Tom McClintock, R-CA, speaking in support of HR 822 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR New Hotness: Stoking Fear and Loathing of 5.7x28mm Guns and Ammunition FBI: No Firearms Were Found in the US Capitol During the January 6 Riot Video Released of Louisiana Gun Store Shooting 14 COMMENTS AMEN Reply Wow, some gun(common) sense from a Kalifornia politician. Reply I second this comment. With politicians like this in Kalifornia how is it that the laws are so screwed up for law abiding citizens to purchase and enjoy their 2A rights? Reply Because, sadly, they are the minority. To apply to be a resident of California, you have to take an ignorance test before you can move here. If you’re too intelligent, they kick you out. Smart people are harder to force into slavery. Reply Hey now, I’m a California resident. Have been most of my life. The state hasn’t tried to kick me out yet 🙂 How did you do on the test? Can I get a witness?! Reply Can I get a “whoot whoot”? Reply I’d replace “gunman” with “government,” but either are correct. Reply Sadly, some truth to that statement. Reply Tom McClintock is a very responsible conservative congressman and Constitutionalist. He’s tough on spending, earmarks, and lobbyist sponsored bills. Supporting him help protect the 2nd amendment. Here’s his website. http://www.tommcclintock.com/ Reply Unfortunately, Tom McClintock is only one of a handful of Conservatives in California. Darryl Issa is another. However, the California legislature has been controlled by the Democrats for the last 50 years. It is now in the hands of the Marxist-Leftists. Do not fret though, there are a tremendous amount of gun owners in CA! MOLON LABE! Reply Sorry, couldn’t get past the “lawfully issued permits” thing. Why is it that the 2A doesn’t require lawfully issued permits again? Reply Because LA and SF have a stranglehold on statewide politics, regardless of how insane they are.
