California: Ammunition Registration 

The internet was blowing up yesterday about California's attempt to waste tax payer time and money with an ammunition registration bill.  This bill is nothing new, but it got passed in the Senate yesterday.  Before you pack your bags and curse California, let's remember that this isn't law yet.  I've talked about this process and several other bad CA gun bills in this post if you want to get caught up. 

Kevin De Leon is the author of SB 53, which would require a permit to purchase ammunition.  This permit could only be obtained after a criminal and mental health background check was passed (I'm guessing this is basically like the DROS process).  Although, it isn't specifically mentioned, I'm sure the state will quietly start keeping track of all the ammo you are purchasing.  Check out this audio clip from De Leon's radio interview, where he goes full derp.


"Ammunition is the fuel that feeds the violence in California." 

De Leon is backing this up with what research exactly?  Last time I checked far more people died from fists and blunt objects than they did from bullets.  This law wouldn't just punish folks that like to shoot common calibers, it would also make it an even bigger pain in the ass to purchase lead free rounds (that are rarely ever used for crimes) to go hunting in this state.

Many of you are concerned and fearful of a bill like this and the implications it could have if passed.  We both know this bill will do nothing to stop or slow crime, and for some reason or state legislature is hell bent on attacking our freedoms.  As I've said it before, but I'm quite confident this bill won't pass.  Past ammunition bills making it illegal to purchase ammo via the internet were ruled unconstitutional, and if this bill did get that much traction, I'm sure it would share the same fate.

Stay vigilant, and I'll keep you posted on this bill and the others in the future.
