Posted on 05/04/2013 12:26:10 AM PDT by Redcloak
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) A ban on the possession of large-capacity ammunition clips in the city of Los Angeles was one of two gun control measures the City Council approved Friday.
The proposed ordinance which was passed in an unanimous 11-0 vote would declare high-capacity ammo clips a public nuisance and allow Los Angeles police to confiscate those firearms.

I posted some more lovely, snarky comments here, for those who might be interested. I tried to keep the snark dialed back to something below 11, but this City really makes that difficult.
It will be eventually declared unconstitutional...but at least for one brief day...the crew looked swell for the newspapers and local focus groups. And that’s generally that matters.
Note, they couldn’t bring themselves to create a mechanism to put potentially dangerous mentally-ill people into state facilities.
I literally LOLed this morning when I heard about this. No kidding. I was sitting at a light laughing like a nut. I kept thinking that this is going to turn into yet another nice car for the NRA’s attorney here in CA. The LA City Council really ought to talk to their buds in San Francisco about how much it stings to get a bill from Michel and Associates. They’re still walking funny after paying for Prop. H.
Betcha the gang bangers were LOL’ing too...... ;)
So, um, who’s going into Compton to enforce this thing?
Mayor V? Heh.
Yep. I can see that happening! IN DROVES!
I’m okay with banning high capacity CLIPS. That means the 50 and 100 round MAGAZINES are still legal.
Honestly, what these people know about guns and ammo would fit in a thimble - with room enough for an elephant.
So the gungrabbers admit confiscation is the goal of “commonsense reform”.
Actions like this are why the NRA is winning on this issue.
Authorizes confiscation, huh? So I’m sure the authorities will be streaming into East LA and SouthCentral and begin the confiscations there. Being the upstanding pillars of the community they are, the Bloods, Crips and Latin Kings will eagerly oblige.
More "journalistic" brilliance.
Good thing they didn’t ban high capacity MAGAZINES !!!
I guess HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES are still legal. Good people of californistan had better vacate. Abraham and Gabriel are paying attention to you.
THIS NEEDS TO RUN ON NATIONAL TV!!!!
IT DESTROYS THE MYTH OF “YOU DON’T NEED MORE THAN 7 ROUNDS”.
These people can't even get basic terminology ok, and we expect them to understand technical details and larger rights issues for these kinds of things? By their own willful ignorance they show themselves unfit for their jobs.
I’m pretty sure that the “high capacity” magazines are already covered under kalifornia law. Guess the la city council (11-0?)wanted the homies to understand cause they must have been getting around state law by declaring they only used clips. Not magazines. Really 11-0? Just guessin’ but my bet is there’s a “d” behind all 11. So, what’s next? They going to doctor up all the old cowboy movies and only show the good guys wearing holster and belt with only 10 bullet loops on the belt? Of course the guys in the black hats will still have 24 loops. What frickin’ idiots.
DRESS (Defy, Resist, Evade, Smuggle, Sabotage)
Have you noticed how the politicians try to cover all bases by calling them magazine clips?
05/02/2013 Document(s) submitted by City Attorney, as follows:
City Attorney report R13-0119, dated May 2, 2013, relative to a revised draft ordinance regarding large-capacity magazines.
Maybe they mean paper clips or hair clips. Yeah, ban those, everyone knows how dangerous those can be.
Friggin’ idiots indeed my friend!
This is liberal Democrat psychopath “show business.” They do things like this knowing it is unconstitutional but they aren’t playing to us. They’re entertaining the morons that vote for them. This is great fund raiser letter stuff as well.
Back in 1982....
“In 1982, gun-banners were successful in placing an initiative on the California ballot dubbed “Proposition 15,” which would have essentially banned handgun sales and mandated gun registration statewide. ...”
“Proposition 15 lost by a whopping 63 percent to 37 percent...”
To me, the rejection of Prop 15 means that all handguns, ammo, magazine sizes, operating systems (revolver and semi-auto) were now protected in the state.
Instead, the politicians have been working overtime to nibble away at gun rights, one item at a time.
I thought the same thing until I saw the text of the ordinance. It refers to boxes with springs inside of them as "weapons". I'm willing to cut the "journalist" some slack on this one.
Did they say anything about magazines?
Now, now... Be nice. They don't cover these confusing things in journalism school. They stick to the vital stuff, like how to use spell-check and which knob is for steam. And at any rate, it could have been worse.
Gun-grabbing Mexifornia Press-2-for-English Nanny State PING!
Thanks for the ping!
