Yesterday, January 18th, California gun owners dodged a bullet: AB962, the new ammunition control law prohibiting, among other things, mail order ammunition deliveries, was enjoined from enforcement by a Federal judge. You can read about this decision in the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) press release.
But no one who follows California firearms politics thinks that this is the end of the story. First of all, the law is still on the books, and the lawsuit may still proceed to trial. Second, the state might appeal the decision, which the CRPA thinks is likely, attempting to have the injunction removed. And even if Ab962 is ultimately struck down by a Federal court, then the legislature can pass new legislation that corrects the “unconstitutionally vague” language by listing the prohibited ammunition explicitly.
If that does come to pass, even then we are not out of options. Other lawsuits that have bee dismissed, particularly OOIDA v. Lindley, which attacked provisions of AB962 that attempted to regulate common carriers, something that has already been found to by unconstitutional.
