California Moves to Limit Ammunition Sales

Hollow points...the ONLY Ammo for your personal self-defense needs
I found this disturbing news on the Old Glory Radio website:

AB962, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), is in the Assembly Committee on Appropriations. AB962 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 submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

Here is some related info regarding the bills:

It seems to me that lefties know they can't succeed in taking our weapons from they are trying to start an end run around that by limiting ammo sales for handguns.

After all, there is nothing so fearsome to the statists as the thought of private citizens exchanging ammo, or even stockpiling it against the day when we are forced to defend ourselves from government tyranny...and hit the reset button on our form of government.

This bill would make it a crime to give more than 50 rounds of handgun ammo as a gift to a friend or family member...

Personally, I view this legislation (and any like it) as a violation of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and void. Were I living in California, I would be a criminal from the day this bill was passed into law.
