    California outlaws inet pistol ammo orders

    I was on the Cabelas website order a few things and noticed a statement that as of 2011, handgun ammo orders to them from California will not be accepted due to new law. Anyone else hear of this? How can they sell a product within the state, but not allow you to purchase it out of state. Also, does this include all 22 rimfire ammo? What about carbines that fire handgun rounds?

    Because their new law requires ID and fingerprint or log to buy ammo and a 50 round a month limit or something like that. Just drive to NV or AZ

    Here is some info on it. I do remember this passing and wondering how this would work out. I would say not good for Cali shooters. Too bad.

    With the passage of AB 962, anybody purchasing handgun ammunition in California will have to register with the state starting on February 1, 2011. What this means to gun owners in California, and the rest of America, will have repercussions for years to come.
    California consumers will have to provide their name, address, date of birth, and right thumbprint to the seller in order to complete the transaction. The seller must maintain these records for at least five years and make them available to inspection for any law enforcement official conducting an investigation where ammunition records may be relevant.
    All transactions must be conducted in person, so mail order sales will be banned.

    Yes I just verified it. House Bill 962, signed into law in November. This should be challenged.

    I should set up an ammo shop on the border and give CA's who drive in discounts.

    do these people actually think this is going to affect crime in any way? What a ludicrous law!

    Like Indiana does with fireworks to people of ohio?
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I wish. All CA gun laws should be challenged, if you ask me. Very little common sense in that state.

    Maybe California passed a bill to outlaw common sense?

    With the stupidity of CA I think the time has come for us to have two seperate nations. One based on socialism and the other based on minimal government and individual responsibility. Oh and another thing, the minimal government nation will not support nor send monetary aide to the socialist country.

    It would be great if this were true, but that idea was quashed back in A. Lincoln's day. It was called, "The War of Northern Aggression". Sadly the wrong side was victorious in that fiasco.

    Those of us who live in Commiefornia are used to it. It has nothing to do with logic; it is another stupidity that harasses gun owners. The law is being challenged and will be heard in January. Please take the Central Valley of California (where all the farms and conservatives are) and let us join Arizona; I love their governor!

    Good ol' Cali lawmakers, breathing that weird air up in Sacramento.

    I young guy I work with has family in CA (just 5 hours from the Phx area), and all the siblings are shooters. His brother from San Diego came out for the big 3-day gun show in Phoenix a few weeks ago, but he refused to take his vehicle with Cali plates to the show... seems there are rumors of CA law enforcement staking out the 50-acre parking lot, looking for folks loading their purchases into vehicles with Cali plates. No way to discern the truth, but the mere notion is enough to make one be cautious.

    You know, every few years one state or another threatens to secede from the Union - Texas, Montana, Idaho... but never, ever California! Sadly, the state where the "forty-niners" (the miners, not the football team) risked much in the name of independence has become such a nanny-state.

    1. Reload practice ammo... Most do that anyway.
    2. Move away.....
    3. or just not attend practice or any events in Cali.... you can go to an event and buy the ammo in that state.

    Sadly, California is where I grew up, joined the Army, became a LEO and worked in the defense industry. California is a failed state of impoverished citizens, corrupt bureaucrats, and labor unions. Crime is openly welcomed and the governor wants you to bail them out so they can do it all over again. The irony is that those who boycotted Arizona are now moving here!
