California and Ammo purchases..

Looks like California has a new law requiring a signature and thumb print in order to purchase handgun ammo.

Did this actually get signed into law?

Re: California and Ammo purchases..

What does this law do for internet sales? Are CA residents not allowed to mail order ammo? That article just references sales in CA stores.

The law doesn't specify, but online sales inherently couldn't comply with the requirements (thumbprint, etc). It's a de facto online sales ban, which might be the strongest challenge available to them.

It includes a specific ban on internet/mail-order sales.

But it also probably violates a number of federal statutes, and the lawsuits are already lined up at the courthouse.

Hm. I read it didn't. Well maybe that'll help the challengers then.
