(Sacramento Bee) A bill to regulate the sale of ammunition in California cleared the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday.

Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, said Assembly Bill 48 adds “reasonable safeguards” to the purchase of ammunition by requiring sellers to be licensed and purchasers to show identification.

The Department of Justice would be required to notify local law enforcement of large-quantity purchases of more than 3,000 rounds that are made within a five-day period by someone who is not a police officer.
