Sound to me like it's working exactly as they intended that it would. And I agree with your summation of why...My experience....
I recently tried to purchase ammunition at Turner's and was "Deny/Reject" during the Standard Ammunition Eligibility Check." Went to the CFARS website and provided my DROS# and was given the following explanation... "You have been rejected for one of the following reasons: 1) you do not have a AFS record or 2) the information you provided to the ammunition vendor does not match the AFS record that is on file. Information on what establishes an AFS record or how to update an existing AFS record can be found at CFARS Home." From there I paid a $19 fee to fill out a "Firearm Ownership Report". I did so because the clerk told me that gun ownership records only go back five (5) years. The shotgun in my name was purchased in 2002. Then I accessed the "Automated Firearms System (AFS) Personal Information Update." I proceeded to update my personal information as well as details asked about my firearm. I even provided a scan of my original receipt from Turners as proof of accuracy of information provided. Now today, I received an email from the Reporting and Quality Assurance Section (Bureau of Firearms... For: Attorney General Xavier Becerra) that stated, "The identifying personal and/or firearm information you provided could not be "matched" with records within the Department's Automated Firearms System. As a result, your personal information HAS NOT been updated." I replied to the latest email and asked to help me understand (and rectify) the discrepancy with my updated information and why it could not be "matched" with the records within the Department's Automated Firearms System. How do I "match" their records? I don't know what they have for me??? As of now, I am an X-Peace Officer who had to pass an extensive background check, and now I can't even buy ammunition in California! I feel like I'm getting the run-a-round. I called the phone number provided for assistance, but good luck navigating the menus and talking to a real person!! I can't help but think this is AG Becerra's (known for anti-gun policies) agenda. Make the process of purchasing ammunition as difficult as possible!!! Or he hopes I simply give up on the process. Or that I have to retain a lawyer to help me this this insane new law. And that is out of the question!!! Anyway, I did stock up on ammunition before this horrible law went into effect so I'm good on supplies for this years hunting season. I was afraid this would happen and it would be a long drawn out process to buy ammunition in California again. Sucks!!! I will update as i venture through this journey.
Any other experiences people can share that might help other people.
I could be mistaken but i don't think out-of-state res can't buyAccording to the "liberal" / anti-2A politicians, you have the right to a firearm but not the ammunition.
What do out-of-state residents have to do to purchase ammunition in CA ??
And to prove how inept the politicians in CA are; the "real-ID" requirements are identical to those needed for a commercial driver's license (federally compliant); however, they did not acknowledge that point in the language of the law. So, many CDL holders have been paying for a new driver's license. One DMV clerk told me that CDL's would receive a "real-ID" at the time of their license renewal. ( oh, sure... )
Well Buddy. I've been a resident in this state for 70+ yrs. (whole life) and was just refused an ammo purchase because I didn't have my birth certificate along with my Ca. drivers license. This was after a 25 min. wait for the ammo sales person at the local wal mart.This is Classic an Out of State Resident canBuy Hunting license , . But not ammo to hunt with ????
This is a BackDOOR Approach to Limiting if not Eliminating HUNTING in this F---ed UP State........
You Watch when Hunting License Sales are DOWN and Revenue is Impacted Here Comes the LICENSE Fee I N C R E A S E
