A new law is officially in effect in California that will require background checks on all ammunition purchases, as the state with the strictest gun laws in the country further infringes upon the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“At the end of the day, it is a perverse fact: Guns don’t kill people. Unless a gun is used as a blunt instrument, a gun is not particularly dangerous,” gun-grabbing Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom said on Monday. “A gun requires a dangerous component and that’s ammunition.”
“The reality is, if we’re only monitoring gun sales, we’re only looking at part of the problem and part of the equation,” Newsom’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra said.
Gun owners have reportedly been stocking up on ammo in anticipation for the new infringement to come into effect. Sales have spiked a stunning 300 percent in recent weeks, according to a gun shop owner.
“In the last two weeks I’ve been up about 300 percent,” as people are “bulking up because of these stupid new laws,” a Sacramento shopkeeper who sells ammo said.
“Most of the people who are coming in are avoiding it,” said John Parkin, owner of Burlingame’s Coyote Point Armory. “It’s another right that the state of California is trying to take away from us.”
“Locking a door doesn’t stop a thief from breaking in, so putting another restriction on ammunition it’s not going to stop a crazy person or person with mental illness from getting ammunition or a firearm,” an LA-area gun store owner said.
The gun-grabbers are celebrating this measure as another step toward their end goal of disarming all Americans and making them sitting ducks without any way to resist violent criminals and heavy-handed government bureaucrats.
“They were able to get it through online sales delivered right to their very front door, like a pizza, with no background check or kind sort of regulation whatsoever,” said Robyn Thomas of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
“Ammunition is the oxygen that fuels the violence we see in our communities every single day and our law enforcement needs to know who’s buying it,” Senate Pro Tem Kevin De Leon said. “Our law enforcement needs to know who’s selling it.”
Voters approved the measure in 2016, and it was ordered to come into effect by July 1. It will require a prospective ammo buyer’s information to be cross referenced with whatever is on file with the Department of Justice’s Automated Firearms System. If the information is not found, the individual will be burdened with a fee and a waiting period of up to ten days to make the buy.
The California Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Rifle Association have filed lawsuits challenging provisions of the new burdensome law, which are still pending in court.
Florida Sheriff Will Deputize Gun Owners if Rioters “Overwhelm” County
He’s not messing around.
A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.
Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.
“If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.
The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.
“If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”
Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
