Schwarzenegger Signs bill to track Ammunition Sales

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bevy of bills into law, including one that will require ammunition sellers to collect and keep information from all buyers, including a thumbprint, signature and driver's license data. That reverses his earlier position.

"Although I have previously vetoed legislation similar to this measure, local governments have demonstrated that requiring ammunition vendors to keep records on ammunition sales improves public safety,'' Schwarzenegger said in a statement.



Well everyone has said it was coming, California will now be tracking ammunition sales. Any other states doing this? How long before it reaches the East Coast?

LOL... now the drug pushers will be selling black market ammo along with drugs. Maybe some enterprising drug pusher could offer a "Box of nines with your 10 bag" . :roll: How much you wanna bet ammo sales go through the roof in surrounding states?

"Tracking" first, followed by "Limiting". My guess is in the future, you won't be able to buy over a certain amount of rounds, as designated by the government as "Excessive" or "dangerous". :mad:

WTF terminator!! Are you shaving your legs now, too? Who's the "Girlie-man' now? Tough to get ammo here also.
I wonder if someone in power is worried that some folks may not take too kindly to this direction of governance. :mad: :shock: ;) :roll:

This is such bullshit. "local governments have demonstrated that requiring ammunition vendors to keep records on ammunition sales improves public safety"... bullshit. I want to see this evidence. I bet this was almost 100% about local and state sales tax revenues, not some fabled, mythical boon to public safety. With the ammunition availability issues over the last year or so people have been flocking to online and mail order vendors, "robbing" the state and local governments of their cherished sales tax revenues... Never mind that the local retailers don't have enough ammo to sell any more than they are already and thus this won't increase sales tax revenues one iota, logic goes out the window when anti-gun lobby groups and record budget shortfalls meet.

Of course the loss of liberty, the gross government intrusion into free markets and exchange of goods (goods that are part and parcel of state and federal constitutional protections no less), and the ridiculousness of requiring ID and sales tracking information to be collected and maintained on each transaction of an item that easily sells 10's of millions of units per year in the state...

Arnie you just made it onto my list of political enemies, count on your conservative primary opponent to be getting my campaign donation money. Why would a New Yorker be donating to a Cali governor hopeful? Because California, sadly, leads the way on much of this bullshit liberal policy making and it inevitably hits New York within a year's time where I end up having to care twice as much, advocate twice as hard, and donate that much more... So, again, thanks for nothing Ahhhnold. Time to start looking around for acting work again.

He probably signed the bill that was seeking to ban gun shows as some public venue outside of San Fran too. First step to banning all gun shows and industry exposition events in the entire state, no doubt.

Huh... just found out that Arnie vetoed the bill that was attempting to ban gun shows at the Cow Palace venue outside of San Fran. Why on earth would he veto that yet sign the unjustifiably intrusive and highly dubious (with regard to effectiveness) ammunition sales regulation bill?

There's an effort brewing to amend upcoming legislation in the California Assembly (AB373) so that it would repeal this new ammunition sales regulation law.

Keep tabs on the effort and see what you can do to help:

keep in mind that the main goal is to stop ammo purchasing. They are going to continue to attack the second and go after ammo and reloading. Look at the lead ammo ban proposals coming up. They want to serialize the ammo and make you give up you current ammo stash. Keep in mind they are after coal ash as well. Now you can't heat and shoot. This country can fly the commie flag real soon if the public does not wake up and smell the coffee. If you get rid of George Sorous ( I do not know who to spell his name and do not care to) Obama's Big booster and a registered guest at the white house some of this will temper down for a short time. Another cronnie will surface (take your pick with this administration) and the fight will still continue. Good bless the USA and all of the true Americans. Take the fight to Congress and the Senate do not give up people.
