California Ammo Restrictions Going Down

California Ammo Restrictions Going Down

Did you know that in California to buy ammunition, you have to have a background check performed?  Yes, it is true.  I figured that to "bear" arms means arms ready to use, i.e. loaded.  You know.  With ammunition.

Well, not in California.  In fact, I'll not go into the details because I just shook my head and was again thankful for my escape from the C.S.S.R. in 1997.  But apparently the 'background' check is not the same as for purchasing a firearm and in fact, from the little I heard, not much of the needed infrastructure was provided or mandated by the law.

So like everything else in California it has been a huge clusterfuck.  Well, relief might actually be in sight.

"While the Supreme Court’s decision in Bruen makes it clear that the Second Amendment is not a second-class right, in California the ruling class of anti-gun Democrats continues to treat it as if its no right at all. But a case that’s inching its way toward a decision from U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez has the potential to finally compel the state to recognize that our right to keep and bear arms exists, and it can’t be stopped at the state line.

 "Rhode v. Bonta challenges the state’s bizarre ammunition sales restrictions, which forbid residents from purchasing ammunition online or bringing ammo purchased out-of-state into California. Instead, residents are forced to purchase ammunition in person and go through a background check before taking possession. Visitors to California, on the other hand, aren’t allowed to bring ammo with them, and the only way they can buy ammo once they get there is to purchase and use the ammunition at a licensed range."
