George Soros’s Son Dumps $100,000 Into California Ammo Control Efforts

Democratic mega-donor Alexander Soros has given $100,000 to support the “yes” campaign on a California ballot measure that would ban possession of large-capacity magazines, require the California Department of Justice to maintain a list of all residents authorized to purchase ammunition and would prohibit Californians from purchasing ammo without first obtaining the authorization of the California Department of Justice.

Even though he is a New York resident, Soros — the son of left-wing financier George Soros — is one of the top 10 biggest donors behind the “yes” campaign on Proposition 63, according to the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

If passed, the ballot would ban the possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines, regardless of when they were purchased. Current California law already bans the possession of such magazine but has an exemption for magazines purchased before the year 2000.

Prop. 63 would also require all ammo purchasers to first obtain a $50 permit from the California DOJ. The state government would also be required to keep tabs on who is or isn’t authorized to purchase ammunition.

“The Department shall create and maintain an internal centralized list of all persons who are authorized to purchase ammunition and shall promptly remove from the list any persons whose authorization was revoked by the Department pursuant to this section,” the ballot measure states.

Both Alex and George Soros are big Hillary Clinton donors. The two have combined to give more than $10 million to pro-Clinton superPAC Priorities USA, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Alex Soros even privately dined with Tim Kaine soon after Clinton tapped Kaine as her running mate. (RELATED: Hillary Takes In Three Times As Much Hedge Fund Money As ’08 Obama)
