Assemblyman Hagman's bill will take back the rights of gun owners in California
Sacramento'Assemblyman Curt Hagman has introduced AB 613 to repeal of AB 962 by Assemblyman De Leon, which has been found to be unconstitutionally vague by a Fresno County Superior Court in Parker vs. California early this year.
AB 962 requires individuals purchasing ammunition be fingerprinted and registered at the time of sale, mandates that dealers keep these records and make them available for inspection by the California Department of Justice.
Ammunition retailers would also have to store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers and mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.
"The laundry list of new requirements in Assembly Bill 962 treats law abiding citizens like criminals. The only people this bill will affect are law abiding gun owners," stated Assemblyman Hagman, "My bill will ensure that California's gun owners are not punished by this excessive regulation from Sacramento."
