Expanding the Ammo Ban – what they will try in Your State next

In an effort to destroy Liberty and enslave a large part of the Nation under a banner of communal collectivism, our gang of smug idiots in Sacramento, the Assembly Public Safety Committee, has decided on an illegal and backdoor means to derail the 2nd Amendment by registering ammunition owners. Assembly Bill 2062.

On March 25th a bunch of cretins who can’t budget themselves out of a wet paper bag will consider legislation that would require gun owners to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, wait as long as 30 days to receive a “permit-to-purchase” before buying handgun ammunition, and impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition including criminalizing monthly limits and transfers, even between family members – which I’m pretty sure means spouses too.

Under this vastly expanded Reach of Gubbmint Bureaucracy, permit-holder “Vendors” (ammunition owners, really) would be required to contact the purchase-permit database to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale or transfer. All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax, and mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

You can thank State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45) for the crock of rotting, stinking, festering unmitigated gall-brain-bladder that is Assembly Bill 2062, that puts ammunition sales in jeopardy and ownership at Criminal risk.

  1. George – that’s a very good point, I’m divided on .38 and .45 for the handgun calibers (lotsa both), and between .30-06 and .223 for the rifles – each requires more work. Plenty of .22 for the 1890 Winchester varmint rifle.

  2. A few countervailing facts:Properly sealed, ammo lasts for decades.Ammo is hardly dependent on stable temperatures, can be stored anywhere.A lot of ammo can be stored in a relatively small space if you eliminate the boxes and packing, and sardine-pack it.There will always be states which will refuse to sign on to this back-door gun-banning type of scheme, and all of those states have public storage areas for rent.Some bloggers, myself included, have been warning of this for several years, and have urged readers to buy and store large quantities of ammo.Some bloggers, myself included, have opined that in a TEOTWAWKI or S.H.T.F. scenario, ammunition will be as valuable as gold, and more valuable than the Federal currency.Ammo is expensive, but if your choices of weapons are limited to threat-scenario calibers (one handgun caliber, preferably .38, and one heavy rifle caliber, preferably .308, and .22 rimfire) you can store quite a bit for a few hundred bucks. Acquiring and storing ammo only gets expensive if you have to have many calibers on hand (I’m guilty of this).

  3. Ammo is going to be a big hoplophobe battlefield, especially if the Heller case turns out well. Factor in the ease with which the media can fool the unknowing about the dangers of “armour piercing” ammo and, well, it may be a uphill fight for pro-gunners.If this passes expect a limit on the amount of ammo which can be purchased to follow. After all, who <>needs<> to buy loads of rounds at a time?I’m not sure how the law stands now but it used to be that, for .22LR, you could only purchase 200rds at a time here in N.I.

  4. This is a treadmill bill, one that repeatedly comes out as a part of the Democrat’s Legislative File Folder-O-Fun that they fly around the whole Country. Last year it got shot down, we’ll see if the aim is as good this year.

  5. Let me know when you are ready to move… I will be moving to AZ in 2 years…MD Just passed a bill letting them put up speed cameras everywhere…MD Sucks… but at least we beat back ammo encoding this time around…

  6. The Democrats elected them into office subsequent to taking over ownership of the most gerrymandered districts outright. Any Democrat lost through term-limits is merely a cog in the Machine, replaced by another Democrat. The legislature is immune from reality as well as responsibility.We can’t get rid of the Machine unless we kill-off it’s food (money) supply, which are the four biggest Unions who’s membership feed it directly: Teachers, SEIU, Govt. Employees, and Nurses.Arnold tried to introduce impartial re-districting legislation, new lines to be drawn by a mixed panel of former Justices, but that idea was squashed like a bug and he came out the other side as a Rhinocrat with nothing left but a few years trying to save his “Legacy.”

  7. This is happening here because there is no real opposition ever since the voting districts were Gerrymandered and became the property of the Central Committee.It won’t prevent crime but it will increase the Big-Bureaucracy that “runs” the State (however poorly) – more Unionized State Employee worker-bees who’s dues return in direct support of the Socialist-Fundamentalist Central Committee.Those of you who leave, please raise a battalion or two in Texas and Arizona, and prepare an invasion force to come free us! You can probably raise a Brigade of grateful Iraqis, we’ll give them Hollywood!

  8. Oh good God. This will prevent crime how? Watching the rest of the country relax their laws, allow concealed permits and then see California go in the complete opposite direction makes my frigging head spin. I’ll have to watch this one.

  9. This leaves me with bitter-sweet taste in my mouth regarding the usual looks I get when I start ranting of pulling a “Mencken” on the powers that be.I get proven right too often, and this is another sad tale of Gummint Hooligans doing whatever they want, with NO REPERCUSSIONS FOR THEM, PERSONALLY, WHATSOEVER.Lack of accountability by your government leads to abuse of power.We’s gots ourselves a seriousl problem in this country, and as I’ve said before, we will eventually have to do something about it.Dirt, sorry you must be put upon like this, man. Just rotten crap, this is.

  10. Wow. Just wow. I guess the Second Amendment does not say anything about ammunition, right? Welcome to Kalifornistan… the state where we do not give a shit about your rights. Nothing personal against those still here, but I am thankful to be leaving shortly… Granted, what starts in Kalifornistan will only serve to spread elsewhere, but maybe I can keep ahead of the wavefront of lethal stupidity.
