California goes full out bonkers on Gun Control
 
List of Proposed California Gun Control Measures — 500 Round Max, No Grandfathering, No Detachable Mags, Mandatory License

A press conference just wrapped up in California where the Democrats (who have an overwhelming majority in the state) unveiled their latest gun control agenda. And since the Democratic majority is so strong, these aren’t proposals — it’s a preview of things to come. According to one person who was watching the press conference, the following new restrictions on personal liberties will be coming to the most “liberal” state in the union . . .



Thanks to Reddit:

■Possession of hollow point bullets and similar assault bullets a felony.
■Must register and report ammo purchases. Only purchase max 500 rounds.
■10 round magazine limit
■ALL magazines must be fixed to the gun (can not be removed without the use of a tool)
■100% prohibition of all magazines greater than 10 rounds. All previous grandfathered magazines become illegal. Felony if you keep one.
■Changing definition of shotgun revolving cylinder — Basically only single shot shotguns will remain legal.
■Bullet Buttons will become illegal — All AR and AK style rifles that are currently equipped with them will be designated Assault Weapons. Felony to possess.
■All gun owners now must be licensed like drivers.
■All gun owners must carry gun liability insurance

This is the first time we’ve seen a state try to enact this kind of ammunition posession legislation. Maryland is trying to set up a minimum age for ANYONE to purchase ammo, but California is going leaps and bounds beyond that. From Yahoo! news:


Like New York, California also would require background checks for buying ammunition and would add to the list of prohibited weapons.

Those buying ammunition would have to pay a fee and undergo an initial background check by the state Department of Justice, similar to what is required now before buyers can purchase a weapon. Subsequent background checks would be done instantly by an ammunition seller checking the Justice Department’s records.

And what did the senators have to say about the pending legislation? From the presser:


“We respect the Second Amendment right of law abiding citizens to have guns for hunting, for sport, for protecting their homes and families. But loopholes in California’s tough gun laws have been exploited long enough,” said Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg. “We can save lives by curbing the proliferation of guns designed to be fired and reloaded rapidly. We can save lives by getting guns and ammunition out of the hands of the wrong people. We can save lives if every gun owner knows how to safely handle those guns. And if we can save lives, we must act to do so.”

So basically California is about to try and implement every single gun control measure on the Democrats’ wish list, with the exception of full confiscation. And thanks to the government of California, there’s just about nothing that can be done to stop it short of legal action. Or armed insurrection.

The CA Democrats have gone full retard. :facepalm:

Dayze 02-08-2013 01:30 PM

ahh...the 'ol "...this will save lives" crutch to pass legislation (of any kind).

2nd only to "...it's for the children".

Imagine these **** stains trying to pass that shit in Wyoming, or Texas? lmao.

California should just be annexed. Someone get Buck before it's too late.
And Dane.

Its time for the mother of all earthquakes to send that shithole state to the deep abyss

Dr. Gigglepants 02-08-2013 01:32 PM

So wouldn't the no detachable magazine pretty much outlaw 100% of all handguns? Good luck with that.

there will be a background check and fee in order to obtain the tool to remove your magazine.

The pornstars are all leaving anyway; can't make porn without a condom in Cali anymore.

That state really is the Peoples Republic of California. And the damn shame of it is that a great deal of that state is as conservative as you'd ever find but the population centers have just become liberal havens.

It's astonishing to me that a state that has so many money magnets in it that do nothing more than suck in out of state cash is still so deep in the red...yet they continue to elect the same leadership and enact the same backwards policies.

It seems I see a lot of people here mentioned these things should be handled at the state level anyways so here you go. Besides, it's just another good reason to get out of that state. (unless in the northern part where the landscape is so cool).

WTF is a "bullet button"?


The police should also have to comply with these measures.

Dayze 02-08-2013 01:52 PM

if they're so hell bent on 'saving lives' why not outlaw alcohol?


lol. oh, yeah - I forgot.

Quick release mags are already illegal in California. The 'bullet button' is a button the side of a gun that would've had a quick-release, removable mag that can be pressed by inserting a bullet or other pointy object in there.

It's essentially a way around an already nutty law on the books in California and a loophole they're trying to close up.

This is the truth. The Central Valley was as conservative as Western KS. And everybody owned guns. I mean, it's Fresno. You better have a weapon.

Dunno. I can’t make it passed “assault bullets” without cracking up and thanking Vishnu that I don’t live in the People’s Republic of Kalifornia.

It could be argued that it is a complete handgun ban which was struck down by the SCotUS in 2009. Also struck were laws demanding trigger locks or that firearms be kept in pieces.
