Judge tosses California law requiring background checks for ammunition

A federal judge blocked background checks for ammunition buyers in California, calling the state’s law on the matter ’onerous and convoluted’ that violates the constitutional right to bear arms. District Judge Roger Benitez said while ruling in favor of California Rifle and Pistol Association that the checks hurt legal buyers while doing little to prevent criminals from obtaining firepower.

A thimbleful of water bailed out of the Titanic that is the sinking failed State of California, with such an obvious ruling that a 3rd rate Circuit Court judge could have knocked this one out in an Afternoon while doing a line with Former President G.W. Bush in thier back chambers.

Don't worry, you can barely buy a useful firearm, but at least ammo is easy to get!

As stated "Criminals, tyrants, and terrorists don't do background checks," That is exactly why the private sales of guns and ammunition should be outlawed, and made a class A Felony, that would include mandatory time behind bars.

If you came to this app looking for objective and balanced news, Free of manipulation and Political trolling. You've made a mistake. What you can expect here is for MAGA DEPLORABLES to use Russia Today's rt.com to twist news stories to their advantage, in order to whitewash criminal incompetence and negligence of the Republican party and its leadership. You can expect to be berated and insulted every step of the way when you participate in this app, Sometimes just for the LOLS of the deployable trolls like Avi(MODERATOR). Weather by writing Summaries or just by making profane comments - They will pursue and follow your every comment and harass you until you abandon this platform to these deplorables. And don't even think about expecting any kind of objective intervention from the moderators or administrators. This platform is financially floundering and they obviously don't have enough finances or personnel to properly administer and CURATE THE CONTENT. Viktor, the owner, likely intends to eventually sell this entire NEWSVOICE platform to An Interested Party likely China-CCP, Iran or RUSSIA. Who knows maybe Russia Today or Sputnik Will be interested in broadening their Mass Media Platform assortment... To improve their efforts in spreading political disinformation.

When the government gets done destroying the economy, ammunition will make for a very good currency replacement for the dollar.

Even I think this law is bullshit. Like how dumb is that. Needing a background check for ammunition. Even though I'm sure I could find a homie with a loaded gun down a back ally in LA

The checks should be there, so criminals can't just walk into a store and buy guns off the shelf. But they shouldn't be so convoluted that regular people are tempted to buy illegally. When someone buys a gun they should have to provide ID so the gun and ammunition is registered to them. This would be useful information to the police who would have a note pop up if they pull the person over or have to respond to their property, that there may be a firearm to look out for. Like when a conceal carrier informs the officer they have a gun, so they aren't surprised by it. Additionally it means they can keep track of what kinds of guns are out there, if a crime is committed with a Luger and there's only one registered owner in the area, they can go ask him about it. If someone's rifle gets stolen, they know there's possibly a criminal in the area with a new rifle to look out for. Then if they find it (and the serial number is still on it) they can return it to its rightful owner. Just like a car.

Because making it easy for a person who illegally purchased a firearm is heroism to people. When you see a proposal through "us vs them" eyes you really lose sight of the point of a legislature. If you want "the good people" armed, you have to plan for the "bad people".

gun safety advocate here who lives in California and thinks people buy too many guns; good decision. I remember a comedian making a joke that we should make bullets expensive, "man I would shoot you right now......if I could afford it" but I didn't think we would actually kinda try to do it.
