WE ARE ALL CALIFORNIANS NOW!
Ammo Land ^ | Feb 8, 2013 | Ammoland staff

Posted on 02/08/2013 8:30:53 AM PST by EXCH54FE

United States --(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, California politicians held a press conference to introduce the most draconian gun control civilian disarmament bill seen to date in this country. Seeking to exploit the tragedy of Newtown to achieve a political end, lawmakers introduced a bill that is completely filled with unconstitutional and extreme measures aimed at nothing other than the disarmament of law abiding Americans.

The list includes placing extreme financial burdens on gun owners by requiring them to pay what are essentially “poll taxes” on firearms and ammunition purchases as well as requiring liability insurance, annual certifications, and licensing of gun ownership. Standard self defense and hunting ammunition are now classified as “assault bullets” and are felonious violations for everyone except law enforcement. Almost every currently manufactured semi-automatic firearm in existence – and countless bolt action hunting rifles – are now a prohibited device merely because they have the ability to accept detachable magazines. Certain firearms such as shotguns are being redefined to make them prohibited under the new law even if they dont meet the legal requirements to be prohibited. The list goes on and on.

With this despicable new law the ruling class politicians in California have drawn a line in the sand and have now shown everyone that they believe that the Bill of Rights is a privilege that they grant to their subjects. It is now painfully obvious that they believe that they grant us our rights, and that they can proportion them out as they see fit. That they can amend our rights whenever they get the whim and however they wish. If that does not scare you as an American then you have no pulse, because as goes the second amendment so goes every other freedom that this great country has to offer…

I can no longer consider myself ‘law-abiding’. I will henceforth consider myself ‘peaceable’.......for now.

First, we’re not all Kommiefornians. I know Im not for sure. Second, I have NO sympathy what so ever for gun owners there. They’ve been AWOL for the last decade or 2 happy to swallow every foolish infringement of the 2A. I would imagine some %age also votes D. Well, good luck and don’t come calling. In fact stay put, the other states don’t want to be infested by cowards and Ds. Also the weather is horrible everywhere else.

You haven't noticed a similar phenomenon happening on a national level? Conservatives are not showing up to the polls in national elections, AND those who are showing up are being cheated by election fraud across the country.

If you have any illusions that this nation will last more than another decade or so, you only need to look carefully at history to realize how wrong you are.

Your not speaking for half of Kummiefornia. There are rural communities like here in Placerville in El Dorado County who will not submit,will not give up and we have a sherrif backing us up here. There will be blood in Sacramento if they start making LEGAL citizens into Criminals.

“If that does not scare you as an American then you have no pulse, because as goes the second amendment so goes every other freedom that this great country has to offer… and as goes California, so goes the rest of the country.”

The article was generally a good one, but on this point the author may be wrong.

We have reached the point where “what goes on in California” (or in New York or Illinois, for that matter) no longer portends what will happen in, say, Oklahoma or Wyoming.

This is because the nation has grown so divided, and because those divisions continue to grow deeper. We are no longer “a unified nation” beyond that which is “for show”.

California is a deep-blue state (as are the states of the Northeast, Illinois, Maryland, etc.), and now totally controlled by the left. There’s actually a very good chance that this gun grab -will- pass within California. That doesn’t mean it’s going to pass in Arizona, or Texas, or in the other red states.

As the nation (at least the federal government) marches towards a quasi-totalitarian “controlled” state, it is the blue states that seem to be at the forefront. We are witnessing their rush to establish [what they claim to be] “security”, at the expense of personal liberty.

Yet at the same time, the red states are moving in exactly the opposite direction — seeking to establish protections at the state level which further enhance the original intent of The Founders.

The nation’s “house” is literally dividing before us.

How long will it continue to stand?

The proposal to compel gun owners to purchase insurance
is laughable. They attempt to compare gun insurance to auto
insurance. Excuse me but driving is a privilege while gun
ownership is a right. Insurance requirement is an undue
restriction on a right.

Folks shouldn’t get their panties in a twist over gun laws. Ignore
them where you can. I do. The whole thrust of the 2nd A in-
volves breaking the law when a tyrannical government makes
it necessary. Mass disobedience works for them. Why not us?

I do find humor in politicians who do things that they know nothing about and then find out that they did something they don't like and can't live with.

For example, if they require firearm liability insurance what do they really think will happen.

Right now through the NRA you can get “Self-Defense Insurance as a rider to the Excess Personal Liability coverage” that is offered through the NRA to members.

I would guess that law-abiding Californian will reach out to the NRA for some of their specialized insurance needs, and that will increase the ranks of NRA members in California and the political clout of the NRA in California.

It this really a smart thing for Dem's to do? It will financially hurt a lot of law abiding people and a lot of people will just go bare like they do on auto insurance. So the law on insurance might make a few lawyers rich and a few firearm owners to give up their firearms, but the major effect will likely be to drive people into the arms of the NRA.

Fascinating.

All these bills will pass because California now has a democrat supermajority in the State legislature, and the governor is a Cuomo clone on guns.

You were saying?...

CALIFORNIA'S ASSAULT WEAPONS LAW HAS BEEN LARGELY IGNORED:

...According to Bob Drake, chief of the state Bureau of Justice Information Services, only 5,150 of the estimated 200,000 to 300,000 assault weapons in the state have been registered since California became the first state in the nation to ban sales of the military style guns last January...

NON COMPLIANCE - Why haven’t Californians registered all their assault weapons?:

...Now we learn that out of California’s population of 35 million people, only 27,000 "assault weapons" have been registered, even though it is estimated that there are 500,000 to 1 million legally owned assault weapons in California...

True. It was a Republican who, first gave his word he would not confiscate the SKSs, then when it came time for election he turned his back on his promise and demanded SKS owners turn in their weapons.

It wouldn't be the first time a supposedly conservative Republican lawmaker turned against their conservative constituents.

I seem to remember a good ol' boy from Tennessee who was holding hearings on Chinagate, (read: Sen. Fred Thompson (R-TN) "investigating" Bill Clinton's espionage) then rolled over and shut down the hearings when the heat was turned up.

Then, when it came time to vote for conviction during Clinton's impeachment trial, good ol' boy, Fred Thompson voted against the conviction.

I guess California has no monopoly on traitors in office, do they?

Registration Means Confiscation in California & Connecticut:

...During his run for Governor in 1997, Former (Republican) Attorney General Dan Lungren reversed his own earlier decision about the SKS Sporter. Bowing to political pressure, he declared them illegal, thus demonstrating that the trust of SKS owners was misplaced...

...The California DOJ has admitted they have records, they know who own these firearms through the registration process, and have ordered seizure and/or prosecution by law enforcement agencies throughout the State.

Well, youre going to get your chance to count. I hear the loonies that the electorate voted in are seriously considering confiscation. Will it end w/ a whimper from KA gun owners (most likely) or will you push back in a way the police and brown shirts remember?

Bravely spoken. What action have you taken to push back against government corruption?
