JoshuaPundit: As California continues to release thousands of violent felons from its prisons, the Democrat-dominated State legislature is working to pass legislation to victimize law abiding citizens and make it as difficult as possible to defend themselves.
The Senate and the Assembly are working on passing a number of bills that would severely affect the rights of Californians and give the state the nation’s toughest anti-Second Amendment laws.
The Assembly will hear a bill that would ban all semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines. Since the majority of rifles today are semi-auto, this would ban all rifles except black powder muzzle loaders and bolt action rifles that load each shot individually.They will also hear bills already passed in the State Senate that would make it a crime to leave a gun unlocked when you’re out of the house and make owning a ‘high-capacity magazine’, defined as ten shots or more, illegal, even those that were grandfathered in under the state’s previous gun laws. That will outlaw a number of previously legal handguns, as well as rifles that were previously legal.
The Senate will hear bills passed in the Assembly that would create a state database of all ammunition purchases and require background checks to purchase it, make it a crime to have a gun that’s not locked up when not being carried, and extend the time for which someone is banned from owning firearms after making a violent threat. I’m not certain exactly how ‘violent threat’ is defined, and neither is the bill as of yet.
This is how the elites in California, who all have extensive, tax payer provided security feel about the ‘less worthy’.
California still has what’s known as ‘defense of the castle laws’ wherein you can use deadly force against someone who breaks into your home if you have a reasonable belief they might do you bodily harm.
That might very well be the next to be ‘amended’.
