string ’em up to teach ’em a lesson about the Constitution and rights, but we lack the support from USDOJ, SCOTUS, and, so far, POTUS.

      California is a testing ground by the powers-that-be. In a land where things are relatively easy and the People have it relatively good they know if they can pull off their krap here they can do it anywhere.
      Even in our Revolutionary war against England only ten percent of the People really gave a damn.

    The cost of ammunition will not rise do to any lack of supply; if it rises it will be due to a lack of competition. Right now, there are unanswered questions about the so-called background check requirement. Proposition 63 required the purchase of a license (with background check) for $50, good for five years, but a later enacted law, signed by the governor, only requires an automated check against a California only computerized database of prohibited persons at a cost not to exceed $1.

    What will really boost the cost are the new vendor reporting requirements. Right now, vendors are required to record your name, address,etc., the calibers and amount of ammunition sold, and to fax that record weekly to the California Department of Justice. Later, there will be a computerized system where this information will be entered, which of course will be time consuming for the vendors, who will likely raise prices to account for additional labor costs.

    Put serial numbers on every bullet and matching numbers on every cartridge. Outlaw reloading, Sell only guns that can can only be fired by owner, with built in drug and alcohol tester. Oh yeah, a GPS unit in stock to transmit current location and permit authorities to lock firing mechanism. Plus bullet proof vests for teachers and students. What did I forget?

      How about every gun takes a photo of the shooter on every shot which is instantly sent to the California attorney generals office for review which the shooter then pays for.

    The worst part is that the legislature passed laws that exempted all Senators and Representatives from having to abide by those same laws. They can own all the “illegal” firearms they want and they can purchase ammunition via the mail. They do not have to follow the laws they pass. Ain’t that a kick in the head?
    I’m a native Californian, but I now live in Kalifornia. The communist state of the West Coast.
    If I could afford it, I would move out of Kalifornia.

      This is one of the biggest things I agree with you on. These legislator’s don’t have to abide by the same rules for us sub humans! Isn’t that how they basically treat civilian population? We are beneath them. They ate better than the average Joe Blow. So they don’t have to be bound by the same rules they make for us. It’s just total crap! Like Obomination medical plan. Not one of them were under Obomination’s health care plan. Not one! There needs to be a petition signed to make these fool’s accountable for making law’s. That they have to live and comply with the law’s they make for us. Especially. When these fool’s are out of touch with the average Joe Blow! Here’s an example. John Kerry trying to run for President? He thought the average Joe Blow wage earner made $250,000-$300,00 a year. Then there was an idiot awhile back who was running for President too! Wilson. He thought if you made $27, 000 a year? You made too much money! Just think how many incompetent fool’s are out there making frivolous law’s to govern us Joe Blows? It’s unreal!
