Tomorrow, January 31 is the deadline to provide comments on the proposed ammunition regulations submitted by the California Department of Justice (DOJ). The proposed regulations are a direct result of the enactment of both Proposition 63 and Senate Bill No. 1235 in 2016. The proposed regulations were released on December 14, 2018 and are the first in what is expected to be a series of regulatory proposals regarding the mandatory background check process when purchasing ammunition, scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2019.
We encourage our Members, Second Amendment supporters, and Sportsmen to participate in the regulatory process by submitting comments on the proposal. Both oral and written comments can be submitted at the public hearing listed below:
