    Ya,ya I know it's California, it's also run by a ultra-liberal state government. Oregon and Washington also sports very liberal state leadership, they've already closed the "gun show loop hole" here in Oregon. California can't or won't control their budget, crime, gangs, welfare, illegal immigration, on, an
    on, an on, (sound familiar ?) so they throw out a "red herring" and blame all their problems on, yup you guessed it GUNS. I know there are people here that say, "don't worry" it'll never happen here, they said the exact same thing 15 years ago in California. Obama and his "czars" are already looking at California as a model for "Obama land"....Just sayin'

    Ammunition Sales Restrictions, Gun Show Ban Moving Forward in California
    Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

    National Rifle Association
    Sacramento, California --(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the Senate gave final approval to Senate Bill 585 by a 21-18 vote. SB585 now heads to the desk of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) for his consideration.

    SB585 is a stepping-stone to banning gun shows on all publicly-owned property in California. Introduced by State Senator Mark Leno (D-3), SB585 would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on the property or inside the buildings that comprise the Cow Palace in Daly City, just outside of San Francisco.

    The Senate also passed Assembly Bill 962 yesterday by a 21-18 vote. AB962 will now return to the Assembly for concurrence.

    As we reported earlier this week, AB962 was amended by the Senate in an effort to make the bill easier to pass. It remains, however, a serious threat to our rights.

    The Senate removed a requirement that ammunition retailers be licensed to sell ammunition. In addition, the bill would no longer prohibit the private transfer of more than 50 rounds of ammunition during a 30 day period.

    Despite these changes to the bill, AB962 is still unacceptable and represents a dire threat to our ability to exercise our Second Amendment rights. Ammunition retailers would still have to store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill still requires that individuals purchasing ammunition be fingerprinted at the time of sale, mandates that dealers keep these records and make them available for inspection by the Department of Justice.

    Finally, mail order ammunition sales are still prohibited under AB962.

    Please contact Governor Schwarzenegger TODAY and respectfully urge him to veto SB585. The Governor can be reached by phone at 916-445-2841 or via fax at 916-558-3160. To email Governor Schwarzenegger, please visit http://gov.ca.gov/interact. Also, please contact your Assemblymember IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to oppose AB962. Contact information for your Assemblymember can be found at the link below.

    I want to know when the term "liberal" got co-opted by people seeking to trample people's rights...

    It will be interesting to see what the Governator does with this steaming pile of totalitarian poo...

    If that passes I won't go to California again in my life! Never again; Not in a million years...

    Oh wait I haven't crossed that border for about 3 years anyways. I guess i don't miss it down there. To bad, I do have some friends down there that I'm sure are completely unable to relocate in that destroyed police state economy.

    They wanted to ban the transfer of more than 50rds within 30 days? Really? The Governator isn't running again, hopefully that means that he won't sign it under pressure from the extreme left.
