The NRA Supports Ammunition Depot and the CRPA in Standing Up For Second Amendment Rights
Ammunition Depot is proud to be able to stand up for American's Second Amendment rights. We were founded by freedom loving Americans who know two things (1) it is every American’s right and responsibility to defend themselves, their family, and their country; and (2) without ammunition, none of that is possible. The same is true with respect to our ability to exercise our Second Amendment rights. Without access to ammunition, our guns are just expensive paperweights.
We made a promise to the American people to provide them with access to high-quality ammunition at the lowest possible price with the best customer service they have ever experienced. We refuse to sit on the sidelines while American's rights continue to be assaulted. California has decided that, among many other restrictions to the liberty of its citizens, residents of the state of California should not be permitted to order ammunition online and have it delivered to them. Instead, every time a resident of the state of California wants to buy even 20 rounds of ammo, they have to drive to their local gun store. If the ammo is shipped from out of state they must pay a potentially large transfer fee and, starting in 2019, submit to a costly background check.
We have all seen the advantages in convenience, selection, price, and service that have come with the ability to shop and purchase online and we at Ammunition Depot don't see any good reason that ammo should be any different.
That is why the NRA is supporting us as we join the CRPA in filing an important lawsuit challenging California’s restrictions regarding the sale or transfer of ammunition. The lawsuit, titled Rhode et al v. Becerra (AKA Ammunition Depot et al v. Becerra), challenges California’s new ammunition sales restrictions as a violation of the Second Amendment and Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.
The filing of Rhode et al marks the fourth lawsuit filed by NRA and CRPA attorneys challenging the provisions of Proposition 63 and the other “Gunmageddon” bills. One such lawsuit, titled Duncan v. Becerra, has already succeeded in obtaining an important injunction against Proposition 63’s ban on the possession of magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds. The other two lawsuits, titled Rupp v. Becerra and Villanueva v. Becerra (both of which challenge California’s “assault weapon” restrictions and registration requirements), are also seeking injunctions while those lawsuits are pending.
