WELL At least as far as I can tell it doesn't involve any idiotic "microstamping" schemes, but evidently now in California you need a Brady Check to buy AMMO. I saw this on TV while eating lunch today and couldn't believe it when I checked the forums - including the California forums - and found no comment.
This is more than a bit worrisome to me because when I was studying Criminal Justice Administration in college damn near all the textbooks were "California-Centric". Inbau and Ried, who wrote some really great texts on interrogation, interviews, and confessions were a couple LAPD investigators.
Any of you California boys able to shed some light on what's afoot in the Land of Fruit and Nuts?
