Ammo Registry

Governor Schwarzenegger signs California’s ridiculous ammo bill. If you buy ammo, you will be registered.

    So will ammo companies pull a Barrett and stop selling to LE in Cali ?

  2. Charlie Foxtrot Says:

    According to the website, Schwarzenegger allowed the bill to become law without his signature.

    A cowardly, despicable failure to act either way.

  3. Like I Says:

    I believe it only applies to handgun ammo and takes effect July 2011. Never the less, it’s stupid. Hopefully this will wake up CA gun owners and they will become proactive in the war on guns – yeah, right.

  4. BobG Says:

    Good way to start a black market on ammo in California.

  5. Weer'd Beard Says:

    +1 to Pete, Ammo Companies could squash this lickity-split if they pulled a Barret.

  6. Chas Says:

    That seems to be the way the game is played in Cali. Arnie signs one bill, vetoes others so that he can claim he supported gun owners, while gun owners get incrementally screwed with one law after another.
    This law directly impacts every law-abiding gun owner in California while having no effect on criminals.

  7. B Woodman Says:

    I can see another rush on ammo especially just before the enactment date.
    Time to start building up stocks and supplies now, slow & steady.

  8. B Woodman Says:

    ANd I keep seeing ads on the TV, “come to Kalifornia.”

    Yeah, right.

  9. ka Says:

    “come to Kalifornia.”

    My wife and I just laugh every time we see those commercials. Oklahoma isn’t paradise, but California? No way.

  10. Robert Says:

    Yeah. Yet another reason to NOT go to Kali.

  11. Chas Says:

    Markie Marxist sez: “Cool! My Marxist amigos on the left coast do it again! Now we can move on to the next round of gun control laws designed to harass law-abiding gun owners out of existence while doing nothing to impede our Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals! It’s a great day for communism in Commiefornia!”

  12. Ken Says:

    So will LuckyGunner and Cheaper Than Dirt have to follow suit or are they exempt from this?

    Or is is illegal to ship ammo to Kali?

    If it legal it sounds like a good business to get into if you still in a free state.

  13. Paul Says:

    I read the proposed law and it will only allow face to face transfers with documentation. all sales including private party are covered. Hand gun ammo gets special treatment as a thumb print is included in the documentation. The biggest window is dual purpose ammo. If your rifle can shoot what your pistol can you have to leave a thumb print.

    Arnie was hog tied in that even if he vetoed the law would become law. They did an end around on him. Personally, I would not move to California and have had that attitude since the early 70’s.

    I hear some horses off in the distance.

  14. sam Says:

    Arnie actually signed the bill. Law takes effect Feb. 1, 2011. If it does. The Cal Guns Foundation ( has been preparing for this fight for some time. Lawsuits are about ready to go.

    Stay tuned.

  15. DirtCrashr Says:

    Fortunately the law was written by imbecilic drooling cretins. Our CA Legislature, living in gerrymander protected, Politburo-controlled districts, has no requirement to show any actual intelligence and is therefore dominated by preening, self-congratulatory rent-seekers and identity-politic narcissists who are perfect embodiments of the Cornell Study: Unskilled and Unaware of It. Their massively over-inflated self-esteem prevents them from recognizing their own vast stupidity. But the same problem might present to Arnold…
    The Bill, as written is subject to Federal preemption already. I hope Alan Gura makes a lot of money off California.

  16. Diomed Says:

    Probably a good time to be an ammo retailer in Reno…

  17. DirtCrashr Says:

    It’s a fun smackdown when the Media have to report it, this thing cannot stand the sunlight.

  18. DaddyBear Says:

    Diomed brings up a good point. Does the law say anything about bringing in ammo from out of state? Will we see gun shops spring up just across the border like we see smoke shops along the Kentucky/Indiana/Tennessee border?

  19. Mark Says:

    California demonstrates yet again why I will never take orders to California.

    I lived there from 1979 to 1998, when I left for Japan.
    SB23 passed while I was overseas. Because of it I only go back to California to see family.

  20. David Says:

    “If you buy ammo, you will be registered.”

    No! I! Won’t!

    I get out of this sorry assed, God forsaken State at least 3-4 times a year. Warning to all the ammo suppliers in NV, AZ, UT and WY. Me and my credit card will be stopping by a couple times a year. Have a hand truck ready to help me get my purchases out to the car.

    To the local gun store where I usually do business. Sorry, I won’t be buying ammo there any more. I know it sucks, but our whiney assed, pansy sniffing, tree hugging gun grabbing radical left state legislature and our Democrat in Republican clothes governor won’t listen to me, maybe they will listen to you. Oh, since I have to buy ammo that I shoot at your indoor range from you, I won’t be using that range anymore either. I’ll see you out at the outdoor range. At least until they shut that down also.

    This is a perfect example of liberal thinking – times are tough, unemplyment is high and getting higher, the economy is in the tank. How can we fix that? Lets pass laws that will make doing business here even tougher. What a bunch of morons, and I mean that in the most derogatory manner possible.

  21. Pathfinder Says:

    I say we all – everyone, every store, every manufacturer, immediately stop all sales of anything even remotely related to firearms – ammo, sales, spare parts, repair service – everything – to anyone in kalifornia.

    Good people have to stand up to evil – now is the time.

    If I owned a gun store in any neighboring state, I would refuse all orders and sales to kalifornians. Period.

  22. Crotalus Says:

    The real problem is that this is also a sneaky way to find unregistered guns, as in, “Why are you buying 30.06 ammo? You don’t have one of those registered, but you must have one, Comrade!”

  23. Crotalus Says:

    And why would you deny sales to Californians who drive to your store, Pathfinder? Deny CA law enforcement, for sure, but don’t punish the average CA gun owner looking for a way around this damnfool legislation.

  24. DirtCrashr Says:

    Oh great, punish the victims.
    Anyhow by smacking-down this weak and wobbly excuse for a law, new case-law that creates further holes in anti-gun legislation builds-up.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
