requiring people to use an ammunition vendor licensed by the DOJ to complete a
transaction, unless the transaction involves 50 rounds or less in a month and is
between: (a) licensed hunters while hunting; or (b) immediate family members;
(2) Commencing January 1, 2018, bans the direct mail-order sale of all ammunition,

bringing any ammunition from out-of-state into California;
(4) Commencing July 1, 2019, generally prohibits the purchase of ammunition by
anyone, except for special people, unless authorized by the DOJ to do so;
