TSA Finds Record Number Of Guns Carried By Travelers At Airports
Many travelers heading to U.S. airports are apparently unaware that it’s illegal to carry a firearm through carry-on baggage security checkpoints.
The Transportation Security Administration announced Thursday that it found 4,239 firearms in carry-on bags last year — the largest number in the agency’s history.
That’s a 7% increase over the 3,957 firearms TSA discovered in 2017, and it means an average of about 12 firearms were found each day in 2018.
New Restrictions on Ammunition Sales to Take Effect in California
New restrictions will go into effect next month regarding buying, selling and transporting ammunition in California.
A law enacted in 2016 has several provisions related to the purchase of ammunition that will take effect on Jan. 1, 2018.
Proposition 63 requires anyone selling ammunition to have a license from the Department of Justice. Ammunition purchased over the internet must go through a licensed ammunition vendor.
California gun owners brace for shortages, price hikes under new ammo regs
Matt Ball isn’t the type of gun enthusiast who hoards ammunition – at least not normally.
Ball, a 39-year-old banker from Roseville, is a casual shooter who spends a few days a year at the target range. Typically, when he’s running low on ammo, he swings by a local sporting-goods store and buys what he needs, or he orders online.
But like thousands of other hunters and target shooters in California, Ball has been stocking up in advance of a host of new state gun laws, set to take effect this year and next, that include ammunition regulations that are among the most stringent in the nation.
“I’ve definitely been picking up a little more than I typically would,” Ball said. “I do worry about – not so much about supply but prices. The fact California has these extra rules in place, what’s that going to be like?”
