Report: California Lawmakers Push Ammunition Registration, ‘Ammunition Purchaser Permit’

June 15, 2014

California lawmakers are considering the creation of an ammunition registry that will require ammunition purchasers to go through a background check–including fingerprinting–and obtain an “ammunition purchaser permit” before getting ammo.  The registry is contained in Senate Bill 53, which passed in the California Assembly Public Safety Committee 5-2 on June 12. According to the NRA-ILA: “If passed and enacted into law, SB 53 would require the collection and reporting of personal consumer information and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases throughout the state. It would also ban online and mail-order sales of all ammunition, including hunting and collectible ammunition.” Additionally, SB 53 would require ammunition purchasers to “register with the Department of Justice” and “obtain a costly ammunition purchaser permit that must be renewed every two years.” Follow AWR Hawkins on Twitter @AWRHawkins  Reach him directly at
