California Gun Laws Target Honest Gun Owners

March 18, 2016

California politicians are busy playing politics with people’s lives again.  As usual, particularly in California, their new proposed laws are sure to be a political success, but a horrible failure for the ordinary citizen.  These Socialist Politicians failed in their attempt to outlaw guns directly.  Today they are regulating firearms out of existence in California.police with guns

Socialist legislators ruled that all modern semi-automatic rifles would be classified as “assault weapons” in California.  “Assault weapon”, in this case, is a political term.  It covers rifles that fire a single shot with each pull of the trigger, a design that dates back 130 years.  Relabeling these ordinary firearms as “assault weapons” means politicians can make those guns illegal for civilians to own.  The Socialist politician will say that “assault weapons” are only meant to kill people “extra dead.”  Of course, the politicians are protected by public employees who carry assault weapons.  We are never told why state employees need to kill civilians “extra dead.”

Lectured by tyrants

The cops “patrol rifle” becomes an “assault weapon” if the policeman takes the gun from his car and stores it in his closet at home to protect his family.  So is it a patrol rifle or an assault weapon?  Renaming a common object for political ends is doublethink worthy of George Orwell.

The fact that criminals seldom use semi-automatic rifles in their everyday crime doesn’t register with California Socialist politicians.  The goal of this legislation is to disarm the ordinary citizen and get a good press release.  The bill will likely succeed.  The goal is not public safety.

Remember that criminals don’t obey the law.  That means the only people controlled by the next steaming pile of California legislation are honest citizens.  California Socialists want to eliminate gun ownership.  That isn’t easy to do.  Firearms are extremely simple devices, simpler than most model aircraft or boats.  You can even buy firearms as a kit where you complete and assemble them yourself.  That shocked the delicate sensitivities of California’s elected Socialists.  They demanded that all the materials that could be converted into a gun had to be registered as a firearm.  You can find a Youtube videos of a guy fashioning functional firearms from plumbing supplies or from a shovel.

This legislation passed out of committee.  Congratulations!  You’re now the proud owner of an unregistered water pipe and an assault spade.

Prohibition fails, particularly in California.  The only purpose of the legislation is to snare honest firearms owners.  These laws won’t even slow down the criminals.

You see, criminals don’t go to gun shops or gun shows.  Criminals don’t buy their guns online.  The thugs buy their guns from their friends down the street.  That means criminals don’t apply for a Department of Justice background check like honest gun owners.  The criminals don’t have to wait for the California mandated 10-day waiting period to buy a legal gun.  Another law won’t change how criminals get their guns because criminals already break the law.  We already have 23 thousand firearms regulations that control honest gun owners.. but not criminals.  The only thing that will change criminal behavior is applying the gun laws we already have.  California doesn’t do that.  California releases its criminals from prison early, and often fails to incarcerate repeat felons.

So why do Socialist politicians want to pass these ineffective gun laws?  Governing is hard, but passing new do-nothing legislation is easy.. particularly in an election year.  This legislation makes a great press release.  That is all it has to do; get the politician’s name in the news.

California Socialists also want to stop you from buying more than one long-gun in 30 days if you’re an honest gun owner.  That bill won’t stop the criminals or the terrorists, but it sure makes a great headline for the uninformed mainstream media.

That legislation won’t stop the criminals for a minute.  You see the border with Mexico is wide open.  Criminals move drugs, illegal immigrants, and child sex slaves across the border and into California’s sanctuary cities every day.  Moving guns across the border is trivial for them.  Illegal guns are cheaper than legal ones.  Think about that.

A California bill demands that stores have a video record of every bullet they sell, or the store owner is driven out of business.  A state that can’t find millions of illegal immigrants is going to know where every single bullet is located.

Sure it is.

No, these new laws are designed to ensnare honest firearms owners and the gun industry.  The legislation is useful as an election campaign slogan.  It guarantees campaign contributions from anti-gun groups.

Did I mention that there is a proposal to make it illegal to transport your legally owned guns into California from out of state?  That is another law that hampers honest gun owners, but won’t bother the criminals one bit.

All this might change if California gun owners would vote.  Illegal aliens vote in California,  but gun owners can’t be bothered.

    This is why the president wants to put his anti second amendment man on the S.Ct. All semi auto weapons become so called assault rifles. How special that the timing of Scalia’s death coincides with the California legislature’s continuing schemes to undermine the second amendment.
