<H1 style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=center>California Assembly to Consider Severe
Restrictions on Ammunition Sales!

Stand Up and Make Your Voice Heard Today!

Next Wednesday, March 25, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will consider legislation that would require gun owners to obtain a “permit-to-purchase” before buying handgun ammunition.

Introduced by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), Assembly Bill 2062 puts ammunition sales in the crosshairs. AB2062 would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition. Applicants for a “permit-to-purchase” would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit.

Under AB2062, it would be unlawful 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 vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyer’s name, driver’s license, the quantity, caliber and type of ammunition purchased, and right thumbprint, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice or the number of his handgun ammunition purchase permit. Vendors would be required to contact the purchase permit database, to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale. All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

Please contact the members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and your State Assembly Member TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this onerous attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.

I have told you guys this along time ago,,,We have the Right to Bear Arms but it did not say anything about AMMO!!!! The lawyers will be on this like a bear on honey! You better buy all you can NOW. Put it away and say NOTHING. Pretty soon we will all have expensive clubs in our safes. If there are local militias in your area(not wako jobs) join and support them. I suggest if you and militia go to a range to shoot wear regular civies,,shoot .22 and 9mm/45 and dont bring the SKS/AK's out.Dont give the impression of a Para Military group. Now is the time to think and be smart (or smarter than lawyers).
