    Lawsuit to Overturn California AB962 Filed – StateAmmo.com et al vs. State of CA DOJ

    I did some checking through older posts, to make sure this hasn't been brought up yet, and I didn't find it. So without further ado:

    A legal challenge to California’s online handgun ammunition sales ban and fingerprint purchasing requirement (AB962) was recently filed in federal court. A copy of the lawsuit is available at the following link:

    https://www.stateammunition.com/stor....asp?type=News

    The lawsuit was filed by the Chaffin Law Office ( http://chaffinlaw.com )of Ventura, California, on behalf of three Plaintiffs including State Ammunition Inc., a California company selling ammunition online at http://www.stateammo.com, as well as individuals Jim Otten and Jim Russell, both retired members of the United States Marine Corps. Jim Otten, a Minnesota resident, is the owner of http://www.a1ammo.com, a company outside California claiming that as a result of AB962, it will no longer be able to sell to California residents and Jim Russell, a retired Marine Corps Major and a Shooting Sports Director for the Paralyzed Veterans Association of America, who claims that as a result of AB962, he will be unable to purchase bulk handgun ammunition online which he uses to help disabled veterans with rehabilitative organized shooting activities.

    The legal action claims that AB962 violates the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution by banning handgun ammunition sales in anything other than a face-to-face transaction, and therefore eliminating the ability for California residents to buy ammunition from companies outside the state, as well as the ability for companies inside
    the state to sell to out-of-state residents. Plaintiffs also argue that AB962 violates Equal Protection and Due Process rights by criminalizing sales of handgun ammunition to various prohibited persons without defining handgun ammunition, and without giving people to ability to know who is actually a prohibited purchaser.

    The case follows a flurry of anti-gun legislation recently emerging from the anti-gun legislature in Sacramento, including AB50 (2004 ban on 50 caliber BMG rifles), AB1471 (2007 requirement for ballistic microstamping technology), SB585 (2009 attempted ban of gun shows at San Francisco Cow Palace), AB1934 (2009 ban of open carry of unloaded firearms in public), AB1810 (2010 attempt to require permanent registration of long guns), AB2223 (2010 attempt to expand the “lead free” Condor Zone banning the most common and most affordable types of ammunition), among numerous other gun related laws and regulations.

    Might work.... well see.... 5-4 still a scary vote. Kagan will be one of those 4 next time around and she has no EXPERIENCE as a judge.

    As soon as we lose one of the 5 we can all kiss our rights down the drain and California will lead the slaughter.

    The problem with the PRK is that wack jobs run the government from the top down. Don't expect any help from Schwarzenegger, the courts, the legislature, city supervisors, no one. Even the voters are a lost cause.

    Well, the voters aren't a total lost cause. But, you are right on everyone else. I actually think the law suit has a fighting chance. I am excited to see the outcome.

    It would seem so much easier for the businesses to move out of CA, and then have a vote to give CA back to Mexico...isn't LA already the capital?
