California has a supermajority of Left wing Democrats whom control both Houses of the state legislature, as well as Jerry Brown in the governor's chair. Not content with having the highest taxes in the nation and the worst climate for business, they now want to shoot ( pun intended) for the most restrictive and unconstitutional gun laws in the U.S.
Democrats who control the state Legislature revealed 10 proposals that they said would make California the most restrictive state for possessing firearms.
They were joined at a Capitol news conference by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, along with several police chiefs.
"California has always been a leader on the issue of gun safety," Villaraigosa said. "New York has stepped up and stepped forward. California needs to answer the call."
Before the laws that were recently pushed through in New York, California had the most stringent state gun laws in the country. Apparently the once Golden State wants to reclaim the crown.
The proposals now being talked about include:
Three bills have already been introduced, with others to come before this month's deadline for submitting legislation.
Of course, once the laws are passed, California's army of gang bangers and recently released felons are sure to turn in any weapons they have that end up on the banned list, register any firearms they still own, gladly turn in their now illegal magazines and happily comply with every aspect of the new legislation.
They have a reputation for their respect for the law. I'm sure that Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa knows that, as an ex-gang banger himself.
The laws will be challenged in court and eventually defeated, but that isn't going to stop California's Democrats from trying. Besides, in the interim, they will have disarmed a number of law abiding citizens.
What could possibly go wrong?
