California ammunition purchases will now come with a background check, as Prop. 63 provision goes into effect

Eddie Kurtz, the executive director of Courage Campaign, a progressive advocacy group that campaigned for Prop. 63 in 2016, said the ammunition regulation is a step in the right direction. 
“These incredibly modest steps are meant to help save lives,” Kurtz said in a phone interview. “It’s just not right to oppose them because they’re inconvenient.”
California voters have shown they’re in favor of gun regulations aimed at reducing gun violence — demonstrated by the landslide support for Prop. 63, Kurtz said — and his organization is supporting further regulation.
