A brand new regulation for firearms and ammunition has just recently passed into law in California. The new law is apparently infringing on the second amendment rights of law-abiding citizens; at least this is how some gun rights activists feel about the newly passed regulation which was recently approved by voters in the state. The newly approved Proposition 63 seeks to place additional requirements and regulations for ammunitions in general.
Some citizens have expressed their concern about the newly passed law, with a local gun store owner even mentioning that having it implemented wouldn’t really “stop terrorist of violent crime from happening.” Nevertheless, Proposition 63 is happening. One of the biggest gripes about the newly passed regulation by gun rights activists is how it would soon require gun stores to ID their clients for ammunition purchases. The standard practice is usually reserved for firearm purchases, and not for ammunition.
According to the law itself, several regulations will soon be enforced including the prohibition of owning a magazine that holds more than ten round starting in July 2017. By January 2018, special permits from the Department of Justice will be required for anyone who wants to buy ammunition. A year after that, gun stores will be required to run criminal background checks on clients for ammunition purchases.
Additionally, all gun stores will now be required to report any loss of theft of ammunition within 48 hours. Reporting lost or stolen firearms on the other hand are to be reported within 5 days. Failure to do so would immediately result in an infraction for the store in question.
As of the moment, the Department of Justice has yet to release any guidelines on how to properly enforce the new regulations. Local gun stores in California have reported that it is still business as usual as they have yet to receive any new updates from the DOJ.
