It is painfully fun to watch how liberals work. For instance, leftist lawmakers and others thought that by limiting ammo, since it was not limiting guns, the action was going to be legal in today’s backward thinking America. Thankfully, the words “shall not be Infringed” means something still, and liberals are up in arms about the right to bear arms once again.
According to Breitbart News, “the National Rifle Association is readying a lawsuit against California’s new ammunition controls.” The lawsuit is said to focus on “statutorily mandated” deadlines during the lead up to the implementation of these controls. As reported, on the first of the year, regulations “bar out-of-state ammunition purchases and require that all in-state purchases be made from a licensed dealer.”
That certainly sounds like infringement and that is a huge breach of the Constitution.
This action on behalf of the state keeps supply low and makes the cost of ammo very high. The problem is, among many others, is the fact that this leads to responsible gun owners getting in less practice, too.
Also, any ammunition purchased online must “be sent to a licensed in-state dealer.” Again, this is government meddling where it need not be and where it is forbidden by law from being. It is not the business of the government or anyone else how much firepower a gun owner has.
Starting on the first of next year, unless this hurtful practice is halted, “point-of-sale background checks for ammunition purchases” will be mandatory in 2019. This needless hurdle will come at a cost, too. Our rights are God-given, though, and do not come from government. Therefore, no one should have to pay any fees at all to own a gun any more than they do to speak freely.
The NRA lawsuit says, “The Office of Administrative Law (OAL) has approved the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) proposed ammunition vendor regulations after failing to meet the statutorily mandated deadline of July 1, 2017, and the effective date of January 1, 2018.”
The truth is that this is just another ploy by those opposed to gun ownership. The more power that government gets, the more that they want. When those forces have a leftist lean to them, soon it is like NAZI Germany and everyone is registering their guns. The reason that the Constitution does not talk about registering guns is that doing so can lead to the government taking them, as Russia’s Stalin did.
Then again, no one who really wants to own a gun is going to listen to Democrats when it comes to gun laws. Cleveland, Detroit, and most major cities in California are littered with both Democrat leadership and high crime brought along by the diminishing of gun rights.
The NRA is not going to allow that to happen further without a fight.
