Everyone was hpoing for a veto but he didnt do it. I believe it goes into effect in July 2010. All transactions have to be face-to-face, so no internet sales to Cal, also wording says dealer has to do it at his place of business, which seems to end ammo sales at gun shows, cause the gun show building isnt his permanent place of business. Brief summary:

"One of the bills that he signed was Assembly Bill 962. It would require handgun ammunition to be kept behind the counter where customers cannot access it without assistance. It would also require gun shop owners to thumbprint people who buy handgun ammunition, as well as record their identification and provide that information to police."

wanna buy a Southern Calif house cheap?

Wow, this sucks for California. Big time. There's a tendency for laws like that to creep out though once they become a norm in one area... If they did it there they can try it nearly anywhere.

Those people out there are going to go on ammo buying spree before the law takes effect. So more ammo is going to be bought not less.

Fingerprinting, giving information to police!? WTF!?

You couldn't pay me enough to live in that place!
Yup, I can see it now. Now all I need to finalize the sale is your fingerpint Mr Crip, Mr Blood or Mr MS 13.

Just another make them feel good law that will have little or no impact on crime reduction.

Every little mom and pop gas station, convenience store, etc. just over the Kali border in a free state should start selling ammo. They would sell a ton of it.

Now imagine the people that actually comply with the law. How many boxes of ammo is sold in Kali per day? The cops are gonna be swamped. Does the law actually require them to do anything with the info? I can see this stuff being filed in the trash due to lack of manpower and budget.

One more reason I'm grateful to have left California and moved to Texas.

Are taxpayers funding the thumbprint scanners to the gun shops? Doubt it. Can't afford one? Out of business. What about reloaders? What if there's no 'transaction?' What if I choose to give a Californian ammunition? Is that a crime too? Is there a use-by date on previously purchased ammunition?

And the most important question: W...T...F !?!?!?

After reading through the bill I fail to see any way in which the measures could aid law enforcement in an effective manner. This is nothing more than a measure to making buying ammunition more expensive and difficult. Just putting a little more pressure in the squeeze on California gun owners.
