Calif. bill would regulate ammunition sales
The Fresno Bee ^ | Jan. 07, 2013 | TERRY COLLINS

OAKLAND, Calif. -- A California assemblywoman introduced a bill on Monday that aims to regulate ammunition sales.

The measure, AB48, would establish restrictions similar to those covering gun sales, including requiring sellers to be licensed and buyers to have and show valid identification.

"When we have so many safeguards in place around the purchase of guns, why is it so much easier to buy bullets, the things that make guns deadly?" Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner asked as she unveiled the measure during a news conference outside her office in Oakland.

"Today, it is easier in California to buy bullets than it is to buy alcohol, cigarettes or Sudafed cold medicine. We've had enough," she said...

If that law passes than Reno and Vegas will be getting more than just casino business from California.

It’s as good as passed. We handed the State Legislature completely over to the democrats last Nov. Now we gotta pay the price.

Little Nancy thinks bullets are “the things that make guns deadly”, when in reality it’s evil people. Try controlling them first, beeatch.

California-feh!

A state of mindless liberal homos who live and vote beyond their means expecting real Americans to obey not Sacramento but their real power assholes in Hollywood.

If not for the San Andreas Fault their would be no hope there.

I keep telling people California is the land where all political insanity in the US begins. So nice of them to keep proving me right.

We should call them the ‘knee jerk’ party. I say limit ALL legislatures to two, two-week sessions per year.. These tyrants think it’s their job to pass law after law.. IT’S OUT OF CONTROL!!!

Really? I have never been asked for ID to buy Sudafed or any other cold medicine. Even when I was 16, I was never asked for ID to purchase cigarettes (that has apparently changed since I was 16). And, I can't tell you the last time someone asked me for ID when I purchased alcohol. However, buying ammunition in California has been very difficult. There are more days that the ammo I need is not in stock than there are days in which the ammo is in stock.

“Really? I have never been asked for ID to buy Sudafed”

Have you bought Sudafed lately? You have to present a picture ID, sign a form and then they go get it. You are limited to one purchase in a 30 day period elso you go an a “list”. Courtesy the US Patriot Act.

Where? I loaded up yesterday on .308. I actually gave up 3 boxes because the fellow behind me was there for the same reason. And he looked sad.

Oh, I’m in KahLeeFawNeeYuh....

LOL...I recognized him from the local range. I pushed the 3 boxes aside and told the clerk to let the fella behind me buy em.

Great day. I picked up 3 CRKT Crawford Krenshaw as well.

No ID for anything.

I panicked Saturday when all the websites were sold out of decent .22LR so I called Bass Pro, and the local sporting goods store. Still none. I finally found some at a local gun shop but he would only sell me one brick of the 11 he had left so others could buy some. I agreed with his reasons. We are all better off having MORE compatriots armed than hoarding a lot of ammo for ourselves. You were wise to share.

That was nice. I was at Walmart weeks ago and saw four remaining boxes of .22LR. One guy took one, the lady who was next grabbed three. The clerk asked what I wanted, and I said one of those last boxes of .22. The lady said she supposed she “could” give me one, but at the register she charged all three and left without turning around. Not so nice.

LOL, good man!

To the rest of your post, B & B on Oxnard St. in No. Hollywood.

.44 mag ammo required I.D and and a finger (thumb) print, maybe it was different back then for hand gun ammo, I don't know.

This article claims 2,000 firearm deaths, NBC (duh) changed it to 2,800. My question is, how many were law enforcement or self defense (home protection)related?

The thing that makes guns deadly is the human.

They could license homicidal thoughts... Sell licenses for homicidal thoughts for 100$ per. Anyone who commits homicide without a homicidal thought license has 20 years added to their sentence. Of course the homicide license has to have the name and other identifying information of the projected victim, and would not be transferable.

Having such a license would also be evidence of presumed homicidal premeditation.

The criminals would line up to pay their tax right? Anyone? Bueller?”

It will also soon be easier to vote and collect benefits than buying ammo. I get all mine out of state anyway already. This must be how the Romans felt before the collapse.

There is nothing left for the libs to legislate in Sacramento,they can’t touch Proposition 13 or water rights.They can’t make laws that are too radical without getting those stricken down by a judge.They will do nothing as California continues to sink into an economic pit.

Yes, but the gun owners of CA revolted and had that law repealed, of course back then we had some republicans in the state senate and house. We also put the hit on the bill they tried to pass recently(last year)that would have banned internet sales of ammo in CA.

They’ll never crack down on evil people because they’re useful pawns in their plan to regulate every aspect of life. Homicidal maniacs are useful for regulating guns.

In a perfect world, the media wouldn’t be allowed to turn shootings into a national spectacle, thus robbing the maniacs of much of their incentive to commit atrocities.

I managed to be at Walmart one day during the Christmas break where they had some ammo I could use. Most of the time their shelves are pretty bare.

We just tell them no anyway - they never look - it would be too much work for them.
