Federal Judge Blocks Calif. Ammo Law

SAN DIEGO - A federal judge Thursday blocked background checks for ammunition buyers in California, calling the state's law on the matter "onerous and convoluted."
San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez granted a preliminary injunction against the rule after plaintiffs, including the California Rifle and Pistol Association and six-time Olympic medalist skeet shooter Kim Rhode, sued the state.
In 2016, Golden State voters approved Proposition 63, which included the background checks as well as a ban on high-capacity magazines for firearms. The same judge halted sales of the magazines as the state appeals another court challenge.
But in this case, Benitez was unequivocal.
