The California Senate, with blatant disregard for their oaths of office, passed a number of anti-self defense
SB396: The mag ban to end all mag bans. Retroactive ban on all magazines over 10 rounds. Regardless of production date or when they were acquired. As a famous CA Senator once said "Mr and Mrs America, turn them in".
This gem requires a background check and defacto ammunition purchase
registry in order to buy a single round of ammunition. Other onerous
requirements are placed upon sellers of ammunition, including sending
ALL sales records to CA Dept of Justice. If that wasn't bad enough, all
sales must be face to face. No more internet sales.
SB47: This bill turns virtually every single semiautomatic rifle in the state of California into a 'assault weapon'. The expanded definitions close so called 'loopholes' such as "bullet buttons" "maglock firearms". Registration would be mandatory and once registered they would be nontransferable, including to heirs. Upon death, they would have to be surrendered to the state. If you live in California, you need to read the bill and realize just how draconian this will be if it passes the house and gets signed off on by the governor.
SB108: A locked door isn't going to be enough in CA anymore. If you don't lock up your firearms when you leave the house, you'll wind up in prison.
SB293: Calling Space Gordon... should anyone ever invent a "owner authorized" handgun, it would be illegal to sell a handgun in California that didn't contain such a 'safety' mechanism 18 months afterwards. No exemptions for spouses... although law enforcement would be exempt from this requirement.
Other bills include: SB299: Lose or have a gun stolen and didn't report it? Guess who is the criminal now? SB363: Live with someone 'prohibited'? No self defense for you!
These are extremely egregious bills. If you live in California, I urge you to contact your representatives in the house: Contact CA Legislators.
