California tries to outlaw Internet commerce

The California General Assembly has passed legislation to outlaw Internet sales of ammunition. The bill would prevent retailers like Cabelas from selling ammunition over the phone or internet to California residents. The legislation is awaiting Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto or signature. He has until October 11th to sign or veto the bill before it becomes law without his signature.

Assembly Bill 962 would require that all sales of ammunition be conducted in face-to-face exchanges. The bill would also require the seller to obtain the buyer’s thumbprint and record the buyer’s driver’s license information.

Additionally, all transaction records must be kept by the retailer “for a period of not less than five years from the date of the recorded transfer,” and the records “shall be subject to inspection at any time during normal business hours by any peace officer…”

Put simply, California is trying to establish a back door registry of all gun owners in California.

If you live in California, you should call Governor Schwarzenegger and tell him to veto AB 962.

You can contact the Governor’s office by Phone (916) 445-2841, Fax (916) 558-3160 or e-mail (http://gov.ca.gov/interact).
