CA DOJ is dragging their feet again...
An El Dorado County ammunition store is on the brink of closing after the store owner said he applied for a new license from the California Department of Justice to sell ammunition and never heard back.
The ammunition vendor license is a new operating requirement as of Jan. 1, 2018.
Chris Puehse has owned Foothill Ammo in Cameron Park since 2015. He said he applied for the new license in November and paid a $198 fee, but on Tuesday, he was told by the state DOJ that is hasn’t been processed yet.
“I did everything they asked me to do, from documentation to fees, and now they can’t hold up their end of the agreement and provide me with what legal certification I need to continue doing business as I have every day,” Puehse said.
Puehse first realized there was an issue after two vendors emailed him Tuesday and told him they’d have to stop sending him ammunition to sell if he didn’t get his license.
“I’m going to be shut down real quick if I can’t buy product to sell," Puehse said. "I’m not going to last very long without that license in hand.”
