People’s republic of CA: register that ammo!
The gun-grabbers are really going all out here:
A group of bills moving through California’s assembly and senate–including one to create a database for ammunition purchases–could create the strictest gun control laws of any state in the union.
According the San Jose Mercury News, the bills being heard in the state senate on August 12 would create a database of all ammo purchases in the state, “make it crime to have a gun that’s not locked up when it’s not being carried, and extend the time for which someone is banned from owning a firearm after making a violent threat.”
– which is to try and leave the law-abiders unable to defend themselves as the state has been releasing (over the last 2 years) violent people from state prison, and the Feds are demanding another 10,000 prisoners released before the end of this year.
Do NOT be fooled by the “low-level” prisoners will be released schtick … what there was of them have been already released under AB109. And the “elderly prisoner” misdirect means anyone 60 or older. I don’t know about you, but 60 isn’t exactly hobbling around with a walker unable to commit crime.
This state is SO doomed.
So. Here’s how I read this, then. The Democrat legislature wants to make it onerous and invasive for law abiding citizens to purchase ammunition; wants those without carry permits (and I’m sure those are easy to come by in CA) who own guns to render them essentially useless, locked away when not being held or holstered on one’s person, reducing their value in a sudden home invasion; wants to increase the number of people disallowed from owning a firearm by using “violent threats” — a vague category if ever there was one — as a way to strip them of their rights; and they wish to do all this while releasing confirmed criminals back into the population at large.
Yield? Crime goes up, citizens demand more protection, Democrats call for higher taxes to beef up police forces, and the people of California become poorer and even more dependent on state functionaries for their very safety, functionaries that are under no legal obligation to protect you.
Wow. Is it any wonder they keep winning the state?
I mean, free diapers for all California residents can’t be far behind, because who doesn’t want to just lay back and let the government own you, body and soul, in exchange for the mirage of safety and security?
My advice to you Californians still resisting the effort to turn your state into a satellite sympathizer of the old Soviet Union? Buy your ammo out of state, “lock up” your guns in a Ziplock baggie, and then invest in bear traps and sandbags.
Because we just can’t count on the next big one to dump the whole failed experiment into the sea. At least, not with any kind of precision time table.
And nuking it from orbit is out of the question. Unless another country does it. In which case, that’s forgivable. Blowback. America’s chickensssss…..coming home to rooooooooost!
