View Full Version : Smokeless Powder registration in Sac County

Every store in Sac County that sells powder has the buyer fill out a form that requires name, address, phone, DL number etc. I did a search of the Sac County codes and could not find any ordinance that requires this. Is there another agency or permit requirement behind this? I have asked a few store owners and never has any one of them had those registrations examined by LEO.

So I'm wondering:

What's the point of making us fill this info out? (Aside from the obvious gun owner harassment.)

What authority is issuing this requirement?

When did this requirement come about?

That might very well be a BATFE or a Cal state thing.

If that was the case, you would have to do it everywhere and not just in Sacramento.

A lot of time the fire department/district will have regulations on the storage and sale of gun powder.

That's fantastic. I can't wait for the day when Department of BambiCare will promulgate its lead storage regulations, prohibiting this dangerous, dangerous assault chemical under the same roof as a child.

Probably has to do with someone realizing this:

12102.1. Any person who sells, gives, delivers or otherwise
disposes of 20 pounds or less of smokeless powder, or one pound or
less of black sporting powder, shall first obtain a statement from
the person who purchases or otherwise receives such powder, which
statement shall include:
(a) The name, address and birth date of the person purchasing or
receiving the powder.
(b) The purpose for which the powder is intended to be used,
handled, stored, or possessed.
(c) The type and amount of the powder.
(d) The signature of the person purchasing or receiving the
powder.
(e) The driver's license number, selective service card number, or
other identifying information concerning the person purchasing or
receiving the powder.
My guess is that the area shops have read this part of the H&S code. I wonder what they'd do if I needed 3 eight pound jugs of powder...

In addition to H&S 12102.1, this could also very much be the case.

So this is a state thing, not the county, is that right?

It's a county thing, comes from when some Jackhole tried to blow up that Prof house in downtown Sac. (from what I know / heard)

If you go to Sportsmans Wherehouse in Placer County there is no log book.....
