California Law Forces Ammunition Stores to Close
Illegal immigration? HIV? Sexual assault? All things of which California Democrats are fans. They like to live dangerously, until it comes to law-abiding sale of ammo. No, no. See, California hates all things guns. So their latest anti-gun power grab should be as surprising as a feminist cat-lady.
The state just made a big oopsie which hurt ammo stores. Almost seems intentional.
A missed deadline at the California Department of Justice is leaving some ammunition stores with a tough choice: close their doors or keep selling ammo while breaking the law.
Ammunition vendor licenses are a new requirement starting Jan. 1, 2018 for stores that sell ammunition but not guns.
The licenses passed as part of Prop 63 and are supposed to be issued by the California Department of Justice. The CA DOJ said last week the licenses would be issued by the deadline, however that didn’t happen.
See what I mean about "intentional"?
When Foothill Ammo owner Chris Puehse opens his Cameron Park store Tuesday, he’ll likely be breaking the law.
“I did all my paper work. I paid the fees. They’ve had time to figure this out. This is not my problem,” Puehse said.
However Craig Deluz, who works for the Firearms Policy Coalition, said the missed deadline will force other ammunition stores to close. To his knowledge, none of the roughly 230 ammunition stores that applied for licenses have been issued them.
The state passed a nonsense law forcing stores to obtain a license. Which they then failed to give out on time. How convenient.
This is why gun owners fight so hard against gun control. It entails more regulations, more fees, more government overreach, more paperwork, and it doesn't even produce the result gun control advocates claim it will. See Narrative Busted: Proof Northern California Shooter Obtained Guns Illegally...
In short? The government gets more control. You get less freedom. Also, if you complain about it, you're probably just paranoid. In which case you may be mentally unfit to possess a firearm. Somebody call the cops.
The mismanagement of this law has revealed itself as a big, fat, unconstitutional power grab. If California fails to distribute these licenses, it's essentially banned the sales of ammunition. Something it shouldn't even have the authority to do.
Behold, "common sense" gun laws at work.
