” A “prohibited person” is one with a criminal conviction”
What does that mean? Does a speeding ticket count? Drunk driving?
Conservatives in California don’t have a lot of good options other than to move elsewhere. It’s a shame what has happened to that state.
I wonder how many law enforcement officers they will lose trying to enforce this?
It doesn’t matter what is written. These people are morons ...
Is an illegal alien a prohibited person?
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons,
There was a case here in Spartanburg, SC, recently, concerning a convicted felon using a gun to shoot 2 intruders dead, as they were trying to break into his girl friend’s apartment. The cops let him go on the grounds that even a convicted felon should have the right and means to defend himself. Since then - about a year later, they have charged the guy with using a handgun after being a convicted felon.
I side with the original finding by the cops - even a convicted felon should be able to defend himself. I may get flamed, but having the ability to defend yourself is God given right that should not be infringed.
The alternative could be considered ‘cruel and unusual punishment’...
When liberals say they’re not coming for your guns, I’m always reminded of a wife beater who says “I’m NOT beating you. Your face keeps hitting my fist”.
Actually you do have another choice besides handing them over, but you have to be willing to accept all the consequences of that choice.
Doesn't that fall short of the standard set in the 5th Amendment ... nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; ... which has been the standard observed by the states and the FedMob until now? A person had to be adjudicated mentally incompetent in a court of law before they were lawfully deprived of their fundamental rights.
Toomey-Manchin was going to sweep that away on the national level.
This appears to be doing it on the state level in CA.
It seems to me that the government, state or FedMob, doesn't give a fat rat's arse about anything in the Constitution anymore.

This is going to be a disaster if it is allowed to happen in terms of people subject to criminals, in terms of loss of taxpayers and tax revenues to the state.
As to the people of California, well, I am sorry, but you get what you elect.
I’m willing to bet not one person will resist either- Sure, they may scream and yell- but in the end they will comply- Why? Because they have NO organized force to fall in behind to resist en mass- individuals iwll not resits by themselves knowign it will be futile but given a large enough group- Many coudl send a pwoerful message that govenrment officials WILL NOT confiscate their guns
Where the hell is the NRA? They aqre the ONLY group large eno0ugh to mount a massive civil disobedience movement capable of shuttign down the left’s VIOLATIONS of our Inalienable rights!- Simply aloowing the confiscaTION TO HAPPEN, THEN FILIBNF A COUPEL OF LAWSUITS ISN’T GOIGN TO CUT IT- PEOPLE’S INALIENABLE rights ARE BEIGN VIOLATED NOW!
