California Bill to Require Registration of Handgun & Rifle Ammunition Nears Floor Vote
SACRAMENTO, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- SB 124 would redefine “handgun ammunition” to include many commonly used rifle rounds and allow for full implementation of AB 962 – an ammunition registration law passed in 2009, portions of which were recently ruled unconstitutional by the capitolcourts.
Under the provisions of AB 962, mail order and internet sales of handgun and some rifle ammunition would essentially be banned given that all transactions must now be completed “face-to-face”.
Additionally, sportsmen and women would be forced to submit personal information when buying commonly-used sporting ammunition, even though they had already undergone an extensive background check with the purchase of the firearm.
Please contact your Legislator immediately and ask them to oppose SB 124. For more information regarding how to contact your Legislator, click here.
