Needles is a town of about 5,000 that borders Arizona and is a few miles from the southern tip of Nevada. Last month, the City Council voted unanimously to declare itself a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary City,” for people who feel California’s strict gun laws tread on their constitutional right to bear arms.
Most Needles residents buy their ammunition in neighboring Arizona because the nearest California stores are more than 100 miles away. City leaders want residents to be able to continue purchasing in neighboring states.

I don't see how there's even the remote possibility that California can know, track or trace, an out of state purchase of ammo being brought into the state via other means besides USPS or other carriers.
The state lines are extremely porous as they should be.
Once it is in the state, POOF...
Criminals will have it easier than those that are law abiding.....as usual. They have no hoops to jump through, nor are they beholden to wait periods.
That puts the advantage into the hands of criminals and puts law abiding citizens at risk.
But whatever, right California???
It FEELS like the right thing to do so screw everyone and everything else.
