LA bans certain types of Ammunition

Terms such as "military-style" just seem to be the all purpose term to demonize gun related items, and the media repeats these claims just as they are willing to call so many guns assault weapons. This piece from the LA Times.

The Los Angeles City Council approved a package of gun control laws Wednesday, placing new requirements on ammunition sellers and banning the sale of military-style ammunition in the hopes of further reducing the city's gun and gang violence.

The measures ban the sale of .50-caliber ammunition, capable of penetrating a car's engine, and would require the city's ammunition vendors to be licensed, to sell ammunition face-to-face instead of over the Internet and require gun dealers to report a full accounting of their inventory twice a year to the Police Department. . . .

I have news for them: Almost any high power rifle will penetrate an engine, then again, how many gang bangers do you see walking down the street with a Barrett in .50 BMG? None I would imagine. More non-sense to show good intentions to the nanny-stater weenies on the left coast.

Since the military only uses FMJ ammo, does that mean everybody will have to carry hollow points?

Welcome to Californication. Please leave all ammo, weapons, rights, and your personal saftey at the border.

Have a pleasant visit.
