    IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
    1. Defendant Attorney General Xavier Becerra, and his officers, agents,
    servants, employees, and attorneys, and those persons in active concert or
    participation with him, and those duly sworn state peace officers and
    federal law enforcement officers who gain knowledge of this injunction
    order or know of the existence of this injunction order, are enjoined from
    implementing or enforcing the ammunition sales background check
    provisions found in California Penal Code §§ 30370(a) through (d) and
    30352, and the ammunition anti-importation provisions found in
    §§ 30312(a) and (b), and 30314(a) as well as the criminal enforcement of
    California Penal Code §§ 30365, 30312(d) and 30314(c).
    2. Defendant Attorney General Xavier Becerra shall provide forthwith, by
    personal service or otherwise, actual notice of this order to all law
    enforcement personnel who are responsible for implementing or enforcing
    the enjoined statute. Within 10 days, the government shall file a
    declaration establishing proof of such notice. Alternatively, the parties
    may file a stipulation.
    IT IS SO ORDERED.
    DATED: April 23, 2020

    TL;DR : basically says the background check for ammo purchase is now null and void.

    Yes, I saw that. Same judge that struck down the magazine size, I think. It will be interesting to see if it sticks.

    Indiana doesn't do that as far as I know. I got a screaming deal years ago so I haven't bought ammunition for a while. I know co-workers that live in Illinois have to show their FOID card if they buy bullets here.

    This was specifically for ammunition purchases. You needed to get a background check just to purchase. California was squeezing the life out of the 2A and the people's ability to protect themselves.

    That was some of the worst legalese I have read in a while.
    Good stuff though. I do favor background checks for firearms but, who cares about ammo.

    But you realize we were talking about California, right?

    If not made extremely prohibitive and used as tool to stifle gun ownership.

    I was comparing it to Indiana which is fairly liberal about firearms and Illinois that used to be more restrictive than California. When it gets tothe Federal level, one state will follow another.
