Arizona Rifleman summarizes how it’s going to affect ammunition purchasers in California. It’s not too late to call the Governator to ask him to veto this bill. It’s a good thing they got that ammo shortage in Reno squared away, because I predict there will be more ammunition moving throughÂ Donner Pass than was moving on the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the height of the Vietnam War.

If I was an ammo retailer in a state bordering California, I would be looking forward to this passing. I can see all the Californians heading out of state to stock up on ammo.
All this bill proves is that California doesn’t want people to do business in the state.
That’s why they’re building all those warehouses up in Reno, so on-line retailers can fulfill next-day deliveries to CA residents without having to actually be IN California.
Buy stock in NV warehousing construction companies, it’s a growth industry as CA becomes even more regulatory and business unfriendly. Pretty soon the whole state will be one giant suburb of consumers-only, while producing nothing.
I’ve been blogging this since I first heard of it. So far the Californians I know are having a fit. At least one has stopped his house hunt there and is looking towards a different state to buy in. For those that follow my blog NOT in the ‘great’ state of CA there is a head-in-the-sand view. I feel that if this becomes the status quo in CA many other gun-unfriendly states may adopt it; thus begins the descent into UK style gun policy within a decade.
Step 2: Complain about all the Californians who simply drive across the border into NV to purchase their ammo. Hammer the editorial pages about this “problem”.
Step 3: Introduce a similar or identical bill at the federal level to “close this gaping loophole”.
They win in California because it’s easy ground to fight on. They’d have an uphill battle at the federal level.
“I feel that if this becomes the status quo in CA many other gun-unfriendly states may adopt it; thus begins the descent into UK style gun policy within a decade.”
Y’know, I used to think that was a certainty, but I’m not sold on it anymore. We’re rapidly turning into two countries as far as gun laws go: Over the last 20 years, the CA/IL/MA/NJ/NY axis has gotten worse, while most every other state has gotten better in the same amount of time, at least regarding state level gun laws.
With respect to firearms legislation, the old saw that “When California sneezes, the rest of the nation catches a cold” has proven to be just so much BS.
Sooooo, what would be the result if firearms dealers and ammo dealers just stop selling in CA? Especially to the LE industry. Think it might get some attention?
I wonder if the police will have to cross the border to get their training ammo?
Now when arnold doesn’t sign it it will then be introduced in MA/IL/NJ/NY I wonder how many of those will be passed.
