California's Jihad Against The 2nd Amendment Continues - On Steroids

California's Democrat dominated legislature is continuing its steady progress towards eventual confiscation with scads of new anti-Second Amendment legislation.

The state's laws are already the most anti-gun ownership in the country, but you ain't seen nothin' yet, as the saying goes.

Under a bill passed by the Senate, Californians who want to buy ammunition would have to submit personal information and a $50 fee for a background check by the state. Then the state Department of Justice would determine whether buyers have a criminal record, severe mental illness or a restraining order that would disqualify them from owning guns.

I wonder if being a registered Republican, voicing 'unpopular opinions' or an affiliation with certain conservative groups will be classified by Democrat appointees in the state Department of Justice as 'mental illness'?

The Senate also passed a bill that would outlaw the sale, purchase and manufacture in California of semiautomatic rifles that can accommodate detachable magazines.

For those of you whom actually know anything about firearms, all rifles are semi-auto unless we're talking about bolt action single shots or black powder rifles.And there are plenty of rifles used in ordinary hunting and target shooting that use box type detachable magazines of anywhere from 3 shots and up. This bill affects all of them.

The measure, SB 374 by Leftist loon Darrell Steinberg(D-Sacramento), also would require anyone who presently owns a weapon of this kind to register them with the state.For a hefty additional fee, of course. The idea is to pass a subsequent bill prohibiting the transfer of these weapons to friends and family, so that eventually they'll disappear through attrition except in the hands of criminals.

The Assembly joined the anti-gun action by passing AB 48, authored by Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, Democrat from Berkeley, (of course) to require the state Department of Justice to notify local law enforcement agencies when someone buys more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition and to ban kits that convert magazines to carry more than 10 rounds. There 's a similar bill making the rounds in the state assembly would ban gun ownership for anyone who conveys a serious threat of violence to a licensed psychotherapist...and would require that therapist to make a subjective judgement on whether to violate Doctor patient confidentiality to report it, or be subject to liability.

The state senate and assembly bills will pretty much guarantee that a lot of people who might benefit from therapy, like vets with post traumatic stress aren't going to seek it for fear of having their rights taken away. The prohibitive fees on ammo and gun ownership will likewise affect the ability of working families to defend themselves and their proerty, and will also disproportionally affect blacks and Latinos. It will also impact single women living alone,unless they're rich enough to afford private protection.

There's absolutely no doubt that these measures will pass both houses of the legislature and be signed into law by Governor Brown.

This is unscientific, but a Los Angeles Times straw poll on whether these measure should become law has 12,655 no votes ( 94%) as opposed to 531 yes votes (6%) as of this morning.

There may very well be legal challenges, as there were in Chicago and Washington DC, but they take time and in the interim Californians will live with laws designed to disarm them and make them defenseless.

You have no right to own something or to do anything that could be a danger to me or my children as far as I'm concerned. I could care less about your macho fetish.

I hope they confiscate every gun out fact, I'd like see the police disarmed except for specially trained squads.

Bravo to California for taking the first steps.

correction in next to last paragraph said...

"12,655 no votes ( 94%) as opposed to 531 yes votes (94%)."

I think you mean 96% to 4%, not 94% to 94%.

To the first poster (Proud idiot):

I hope then, that the gangs and illegal immigrants overrun and devour you "progressives" because you both lack the means and willingness to defend yourselves, and the police are unable to defend you because they both lack the needed tools, and lack the will to do their jobs.

Sweden, when it collapses, will be the future of your "progressive" dystopias.

would you mind posting a link to that straw poll? those numbers look backwards. not to be rude, but are you sure you didn't make that up?

Link is in the first para, as of when I wrote this in the AM.

And BTW "Proud gun-grabber", I will not give up any of my property to satisfy any of your Pie-in-the-sky schemes.

Insanity is the act of doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, and that definition fits gun-grabbers like you very well. The only thing that has changed, is that people have wised up to your little game.

Well, Proud Progressive, I fully support your right to choose to be disarmed. In fact, you should back up your convictions by posting a sign on your home that says 'Gun Free Zone.'

But you LIKEWISE have no right as far as I'm concerned to mandate choices that could injure me or my family by forcing me or anyone else to be disarmed and helpless.
