    The OP is misleading.

    Online ammunition purchases have been banned in most of the state for years.

    The law taking effect July 1st requires those buying ammunition to show a driver’s license or other photo identification, and for the licensed seller to collect the buyer’s fingerprint, name, date of birth and current address.

    The seller then will make an instant check by computer to make sure the buyer is not listed on a Department of Justice database called the Prohibited Armed Persons File, which includes people who have been disqualified from possessing firearms because of criminal convictions or severe mental illness.

    Buyers will be charged a $1 fee for the background check.

    The biggest problem, besides the invasion of privacy, is the fact that the state of California does not have a reliable 'instant check' system in place.


    Personally, I have more than enough ammunition to last for the rest of my life.

    All California did is create a quasi-black market for ammo. Gun owners will simply bring back ammo when they travel out of state, or have friend/relatives ship them a case or two. This action will do nothing to reduce crime or lower gun violence. All it will do is make the law-abiding public jump through a few more hoops in order to exercise their God-given rights.

    Currently, there are no restrictions on the amount of ammunition purchased after passage the eligibility check.

    The law says the following, “Commencing July 1, 2019, a resident of California shall not bring or transport into the state any ammunition that he or she purchased or otherwise obtained from outside of this state unless he or she first has that ammunition delivered to a licensed ammunition vendor for delivery to that resident pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 30312.”

    First time violations will be infractions, after that its a misdemeanor.

    Crap!

    So, ammunition sales in California is like getting a License To Carry in Texas.

    Fingerprints, background check.

    Maybe California will add "qualification," "one day training," in the future?

    That's some serious hoops.
