California Ammunition Bill: Give Box of Ammo to Sister, Go to Jail

Bill to Restrict Ammunition Sales Takes a Step Forward in the Golden State

Please Contact the Senate Appropriations Committee!

Earlier today, the Senate Public Safety Committee passed Assembly Bill 962.  The bill now moves to the Senate Appropriations Committee for consideration.  No hearing date has been scheduled.

AB962, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a “handgun ammunition vendor” in the Department of Justice’s database.  Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers.  The bill would also require purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be kept in dealers' records and subject to inspection by the Department of Justice.  Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. 

Please contact the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB962.  Contact information can be found below.
