Califonia Gun Owners Scramble as new Ammo law Takes Effect
Article from The Hill by Owen Daugherty.
Gun owners in California are stocking up on ammunition as the state’s new law requiring background checks to purchase ammo takes effect.
The new law, which goes into effect Monday, makes California the first state in the country to require background checks for ammo purchases. In the week ahead of the law’s implementation, gun owners were flocking to stores to buy ammo, according to USA Today.
Under the new law, all ammo sales must take place in person, even if the initial purchase was made online, individuals will have to come in and pick up the ammo in-store.
If a gun owner is already in the state’s registry and cleared with a background check, they will only pay a $1 processing fee each time they go to buy ammo to run the background check as a “spot check” to ensure there are no new criminal convictions or mental health red flags.

LMAO…they deserve everything they get, for voting for the trash they vote for. Remember, elections have consequences.
No they don’t. If California can do it and get away with it, YOUR STATE IS NEXT!
You’re right and on top of that, gun owners in California probably didn’t vote for the Democrats who are running their state into the ground. But those who did may not deserve but are asking for the gun violence that happens because people aren’t not allowed to protect themselves. I remember seeing a picture of a nice home with a sign in front that said the owner was pro 2nd Amendment and had guns but his neighbor was against the 2nd Amendment and was against gun ownership. It also said the homeowner respected his neighbor’s belief and promised not to use his guns to stop criminal activity at his neighbor’s house.
If one candidate is a leftist Democrat and the other is a RINO, you have no choice.
Just another way for California to extract tax money from the citizens. A conservative has no representation in this state. Gasoline taxes just went up another .3 ½ ¢ a gallon as of July 1st and going up another .72¢ January 1.
So much for Democrats caring for the little guy!!
Short story: they created a new tax. Gun stores can now raise prices as they just outlawed purchasing online or from out of state.
Meanwhile, if an illegal has ammo, they are provide an escape through the judges chamber to avoid ICE, given free housing, food, healthcare and welcomed in Sanctuary City. But, a black US citizen gets the 3 strikes you’re out law, welcome to prison. No outrage over this?
Why should there be outrage? Blacks almost always vote for Democrat for all the freebies they get promised. 3 hots and a cot seem fair.
