      They’re going to have to pull this out of the California Penal Code dust bin….

      “37. (a) Treason against this state consists only in levying war against it, adhering to its enemies, or giving them aid and comfort,
      and can be committed only by persons owing allegiance to the state. The punishment of treason shall be death or life imprisonment without possibility of parole. The penalty shall be determined pursuant toSections 190.3 and 190.4.
      (b) Upon a trial for treason, the defendant cannot be convicted unless upon the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or upon confession in open court; nor, except as provided in Sections
      190.3 and 190.4, can evidence be admitted of an overt act not expressly charged in the indictment or information; nor can the defendant be convicted unless one or more overt acts be expressly alleged therein.

      38. Misprision of treason is the knowledge and concealment of treason, without otherwise assenting to or participating in the crime. It is punishable by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170.”

      Not a bad idea. Increasing the amount of non-democrat voters in the big red state of Texas counteracts the amount of illegals being shipped to Texas. I think those in California who are conservative should leave, there’s no hope there, but circling the wagons in other states can keep the same from happening in places like Colorado.

      1. avatar Roymond says:

        At the moment Texas gun owners should be focusing on immigrants from Mexico, who at present have every reason to understand just how valuable the right to keep and bear arms is. Get them aware, get them armed, get them standing fast.

          The Cartels have got to LOVE these new laws. When it’s time for them to make their move, they will not have to worry about well-armed citizens. The police there will flee, as they have in the past.

          It will be a “Safety For None” slaughter.

          Here we go with the ignorant xenophobia again. Little do Conservatives realize they are their own worst enemies. Its the Greed Monger Businessmen (most are Republicans) that have been luring illegals here for decades and decades. They are used as slave labor with no benefits , paid part time sub-minimum wage and have no retirement or holidays. All guaranteed because the corrupt Businessmen pay off their prostitutes the Republicans so that no immigration reform or guest worker programs can be passed (like they have in civilized European countries). And of course history has shown for the last 2,500 years (example Roman Empire) that immigration has always been a boost to a countries economy and when immigration is cut off (as they did in a Rome during a downturn in the economy due to graft and corruption) that the lack of immigrants actually destroyed the Roman Empire.

          The average Conservative Moron does not realize that far from supporting immigrants they are supporting you. They pay millions of tax dollars into the system and are not eligible for Social Security Retirement or income tax returns all lowering your tax bills and extending the solvency of Social Security programs. And your produce food bills are lower because the immigrant slave labor works for nothing thereby lowering your prices paid in the super market.

          And of course immigrants are far more likely to eventually start their own businesses and be more successful at it and they cannot run businesses by themselves they have to hire people to help them taking unemployed people off of welfare. Most people on welfare or just looking for jobs in the U.S. are actually White legal citizens not illegals from other countries.

          In the lower Michigan and upper Ohio States Muslim stores are everywhere and often in parts of big cities where White businessmen fear to tread. They provide valuable services to the city residents by running stores in their area. And they have stores though out the upper class white suburbs as well. In Hamtramck Michigan they run the entire city council. Not bad considering the average Moron Conservative thinks they never assimilated. I as a white man wish I could have been just half as successful in such a short period of time as the Muslim immigrants have been. My Dentist, my mailman and my Doctor are guess what, Muslims. So the joke is on the Xenophobic Moron Conservatives as they have been wrong about immigrants since Benjamin Franklin said “the damn German immigrants will destroy America”. Hilarious back then as it is today. The Klu Klux Klan must have been directly related to old xenophobic Ben F.

    California moves one step closer to a police state…

    Once upon a time, I believed that clearly Unconstitutional laws would be successfully challenged and tossed by the Supreme Court. Now not so sure…

    1. avatar Another Two Months says:

      The majority of the people of California are obviously fine with these new laws. Who are we to criticize?

      1. avatar Marcus (Aurelius) Payne says:

        Ummm…the laws are illegal. That’s what unconstitutional means: illegal. Plus it creates a population complacent with this sort of thing who will shortly be bringing their political beliefs to your state as the CA economy implodes.

        I’d say criticism is warranted.

        1. avatar SkippingDog says:

          Funny you should make such a claim, since the Supreme Court just ruled that assault weapon bans are completely acceptable under our Constitution.

      2. avatar John says:

        The majority of Californians wanted to ban gay marriage, too. In a constitutional republic, the majority does not always rule.

        How about if the majority were in favor of throwing a class of otherwise law abiding and peaceable people off of buildings. Should the courts not step in and protect those people’s rights?

        Rights are rights. All should be protected. The courts are hopelessly biased against fundamental individual liberties and towards the Government amassing more control.

        1. avatar DaveW says:

          We the People have rights to LIFE, liberty, etc. Tossing people off of buildings would violate the right to life.

        The majority in the South were fine with slavery and then segregation.

        1. avatar DaveW says:

          And the Democrats were the voice of the south. They still want to keep people enslaved. The only difference is they want to enslave anyone and everyone, and they portray themselves as the party of individual rights.

          We are one step closer to a second revolution. Meanwhile Civil Disobedience will increase.

          You ignore the political process which placed these people in power.

        2. Indeed.

        4. avatar Anonymous says:

          The problem, two months, is that the majority is taking away the rights of the minority. The state of California is a big state. And basically, the east coast culture is dictating what kind of culture, and rights, the rest of the state is allowed.

        5. avatar Another Two Months says:

          The majority is electing non-freedom loving politicians who then shit all over your rights with impunity, then don’t give a crap if you don’t like it. Then they get reflected. Seriously, move away from these people.

        6. Why did not civil rights activists merely move away from the segregationists?

        7. Just like those Montgomery bus boycotters simply should have moved away from those people who wanted to keeop them in the back of the bus?

    3. avatar cisco kid says:

      The Supreme Court is a Dictatorship that has shit on the Constitution and the Second Amendment for decades. Its nothing new. With Scalia gone all hell has broken loose. They have banned concealed carry,(except for the ruling elite just as is done in North Korea) , they have ruled that banning any and all weapons is Constitutional by upholding the East Cost Gun bans that were enacted after Sandy Hook. “The Peoples Republic of California has banned high capacity magazines along with a raft of other bills and Hawaii has placed all gun owners on the FBI most wanted criminal hit list. All this has happened within the last month. Think you have any gun rights or any other Constitutional rights, if you do your living in a dream world. You have none except what the Dictatorial Supreme Court grants you on any particular day which of course they will eventually take away from you.

      1. avatar cisco kid says:

        And I forgot mention that all gun owners in Hawaii are now on the FBI Criminal Watch List and of course the Dictatorial Supreme Court will uphold it as they will uphold the coming No fly No buy list which is conviction from a secret hit list without due process, a clear violation of the Constitution but when did the Constitution ever stop the Dictatorial Supreme Court, they laugh at the Constitution as they are the law of the land above all of us troglodyte worker slaves. Kim Jug Un has modeled his courts after ours because he knows when it comes to corruption nothing beats the U.S. Supreme Court as it sets the world standard for Dictatorships,

  5. avatar Another Two Months says:

    This is obviously what the people of California want for their state. Democracy as usual. Deal with it or leave. Each state has it’s pluses and minuses. Mine has good gun laws but the weather sucks. Life is all about choices. Everybody chooses where they wake up in the morning. Stop whining.

          BS! This isn’t what a majority of the citizens of the State of the California want. It’s what the Ultra-Liberal politicians from Los Angeles and the Bay Area want. None of the politicians who either sponsored the bills or voted for them listened to their constituents who by far told them to vote *against* the bills.

          I foresee a spate of lawsuits coming down the pipe to overturn all of these rules and regulations.

        3. avatar Paulii says:

          To think that everything a legislator does is due to the “will of the people’ is to be willfully ignorant. Do ALL Americans want open borders because “we” elected Obama, and our current Congress? Did ALL or even a majority of Americans want OBAMACARE, with all of the lies needed to convince Democrat legislators to vote it in?

          Being intentionally ridiculous doesn’t add to the conversation. There are MILLIONS of democrats and republicans in CA that do not agree with this lawless administration, and the first step will be lawsuits to challenge the constitutionality of this clear overreach.

    4. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      Another Two Months,

      First of all, the United States of America is a Constitutionally limited republic, NOT a democracy. As for California specifically as a state, I would hope the same. At any rate, a majority consensus for just about anything is fine until that consensus sends government out to deprive people of their rights.

      If 95% of Californians voted to imprison all people of Asian descent, would that be kosher since it had overwhelming support? Hopefully, you will answer “no” to this question. Likewise, a majority of Californians wanting government to stick it to firearms owners is not kosher.

      3. avatar cisco kid says:

        The Constitution is an obscene joke and always has been. During WWII Japanese Americans were imprisoned in concentration camps and lost their homes and businesses. Where in the hell was the Supreme Court then? In the pocket of a Dictator President who came very close to arresting all Italian Americans as well and would have also gotten away with that as well. Popular opinion also sanctioned the outrage and the Supreme Courts was well aware of the popular opinion of the time so they did nothing about it. The Bill of Rights is a joke and always has been. Ditto for the Second Amendment and the entire Constitution. The Dictatorial Supreme Court is just what is says it is, Supreme and they do anything they wish and yes they do indeed often follow popular opinion. Many minorities for decades had their rights raped under the Supreme Court. Many people were not even allowed to marry whom they wished as the Supreme Court never struck down various Conservative marriage laws that did not allow inter racial marriage as well as the right to attend a school of ones choice or work in a place of ones choice. How soon we forget that violations of Constitutional rights is not something new nor is it at an end either rather it seems in some areas to be getting worse, read that the now defunct Second Amendment which is not now worth the paper it is printed on, zero, zilch, Nada!!!!!

      Your logic is stupid, sir. Did you want Obama as president? Do you want Loretta Lynch “deciding” the innocence or guilt of Hillary Clinton? Did you want Fast and Furious to happen? Do you want your healthcare costs to go up because of Obamacare? Do you want insecure borders?

      Sometimes I don’t know who is worse: holier than thou gun owners on TTAG who bash gun owners in other states, who’ve fought these measures, or statist politicians who will push these same gun laws in different states. Not to mention we could get Hillary for POTUS and she’ll happily push for these laws right at your front door. Maybe that’s what you want.

      Gun owners should be united. Every one should be an NRA / FPC / GOA member. Instead, we have folks like you. Thanks so much for your “patriotism” and encouraging the anti-gunners by bashing gun owners in their states. With friends like you having enemies is redundant.

      1. avatar Another Two Months says:

        This is what the people of California want, via voting for the present politicians. I can’t stop that.

          This is what perhaps the “majority” of the people of california want. Screw those minorities right? Avoidance of a Ochlocracy is why the founders made the US a republic, not a democracy.

          Also, if Hilary is elected, then the majority of Americans have spoken as to the type of country they desire. I will deal with it by living in a locale that suits my lifestyle, the same as everybody else.

          What locale is that? I would really like know. You mean a different country? Lol. What do you mean “everyone else?” How do you know everyone else is going to do that?

          So what you are saying is we are living in a Ochlocracy and should accept that, and we should always cater to the majority because that is what is “best.” Even though, the majority may at any time decide to imprison you based on their opinions, take your rights away from you, take your belongings, really take from you, whatever they desire, and you should oblige because the majority is right. Also – you deserve it – because your neighbors voted for them?

        2. avatar Anonymous says:

          Please contemplate for a moment that the US house of representatives is based on the population of a state. The Senate is not. It is fixed based on the state (two per state). That means in the senate a senator from Idaho ( a state with a minuscule population compared to California has the same voting power as a senator from California. This protects the rural minority. This type of government is non-existent within the California state government which has two houses of representatives, where the majority rules.

          Do you seriously believe that minorities should have no rights? If their rights are taken, then it is justified because the majority knows best and if you are part of that group, you should pull the pacifist card and go move somewhere else?

          Not really. This is how the people of the US have historically lived their lives and that life was based on the constitution and the preservation of freedom. The modern democrat is a social liberal extremist with a dash of marxism and socialism. They stem from european ideologies.

          The united states is the last modern advanced civilization built on a foundation of freedom and capitalism. If democrats don’t like that, they have 192 other countries to choose from. We on the other hand have zero other countries to choose from. This is the last country truely like that. Which other country – any country – allows ownership of firearms like this country (for example)?

Now just imagine Texas if it would Texit — no more IRS, no more Feinstein or Reid trying to challenge what you can and cannot do, no more Supreme Court rulings that enshrine Affirmative Action as public policy… and simultaneously, Kalifornia and the remaining states would then be freed to pass whatever the hell insane laws they want, because Texas’ 38 electoral votes wouldn’t be there to annoyingly stop them.

      What we need here is a peaceful, negotiated separation where both parties get exactly what they want, and then let the chips fall where they may.

        Except you would still have the Governor and Lt Governor trying to institute their version of Sharia Law to conform to their peculiar religious views. At least right now the Supreme Court can declare them unconstitutional and protect the people of Texas from them somewhat.

    It is SCOTUS that does not have any stones. If they really want to be the final arbiter of what is and is not Constitutional then they need to put some teeth in their rulings. How long has D.C. dragged its feet on the Heller decision? SCOTUS has not enforcement arm.

    We need an Article V convention and one of the amendments presented should be the absolute requirement that any state found by SCOTUS to have passed an unconstitutional law must repeal said law immediately on receiving the SCOTUS opinion or be ejected from the Union. It stands to reason that if they are willing to pass blatantly unconstitutional laws they are no longer part of the Union anyway and have effectively seceded without making a formal statement of the fact.

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      Rather than ejecting a state from the union, simple application of the federal statute “Deprivation of rights under color of law” would do the trick when applied to the politicians and bureaucrats who enacted/enforced such nonsense.

      Of course this requires that government limit government which is not in government’s own interest. It is up to us, We the People, to limit government.

    2. avatar RealityCheck says:

      >> SCOTUS has not enforcement arm. <<

      Uh, yeah. By design. You're damn right SCOTUS doesn't have an enforcement arm, nor should they have. Do you really want 9 folks deciding AND ENFORCING what happens in this country?!?!?

      Congress legislates. SCOTUS interprets. And Executive executes/enforces. That's the way it was set up, on purpose, to keep the powers separate.

  12. avatar ColdNorth says:

    How does California define a “Large Capacity Ammunition Magazine”? A quick search says:

    “A “large capacity magazine” is defined as any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds, but does not include any .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device, any feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than ten rounds, or any tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action firearm.”

    The reason I ask is because in Canada the law is that the magazine cannot hold more than 5 or 10 rounds of the ammunition it was designed for. That’s why .50 Beowulf magazines are popular, as you can fit up to 15 rounds of .223 in them. Without the clarification of ammunition it was designed for, you’ll end up with ridiculous things like 2 round Beowulf mags.

    Has that been established, or is it one of those grey areas to catch out gun owners?

    Also, the ammo registry has to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen.

    1. avatar JohnS says:

      Pretty much grey.

      If it came to a court battle, I expect about 50/50 on 10-round Beowolf mags being acceptable; it would help to actually have a Beowolf upper, I think.

      But, so far as I am aware, not yet tested.

      1. avatar Sunshine_Shooter says:

        Like you said, 50/50. The problem is when they take a 10 round .308 Pmag, push the lower down 1 inch and place 11 rounds of .22LR inside of it, then declare it as a high capacity magazine, thus making it illegal. Half would see that as a failing of the law, the other half as a way to make more stuff illegal.

Not only can you not buy an AR-15 pattern rifle after Dec. 31, 2016 in the state, but if you already have one, you have to register it (again if bought after Jan. 1, 2014 when they started their long-gun registry) and when you die, you can’t leave it to your kids if they live in California.

        Prediction. A letter will go out to all CA gun owners. You’ll have to sign saying you do not have a rifle with a bullet button. If you do pay 20 dollars and register it. If you lie (they know you have a rifle) the take ALL your arms and deny any gun our shades for ten years.

      2. avatar JohnS says:

        “(again if bought after Jan. 1, 2014 when they started their long-gun registry) ”

        That’s how they’ll know you have a gun they think you should register – but all of those not recorded in detail, before 2014, also must be registered.

        New subsection of 30900:
        “(b) (1) Any person who, from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2016, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined in Section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be readily removed from the firearm with the use of a tool, shall register the firearm before January 1, 2018, but not before the effective date of the regulations adopted pursuant to paragraph (5), with the department pursuant to those procedures that the department may establish by regulation pursuant to paragraph (5).”

        Jan 2001 was the effective date of guns with ‘features’ but the end of registration; ‘bullet buttons’ are now valueless with 30515 (b)
        “(b) For purposes of this section, “fixed magazine” means an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action.”

I mean, I’m just being honest here, what the founders said about “watering the tree of liberty,” politicians today, would call that “domestic terrorism.” Once particular politicians understand that they might be “eliminated” when they follow the majority, they would think twice about what they think to pass.

    I am a resident of CA. What you need to understanding and maybe not understand is this is really a tipping point. The goal is really not confiscation but Infringement! They have worked year after year on this. Each law that is passed keeps chipping away where it becomes more difficult to own a Firearm. The laws on the books now make it all most impossible to now own a gun. Such as CA Safe Handgun Roster which makes it impossible for manufactures to sell new handguns in CA. Now Semiautomatics rifles banned. Ammunition can no longer be purchase on line it has to go to an FFL. So no new handguns, no new rifles, no ammunition and that’s !! It over and people just say Fuck It. So what is the tipping point as new generations come along they cannot get into shooting because it is to much of a hassle. Since there is no new generations exposed to guns they will be perfectly OK with more resections. A Good example of the Gun Grabbers playbook is the way the government has went after Tobacco. Today Tobacco is hard to get and not social acceptable. So what is next as time goes on upcoming politicians will say if it has worked for CA then it will work for the rest of the USA and it is time for sensible reform and we need to repel the 2nd Amendment. Sure you can move to another state but the chipping will keep on coming. As I said before you need to be Politically Active by joining the NRA and FPC.

    1. avatar DerryM says:

      @JohnnyL I agree with what you are saying about “chipping away” at gun rights in California. Personally, I think the tyrants in Sacramento will work at driving shooting ranges out of business next.

  39. avatar strych9 says:

    Normally I would say that I don’t care about this at all. California gets the government it deserves.

    However, in this case I will make an exception specifically due to the nature of one of these laws, specifically SB 1446.

    Putting the 2A aside for a moment, that law is an ex post facto law, specifically prohibited to be passed by Congress by Article 1, Section 9 and specifically prohibited to be passed by any state by Article 1, Section 10. That makes this a pretty big deal if it’s allowed to stand.

    Further, the law specifically states that the state will not reimburse any citizen for the cost of any magazine destroyed. That is a direct violation of the 5A in both that they are losing property without due process of law and that they are losing property without just compensation. Again, a big deal if it’s allowed to stand.

    Now, personally I could care less about the people of California. They have proven time and time again that they are, at best, semi-retarded children. They wantonly discard their own rights and therefore I have no time for them. I will not spend a dime nor a moment of my time in an attempt to help people who are self-destructive in this manner.

    This however, if allowed to stand, sets enormously dangerous precedents that can and will be expanded on by the Federal Government. This goes way beyond the 2A and strikes at the core of our Constitutional Republic. Therefore it cannot be allowed to stand.

    I see two possible solutions. The country can jettison California or this must be struck down. Any judge, at any level including the SCOTUS, that votes to uphold SB1446 should be removed from the bench immediately.

    1. avatar Jeremy says:

      It was allowed in NY under the “Safe Act.” People had to sell their mags or move them out of state or turn them over to the police. They also had to register their “assault weapons.” Google the number of people that registered its funny.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        New York is another state that I have written off, but I wasn’t aware they were required to turn in/destroy/get rid of mags over a certain size and that there was no option to grandfather current owners. Usually things like this require some sort of registration but grandfather people in specifically because the lawyers that advise the authors of such legislation know that it’s very unlikely for an outright blanket ban on current owners to survive a legal challenge.

        As for registration of certain types of rifles, while I oppose such laws I suspect a solid legal argument can be made for them based on previous SCOTUS rulings on the topic of firearms ownership. That said, no argument can be made for ex post facto laws or those that abridge the 5A/14A.

CA doesn’t require a gun you already own to be registered per se, they have just stuck registration to the process of purchasing (handguns in 1923, private party handguns in 93, out of state import 98, rifles 2014).

    Woohoo!! We did it! We passed the perfect laws to stop all the violence in California! WOOOOOOOOO!!
    … wait…… you mean all that these laws will accomplish is an easier transition from an armed populace to an unarmed one?…… but…..how is that going to………………..stop the criminals and the terrorists?

    …wait, you mean that’s just the story they tell to get stupid people to support gun control?!!! WHAT!!!!!
    Ah yes friends, I loath the smell of infringement in the morning. Good job Democrats, good job Gub Brown!

    At least 80% receivers aren’t on the chopping block just yet, but bullet buttons are gone, sooooo does that mean purchasing and transferring say, an AR15 would no longer be possible in any form since the AWB removes our access to them? Good grief. Buying ammo will become another data point for the state on their ad hoc registry, since, if I buy ammo but don’t have a registered firearm, does that put me in the poopoo file? Do I become another name on the no fly/buy list because I refuse to allow the state to know what I buy?

    I weep for a Clinton presidency as she will take the crap sandwich from Hawaii law(adding gun owners to criminal list), and the smorgasbord of anti gun stinkers from Cali and make them national. Where to escape to, I wonder?

    Much love from Cali, shoot some ammo for me.

    The American south and Texas will resist. They have a history of resistance to federal intervention. Resistance comes in different forms. They are free states. Everyone has guns.
    Only the ruling class has guns in California. I know having a racially integrated ruling class makes it easier for socialist to accept.
    Soon all Marijuana will be legal in California. And then the utopia will be in the golden state. They will have the “freedom ” they crave so desperately. Sexual freedom they already have.
    What freedom means in California is different from what freedom means in any more conservative part of the country.

    The fact is the more conservative areas have few limits on guns.
    The more liberal areas have more limits on guns.

    I suppose this will result in more Californians moving to Oregon, where they will write letters to the editor saying Oregon should be more like the California they just left
    It’s bad enough that Bloomberg’s toadies rammed that stupid “universal background check” nonsense through Salem, now they will probably want this Cali crap pile passed too.

    Of course after Jerry Browns signs the bills for stricter gun control he runs off to Europe to avoid the public news media, law-abiding gun owners, and the NRA. The bad guys will always find ways to arm themselves with assault-type weapons. What happens when a disaster happens and all first responders are busy? Who will protect us against the bad guys with assault-type guns? i should learn how to throw knives =]

    As a French gun owner, I know what it means to see your gun rights to barely become gun privileges… so I can understand the frustration of Californian gun owners. And I have no doubt _they_ never wanted that, just like I never wanted France or the EU to ban guns…

    But somehow, I have to agree with “Another Two Months” here. Even if _we_ don’t want that, the majority of the state wants it and voted and elected the people to pass these kind of stupid laws. Californians did vote for them. My dad always told me to be a grown man and assume for my actions, all of them. Well, Californians should do too. Their actions to vote for Democrats and gun grabbers in the first place brought them to the civilian disarmament they are going through now. Causes and Consequences. If they don’t like it, they should definitely act and vote for people that would finally do something about it. That’s how it works in a Constitutional Republic with Democratically elected Representatives.

    And if gun grabbers do pass this kind of laws in California, it’s because they definitely know it’s the most appropriate state to do it. There’s a French saying: “How we make our bed we sleep”.

    For this exact reason, I will always prefer to keep my heart in Texas and would always vote and get active to be sure this kind of crap ever happen there.

    1. So then black people in the Jim Crow South voted for Jim Crow laws?

    2. avatar Curmudgeon5462 says:

      The bill of rights wasn’t written to protect popular opinions, and is in place to prevent state laws from usurping civil liberties. Popular opinions don’t need protection. FUCK Another Two Month’s stance on this issue. It’s 100% spineless ignorant garbage, and is the exact type of apathetic thinking that lead to the most horrific events in history. The people of California have the right to bear arms just the same as anyone else. Civil rights are not something the state can give and take at will, they are God given at birth to every human being on EARTH. Fight it, CA.

      1. No doubt people Like Another Two Month argued that black people in the South should have just accepted Jim Crow laws, because it was what the voters wanted.

        Your living in a Conservative dream world. The Supreme Court is a life appointed dictatorship that votes according to popular opinion and always has. Example: The incarceration of Japanese American Citizens in WWII in American concentration camps. Laws that prohibited people from attending the school of their choice. Laws that prohibited minorities from living in White areas. Laws that prohibited people from sitting in any seat on a bus. Laws that prohibited inter-racial marriage. Laws that prohibited eating in the restaurant of ones choice.

        Fast forward: New law that makes it legal (Supreme Court Ruling) to ban any and all weapons by the Local or the State “Power Elite”. New law by the “Peoples Court” of the “Peoples Republic of California” which outlaws concealed carry as it was stated they are a direct threat to the “Power Elite” which are exempted from such law. New Law in “The Peoples Republic of Hawaii” registering all gun owners on the FBI Criminal Watch List which will make it legal to confiscate all registered guns on the flimsiest of excuses such as a minor traffic violation. New law from Komrade Jerry Jung Brown (close friend and confidant of Kim Jun Un) that outlaws possession of high capacity magazines for complete control over the Proletariat.

        In short the Constitution is a joke and always has been. It is a myth, a farce and a piece of fantasy that never existed.

        Ever wonder why the Second Amendment was written in such “vague terms”. The Founding Fathers left themselves room to ban all weapons if the Proletariat ever rose up against them which has come home to roost in modern times. Remember in the “Revolutionary Days” only the “Landed Gentry” could vote, women were also prohibited from voting as well as slaves. And they wanted to keep it that way.

    Evil, anti-American leftists. How do you stop a 10 cent plastic box with a spring? Unenforceable. Liberalism is a mental disorder. WATER THE TREE!

  52. avatar cisco kid says:

    The Supreme Court is a rabid joke in America. Recently they have defecated almost daily on the Second Amendment (nothing new of course) by upholding the banning of any and all weapons in relation to all the bans on the East Coast after Sandy Hook. They have now said concealed carry is not a Second Amendment right either. They will of course uphold our Dear Leader Komrade Jerry Jung Brown’s confiscation of all high capacity magazines. After all as one Political hack stated you would not have your rights violated with an ammo ban because all one really is entitled to is ownership of just one bullet, that’s enough for self defense. Of course our Komrades in the life appointed Dictatorship of the Supreme Court will heartily concur.

    Warmest regards on this 4th of July to Komrade Jerry Jung Brown of the “Peoples Republic of California” for banning all modern firearms. The dream of a world wide Socialist State lives and together I and Komrade Brown will bring order to the world and achieve complete control over the Proletariat. —Kim Jung Un.

    Apparently you sir, live in a bubble of like thinking morons that believes a gun is an can be evil! You have to know that the guns and it’s accessories are neither evil nor good; but, can be used for either. Banning guns is like banning matches to stop Wildfires! Do away with evil and bad peoples; especially when they tell you (the public) that they hate you and want to kill you. Make laws with a severe enough punishment for violence and murder and eventually you will make believers of people that would do evil, that there actions will bring swift and crushing reactions to them and all that are connected to them and their cause!
    It’s ignorant on your part to disarm the good and law abiding citizen (a citizen who if Not disarmed by your ignorance) could and would have come to you and your family’s aid to save you all from a would be murderer.
    Have you ever stopped to think what would our country look like if only bad and hateful people had guns? Your reasoning is faulty and you truly need to reread our constitutional rights and why our forefathers thought it wise to install them!!!

  56. avatar cisco kid says:

    The new law simply shows the 2nd Amendment is a joke and always has been. People in power want absolute power especially the crooked Supreme Court that even ignores its own prior Scalia Ruling. California generally leads the U.S. is what is coming whether it be civilized Socialist changes or draconian gun ban laws. Its amazing the Second Amendment has lasted this long in American History knowing the propensity of people in power to enslave those under them.

    The lower California courts even ruled this past summer that concealed carry was not a right because it threatened the police who protect them. In other words only the Power Elite have the right to protection by firearms and you the proletariat are expendable. You cannot get any more blatantly anti Second Amendment than that.

    On the East Coast the Sandy Hook Assault Weapons ban was ruled by the Supreme Court as lawful which actually paved the way for the California ban so do not think the law can be appealed its already been ruled legal with the Sandy Hook ruling.

      Pretty much.

      Being realistic, this is the outcome with any strong, large central government. Rights become privileges and then privileges are taken away. IMHO, our nation has rotted to the core so much that restoration of true liberty is not possible by typical reform. It will require vast changes in a relatively short amount of time. All of these people who want to enforce current gun laws, are content with what they have, and are afraid their roads will not be paved are never going to allow restoration. Those of us who understand real freedom are basically screwed.
