Prop. 63 Tightens Rules On Guns, Ammo, Increases Penalty For Gun Theft

by Tony Lopez | CBS Sacramento  |  Published on October 28, 2016

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Proposition 63 is known as the “Firearms, Ammunition Sales Initiative Statute.”

It would require individuals who wish to purchase ammunition to first obtain a 4-year permit from the California Department of Justice.

It would also require gun dealers to ask to see that permit before selling any ammunition.

In addition, Prop. 63 would increase the penalty for anyone possessing large-capacity magazines.

The proposition would also make it a felony if anyone steals a gun valued at less than $950—right now, that’s considered a misdemeanor.

How much could it cost the state to keep track of ammunition sales?

Anita Lee from the non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office tells CBS13, “It could increase costs in the millions of dollars depending on how it was implemented–those costs will generally be off-set by fees that are authorized by the measure.”
