OK, I've seen Yolo County is on the restricted list for mailing ammo to. Now my question is what is the law specifically for is it for handgun or rifle ammo or both? I've looked all over the internet to find what exactly the law is but can't find it.

I know several companies still sell out here, and I know I can go to Big 5 in Davis and I'm not asked for ID to purchase ammo (which I figured they would ask for it just being Davis).

Thank you in advance for anyone who can post a link to the actual law in Yolo County!

I believe the ban is any and all mail order ammunition sales. Welcome to Yolo!

So I've emailed the district attorneys office to get an official answer. I've looked over and over Yolo county web site, and found nothing. I've looked over the internet and found nothing other then companies who won't ship to Yolo county. There is one old reference to some DA suing one company for selling to a minor. But that is hearsay and nothing was quoted to an actual case.

If it were an actual law why do some companies sell to Yolo county and others won't? I've got my big girl panties in a knot over this!

There is no law about it in Yolo County. I just read through your county code. It was far shorter than LA county, lucky you.

These two threads cover what your thinking:

I live in Woodland and I've never had a problem ordering ammo online, be it handgun or rifle. I should add that includes shipments from Midway, Natchez, and Luckygunner.

See I did as well and could find nothing. So its individual companies that make these decisions then or? That is what I'm having a problem with, why some will ship and others won't? I just want to know the reason behind not shipping to Yolo county as I can find not one legal reason for them not to!

Even local dealer Sacramento Black Rifle has on their website they won't ship to Yolo. Which is mute as I think most would just make the trip up there anyway for an excuse to stop in at Thunder Valley!

For some reason that no one has been able to determine, a list was compiled of counties and municipalities where mail order ammunition was banned and was then shared among a fairly large number of ammunition suppliers who all used it as a boilerplate. The problem is that the list is more fiction than fact and has proved to be a source of annoyance to quite a few California gun owners. My county is on the boilerplate, but there is no such ordinance.

I just pulled up the PDF of the ATF's document "State Laws and Published Ordinances -- Firearms," last revision dated December 2009.

http://www.atf.gov/publications/download/p/atf-p-5300-5/atf-p-5300-5.pdf

A search in the document for Yolo returns absolutely zero hits.

As a test, searches for the Usual Suspects -- Sacramento, Oakland, Los Angeles, San Francisco -- do turn up many hits.

Isn't Yolo county CCW friendly? CCW friendly with an online ammo ban? Has to be some bad info, no?

Man, I wish Yolo was CCW friendly. It's not impossible to get a CCW here but it's currently being litigated:

I'm sure some people in and around UC Davis would like to ban online ammo, and CCWs, and guns, and Walmart but I don't think there is an official ban. Maybe some retailers won't ship but I haven't experienced that.
