Tried to buy ammo at sporting goods store. They ran me for the new background check and I was denied. Either because I don't have an Automated Firearms System (AFS) record, OR because the info I provided did not match my AFS record. I did purchase a firearm last in 2016.

Anyone else confront this? How did you troubleshoot? One thing the vendor suggested was to get that new Drivers License or ID card. I did however have my passport and car registration.

Before I give this communist state another dime of my hard earned money, I want to make sure I know exactly what my next indicated step is.

Your address when you bought your firearm in 2016 must match to your current DL or passport address. If not, then you will be denied.
I see. So, then I somehow need to update the address for the firearm I bought in 2016. Any guidance on how I do that? Don't live there anymore. (appreciate the help)

To be honest, I don't remember the form I filled out in 2016 when I bought that firearm. But it definitely would've had my old address on it. I wish I knew how to check what address I used on that form, and how to update it if possible.

You can pay a $20.00 fee to be put in the data base but you’ll have to wait 10 days also.

What is coming next is you will be denied the purchase of a caliber of ammo for a weapon that you do not have registered to you. For instance, your trying to purchase .45acp but you have no .45 Firearms you will be denied.

These new ammo laws were about more taxes, more goverment jobs and making it harder to hunt.

Restrictions on shot gun shells? You gotta be kidding

Fucking liberals

Our votes don't mean much in this state when you have Newsom the dictator running it.The fuel tax comes to mind when it was described as anything but a fuel tax on the ballot.Probably some of the same crap going on with voting on gun laws.
