California to Ban all Semi-Automatic Guns, Confiscate Firearms and Limit Ammo Sales

ar15California legislators are in the process of rolling out what will be the strictest gun control laws in the country. Democrat state Legislatures rolled out a list of proposals that will instantly criminalize most of the state’s law abiding gun owners.

The new law would outlaw all semiautomatic weapons, criminalize anyone who has more than 500 rounds of ammo, and require a permit to buy ammunition in the future. California, which already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, is also looking at a proposal which would call for the immediate confiscation of 166,000 registered modern sporting rifles. This is why people are against Registration!

Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, unveiled the gun control package in a news conference Thursday at the state Capitol.

The package includes:

  • Banning the possession — not just manufacture and sale — of magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
  • Making possession of hollow point bullets and similar “assault bullets” a felony.
  • Requiring anyone wishing to buy ammunition to first get a permit by passing a background check.
  • Requiring the registration and reporting of all ammo purchases. Limits the number of rounds anyone can have at one time to 500 rounds.
  • Requiring all gun owners will have to be licensed like drivers, and will be forced to carry gun liability insurance.
  • Banning any gun that has a detachable magazine, and requires a 100% prohibition of all fixed magazines greater than 10 rounds.
  • Making all previous grandfathered magazines become illegal, and it will become a felony if you keep one.
  • Prohibiting anyone barred from owning a weapon from living in a home where weapons are kept
  • Expanding the list of crimes that would bar a person from gun possession.
  • Letting the state Justice Department use money from the state’s Dealer’s Record of Sale system to eliminate the backlog of people identified as no longer allowed to own guns but not yet investigated and contacted by law enforcement.

    from what I’ve seen on the news the people doing the shootings have some kind of a mental problem. I think Cal. is way overboard and going in the wrong direction.

            Seems to me, a targeted approach to gun violence would be to ban liberal progressive democrats from owning firearms. All of these psychos fall within this category. I seriously can’t understand why anyone lives in this state.

            If your theory were accurate than this mental illness afflicted Reagan and Bush 1. Bush 1 renounced his NRA membership and supported Clintons ban along with Ronnie the great. You have only yourselves to blame.

          I agree, and the same laws they try to shove down our throats they get as well. And not one time did the liberal media call the weapon used to shoot two women in a “truck that looked like Dorner’s” an assault rifle. And “who needs training” , if you as a civilian have a negligent discharge you are in big trouble, what is wrong with this picture

          Republicans refuse any law that helps the needy, those that stockpile weapons tend to be registered Republicans and conservatives are constantly trying to remove the freedoms of anyone that doesn’t live under the life code that they, themselves dictate.

            republicans don’t refuse to help the needy. They refuse to continuously give money to people that are too lazy to get up off their butt and get a job. I grew up poor and my family used government aid as a hand-up (which is what it was designed to do) and not a hand out. Now my parents and several family members have stable jobs and hasn’t been sucking off the tit of the government like all these Obama loving fools.

            Cory are you a idiot. Republicans are not passing laws because the democrats are trying to take are rights away like the NDAA treaty or how about the CRPD Treaty. Did you now that every Democrat voted to take my rights a parent away from my child under the CRPD Treaty and give that right to the U.N. And that the U.N. has all rights under the supremacy clause and that no state or federal judge can over turn their decision. Why would I support/ or anyone one in this great nation support a party to take your rights away. With that it sounds like you are not educated on are government and what they are doing to us. They don’t care because they done have to follow the same laws they right there own. Then crap on us. That’s way there medical insurance is different than Obamacare. Educate your self before comparing these things to the bible.

            Cori, Learn to read. More importantly learn history. The Republican’s were the ones (under President Lincoln) who were responsible for the start of equality of all men (13th amendment). The Democrats were the ones trying to stop it. The fact is in the last five years the democratic party has done more damage to this country than any external enemy could.

          Stormy, you are right. DC is full of mentally ill people. The proof of that is a congress crazy enough to think that banning an inanimate object will stop the violence that PEOPLE do. California needs to stop perpetuating a lie. The term “assault weapon” is a term coined by the media. The only true assault weapon is a fully automatic one or one that fires an explosive projectile. None of which are available to the general public. Either they need to pass legislation that requires the police to protect the people (right now the police have no duty to do so according to the Supreme Court) or the need sweeping reform of the mental health care industry. I also think that they should start trying to fix their economy (they have been basically bankrupt for years) and maybe create some jobs. Stop trying to love the bad stuff out of criminals and start locking people up and try to reform them. The problem is that all of these things are hard and would actually require them to think and do some work.

        February 22, 2013 at 1:23 pm

        Unfortunately, this boycott everyone is talking about will fail due to a serious lack of conviction to stick to our principles until the work is done. Instead, we get busy, wrapped up in life, or maybe experience a little pain by our decision to take a stand, and then all too quickly decide “we’ve had enough”.

        For the most part, the masses just can’t wait for the next episode of “Housewives of Atlanta” or “The Bachelor”! Generally as a nation in trouble in so many ways, one would hope that we could collectively muster an attention span on the “real” issues that lasts longer than the next episode of TMZ!

        The Libtards are little more than brain-dead zombies that just spew the diseased and irrational propaganda of the Left. It’s the Leftist power-mongers that are the real threat. Make no mistake…they will see this country transformed to little more than a bowl of oatmeal if they are allowed to continue unchecked and unchallenged!

          Amen Sting. I believe most people are missing the big picture. This country is borrowing .46 cents out of every dollar it spends and were are spending so much more than we produce, very upside down. The only reason were are sustaining, is because we have a money tree (printing presses) but as the rest of the world realizes this, which they are, that we only control a fiat currency, we will lose our world currency power, which means more devaluation of the dollar and no more free money to hand out. The removing of guns state and federal wide, is because the white house and congress see massive riots and chaos to follow. Desperate governments will do desperate things. They got in this mess, but we will have to fight our way out. Ironic isn’t it. I hope we have the fight in us, and know what were fighting for, or you can draw your own conclusions from recent history…

      Unfornatly,most people suffering from mental illness are far more likely to be abused than to go on a shooting rampage.they are regularly bullied,isolated,difficulty in social areas due to stigma of being crazy. And account for a very small portion of shootings. They require better acess to counseling,family support,and mediacal treatment. I hope they do not become a scape goat for shootings when criminals should be blamed. Also parentsof the mentaly ill need more support,especially in single parent homes. Better access to treatment is a must for them. Their family should be proactive with comunnicating issues with drs and when needed the police. A mental hold is better than a murder. And parents and care givers of mentally ill children should be held responsible if they drop the ball and don’t secure their weapons. If we ignore their problems,this lack of empathy will just make this worse. Disability aslo needs to be treated differently with regard to the mentaly ill,to get these people medical support before they hurt themselvesor someone else.

        “And account for a very small portion of shootings”. Really? Look at the perpetrators of the Virginia Tech., Aurora, Gabby Giffords, and Newtown shootings. They ALL had some sort of mental illness issues and/or were taking SSRI type antidepressant medications. Punishing the law abiding gun owners and infringing upon the rights of good citizens is not going to have any beneficial affect or decrease these shootings. Enforcing current laws may be of some benefit, and improving mental health accountability and treatment as well as educating the population on securing firearms would help. But, as is pointed out over and over, the criminals don’t care about or abide by any of these ridiculous gun control laws! Get off of the backs of we already overly regulated law abiding gun owners!

          Jon is correct. Mass-murders account for a very small percentage of homicides by firearm. Most are one and two victim crimes and most are committed with handguns. Those are perpetrated by run-of-the-mill criminals. Granted, they’re obviously sociopaths, but not “Mentally Ill” like the guys that have snapped and then shot up schools, theatres, etc.

            March 7, 2013 at 7:32 pm

            That’s right according to FBI stats 90% of gun homicides are drug or gang related and most occur in major cities not main street America. The districts were most of the gun violence has occurred have one thing in common they overwhelmingly vote for democrats so if dumbicrats would stop killing people with their guns we wouldn’t have a gun problem anymore.

      This isn’t about any of that it’s about taking ppl’s guns…. a AR!% wasn’t even used at Sandy Hook it was found in the back seat of the car he was driving 4 handguns were used… ask the Jews how turning over their guns went when Hitler was running Germany..

      • Chris
        February 9, 2013 at 3:06 pm

        Kerry, the AR was in the school, there was a semi-auto shotgun in the car. Doesn’t matter, the fact is it is one of the very few times that class of weapon was used successfully in a spree killing. It is an over reach and not a problem in the hands of 99.9% of the firearm owners.

        • Dave
          February 9, 2013 at 7:35 pm

          Chris, I watched the Ct. state police specifically say that “no ar 15 was used in the sandy hook shooting. There was an ar15 found in the car the suspect drove, but was not used in the shooting”.

        • Greg
          February 9, 2013 at 10:29 pm

          The AR was found in the trunk of the car! There is a video of the Police Officer clearing the weapon when it was found in the trunk… Gun control is not the answer. If you have a trained and licensed person with a firearm when a psycho decides to go on a shooting spree you are more than likely going to be able to stop the psycho fro his shooting spree before the casualties add up!!!!!!!

          • Steve
            February 10, 2013 at 3:25 am

            the weapon found in the car was a pump action shotgun you can see it in the footige if you look closely.
            The Sandy Hook disaster is way too chaotic with all the premature Information released to say wether an ar 15 was actually used.

          • Dark Space
            February 10, 2013 at 12:46 pm

            Steve is right, the weapon in the car was a shotgun, not an AR. While I realize this has been widely debated, it weakens the argument against egregious gun control laws and makes people think others are “tin foil hat wearing gun nuts” when they persist to argue a point that has been proven otherwise. Now, perhaps we find out the officials are lying and fabricating the story, but it currently detracts from the real debate around gun control. Unless you have more information than the rest of us (i.e. news reports, pictures [that show a shotgun], etc.) then it really doesn’t help your argument. Let’s just assume the AR15 was used – who cares, it really doesn’t change the fact that a crazy person stole someone’s unsecured weapons and used them to kill little kids. Reducing the magazine size wouldn’t have stopped him (is a kindergartner going to tackle him?), even giving him a knife would not have stopped him – he was nuts and breaking the law.

            I love the fact that during the news conference they’re talking about the crazy former-LAPD officer. He even points out during this that there is no excuse for this killer and rejects the journalist who brings up the fact the killer has some beef with the LAPD. He says “clearly this guy has a mental issue and that’s all there is”, but immediately goes against this and fails to recognize that the real problem is that the guy is mentally ill. It’s not his guns, it’s his brains that are fubar’d. (He also incorrectly notes that the Newtown killer legally purchased his guns!?!). Oddly enough, moments after this interview LAPD shot a 70+ year old woman twice IN THE BACK because she was driving a similar (but different year, color, make, model) truck.

            For the record, there is footage of them removing a shotgun from the trunk, but there is also footage of them removing the AR-15 from the car as well. The AR-15 and the shotgun were never taken into the school. Neither of those weapons were fired at anyone.

            February 17, 2013 at 10:15 am

            Greg, I agree 100%! Gun control is not the answer or fix all! I think it will just create more problems, esp. for law abiding citizens who need one for protection. If somebody wants to commit a crime, they will find a way! A big thanks to my responsible parents who taught me from the time I knew what a gun was, safety, how to use it properly & they are def. not toys to show off in front of your friends! Also, if you’re not prepared physically or mentally to use it in a crisis, you don’t need one..period! There’s big difference in just owning a gun & knowing how to use it or if you have the ability to actually pull the trigger, if it ever comes to that, to help save yours or others lives!

        Actually…. that bushmaster AR15 they kept putting all over the news… was never even recovered… not even from the vehicle Lanza allegedly drove… I am a firearms expert and upon watching the footage, what I saw them remove from “the trunk” of the vehicle that wasn’t even registered to anyone in the Lanza family, had the profile of an automat kalashnikov… yet,… as I watched the officers break every known protocol and handle the firearm ejecting cartridges… it dawned on me that it was actually a Saiga 12, a shotgun that employs the profile of AK47 variants… which has many polar differences to the Armalite profile that Stoner created… but easily confused by any liberal or person who classifies and profiles any rifle in a sporting form factor to be “scary” or “menacing”…

        ha! from this blog, none of you actually know what the second amendment states. here, let me remind you: As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, then-Secretary of State:[23]

        A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

        so how many of you constitutional loving morons actually joined with a civilian, well regulated militia in order to be prepared to take out a would be dictator?

        here is also a supreme court ruling on the issue of firearms. In United States v. Cruikshank (1876), the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that, “The right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence” and limited the applicability of the Second Amendment to the federal government.[2] In United States v. Miller (1939), the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government and the states could limit any weapon types not having a “reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia”.[3][4]

        also, all of you had great opportunities to actually sit down and hammer out logical, reasonable gun laws, such as no more selling of guns at fairs where background checks do not take place, no selling of military weapons to the public. but, no, you morons had to turn this into a pissing contest.

        there are many things that i don’t agree with the about gun laws, but you idiots helped to push it there. aren’t you just so proud of yourselves?

        oh, and the stuff about christianity…i am sure i can hear jesus singing your praises about letting people starve and die. hypocrites!

As to morons the 2cnd. Amendment allows we, the people, to keep and bear arms SO THAT A WELL REGULATED MILITIA may be raised when needed. (Which how the Continental Army was raised).

Actually removing guns from the hands of these citizens will only raise the gun violence statistics because now the criminals know that citizens don’t have guns to fight back. Crimes rates will only raise. If guns kill people, then how does anyone ever get out of a gun show or store alive? The criminals are the problem, lets address them for once.

      So what is the percentage of the population that commits these random shootings?
      Why should we suspend the 2nd amendment rights of 99.999999999999999999999999 % of the 330 Million Americans because of the Actions of .00000000000000000000000000001% of the Population ?

      Illegal Aliens kill more Americans than a few Nuts with Guns,
      So why are we trying to outlaw guns,
      and grant Citizenship to 13 million Criminals?

      “Lets Disarm Law Abiding Citizens and give Citizenship to 13 Million Criminals!” = LIBERAL LOGIC

      Illegal Aliens make up less than 3% of the Population yet they make up about 25% of ALL Prisoners in the United States, and about 90% of them are incarcerated for NON Immigration related Offenses !

      Check out the GAO report about Illegal Alien Crime Rates, also check out the large numbers of Rapes and Murders Illegal Aliens commit, does it make any sense at all to Freak out and try to infringe and severely limit The Constitutional rights of 330 Million Americans because of a very small percentage of gun crimes, yet at the Same time Illegal Aliens Kill and Rape more Children each Year than all the Psychos’ on shooting sprees since 1982 !

      Yet the Ass Clowns in Washington Want to Reward Criminal behavior for 13 Million Illegal Aliens
      And Punish 330 Million law Abiding Americans for the misconduct of 60 Psychos’ with Guns!

      A problem I see is there is a mental sickness with the Sacramento crowd, and the people that allowed this state to loose checks and balances. There is no opposition to any thing the dictators want to do.
      I’m in favor of registration of “spoons” for fat people, if we have to register out weapons. And the next time a deranged person shoots someone the district of that politician should fire them.
      It’s all a take over and a stupid way to get votes in the socialist areas, of the uninformed.
      We have lost the country to the dictators bent on damaging the republic. It’s gone.
      Hide your guns.

      He stated in his opening remarks that some 2800 people died by guns, suicide, murder, accidents etc.. in one year.
      He then declared the same amount of people died from automobile accidents. He said cars, trucks, all vehicles are licensed as well as all drivers tested and licensed. He suggested that new laws be made to have guns the same as the cars.
      My question is if all the licensing, testing etc… of drivers works so well then why are the deaths by cars not important enough to add more restrictions on the way cars are made or what kind of car you can own? Why should you have a car that goes faster than 50 miles an hour. They have proved that an accident at 50 miles an hour cause less injury and deaths than an accident at 70. Why does anyone need a car with 755 horsepower that can go 200 miles and hour when the speed laws in most states is 70 to 80 miles an hour. Then he calls for the same licensing, registration etc.. for guns and gun owners. What’s the flaw here?. If the licensing of vehicles and drivers has the same rate of deaths as unlicensed guns what is the benefit of licensing guns?
      Also why are they not trying to limit the horsepower of vehicles so they can only go let’s say 50 miles an hour?. why don’t they make bumpers on vehicles much stronger.
      There is absolutely no sense and absolutely no comparison to the type of gun laws restrictions and controls they want to put on guns. Why, because they want to ultimately disarm the people entirely. It’s about controlling us. They don’t want to restrict car ownership or punish and make criminals out of law abiding citizens for owning a car with 755 horsepower that can go 200 miles and hour but they want to take a semi automatic pistol away? It doesn’t do a thing to save some ones life, get serious here. It is plain control over the people and it takes away a persons ability to protect his family from the crack pots that are out there creating the crimes and murders that create a need for a person to own weapons to begin with.
      We need guns not only to protect our families and belongings but to also protect our Constitution and Liberties, it’s our God given right as a free society to protect ourselves from all enemies both foreign and domestic.
      Ask any cop, or any politician how they plan to make it to your house and save your family if someone breaks in and starts shooting, or chopping or using baseball bats, or chainsaws, or rocks and starts killing your family if they can please get there in 2 1/2 seconds to take the criminal out and save your family from harm, go ahead and ask them!! You know as well as I do there is no way they can. Do you want that? to see your family slaughtered? when there is a huge possibility that maybe you could have saved their lives if you would have had a gun?
      Don’t fall for this crap they are trying to shove down your throat. When our government takes away the guns there goes your freedoms along with it, there goes your ability to protect yourself your family and properties. When they can guaranteed us absolutely that there will be no more crime, the nuts that go out and kill will no longer do that and that we are 100% safe from harm and that there will be no enemies both foreign and domestic to fear then maybe we could have some type of gun control. Until then is pure suicide to let them take our guns and right away from us. Stand up with me and tell them Hell no you can’t take our defenses away from me!!

        Well, in answer to that, you have to look a bit into the past. Since the inception of vehicle laws, deaths by vehicles over the last 10 years have been reduced by around 50%, which is where he gets the idea that it’s possible the same kind of reduction could be seen if similiar laws were enected for guns.

          September 5, 2016 at 9:41 pm

          Guns are not vehicles. They are very simply devices, where it’s an impossibility, for them to be fired without input from irresponsible users. They are not rattlesnakes with minds of their own, nor are they machines, that are powered by fuel and batteries. Even a child can come to this conclusion but leftists are dishonest. One need only look at Chicago, and other gun control utopias, to see what such restrictions accomplish. The leftist are not intent on really attacking crime. That would entail attacking the very demographic that keeps such corrupt politicians in office.

          The people committing the crimes, are the constituents of the legisexuals, writing the tyrannical legislation. Who want to reap the dishonest political reward, for propping up their terrible constituents, while persecuting their political enemies, namely traditional Americans. All at the same time.

      Just to make a correction, there is no limit to how much ammo anyone can own. The 500 rounds cited in the new law is “that any individual who sell more than 500 rounds in any month is required to obtain an annual state-issued business license.”

      Its to force all ammo resellers to have to get this new business license. There is no stipulation on how much ammo an individual person can buy or own.

    Unfortunately your average gang member ot criminal has not registered his weapons. Yiou will only be confiscating legal weapons from law abiding citzens. You are unable to control your border with Mexico and soon the weapons your governmemnt gave to Mexico will be for sell at upscaled pries in your state. You will create a huge black market in weapons and ammo. and like drugs where there is incresed profit there will be increased business

You destroy the states of your birth and then pick up the plunder you have scored and metastasize southward. We hate you. It’s time to divorce. California, keep your pornography and hedonism.

There is no way out but to start over. Likewise our country would have never been born without the patriots from the Northeast. Look at the people there now. They can’t hold a candle to their forefathers. It is a disgusting insult that the birthplace of American patriotism is now a cesspool of socialism and anti-Americanism. Everything is 180 degrees from what should be, brother. The cancer IS the people. The government is of the people. Give me. Give me. Give me. Regulate. Regulate. Regulate. I am sick to death of seeing the cancerous populous vote for these laws in their nest, then pour East and South when their nest is irreparably fouled. Straighten out your mess at home. March on your capitols and ride some people out of town on rails and then we can speak about who is fighting for what. I have fought, literally and figuratively for the last 30 years for my country.

Have you ever even been here? Or do you shovel in your morning news and ask for another helping without ever stopping to ask what’s in it? It’s people like you, who think finding someone to blame is more important than finding a solution, who are the real sickness. You are just like the politicians you mock, always pointing the finger across the aisle so you don’t have to admit you might not know what the hell you are doing. And so quick to open your mouth as if you have the answers, safe behind your computer screen, fattening your ass in your confortable, stationary seat of judgement. Bet you’ll point the finger at me for pointing it out long before you’ll admit I’m right, too…that’s the problem with sick people-sometimes they don’t know they are sick.

        It is not just your 2nd amendment rights. It is all of your rights. It is the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is the ability to live your life without being forced into serfdom by the “Federal” government. It is about not being forced into slavery to pay for able bodied people to feed and house themselves and have luxuries such as cellphones. It is about not forcing a physician into slavery because he is required to work to provide for someone who does not and will not pay their bills. It is about the children of this country born into debt slavery. I am as strong a supporter of the 2nd amendment as anyone, but it is only a piece of the pie. Shrink your government. Now. Before it is too late.

          I’m a native Californian. California was once a fairly conservative state. Ronald Reagan was a two-term governor here, remember? More recently we’ve passed initiatives banning state services for illegal aliens, race-based “affirmative action” and gay marriage.

          The problem we have is that a lot of northeastern liberals have moved here, and unionized liberals now run our public schools. Combine that with decades of illegal immigration and “anchor babies”, and we’ve now got a perfect storm of left-leaning voters.

          But even now, California has the same blue state/red state problem as the whole country. Most of the state is red, but too much of the population is centered in the liberal bastions of L.A. and the Bay Area.

      You have let the bad guys float for so long, you will never get the guns out of bad guys hands, that is joke if you belive, not only the problem of guns being in bad guys hands, but the mentally ill , hell all you have to do is claim that all have mental illness then take all guns, you missed the problem all the way around, as you do all the time , YOU SUPPORT DISARMING AMERICA YOU CAN BE CHARGED FOR THAT ACTION !! put the bad guys away ! stop turning them back to the streets you are supporting your own jobs with hunting for them all over again, then turning them lose on us, now you wish to disarm us to a point of no defence agains there full auto weapons , you are sick in my thinking ! I am retired FF and have had shoots fired at me before so dream on with taking guns !

      But the U.S seperates violent crimes from gun crimes in their reporting. in actuality the US is third in the world in gun crimes

        The US is third in the world in gun crimes only because most of these other countries ahead of the US in crimes has some form of limited gun ownership where-as the general population doesn’t own guns. You have to looat the overall big picture in that yes we have higher gun crime but lower crime rates because people in the US have a means to protect themselves.

        What you also fail to mention is all gun related deaths and injuries in the US are listed as gun crimes in the US. Someone commits suicide, hunting accident, etc. Not just and simply murders.

    This is astounding. The degree at which the federal government AND states are attempting to jam this legislation down our throats.

    The America we once new is gone.

    The ridiculous aspect of these proposed laws… they will not be adhered to by any criminal. What do they not understand about that fact…? Oh wait… that’s right… they know this, but don’t care. They simply want to disarm everyone (except themselves and their body guards of course).

      The laws won’t be adhered to by any criminal, and any American citizen who will not comply with the order will end up being a criminal. And now with Obama having the choice of killing an American citizen when he thinks it is necessary, well…I guess we can see where this is going.

    Strong gun rights states should pass legislation making it a felony for CA and NY residents to travel to or through their respective states without a semi-automatic firearm and a magazine holding more than 10 rounds.

    When they take your Rights away, thank a Democrat.

    When they tax you more, thank a Democrat.

    When they give illegal immigrants your hard earned money, thank a Democrat.

    When they say you can’t burn in your own fireplace, thank a Democrat.

    When food prices go up because of Obamacare, thank a Democrat.

    When gas prices go up, thank a Democrat.

    When your kids are held back in school not because they are not smart enough but rather due to teachers spending more time with non-english speaking kids, thank a Democrat.

    When you have to ask permission to build a house, fence, wall, patio, etc., thank a Democrat.

    When farmers can’t get water for their crops, thank a Democrat.

    When criminals are released from jails and prison early, thank a Democrat.

    When you smell feces and urine in the streets of San Francisco, thank a Democrat.

    When a 2nd grade kid gets suspended from school for pointing his finger like a gun, thank a Democrat.

    When an 8th grade girl get contraceptives from school, thank a Democrat.

    Aren’t you tired of thanking Democrats?

    When they try to take your guns away, how are you going to thank a Democrat?

    I suppose this will help to hasten the return of CA to Mexico. Most Americans interested in maintaining their arms will leave along with businesses. What will be left? No much… They will ask for money to cover their social programs because there won’t be enough revenue.

      Haha! People and businesses come to Cali because of its endless resources and fertile soil. If they take guns, businesses aren’t going anywhere. There’s a reason California is so populated and we Californians are very proud. I you guys want to boycott the state, please do! Our sunny beaches and beautiful theme parks are too crowded as it is.

      Thanks for the invite Malcolm. I grew up in Texas and most of my family still live there.

      I live in Cali now and no one is taking my guns.

      I didn’t start this fight, but I mean to see it through.

    I’m in California, so it looks like I will be buying another Savage Model 99. Built in rotary magazine (non-removable)and lever action. Stick that up your commie tail-end, Feinstein. Light and perfectly balanced means you can get on target faster, and a lever means almost as quick in getting off the next aimed round as a semi-auto. In speed-demon .22-250, with copper solids just what one needs for armored zombies.

    Legalities aside, the gun control they are attempting will not work–too many citizens care too much about their rights. Plus, what happens if someone from TX is visiting family in CA and has their pistol in the glove box? Texas law states my car is an extension of my house and my house is in TX…

    I am a 3rd generation native Californian. I left California 11 years ago, because the politics and the ignoring the problems of the illegal aliens became unbearable. I have not been back, and I won’t come back. California was once a wonderful, beautiful state, sorry to say it hasn’t been for a long time,and this stupid move will bury it for sure.
