This is an obviously unconstitutional measure. I guess the City Council's members were all absent from law school on the day that they covered takings under the 5th Amendment,

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’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.

allow Los Angeles police to confiscate those firearms.

More "journalistic" brilliance.

I guess HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES are still legal. Good people of californistan had better vacate. Abraham and Gabriel are paying attention to you.

Ban all the "clips" you want. I don't have any "clips." ;-)

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.

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....

http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/10/democrats_should_fear_the_brad.html

“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.
