Several new gun laws take effect in California on January 1st. If you buy ammunition online, you can no longer have it shipped to your house. It must be shipped to a licensed vendor. You must pick it up at the local vendor, then show identification. Your information will not be saved.
You can also no longer buy ammunition out of state and bring it into California. One exemption? If you're a hunter, you can bring back 50 rounds.
Also, January 1st, felons or those convicted of so-called violent misdemeanors must provide proof they turned in their firearms within a certain time frame.
And gun dealers must get a DOJ Certificate of Eligibility for employees who handle ammunition, to prove they've passed a background check.
