Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today signed into law a bill that requires buyers of handgun ammunition to leave thumbprints and detailed personal information with registered ammo sellers, as well as put restrictions on online bullet sales.
“Assembly Bill 962 reasonably regulates access to ammunition and improves public safety without placing undue burdens on consumers,” Schwarzenegger said in a letter explaining his decision.
The new restrictions will take effect Feb. 1, 2011.

I think the US is actually protected from gun bans, not due to rights but due to profits.
The US has a huge military industrial complex, and these companies have lobbies. These people make a lot of money from citizen buyers, buying their new rifles, magazines, hand guns, ammunition, accessories.
And at this moment their business' are absolutely booming. They can't keep guns or ammunition supplied.
One of the few times we benefit from corruption.

I would THINK that California has much bigger problems than ammunition.
Soon, you can load up your car with pistol ammo, drive to California, and make really good money.
