    ****UPDATE 06-04-09****

    Alright guys this ridiculous bill has passed the Assembly and moved to the Senate for a vote - not good news at all and we've got work to do!! It only passed by ONE (1) vote so that tells you how possible it is to defeat this thing!! Here's the latest documentation - PLEASE contact your representatives and let them know where you stand!!


    Find out who your representatives are - contacting your senator ASAP is the most important thing right now since this is headed there for a vote next:

    ****UPDATE 05-29-09****

    Vote on Two Anti-Gun Bills Could Come Next Week!
    Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!
    Yesterday, the Assembly Committee on Appropriations passed Assembly Bill 962.

    Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 would make it a crime 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 purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. AB962 now heads to the Assembly floor for consideration.

    The bill could be voted on as early as next week so it is imperative that you make your voices heard loudly. Please contact your State Assemblymember TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB962. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here: http://www.capwiz.com/nra/state/main...ew=myofficials.

    ****UPDATE 05-06-09****

    Ammunition Sales Restrictions One Step Closer to Defeat
    Assembly Committee on Appropriations Places AB962 into the Suspense File

    Today, Assembly Bill 962 was placed in the suspense file by the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.

    Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 would make it a crime 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 purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

    While this development is a solid step towards defeating AB962, the bill still poses a threat. Please continue checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates.

    Ammunition Sales Restrictions Moving Forward in California

    Yesterday, the Assembly Committee on Public Safety considered two bills of great concern to California’s law-abiding gun owners.

    Assembly Bill 962 was passed and now heads to the Assembly Committee on Appropriations where it awaits a hearing. Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB962 would make it a crime 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 purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.
