A federal judge on Thursday ordered the repeal of a California law requiring a background check on all ammunition purchases. Approving the order, the judge said that the law imposes an undue burden on the plaintiffs by violating their Second Amendment right.
The Safety for All Act forces people to buy ammunition exclusively from licensed dealers and face to face. If they want to buy firearms or ammunition, they have to pay a background check every time they want to buy. The law makes it illegal to buy firearms from vendors outside of California unless the seller ships to licensed California vendors and then the person makes the purchase in person after a background check. ۔
Overall, the judge found that California sees the Second Amendment as a vacuum that must be closed, and that it places an undue burden on law-abiding citizens who want to buy firearms and ammunition.
