SACRAMENTO (CBS13) The state’s gun control laws could soon include a $50 fee and a background check to buy bullets.
Sen. Kevin deLeon (D-Los Angeles) wrote the bill requiring the fee, along with background checks by the California Department of Justice that would prohibit sales of ammunition to felons and the mentally ill.
“Today you can walk out of San Quentin Prison, you can walk out of Chino, you can walk out of L.A. Central County Jail, and you can buy all the ammunition you want—no questions asked,” he said.
It’s all part of a package of seven gun-control bills passed by the state senate this week. The move follows the Sandy Hook massacre, where 20 children and six teachers were killed.
Congress failed to pass new laws on gun control, but it appears California is now on its way.
