If 2016 goes into the history books for anything, it’ll be as the year that Americans lost more of their 2nd Amendment freedoms than any before it. Between the sweeping gun control measures put into effect by Obama’s executive orders and the dozens of state legislated gun control laws passed around the country, there’s never been a worse time to be a gun owner. And now it looks like things could be about to get a lot worse for gun owners in one state in particular.

It probably comes as no surprise, but the state in question here is California. It’s arguably the most liberal state in the union, and the California leaders are on the forefront of the anti-gun crusade.

Now the state is set to have voters decide on whether or not its citizens will have to undergo a background check just to buy ammo! That’s right. Not only would you have to go through a rigorous application process in California just to purchase a gun, if this law is passed by voters, but you’d have to do the same for ammunition too.

Off the Grid News has more on the story:

Californians would be required to undergo a background check to buy ammunition if voters in the Golden State approve a sweeping gun-control ballot initiative this November.

The so-called Safety for All Act also would require gun owners to notify police when their weapon is lost or stolen, and would ban magazines larger than 10 rounds.

Around 365,880 signatures were needed to get the initiative on the Nov. 1 ballot, and supporters gathered 600,000. Democratic Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, formerly the mayor of San Francisco, is leading the effort. He believes the proposal will pass.

“I feel resolved to move forward. The voters I think are ahead of a lot of elected officials of all political stripes,” Newsom said, according to the Sacramento Bee. “We have a chance to do something that’s permanent, that can’t be watered down, and send a very potent and powerful message to the National Rifle Association that we think will resonate across the country.”

Significantly, all sellers of ammo would have to be licensed vendors if the initiative passes. Also under the proposal, owners of magazines larger than 10 rounds would not be grandfathered. Owners would have to turn the magazines over to the police, transfer them out of state, or sell them to a licensed dealer.

The California State Sheriffs’ Association opposes the proposal.

“California currently has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, yet gun violence caused by criminals, gang members, and those prohibited from purchasing guns such as the mentally ill continues,” a March letter from the association read. “… Unfortunately, this measure would do little to prevent the criminal element from acquiring guns and ammunition via the black market or through theft. Instead, it would place additional restrictions on law abiding citizens who wish to purchase ammunition for sporting or hunting use, retain guns and magazines that are currently legal for them to possess, and pass historical or family heirloom guns down to their next generation.”

The sheriffs’ association further argued that the measure “will create a new class of criminals out of those that already comply with common sense practices that now exist.”

“The focus of efforts to reduce gun violence in this state should be on those responsible for that violence, not those that have no intent to do harm,” the letter concluded.

Former Republican State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has been a vocal opponent.

“I am not going to call it anti-gun legislation,” Donnelly said. “What it is anti-freedom legislation because, essentially, people have figured out that the government can’t and won’t protect us.”

Are you shocked to hear of such an invasive new gun control measure? Do you think it could spread to other states if it passes in California?

  1. what a bunch of bull crap ! these do gooders need to be run hard and put up wet ! it will never pass if these californactors wake up and die right !

  2. What a bunch of BS,wake up people of California and vote those dictators out of office, they are trampling all over your rights given in the constitution of this country.

  3. Those of diminished mental capacity definitely need to be protected from themselves. They have
    lost all their mental capacity by even allowing such a criminal and insane law to even come up
    for a vote, but then what do you expect from the land of fruits and nuts with no social redeeming
    qualifications. The Hollywood elitist will all roll out with their armed guards to support such
    legislation since the crap they call movies needs protection. They make movies and TV shows
    that glorify murder, drugs, violence and mayhem then they how about how unsafe the culture
    they have spawned are and their moon beam fans just lap the crap up like candy.

  4. I’m 3rd generation Californian and grew up in the 50’s and 60’s. I’ve watched as my state has gone from great to the most liberal piece of crap around…. I walked home with my first shotgun under my arm from the sporting good shop, no one even looked at me twice. Now, because of LA and San (queer as can be) Fransisco, plus the ability to come across the border with impunity, the dumbest rats have become the rulers of the idiots. Sorry Brown, I’ll just pick up my ammo in the other states….oh, and another note to you Brown (very apt name for this turd). I’ve got way to many rounds of lead shotgun shells to count and your law prohibiting its use for upland game is not going to fly with me. I’ll be using it until I have no more “F” you brown.

  5. This shows that the people in California are not in touch with anything else in the world. Criminals DO NOT obey the law. (I think that’s why we call then criminals) I was born in California, and had a very good childhood there but I would not want to live in a state that tells you how to live. It truly has become the Granola State (the land run by the fruits, flakes and nuts). California is no longer a part of the land of the free, it is becoming a Communist state. This is sad.

  6. I left California in ’99 after a virtual lifetime there never to return except to visit my kids who are stuck there with their jobs, homes, etc. I worry about them every day living in that socialist commie land. I’m sure when their retirement years arrive they’ll get out to get their freedoms back as did I. My grandson is a budding 13 yr old shotgun whiz who’ll need to get out to pursue competitions, I’m sure my Daughter and his Dad have thoughts on tap to move out of California so their son can pursue his efforts as he’s just that good. California a once wonderful place is now just a big Democrat stinkhole with idiot voters on the waterfront left coast who keep voting nothing but progressive bums back in while coming across the Nevada border to buy ammo, AR magazines, et al. What pain in the ass hypocrites, they’re a nuisance as far as we’re concerned and wish they’d stay home in California to live with what they voted for. Idiots !

    • So your a Californian that left California to move to Nevada and you call us a nuisance going there to buy our ammo?? Go PHUCK HOURSELF!!!!

      • Reply to Shecky: Thank you for your response but like Paul Harvey used to say was a commentary on “the rest of the story”. I left California in 1999 and went to Wyoming to care for my elderly parents. I lost them both in the same year, my mother died in my arms from a cardiac arrest, and my father succumbing after a nine year battle with leukemia at age 85, she was 78. I stuck things out until 2007 after losing my left arm April of 2003 in an auto accident Eastbound from Sacramento to Cheyenne, WY on I-80, I was age 59 at the time I’m now 72. OK ? I relocated to Nevada in 2007 because the Wyoming winters were too hard to bear for me even though I was born and raised in Southwestern Wyoming where winters were even more severe than Cheyenne. I resettled in Las Vegas, NV without reservation of returning to California which has become Socialist Republic thanks to the bastard Democrats who have all the legislative power with equal thanks to the idiot voters who keep reelecting these bums. So, after a myriad of anti-gun laws passed by anti second amendment boobs, California voters seek solace in going Arizona or Nevada to re-arm themselves despite the laws passed by their voted in anti-gun legislators. It is now thus that Californians who got what they voted for, are a pain in the ass to other state retailers while seeking refuge from laws passed by the same people they voted for. So Shecky, you in turn can go phuck yourself taking your stupidity with you. Amen, you bastard !

  7. The problem with all of the restrictions being placed upon citizens being armed is all restrictions are infringements on the Second Amendment . ” A well regulated Militia , being necessary to the security of a free State , the right of the people to keep and bear Arms , shall not be infringed . ” So all gun restriction laws are unconstitutional therefore illegal laws .

    • In NY the second amendment is somehow reinterpreted into:
      Dominant law enforcement capabilities, necessary for the security of the progressive state, the right of law enforcement officials, active and retired, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

      (All other citizens must comply with state gun control mandates under penalty of felony prosecution.)

  8. I think it is time to start a California Militia for the defense of Citizens Rights. That way California Gun Owners can band together just like patriots did at Lexington and Concord when the alarm goes off The Dems are comng!!! The Dems are coming!!! oh I mean Britsh are coming!

  9. The whole problem is, a great number of registered voters don’t seem to want to take the time or effort to exercise their God-given right to go out and vote one way or another. They don’t want to use the right that God bestowed on them through the Constitution.

  10. The whole problem is, a great number of registered voters CAN’T TAKE the time to TAKE a few minutes and exercise their GOD-GIVEN right to vote on this or any other question. It seems that they THINK that they CAN’T waste their God-GIVEN time to vote on a question that would help to lose one of their GOD-GIVEN rights through the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

  11. It’s not up to the people the government will pass this even if they all vote against it its a shame what this country has become I bet you all law enforcement agencies and government agencies have high capacity magazines every one in this state should move relocate Jesus will be here soon the fact that you have more ammo and fire power and fema camps or martial law won’t make a difference he will setup his own government

  12. Surely the states voters,won’t follow”suit”of those signatures..MY educated guess,,A lot of money was spent BUYING SIGNATURES !!

  13. What do you expect…This is Mexofornia…More than likely the “signatures” were mostly ILLEGAL Aliens that don’t want to be shot While committing their crimes in their “sanctuary cities”.

  14. Putting your citizens at more and more risk. the bad guys will still get ammo. it’s the citizens that are losing out. I’s really just another way to get more money. You know it will cost money and it’s going to take a lot of manpower to run a check just to get bullets. the backlog will be crazy!

  15. If I lived in Kommi-fornicate (which thankfully I do not and have no plans to) I would be stocking up on ammunition.

  16. I have lived in CA for over 30 years now and have seen it go steadily downhill in many ways. I’ll be moving to Nevada in a few years and taking my money with me! (And yes, I have already stocked up on ammo)

  17. Unfortunately, I continue to live in Kalifornia. I can’t afford to move, plus there’s all my family here – kids, grandkids, and now a great granddaughter. Not everybody in Kalifornia is brain dead, just those that live in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Actually, most of the Bay Area is brain dead.
    You can tell how bad this state has gotten by the election of the likes of Brown and Newsom.
    This state went to hell shortly after Chief Justice Earl Warren screwed over the voting rights of rural Californians.
    I weep for my state. It’s broken and thanks to the brain dead liberals and the illegal aliens, it’s not likely to ever get better.

  18. I agree with Darrell, our once great state has slid so far away from the real world we’re in a box with no way out. The California I grew up in (circa 1941) was much different than the state is today. I only hope I live long enough to see it return to great place it once was. MOLON LOBE!

  19. Arizona must be the last frontier. We don’t have a lot of riots and crap happening here. Just knowing we can carry keeps a lot of crime down. The peeps know we’re better prepared than they are. I only know a few people who don’t carry. Their loss.

  20. Well what the hell – this all sounds crazy to ya huh? Hey, the “Safety for All Act” – Andy Cuomo – The progressive socialist governor of NY Must’ve Faxed a copy of “The NY Safe Act” over to the west coast! When all is said and done I wonder how similar this will be.

    IT’S ALL A DONE DEAL IN NY!

    They even limited us to seven rounds – YEA SEVEN – gun manufacturers said they wouldn’t make special NY compliant magazines – so we were decreed to not load more than 7 rounds in our 10 round magazines – UNDER PENALTY OF FELONY PROSECUTION – Courts ruled that part of the law arbitrary, so now we can load 10. Don’t fear though – the new craze – SINGLE STACK 9’s – A socialist politicians gun control dream!
    Glock 42 – 43 – citizen firearms – low capacity – WILL NOT ACCEPT HIGH CAPACITY SERVICE MAGS!
    Glock 17 – 19 – 26 – LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY! (You get the picture)
    The writing is on the wall.

    Oh – and I’m SURE that like in NY – Active and retired law enforcement officials will be exempt from all CA gun control restrictions!

    10th Amendment:
    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, NOR PROHIBITED BY IT TO THE STATES, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

    The day WILL come when we will have to FORCE progressive socialist politicians to understand – THEY ARE BOUND TO WORK WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS OF THE CONSTITUTION!
    They will take ALL that we allow them to – and they will NEVER stop.

  21. PS – NY safe act mandates background checks for all ammunition purchases – every purchase must record – caliber, number of rounds purchased, and they wanna know your ?occupation? – (If you’re a cop you’re OK?)
    Yea, they’re counting our bullets! This guy just bought 1,0000 rounds! MUST BE A TERRORIST! – NO ONE NEEDS 1,000 ROUNDS TO KILL A DEER! (NY joke – NY governor Cuomo speaking about limiting citizens to 7 rounds, “NO ONE NEEDS 10 BULLETS TO KILL A DEER!”)
    HA – The system was never implemented though – NY State was planning on using the federal NICS database to do the checks for ammo purchases – AND THE FEDS SAID NO! ha-ha
    But the laughs on us at the end – All ammo purchases must be face to face, which only means NO INTERNET ORDERS! (Unless shipped to an FFL)
    Scumbags

  22. If the people of caliporkya pass this debauchery and they are stupid enough to do so, ammunitions
    manufacturers will class action this stool worthy proposition on the basis of infringement. Odds
    are better than good this proposition if passed gets struck down. As far as the greater than 10
    rd clip? Good luck on enforcement of that joke as there are millions of them in caliporkya alone.
    I guess there will be a million or greater law abiding citizen gun owners who will over night
    become instant criminals cause not one will turn them over. Maybe the cartel gang bangers
    will.

  23. If I was an ammo/gun manufacturer I would move my company from their and refuse to sell anymore to the state. That includes LE also (unfortunately)
