California DOJ Issues Proposed Regulations for Ammunition Licensing
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -(Ammoland.com)- Today, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) posted new proposed regulations for ammunition vendor licensing that are required by Proposition 63 after they were actually due under the laws that were passed last year.
So far, Attorney General Xavier Becerra is following in the footsteps of his predecessor, now-Senator Kamala Harris, in failing to comply with the legal process or statutory deadlines.
“Of all the regulations that DOJ is supposed to create from the deluge of gun control legislation in 2016, these would appear to be among the most straightforward to accomplish,” said Craig J. DeLuz, spokesperson for the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC). “DOJ knew last year that these required regulations had a hard deadline so that businesses could begin applying for ammunition vendor licenses on July 1 of this year. There is no excuse for them being this late.”
FPC’s review of the new DOJ regulations is part of their ongoing “California DOJ Regulatory Watch Program”, which was established to hold the state accountable for their implementation of various anti-Second Amendment legislation.
