Top cops from these states filed an amicus brief (link below) in support of California, which recently passed a law that requires background checks for all ammunition purchases. Thatís right, every time you want to buy a box of ammunition to do some target practice, California redcoats want you to wait for their permission.

Of course, limiting access to arms and ammunition necessarily puts people at risk, but the purpose of the law isnít to make things any safer, itís to inhibit the ability or willingness of people to buy ammunition. To put it simply, ammo control is gun control, full stop.

Unable to apply critical thinking skills, or at least lacking a basic understanding of microeconomics, the AGs for these states want a system in place that restricts the supply of ammunition, which means people will either find black market sources or off-the-books methods to acquire what they want. Just because you constrain a supply doesnít mean you diminish demand. People will cross the border to buy ammo in other states or theyíll slap together a reloading bench like they should have done years ago.

Why do you say "Ammunition control is dead" ?  It is very much alive, and your post proves it.  My brother lives in CA.  He recently went to buy a 20-round box of .30-'06 for his old '03-A3, and had to pass a background check.........and he is a retired LEO.

  No words for the level of stupidity and rancid ideas they can push into law.
Washington is ripe for some changes. Lets hope some of these entrenched bureaucrats get booted soon.

 Remind me again which one of those states, besides Maryland, Mass, has a Republican governor or IG?
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Hopefully, the SCOTUS will start doing its job on 2A. It's been a long time since they have.
