Ammunition Registration Proposal Withdrawn

Ammunition Registration Proposal Withdrawn in Long Beach!
Thank You for Standing-Up and Making Your Voices Heard!



Due to overwhelming opposition from the pro-gun community, the Long Beach City Council decided not to draft an ordinance that would have required ammunition retailers in Long Beach to register ammunition purchasers.

Congress has tried ammunition registration in the past, only to discover that it was not only ineffective for law enforcement, but also completely unmanageable due to the sheer volume of transactions. Ammunition registration creates huge record keeping requirements and provides no useful benefits for law enforcement; which is why it was repealed at the federal level by the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986.

Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in opposition to this attack on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Without you, this victory would not have been possible.

While this is certainly a notable win, anti-gun forces are sure to try once again. Please continue checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates on this issue.
