Subject: California Sen. De León Announces Ammo Purchase Permit Bill
Sacramento, CA -( In another Tuesday press release, Senator Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) announced legislative plans to require anyone wishing to purchase ammunition in California to first obtain a California Ammunition Purchase Permit issued by the Department of Justice, valid for one year from the date of issuance. To obtain such a permit, the holder will have to pass a background check. Sen. De León, infamous among gun owners and civil rights groups for his AB 962 ammo ban that passed in 2009, said that “requiring ammunition purchasers to obtain purchase permits and submit to background checks for all types of ammunition would render the NRA challenge Parker v. California case moot.”


The Parker trial court’s injunction against enforcement of AB 962 is currently being appealed by the State.

The bill apparently hasn’t gone “across the desk” in the Legislature just yet.  We’ll definitely be tracking this one and will keep you posted with the latest developments and bill analysis.

Every time I see some new anti-freedom measure in California ( or Illinois) I just have to keep from crying.
