AMMUNITION ACCOUNTABILITY ACT: Threat to California or Wild Goose Chase?
By H. Paul Payne, NRA Liaison to the Executive Vice President
January 12, 2009

In response to the huge number of people that believe President-Elect Obama is currently trying to take their firearms rights away by restricting ammunition purchases, several California firearms owners have expressed confusion regarding this issue.

Recently, I have received more than 200 calls and emails regarding the so-called "Ammunition Accountability Act". Almost all of these contacts came AFTER the 2007-2008 California legislative session was over and BEFORE the 2009-2010 California legislative session began! That means that this "threat" to California is FALSE on its face, since it could NOT be real.

Please note that this current hysteria began long before Mr. Obama was elected, AND, as of the date of this article, Mr. Obama has not yet taken office, therefore has no Presidential authority. Also of note is the fact that Mark Ridley-Thomas is NO LONGER in the California State Senate and could not possibly have any of his previous legislation active and/or pending after leaving office...

Doing a lookup on http://www.leginfo.ca.gov produced nearly nothing, save a reference to a bill that (while it uses the same number) has nothing to do with ammo control. Could be wrong, though. Anyone else want to weigh in, or refer us to a non-dupe thread if this one is a dupe?

This one is trying to stomp out all the OTHER dupes of the Ammunition Accountability Act. As Mike says, as Paul Payne has said, as anyone who has looked at this has said, this effort is not currently a subject of a bill in California, and has not been proposed in a bill since 2006 - which bill did not pass as an ammunition bill, but rather something regarding contract negotiations with state employees.
