CA Ammo Registration Bill Update II

For those who claim that the "magazines, etc" clause only relates to possession by prohibited persons, I present you this:

12317. (a) Any person, corporation, or firm who supplies,delivers, sells, or gives possession or control of, any ammunition to any person who he or she knows or using reasonable care should know is prohibited from owning, possessing, or having under his or her custody or control, any ammunition or reloaded ammunition pursuant to paragraph (1) or (4) of subdivision (b) of Section 12316, is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment.

The same definition of "Ammunition" is used.

Which company is going to be the first to test the ‘reasonable care’ clause in court? Which ones are going to risk discrimination lawsuits by refusing mailing to certain people?

While this may not be a Dejure ban, it certainly will be Defacto.

Frankly, if I were Cabela's, Brownell's, etc. I would spite them...

I'd drive to the California border with an 18 wheeler filled with ammo and a back-hoe. Then drop it over the border.

Make an announcement "Free Ammo". Frankly, the advertisement it'd get whichever company did such would be more than cover the loss of giving away the ammo.
