Ammunition sales and transfers in California will soon be subject to a complex and convoluted background check procedure beginning July 1, 2019, as a result of Proposition 63 and Senate Bill No. 1235.  But before that can happen, the California Department of Justice (“DOJ”) must propose all of the necessary regulations to ensure gun owners and ammunition retailers have clear, adequate guidelines when transferring ammunition.  Recently, DOJ introduced what is believed to be the first in a series of proposed regulations on that issue.   On Thursday, January 31, attorneys for NRA and CRPA submitted a comprehensive letter in opposition to DOJ’s proposed language.

Governor Kristi Noem’s Weekly Column: Protecting Our Way of Life

Mon, 02/04/2019 - 12:02
I grew up in a family that always had a shotgun in the pickup; our vacations were spent hunting in the mountains. Even at an early age, I understood the way guns fundamentally made us more safe, secure, and free. Bryon and I have instilled those values in our kids too. See, in South Dakota, the right to bear arms isn’t just an abstract right. It’s our way of life.

Gun ownership surveys routinely find that about 1 in 3 American adults personally own firearms, meaning that tens of millions of law-abiding citizens regularly choose to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
