Legislature assaults ‘right to keep and bear arms’

Add infringement of the Second Amendment “right to keep and bear arms” to a severe anti-business climate as a reason to get out of Dodge, Calif.

The Democratic Supermajority in the state Legislature is advancing 10 bills that almost certainly will pass and be signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. Hypocritically, the Legislators and the governor are protected in the state Capitol by armed state troopers. In your home, your are not. They want to leave you naked before robbers, rapists and killers.

Here’s Times summary, with my comments:

“Among the bills, Sen. Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley) called for outlawing possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines over 10 rounds. The sale of such magazines had been banned, but Hancock said some possessors of the clips have been able to escape prosecution by claiming they were purchased before the law was changed.”

Think the Crips ‘n’ Bloods will follow that one and turn in their large magazines? Of course not.

But the bill will criminalize tens of thousands of honest, decent, otherwise law-abiding citizens who won’t turn in their magazines.

“Senate President Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) proposed a ban on the future sale, purchase and manufacture in California of semi-automatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines. ‘The truth of the matter is that we can save many lives by curbing the proliferation of rapid-fire weapons,’ Steinberg told reporters at the Capitol. “We can save lives by getting guns out of the hands of people who should not have them.”

Again, criminals wouldn’t follow the law. It just would disarm decent citizens. Already, millions of such weapons are owned, legally, in California. If you ban their sale here, people will just buy them in other states with less repression.

“Other measures would boost funding for efforts to confiscate guns from people convicted of felonies and require anyone buying ammunition to get a permit and undergo a background check.”

Felons already can’t own guns. Putting more money into grabbing felons’ buns would add to the state’s fiscal problems.

And ammo can be bought on the Internet from other states. So the law would just kill ammo businesses in California, destroying even more jobs.

    The gang friendly portion of the California legislature financed by foreign gov ts should be treated like horse stealers in the 19th century Western frontier.
