California Democrats Tring To Stop Ammo Sales

Bill would require ammo sellers to be licensed, ban online sales
Wyatt Buchanan

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

On the 10th anniversary of the deadly Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colo., California lawmakers announced new efforts Monday to keep guns and ammunition away from people who are barred from possessing those items.

Assemblyman Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, is backing a bill to require people who sell handgun ammunition to be licensed. It would also require sellers to conduct business face-to-face, bar Internet and mail-order sales, and require a thumbprint and other identifying information of people who buy ammo.

Such information would be given to state officials who could check it against the rolls of people barred from possessing ammunition. Sacramento enforces such limitations and the chief of police said Monday that 50 people have been arrested since the rules took effect in January 2008.

De Leon said the bill would close "dangerous loopholes" in California law. A similar bill that aimed to stop sales of ammunition to prohibited people died in the state Senate last year.

Another bill, introduced by Assemblyman Paul Krekorian, D-Burbank, would establish a new procedure for people who are barred from possessing guns to relinquish those weapons.

They are not trying to "stop" sales as implied but rather prevent lager scale garage sale sales that are help create a shortage. Nothing wrong with require dealers to sell ammo. Some preach gloom and doom over this though. Just like some freaking out and about restricting assault weapon sales. Many of them have no real sporting purpose and are low quality imports and I will not miss them. I can remember many years ago going to gun shows and you saw real guns. Today they are mostly assault weapon sales and military type stuff/gear with really hunting weapons taking a back seat. A real hunter/sportsman would not have one (assault weapon) but a gun nut would.

:roll:

Gee, I didn't realize the 2nd amendment specified guns should have a "sporting purpose". I'll have to read it for the 10,000 time and see if I catch that little tid bit of information this time......

Let me ask Mag how do you determine which part of your constitution to throw away and which part we should keep? Just the parts YOU don't like...
