Someone once told me that tyranny is “when felons are created with nothing more than the swipe of a pen.” This will be the fate of millions of California gun owners should the ten Nazi-like bills dubbed “Gunpocalypse” pass in California. [Click here for a rundown of the bills dubbed “Gunpocalypse.”] And there’s more bad news for those of you in the Golden State…
Gunpocalypse could be voted on in the assembly as early as Monday. That’s right, the bills will get a yea or nay with no time to debate or discuss the obviously unconstitutional bills. The bills will rush through the California like the bullet train they’d love to build with taxpayer money. Most likely this week. Early this week.
That’s the last step to producing bills for Governor Jerry Brown (I’d say Democrat, but that’s redundant in California) to either sign into law or veto. Based on the speed at which these horrific bills are flowing through the legislature, it takes little imagination to guess what Brown will do. I believe he will sign them all.
These bills, should they pass, will affect Californians in a major way, but I don’t need to tell you all that. Every single person who I like or respect that lives in California will be affected. Most of you already know this.
Speculation as to why they are attempting to pass the bills in the dark with little coverage other than here and the Firearms Policy Coalition. One theory: they’re designed to humiliate Lt. Governorand aspiring Governor Gavin Newson, who shoe-horned most of these measures onto a ballot initiative, now approved. Or maybe it’s because the legislators feared voters would give a thumbs-down on the ballot question.
The Gunpocalypse bills will turn millions of “high-capacity” ammunition magazine owners — who refuse to sell or surrender their mags to the state — into felons. (Not to mention ammunition making purchases subject to state control.) It is tyranny plain and simple. Like New York’s SAFE Act and Connecticut’s “assault weapons” registration, Gunpocalypse sets the stage for further government tyranny and catastrophic enforcement.
