Dusty Devil Dale Posted November 19, 2019 Share Posted November 19, 2019 At our match on Sunday, a new shooter related his story of his attempt to buy a box of shotgun shells at a local big box store. The man in front of him in the l-o-n-g line was an active duty Navy serviceman, stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Station. He had only his out of state driver's license and his military active duty ID card as identification. The new law requires a CA driver's license or passport. He was not allowed to make the purchase. He quipped that the US government will let him fly an armed F16, but California won't let him buy a box of shotgun shells to go pheasant hunting with his dad. This was a true story! I guess active duty servicemen and women are now treated as second class citizens in our increasingly liberal state. The guy in line ahead of the Navy Officer was a man who was refused, even though he had a CCW license issued by the State AG, which in California, denotes a full FBI background check. But he didn't have the required document. Sad! Very SAD. Link to comment
