California Court Strikes Down Ammunition Law! In an important victory for California gun owners, the Fresno Superior Court ruled this week that California's new ammunition regulation law is unconstitutional, and blocked further enforcement.
The law -- enacted last year as AB 962 -- banned mail order ammunition sales and required all purchases of so called "handgun ammunition" to be registered. In an unwritten ruling from the bench, Judge Jeffrey Hamilton found the law unconstitutionally vague on its face and issued an injunction against its enforcement. For now, at least, mail order ammunition sales to California residents can continue, and ammunition sales need not be registered under the law.
