Judge blocks California law requiring background checks to buy ammo

A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law requiring background checks for people buying ammunition, issuing a sharply worded rebuke of “onerous and convoluted” regulations that violate the constitutional right to bear arms.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego ruled in favor of the California Rifle & Pistol Association, which asked him to stop the checks and related restrictions on ammo sales.

“The experiment has been tried. The casualties have been counted. California’s new ammunition background check law misfires and the Second Amendment rights of California citizens have been gravely injured,” Benitez wrote in a 120-page opinion granting the group's motion for a preliminary injunction.

This is one reason that anyone that hunts or shoots should belong to the California Rifle and Pistol Assn. I won't go into how screwed up the NRA is right now but CRPS is working for the sportsmen and women of California so join, numbers count
