California Governor Signs Ammunition Sales Bill

Gov. Schwarzenegger signed into law a bill that requires buyers of handgun ammunition to leave thumbprints and detailed personal information with registered ammo sellers, as well as put restrictions on online bullet sales.

The restrictive restrictions will take effect Feb. 1, 2011.

Authored by Assemblyman Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, the bill bans direct shipping to Californians who buy bullets via mail order or over the Internet.

Instead, any ammo they buy would need to be picked up at a licensed handgun ammunition dealer.

Ammunition that can be used in both pistols and rifles — like the popular .22 caliber round used by target shooters and small game hunters — fall under the new restrictions.

The bill also requires that those purchasing ammunition provide photo ID and a thumbprint.

The information would be kept on file and made available to law enforcement agencies.

    That is such BS. If they spent more time enforcing the laws they ALREADY HAVE instead of wasting time with new ones, the country would be much better off!!

    Seems like the Junior Range Shooting of 22 caliber target rifles is now illegal, since possesion by a minor of 22 caliber ammunition would be illegal. I used to spend every monday night at the local indoor Junior Rifle shoot from 6th grade to 12th grade. No youths will be able to enjoy the same.
