    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.<br>

    Where are the weak sisters here who said we don't need to be concerned with liberals passing gun bans and limits because the Second Amendment protects us?

    I was assured that Jefferson, Madison, and others had so eloquently covered our butt, and that legislation from front door bans to de facto bans with unreasonable taxes, and banning certain components that would make it impossible to exercise our 1st and 2nd amendment rights were so well written that we will be able to simply litigate these issues and show BO and Holder that they cannot prevail.

    I'm sure I was misinformed though and p....dennis will gladly bring us to speed as to why we can all rest assured that our government is just blowing smoke.

    Everyone should read Mark Levin's book entitled Liberty and Tyranny to get a true perspective as to what is going on in OUR country.

    Just looked at the Bill.

    Purpose does not seem to be to prevent large purchases.

    HOWEVER, after the registry is established, a new law could be made to make purchasers verify what they do with their ammunition. For example, if someone bought a case of handgun ammunition, let's say 10 boxes times 50 rounds per box = 500 rounds, he would have to register this purchase, with a thumbprint no less. Then, at sometime in the future, the authorities would be empowered to ask this person to verify what he did with these 500 rounds of ammunition. Since it would be illegal to transfer more than 50 rounds per month, the shooter who shot more than 50 rounds in a month would have to show when, where and how much he shot.

    This would be a royal pain in the you know what. Maybe they would have to keep notaries at target ranges.

    Protest, protest & protest. Can't allow this to happen. If you're not an ERA member, then join. Infringe on your ammunition and then isn't the same as infringing on your gun rights? Next thing you know is you'll be limited to one 6 pack a month. Now that would really hurt. BT-100dc

    It's de facto gun registration, with a twist. You do not have to register yourself to purchase ammo, UNLESS you buy more than 50 rounds a monthy. If you chose not to register, you are banned from buying more.<br>
    <br>
    Note that the Supreme Court ruled years ago that criminals do not have to register themselves when it comes to firearms, because that violates their Fifth Amendment right of self-incrimination. My question is, why do I, as a law-abiding citizen, not get to enjoy the same Fifth Amendment rights that criminals do?

    Are you sure there is a ban on buying more than 50 rounds per month without registering?

    I think you only have to register to sell or transfer to someone not in your family.

    If this gouging continues, people may start to support regulating resellers. It's becoming a sad situation and those bottom feeders that are tailgating ammo are not our friends. Those involved are nothing but modern day Irish Travelers.....One scam runs out...They move on to the next one.

    Seriously,

    Expect laws which will require citizens to account for each and every round of ammunition.
