Judge Tosses California Ammunition Purchase Law

A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law requiring background checks for people buying ammunition, issuing a sharply worded rebuke of “onerous and convoluted” regulations that violate the constitutional right to bear arms.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego ruled in favor of the California Rifle & Pistol Association, which asked him to stop the checks and related restrictions on ammo sales.

“The experiment has been tried. The casualties have been counted. California’s new ammunition background check law misfires and the Second Amendment rights of California citizens have been gravely injured,” Benitez wrote in a 120-page opinion granting the group’s motion for a preliminary injunction.

A judge who understands the Constitution? Go figure!

What this means is that California residents can now order ammo online. So the already thin stock levels of online ammo suppliers just disappeared. I was shopping early this morning at SG Ammo, I just went back and saw this:

F in the chat for people who don’t already have plenty of ammo.

This is not going to get better, not anytime soon. Don’t get caught unprepared is the lesson here.

** Update **

SGAmmo is back online but stock is moving fast. Same at Academy and other places.
