California's Latest Anti-Gun Law...

The target? Ammunition!

Yep, the idiocy never ends. The folks of California, foreign and domestic, legal and "dreamer", live and dead voters were recently given an opportunity to vote against a mandate requiring all purchasers of ammunition to register for each purchase of the ammunition when they buy it. The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of the legislation... but that's no surprise.

Now gun owners in California will have some changes happening when they go to buy ammo. They'll need to identify themselves via an acceptable form of identification at least, before each purchase is made. Records will be made by the seller of each purchase and those records will be retained by the seller and the guv'ment.

I remember back in the day... the late 60's and into the 70's here in Washington State and several others where I had to show my identification and sign my life away before I could purchase ANY ammunition... and that was at the point of sale for each sale. I remember buying ammunition from some rather shoddy, surly, non-descript, probably not so "above board" places throughout this country over the years (Sea-Mart, K-Mart, Sears, Ernst, Piggly-Wiggly, TG&Y, etc.) simply to have some ammo on hand to "plink" with when the reloads ran dry and I always wondered what happened to the information I gave. Over time most of those states, including (then not-so-liberal) Washington State dropped the "ammo buyer i.d." rule in favor of personal liberties. But, only the Good Lord  knows what was ever done with my personal information albeit not quite accurate when it was given.

Besides, leave it to Californicatia to cater to those who can afford to "pay to play" when it comes to firearms, ammunition, etc. The average Joe Blow (can I say Joe Blow these days without offending Joe or those providing sexual favors?)... The average Joe Blow won't be able to pay for the increase in ammo to the point of recouping their losses via the increase in seller fees for the costs associated with the new mandatory acquisition of information. Not to mention offsetting the public expense associated with the review and retention requirements and the increased costs of production within that hell-hole of a state... California.

Once again, only the rich, the privileged, the lawless will be able to purchase personal defense ammunition. The rest of the folks will have to steal it or reload it. I'd choose the latter or purchase the ammo out of state.
