Zachary Berg usually buys guns and ammunition with relative ease. After all, he’s a Sutter County sheriff’s deputy and needs them for his job. California’s stringent gun laws usually don’t apply to him.
But Berg couldn’t buy shotgun shells at his local hardware store in Yuba City prior to a duck hunting trip last month. He was rejected under [California’s stringent ammunition background check program that took effect July because his personal information didn’t match what state officials had in their database.
CA knows they just can’t outlaw and confiscate guns, so starving off the ammo supply is the next best thing.
