California Renews Effort to Register Ammunition Owners

Ammunition

Despite the fact that the California Assembly’s attempt to pass such a measure resulted in an as yet unresolved state Supreme Court battle, the Senate is advancing a bill that would allow the Department of Justice to register and record all ammunition purchases statewide.

The NRA Institute for Legislative Action released a statement expressing outrage over Senate Bill 53, which it explains would require anyone buying bullets to submit to fingerprinting and a background check. They would also be forced to register and pay a renewal fee every two years, the ILA explains.

“In doing so, SB 53 would impose drastic and unjustified restrictions on law-abiding gun owners while doing nothing to reduce violent crime.”

The bill is designed to shut down all ammunition purchases made online or via mail order – including hunting and collectible rounds.

In addition to the obvious concerns Second Amendment advocates have regarding such legislation, even far-left Gov. Jerry Brown thinks lawmakers should refrain from pushing for an ammunition owners registry until the legal challenge against the previous bill is settled.
