Oh, they are already talking about banning armor piercing bullets.
Any bullet that can penetrate a bullet proof vest like the cops wear.
Or basically every rifle bullet.
But they “respect” the 2nd Amendment.
If they keep pushing - they are going to really respect the 2nd Amendment.
I am surprised to see that the SacBee published that article.
Repeat these idiotic terms incredulously. Then have a good belly laughs at these fools, IMHO. Ridicule these fools mercilessly!
Seems to me that there’s a Tree of Liberty in California that’s overdue for watering.
We should stop using the enemys language on these matters.
Their so-called “safety” and “common sense attacks on liberty should labeled as what they are extreme attacks on freedom.
Their attacks on guns that look scary should be labeled the Assault Weapon Scam or the “Assault Magazine” Scam because this is exactly what they are.
Ask a leftist to define what exactly is an Assault Weapon or “Assault Magazine” and then ask them how those definitions wouldnt preclude every weapon know to man.
Perhaps if manufacturers painted certain long guns pink, added the "Gay" logo and attached Hello Kitty" decals all over it it would "look" less threatening?
This clown Steinberg is among the most egregiously arrogant, dogmatic and ignorant in the entire CA legislature.
This is a very cool but table that is sortable by any of the metrics with but a single click. It's also frustrating because the metrics it chooses are not totaled into categories such as "all crimes."
Don't forget also that we all have to deal with "assault hats," "assault shirts," "assault pants," "assault boots," "assault shoelaces," and "assault socks," all in addition to "assault imbeciles."
Oh deary me!
I was just in Cali last week and the houses all had bars on the windows and metal security doors. I felt much safer when I was serving in Afghanistan. The following day I was in Utah and felt completely safe, even though I was unarmed. The Brady Bunch rated Cali the number one state for gun control...82 points out of 100. By contrast, Utah was tied with Alaska and Arizona for dead last place...0 points. How’s that gun control working for you, California?
We must have a real discussion in this country about finding ways to stop these senseless shootings.
Good so far...
I believe a combination of improved access to mental health services, restrictions on certain weapons intended for warfare, and elimination of the gun show loophole are sensible steps that can protect our communities and particularly, our children.
Argh! Ya lost me there Senator. Mental health is an issue. The "weapons intended for warfare" is just lib-speak for so-called "assault weapons." NFW Senator. Re-read the Bill of Rights. It is called the Bill of Rights not the Bill of Needs. I don't have to be in warfare or prove some need for a weapon. I have the right to own it, period.
Senator, trotting out the nonexistent "gun show loophole" meme doesn't earn you any points outside your libtard circles.
If you were serious about protecting our children Senator, you'd introduce or back legislation to end the criminally idiotic and insane "gun free zones" which in fact are never really gun free.
...we want to keep the wrong weapons out the hands of the wrong people...
There are definitely people who should not be allowed to possess weapons. However, law abiding citizens such as myself are not on that list anywhere. Any attempt to trample my rights is unconstitutional.
I believe we can have a civil discussion that addresses these issues and as the recommendations by the President's task force are considered in Congress, we will ensure that xxxx's voices are heard.
My voice, Senator, says "HELL NO!" to any form of "gun control" that restricts my ability as a law abiding citizen to purchase firearms and firearms accessories. That means no "assault weapons" ban, no "high capacity" magazine bans. No restrictions on my giving/selling my firearms to my family members. No registration. No home inspections. That's my voice Senator, represent me or start looking for another job.
The Left gets it. Language and culture are united and words mean something. Isn't it time we retake our language?
Anyone want to place bets this "poll" is bogus???
