FOX 40 SACRAMENTO— Bay-Area lawmakers proposed a new bill this week that would require gun vendors to report anyone who buys 1,000 rounds of ammunition within a five-day span.
AB-2512 would give vendors 24-hours to report the name and address of anyone who purchased 1000-rounds.
“A good person comes in, who enjoys shooting, you’re putting them now as being acriminal. They haven’t done anything wrong,” said James Deaser, owner of Just Guns in Sacramento.
The legislation proposal comes in light of last month’s shooting in Aurora, Colo. The shooter was able to buy 6,000 rounds of ammunition without raising a red flag.
“While incidents like Aurora may be rare, gun violence is an ongoing, yet unnecessary threat in communities across California,” said co-author of the bill, Assembly member Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley).
“The guy could have gone into the building and blew it up with fertilizer, so are we going to be ban fertilizer?” asks Deaser. “Just because you buy 1,000 rounds of ammo, doesn’t mean you’re a bad guy.”
One thousand rounds of ammo can be used for hunting, sport and practicing. As it stands now, the state of California does not require any tracked or reporting of large quantity ammunition transactions.
