More of the same. These wackos won't be able to sleep at night until all firearms are made illegal to possess in California.

The sad thing is that there is no logic applied. Just fear and knee jerk reactions with the hope of getting the ban in place before more rational minds take over. Most of the banned items on the AR15's are ridiculous anyway. Please, someone tell me how a pistol grip, flash hider or a folding stock will make an AR15 more dangerous with those items.
Sure, let's just try to create a new felon class of citizens who never hurt anyone while ignoring that open border and drug cartel problem. That aughtta do the trick.

Kind of like putting small bandage on a severed carotid artery. What purpose does it serve, other than to make someone feel like they're doing something useful.

The funny thing is, these high capacity magazines actually saved lives in a way. They jammed. It's a notorious issue with large capacity magazines.
Had they not been available what would have happened? Maybe they would have used home made bombs, maybe they would have had multiple magazines and killed far more people because they are relatively easy to use and don't jam very often.
In the end, these laws will kill more people than they save. Sometimes life is strange that way.

I dont see if all these weapons are so bad and have no legal use, why isnt law enforcement in California upheld to the same standards as its citizens. If citizens cant defend themselves why let LEO's defend themselves. Id be calling for equal gun rights, no in reallity Id leave.
I don't think this is coming just from California. I'm hearing anti gun discussions everywhere I go. People are demanding that laws be enacted to outlaw guns or at least limit the 'Assault' weapons and smaller magazine capacities. We sure didn't need Zimmerman and then two mass shootings in a row. Guns stories are the hot topic in the news.

An unremovable magazine? He'll explain how the dang thing's to be loaded at all, I'm sure ... Bueller ... Bueller?Originally Posted by From the article
All rifles with magazines would be illegal, then, seeing as how any magazine removable via finger or tool would criminalize the owner. (Uh, no that would be Yee, and the Assembly weenies if they sign on for this mess.)So what happens with bullet button weapons that have already been sold? “They would in fact not be in compliance with the law, and so owners would have to take away some of the features if they are going to keep it,” said Yee.
He's right on one point: the original intent was muddy, at the time, though many of us saw it clearly for what it was. If Yee and the Assembly cement this into law, it'll clarify a lot more than magazines.After three months of without comment on the bullet button issue, the Attorney General said in a statement to CBS 5: “I applaud the legislature’s interest in addressing this problem, and support efforts to pass legislation needed to restore the law’s original intent.”
Kafka and Rand were right. Coming to a neighborhood near you ... if we let it.
Quote: “I think, in the capital, people now realize that we have got to do something about these assault weapons, and if there is a leakage in that particular ban then we have got to plug that particular hole.”
I wonder who he is refering to when he says in the capital? He is probably trying to refer to the people of the state, but we all know he is refering to the dirty politicians who want more control.
Walk softly ...
Remember, what happens in California, eventually infects the rest of the nation. For some reason it follows the jet stream.
