Skip to comments.Jerry Brown to decide fate of legislation targeting rifle sales
Posted on 09/09/2011 10:49:48 AM PDT by SmithL
California would retain records of rifle sales, as they do now for handguns, under legislation that is headed to Gov. Jerry Brown.
Assemblyman Mike Feuer, a Los Angeles Democrat who crafted the bill, said it would allow peace officers responding to a crime at a particular address to check via database whether any long-gun owners live there.

Ol'Jer Brown is sure gettin' strange in his old age.
Odd. Didn’t they say when passing the registration laws that it would never be used this way? ( tag for the sarcasm detection impaired goes here )
Crap like this is why I put California Government on our DO NOT SELL TO list.
This is WRONG, BAD and should be DEFEATED.
If it succeeds with those NUTS who run Kalifornia, it will be run all over the Country.
The government has NO RIGHT to know what guns you own OR how you earn a living, or how much you make.
This is incremental fascism.
If you live in California, buy now. If the law is signed will Californians who buy rifles and shotguns out of state be reported to the Califascista regime?
Too bad, California rifle purchasers, it looks like the state's going to be keeping records on you...
Oh, I see, so we are the enemy...
Face it if you bought a gun (long or short) after the Brady Bill was passed your name is in a database that will be used at some time in the near future to track down gun owners and their guns. Here in CA all gun purchase records are required to be turned over to the state when that business goes under, don’t imagine that even old sales (as in decades old) will not be entered into the “system” for use by your friendly LEO in taking away your guns.
Another reason to support my theory that California is run by the insane. This State is the worst State to work or live in.
Not when you still have New York and Massachusetts
This moron thinks everybody who owns a long gun (or a firearm of any kind) has a criminal tendency to shoot a cop?
Since the records had to be retained for three days, and since there is always the chance that a particular computer will crash over that three day period, most computers are backed-up on a regular basis.
This information exists somewhere and can be used for whatever purpose the feds or state law enforcement deem they can get away with.
So they check, and they find out that someone with a rifle lives there. What’s next? They wait for SWAT?
“Officer....the neighbor’s dog pooped on my grass.”
“Just a minute, we have to run a check.....Oh my God!!!!He’s got an antique flintlock!!!! This is One Adam 12 to all units on all channels!!!!! He’s got a Fox Terrier and a flintlock!!!! Call for the ATF!!!!”
I don't care.
I'm not paranoid about them ever showing up at my house. Let them bring a warrant for what they already know that I possess.
When the Feds come knocking on your door to confiscate your guns, the solution is to not be at home. Simple.
Good bloody luck searching every square meter of the state of Nevada for anything that I don't want found: Thanks to GPS, anything I hide and never recover is more likely to become part of the fossil record than to ever be discovered by chance. Ought to make for some interesting discoveries by Archaeologists some 500,000,000 years from now.

Probably not now but that day may be coming soon.
Duh, of course he’s going to sign it.
Yup. I saw the writing on the wall and left in 95.
Just my opinion; elected officials know they are regulating against the will of the people and totally realize that one day karma may happen to them.
