Atten Californians on ammo bill
California Senate to Consider Sweeping Restrictions on Ammunition Sales!
Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Please Contact the Members of the Senate Public Safety Committee Today!
Assembly Bill 2062, sponsored by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), is scheduled to be considered by the Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, June 17.
AB2062 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 vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyer’s name, driver’s license, the quantity, caliber, type of ammunition purchased, and right thumbprint, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. 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 Senate Public Safety Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this onerous attack on our Second Amendment freedoms. Contact information can be found below.

Tired of all the weird stupid politics.
Eliminate half of the illegal immigrants.
Still be able to drill oil offshore, yet cut national consumption.
Best of all... AZ becomes beachfront.

Hmmm...for some reason this question makes me think of a particular infamous long bearded Middle Eastern man with a sick and twisted agenda.

I need to call some state senators... I really hope this bill doesn't pass.
I got sent an email from Cabelas regarding the issue. Can we get non-Californians to write in and call as well? I'm surprised that this is not a bigger issue than it is on the boards. Is the NRA helping us at all?
Here is the email I got from Cabelas.
I got an email from Cabelas the other day regarding a handgun ammunition bill in California. I don't know if non Californians can call/write, but we need help! Here is what they sent me.
(Oh, by the way, quick instructions to tell Arnold to veto: You can oppose AB 962 by calling 1-916-445-2841
First press 1
then 2 again VETO AB 962)
"We are writing to inform you of pending legislation that will restrict purchases of handgun ammunition in California and will terminate our ability to service your needs for certain products.
On Friday, Sept. 11, the California Assembly passed Assembly Bill 962, by a 44-31 vote.
Among other regulations, AB 962 would:
• Ban all mail-order and Internet sales of handgun ammunition.
• Prohibit the retail sale, the offer for sale or the display of handgun ammunition in a
manner that allows ammunition to be accessible to a purchaser without assistance of a
vendor or employee.
• Require that the delivery or transfer of ownership of handgun ammunition occur in a
face-to-face transaction, with the deliverer or transferor being provided bona fide
evidence of identity of the purchaser or other transferee.
That evidence of identity, which must be legibly recorded at the time of delivery, includes:
• The right thumbprint of the purchaser or transferee.
• The date of the sale or other transaction.
• The purchaser's or transferee's driver's license or other identification number and the
state in which it was issued.
• The brand, type and amount of ammunition sold or otherwise transferred.
• The purchaser's or transferee's signature.
• The name of the salesperson who processed the sale or other transaction.
• The purchaser's or transferee's full residential address and telephone number.
• The purchaser's or transferee's date of birth.
The bill is on the desk of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, where it awaits his consideration. He will have until Oct. 11 to sign or veto the bill. If he does not veto the bill, it will become law.
If you wish to comment on AB 962, you may contact Gov. Schwarzenegger by phone at (916) 445-2841, or via fax at (916) 558-3160. To e-mail Gov. Schwarzenegger, visit
We encourage all Cabela's customers who participate in the shooting sports to contact Gov. Schwarzenegger to voice their opposition to this initiative, which will limit your opportunities to shop with Cabela's, and will restrict the sale of handgun ammunition everywhere in California. "
This shouldn't be an issue.... becuase you SHOULD NOT live in California!
Do you need another reason to move?!
Work, work, work , work, work...
The only reasoin we are still here is work!
I agree and have called and eamiled :

Man..I was going to say something very similar than I scrolled down to see your post. They should turn the place into a Liberal leper colony The best view of Cali I ever had was seeing it in the rear view on my way out.
