Widener’s Reloading and Shooting Supply reports that ammunition purchases in the Los Angeles County metro area have surged nearly 400 percent in the two months since the November 8 passage of Proposition 63.
Prop 63 goes into effect January 1, 2018. It will require a background check to be performed on all face-to-face ammunition purchases and will prohibit the acquisition of ammunition from online outlets. The months since the passage of Prop 63 have been marked by a frenzy of online ammunition purchases.
And, according to Widener’s, California has surged while “nationwide traffic to [their website] has remained relatively static.”
Widener’s spokeswoman, Anne Taylor said, “There’s been a massive influx of California hunters and sport shooters who are stocking up in the wake of California’s new laws, no doubt about it. There’s not just increased interest, it’s clear the gun owners who are buying are buying in bulk. We’ve seen our average order weight go up in the past couple months.”
