Ironically, California has every gun control pushed in the wake of the February 14 attack on Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. These controls include an “assault weapons” ban, universal background checks, firearm confiscation laws (Gun Violence Restraining Orders), firearm registration requirements, firearm owner safety certification requirements, a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases, and “good cause” limitations on the issuance of concealed carry licenses.
California also has ammunition controls which require state residents to buy ammunition from state-approved vendors and bar residents from buying ammo out-of-state.
