The California Senate this week approved a collection of bills, including one (SB 53) that would require background checks, permits, and fees for the purchase of ammunition.

All ammunition sales would have to be face-to-face, happening only in the presence of a store clerk; and vendors selling the bullets would have to submit sales records to the California Department of Justice. Those vendors also would need a permit to sell ammunition.

SB 53 [2] is one of seven “gun violence” bills approved on Wednesday. Together, the seven Democrat-sponsored bills are known as the “Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement Act,” dubbed the LIFE Act.

California Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, a Democrat, said the LIFE act is designed to close “loopholes” in existing regulations, keep firearms and ammunition out of the hands of dangerous persons, and strengthen education on gun ownership.
