So did the ammunition law go into effect? Registration of 50 rounds? I was a Bass Pro Shops the other day and all handgun ammo was in the case and registration was required to buy it

The state law does not take effect until 2011, however, some local laws may be in affect!

No city laws in Manteca Ca where this Bass Pro is, must be a company wide policy of some type. Not sure what they are enforcing then

the requirement for the handgun ammo to be kept away from the customer is state law, part of AB962. The logging requirement part of 962 doesn't start until Feb, so I don't know why they are doing it now.

and the definition of handgun ammo for the law is vague enough that many types of "rifle" ammo would fall under the defintion of the law. In addition, it has been reported that CADOJ does not plan to publish supporting regulations to clarify the definition. So, since .22LR ammo is used in many handguns, it could be considered handgun ammo, and would need to be locked up.

I've heard of some stores sequestering ALL non-shotgun ammo behind the counter so they don't accidentily violate the law.

How about the private transfer of ammo? I herd that part was removed.

Per an NRA email, Monday the "Safety Committee" considers expanding 962 with AB2358, and inlcude .223 and 7.52x39. Just to make sure we are all even safer, from ourselves, I guess, but not the bad guys. Obviously, all these laws are really about whittling away at the 2nd Amendment, since they cannot outright defeat that straight-on. That dip****, Deleon, who sponsered 962 originally intended to limit us to 50 rods per month, but at least that got stripped out. Check the NRA site and call these nice folks on the committe and express your opinion.
