California Court Rules Ammunition Ban AB962 Unconstitutional

In a dramatic ruling giving gun owners a win in an National Rifle Association / California Rifle and Pistol (CRPA) Foundation lawsuit, this morning Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Hamilton ruled that AB 962, the hotly contested statute that would have banned mail order ammunition sales and required all purchases of so called “handgun ammunition” to be registered, was unconstitutionally vague on its face. The Court enjoined enforcement of the statute, so mail order ammunition sales to California can continue unabated, and ammunition sales need not be registered under the law.

More news other than what I found over at Cheaper Than Dirt is scarcer than hen's teeth, but the above appears to be correct. Usually, the NRA is all over this and notifying anyone who'll pay attention, but the last contact I received from them was one of their wine-selling emails. 

Good news out of California is hard to come by. I still think anyone wanting to call himself an American should move to somewhere free.

The stunning new here is that it was a California court ruling.

Uh huh. It's why I tried to confirm. Just doesn't sound...decent for the land of fruits & nuts to have anyone in power defending the Constitution.

Isn't it time for the whole shebang to fall off into the Pacific?
