California’s Worst Nightmare For Gun Owners

California Assembly member, Kevin De Leon, D-Los Angeles, has an absolute bureaucratic nightmare to spring on retired cops, California’s handgun owners and anyone in the security business.

A new special permit will be required with its own fees and duplicated background examination to purchase handgun ammunition.

The fun part for me is Mr. De Leon made no exemption for retired cops covered under HR-218, private investigators, armored car drivers and other people with various government issued handgun carry permits.

California requires any and all handgun carry permit holders to qualify on a regular basis. I guess this is another exercise of “good intentions” with unintended consequences. Perhaps the consequences were intended.

In addition the bill will end any national handgun sporting events in California because out-of-state competitors and visitors will not be allowed to purchase ammunition.

BILL NUMBER: AB 2062 can be found here.

that is such crap man why is it that california gun owners have so much crap to deal with. Arn't we also protected by the second amendment? As a california citizen and gun owner. I feel that we have enough restraints and laws. The politicians should really start focusing on the real problems with california like the economy instead of trying to say that we have a gun problem. With all these restrictions the only people who will have guns are criminals, that makes us feel soo much safer. great job politicians you screwed us once again.
