Yes but they haven't decided yet if components will be regulated or not.

That's okay with me. I've been to Kalifornia twice, did what
I wanted to do, saw what I wanted to see and I ain't goin' back. YMMV?

California isn't alone in this. New Jersey just outrights outlaws hollowpoints. In Massachusetts possession of a single brass case can get you 2 years in the pokey.

Two more places that I've been to and don't expect to ever return.

Ammunition is completely banned in MA? Or only brass cases. ;-)

Not completely banned if you get the right government permit. Primers, bullets, and brass components are considered ammunition as well as the completed cartridge. Being unlicensed and in possession of an empty mag is also a criminal offense.

I was stationed in California twice, each time for five years. We traveled back and forth many times. We would stop at the checkpoints, they'd ask if we had any fruits or vegetables, and we'd truthfully say no. However, what stops someone from lying? Same goes for ammo. They cannot search every car, now can they?

EDITED TO ADD:

I went back and read what I had written and want to clarify one thing. I am NOT advocating breaking any laws. I am pointing out the uselessness of that law, how easily it will undoubtedly be broken, and how it will do nothing to stop ammunition from getting into California. Like the overwhelming majority of gun control laws, it only penalizes the law abiding.

How does this law affect the residents of other states who travel into California with a firearm? Can they bring their usual carry ammo with them for “personal use”?

Makes you wonder what a good "cleansing" would do for those states.

I don't know but things like me this is why we desperately need the reciprocity bill passed soon.

Well let's just say it'd resemble preparation for a colonoscopy and would have to start in Sacramento. :shock:
