    California laws suck

    Well, I ordered my Taurus 709 from gunsandsupply.com, just waiting for it to show up. While waiting for the Taurus to arrive, I found an old Russian 1895 Nagant pistol for $80, so I buy that also. I spoke with my local FFL dealer today at breakfast, and he tells me that per California law, I can only purchase one firearm per month. He said he'd hold onto the Nagant until February before I can take possession of it.

    That's a real bummer. Not sniveling, just bummed out.

    It's not just the gun laws here. The tax codes are rather repressive as well.

    It's the result of electing Democrats to public office. California has 10% of the nation's population and 13% of the nation's welfare recipients. Self-perpetuating system, that's called.

    I left in 2006. I miss the beauty of the state, my friends and the weather. I DON'T miss the attitudes, the lack of values, the high taxes or the repressive laws.
    I had more shooting opportunities than any other state I lived in but the laws are REPRESSIVE!

    Your location shows you reside in Texas, so why rant about CA (granted the gun laws are repressive in CA)?

    And gunsandsupply is in Missouri. Either way, yes, CA gun laws do suck. I was stationed there for 5 years and couldn't have been happier to get out.

    Why would the guns laws in Kommiefornia impact your ability to buy a gun in TX. Even if the gun was coming out of Kommiefornia the laws governing your taking position are fed and TX state laws

    Hard to believe that CA was once a solid republican state under the Great Gipper Ronald Reagan.

    Today it is a snapshot of what National Socialism looks like and what the current administration wants to model the rest of the USA.

    What a shame, such a beautiful place, now has turned out to be a state that is bankrupt, corrupt, and repressive to citizens liberties.

    Thanks for ruining the state of CA Nancy "Stretch" Pelosi, Barbara "anti military" Boxer, Diane "Frankenfeinstein", and of course The Arnold "Jerk-inator". Great job these political hacks and losers.

    The only way we can get a Repub. in office here is if they used to be an actor. You know, phony world like the Terminator. (and they can't tell me that his influences don't come from a Kennedy either) The voters here think that they MUST be a great person that does GREAT things because they've been on TV, which is where they get most of their reality. Add that to TV also being the place where they get their outdoor experiences and news.....Bingo! Bills get signed that supposedly are in the best interest of the metropolitan areas. (not talking about Reagan though, he sorta slipped through the cracks. But see? He's been on TV so even California fell for it.)

    I'm in California sure, but I'm glad that I live in an area that is a little more traditional than in the big cities. We do have to put up with restrictive laws like that though. And I'm sure not going to argue with any of you who say that California gun laws aren't the best. But at least it's better than WI or IL. I can CC here. The law that the OP was talking about doesn't apply to long guns though........yet. Let's hope our next Gov. is Meg Whitman (sp??) She has awesome business sense, (proven) and she SEEMS to have common sense as well. And I don't even care if she's R or D, just someone please pull our state out of it's state! I just wish she was an actress.

    ^^^^ Umm, Meg Whitman is ANTI GUN! Has been for a long time regardless of the hoops she's trying to jump through to get elected and what she's saying now.

    The answer to our problems isn't voting in a new governor. It's voting OUT the entire buncha bums in our legislature who don't respect our rights and who can't seem to balance a checkbook.

    Well I'm glad you brought that up because I didn't know where she stood on gun laws. That's why I said it SEEMS like she had common sense. Usually common sense has nothing to do with any new gun laws and I was hoping for the best. Agreed on the voting out the entire bunch of bums! Her stance on guns aside, she does seem to hold the creditials to balance our checkbook though. Truthfully, I don't think we'll ever get the perfect combination of brains in office. Maybe we could get Sarah Palin to run? Someone like her wouldn't be the "entire bunch" but at least they would have that almighty VETO stamp on their desk!

    Boy I'll tell ya, its ridiculous when the criminals can obtain, carry, and wreak havoc with guns so much in Cali, but the law abiding citizens are so scrutinized and made to jump thru so many hoops in order to arm themselves in protection from the gangbangers and homeland terrorist that reside there. YES, Gang-bangers ARE TERRORIST!

    I have family there in the WATTS/So Central LA areas. They consider there neighborhoods warzones, and often feel there is no way to avoid falling victim to so much of the negative crap there. Only way to avoid being a victim is to join the predators. Unless you have the ability to actually move to the suburbs or another state. Some of my relatives did this to give there kids a chance. I used to wanna live in Cali when I was a child. Now I realize that TEXAS is the place for me...PERIOD!
