Calif. Lt. Gov. Wants Ammunition Background Checks


Weapons without ammo is useless.

California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom has found another way to restrict the rights of gun owners – he is pushing to require background checks to purchase ammunition.    He’s also running for governor of California in the 2018 race.  

Ammunition 4

“Guns In The News” reports that Newsom’s proposal would:

  • Ban possession of and confiscate hundreds of thousands of lawfully possessed magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds;
  • Require licensing of all ammunition vendors and drastically limit the places where ammunition could be sold;
  • Require ammunition buyers to undergo a background check before they could purchase any ammunition; and
  • Turn law-abiding citizens into criminals should they fail to report lost or stolen firearms to police within a limited amount of time after they “should have known” a firearm was missing.

To implement this proposal, he is launching an effort for a ballot amendment – he will need at least 365,880 signatures from registered California voters to qualify for this November’s ballot.    He has already raised over $1 million this year to help offset costs of obtaining the signatures.   He will be able to count on support from liberal billionaires, gun control groups and other progressive organizations across the country.
