Further Erosion of California Gun Rights

Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law Assembly Bill 962. This bill enacts draconian ammunition registration. Requiring vendors and FFLs to keep records on all ammunition sales. It also bans internet and mail order sales. All in the name of safety and stopping crime.

Of course since criminals do not obey the law, they’ll just drive to Nevada and buy their ammo there. Then distribute amongst their friends.  Number of crimes prevented – zero!


Thankfully, the provision that was going to limit ammunition purchases to a mere 50 rounds a month was struct from the bill. As such would have been a de facto ban on sports shooting and self-defense training.  (And something that I believe would have constituted a violation of the Constitutional rights of Americans so grievious as to require civil disobedience.)

However, the definition of ammo is very loose. Including magazines, clips, reloading supplies.

Read the Bill


I have contemplated some way of letting the Governator know that this was just wrong.  Back when the 50 round limit was proposed, I had the idea to ship the governor 51 rounds of ammo (or perhaps just bullets so as to dissaude any argument of having mailed a governor explosives).

Perhaps instead of Tea Bags we should enact a campaign and mail Office of the Governor empty used brass. (Preferbly .22LR brass as anything else you should reload or give to a friend who reloads.)

“Why do actors have to ruin things by being in politics. I loved watching a good ol’ Arnhold film now and then.”
