New gun laws firing in 2014

New gun laws firing in 2014

Feinstein gunThe New Year brings a fusillade of new gun laws Californians must follow. Capital Public Radio reports:

Some California gun owners say they’re confused about the new gun laws that will take effect in 2014. 

The law causing the most confusion doesn’t take effect in 2014.  It will ban lead ammunition for hunting when it takes effect in 2016.  

At the Just Guns store in Sacramento, Troy Alvarez was picking up three boxes of ammunition for target shooting over Christmas break.  The ammo is legal, but the magazine he currently has for his pistol will be illegal July 1st.  A new law bans magazines with more than ten bullets.

“I’m not real familiar of, with the new law as it applies to maybe grandfathered pistols and clip size,” Alvarez says.

All sales of ten-round clips will be illegal January 1st.

The group Gun Owners of California says it will likely take legal action to prevent  enforcement of the law. 

Also in January, people who buy long guns must register them and pass a safety test.

New York state has imposed such a law on long guns for several years now. When it further tightened gun laws with its “SAFE” law, the gun registry lists were used to go out and seize the formerly legal guns of citizens. Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised the seizures wouldn’t happen because of the law. But the Blaze reports:

Despite promises from the president and a host of other politicians who are pushing for more gun control that nobody is coming for your guns, the confiscation of guns and gun permits has apparently started in some form in New York State. One attorney representing several people who have been forced to surrender their guns spoke with TheBlaze and alerted us to some disturbing facts:

  • Gun owners are losing their 2nd Amendment rights without due process.
  • HIPAA Laws are likely being compromised and the 4th and 5th Amendments are being violated in some of these cases

How did confiscation start happening so quickly? Apparently the gun grabbing was triggered by something inside the NY SAFE Act — New York’s new gun law — that has a provision apparently mandating confiscation of weapons and permits if someone has been prescribed psychotropic drugs.

People considered “insane” include those who have been prescribed anti-anxiety drugs. Such drugs also are part of some dieting regimens. So someone needing to lose a few pounds after holiday feasting could end up with his guns seized.

    Could someone answer this question for me?

    If more gun laws worked to prevent gun violence and gun crime, why is Chicago the gun crime and murder capital of the United States when the City of Chicago had the strictest (virtual ban) gun laws in America?

    Thanks to whomever can clear that up for me.

      No amount of gun control is going to eliminate gun violence, just as laws that are written against murder has done little to stop those that kill.

      All the state wants is quite compliance to their bureaucracies and decrees under the threat of death by costume clad officials if a protest is raised. 🙂

        Yes, Donkey.

        The notion of ‘gun control’ in the USA is about as dumb as it gets. There are over 300 million civilian firearms outstanding in America. lol. About one firearm for every man, woman and child. lol. If they outlawed guns tomorrow the only ones who would turn in their guns to the authorities would be the naive obedient ones. The criminals would never comply. Just like the criminals haven’t complied in the gun murder capital of America – Chicago – where guns are banned. lol. Plus, the criminals would know that the obedients ones would have no means with which to protect themselves. Home invasions, retail holdups and street pistol whippings would skyrocket.

        Do you think Feinstein or Boxer are escorted around with unarmed security? lol.

          Both Feinstein and Boxer are puppets for the oligarchs that seek enslavement of the American people, in California we can clearly see what this will entail. It will all collapse though when the EBT fails to payout!! 🙂

    “All sales of ten-round clips will be illegal January 1st”

    ?????????????????

    It’s my understanding that the sale of clips or magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammo has been illegal in California since the early 2000’s.

    But the sale of 10 round clips are legal and will remain legal in California.

    If somebody has other information, please advise.

    “This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized nation has complete gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.” Adolph Hitler 1938
    It is estimated that 200 to 260 million people were killed by their own left wing governments in the 20th century and after first being disarmed. Don’t think it could happen here? Well, it already did. In the 19th century millions of Native American were slaughtered by the US Army after being disarmed. If they did it to them, they would have no compunction about doing it to you and me. Never ever give up your firearms. Never! They are the only thing that stands between freedom and genocide. That is historical fact, not some liberal Bull Sh*t. 🙂

      The US government could never actually take guns away from law-abiding citizens. Heck, there are over 300 million civilian firearms across the nation. That barn door got opened long ago and those horses are long gone. But what it could do (and is currently doing) is come up with more draconian laws and taxes to make it extremely inconvenient and expensive to own a gun legally. You know….like they’ve done with cigarettes vis-a-vis smoking bans on beaches, in parks, in buildings and some HOA’s are even prohibiting people from smoking in their own homes! lol. And then they tax smokers to the hilt charging $8-$15 for a pack of 20 cigarettes depending on where you live! lol. They make it so expensive that a lot of smokers can’t afford it, throw their arms up and quit. Eventually, I think they will make tobacco a controlled substance. I heard some states now require citizens to re-register their guns annually with big registration fees. lol. So there you go. I guess they figured the peasants rolled over on cigarettes and will do the same with their guns. More frogs in the pot stuff. lol.

      Thought you should know that Hitler never said that… It’s an urban legend. The thought of it is nice for people afraid of the gubmint and O’stinky…

      I just bought two long guns today so I wouldn’t have to register them – Das California

        Hiter did confiscate guns from jewish people taking away any means that they had to protect themselves against being separated from their loved ones and loaded into cattlecars and transported to death camps.

        So Hitler did teach us some basic elements of how fascist governments work.

        It would be wise never to forget those teachings.

        Jon D, thanks for the info, but I don’t trust anything that gets authenticated by left-wing propaganda websites.

        I have read enough books on Hitler and his henchmen to understand that this was the very type of thinking that ran through his mind. The quote did come from an email, who knows though. 🙂

    Oh, btw. If you happen to be a member of the media elite and one of the ‘circle the wagon’ boys like David Gregory you can possess and display an illegal high-capacity assault rifle magazine on a nationally syndicated program airing from the District of Columbia where it’s supposed to be a serious felony and walk away totally unscathed. Not even a slap on the hand.

    But God help you if you got pulled over for a rolling stop in DC and had one of those illegal magazines laying on the back seat of your car in plain view. lol.

    This is what is meant by ‘two sets of laws’ in America. And this is what erodes the trust, faith and integrity of ‘equality under the law’ in what was once considered the bastion of fairness and justice across the globe.

    Once justice is applied unevenly we are no longer a constitutional republic.
