This is what the "end game" of gun control looks like:
AB962, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), is in the Assembly Committee on Appropriations. AB962 would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a "handgun ammunition vendor" in the Department of Justice's database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require purchasers submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.
Ever increasing and more draconian restrictions that provide more and more silly hoops for law abiding gun owners to jump through (not to mention more opportunities for accidentally becoming criminals), while real criminals simply ignore the restrictions.
I got the info from a CCRKBA alert, but they don't appear to have posted it to their website. They did include contact information for your legislators in the email, but I don't want to post that here -- it's excessively long for something only of interest to Californians. A little poking around should be sufficient to find the details on this legislation and who to contact in opposition to it.
