UNPAID TAXES??? TOLL FEES???

It is not surprising that the first police raids to take legally-purchased firearms from citizens are in California. Until recently, the state had the strictest gun control laws and the liberal run state government has always looked unfavorably on the Second Amendment.

Earlier this year, the state legislature expanded the list of what they call “prohibited persons” – people who have legally registered a firearm but, for various reasons, are no longer allowed their Second Amendment rights. These reasons were expanded to include people who are behind on state taxes, did not pay toll fees in a “timely” manner and a wide range of other minor misdemeanors or reported mental health concerns.

In preparation for the crackdown, the state authorized $24 million to hire additional officers to track down 20,000 people on the list. One person on this list was Joe Mendez.

A police officer came to the door and lured Mendez out of his house with a story of a hit and run report. Once outside, he had M16s pointed within inches of his face, was taken into custody and had all weapons removed from his house.

It is important to remember that these were legally- purchased and registered firearms. That gets to the other issue about this initiative.

This case demonstrates what registration lists really are. They are tools to allow police to confiscate weapons. And, all they have to do in California is come up with a reason you should be on the prohibited persons list; a list that is continuously expanding in its scope and definition.

California gun owners beware: your firearms and rights are being confiscated by your liberal politicians.

NWGunslinger did me a favor and dug into the Kalifornia penal/civil code and found it.
From my comments:

It’s CA bill SB 755 and it’s not enacted into law YET! Difficult to read and decipher. It reads like this:

“any person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor violation of this section, Section 69, 71, 76, 136.1, 136.5, or 140, subdivision (b) or (d) of Section 148, paragraph (10) of subdivision (a) of Section 166, Section 171b, paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 171c, Section 171d, subdivision (a) or (d) of Section 186.22, Section 186.28, 240, 241, 242, 243, 243.4, 244.5, 245, 245.5, 245.6, 246.3, 247, 273.5, 273.6, 417, 417.6, 422, 626.9, 646.9, or 830.95, subdivision (a) of former Section 12100, as that section read at any time from when it was enacted by Section 3 of Chapter 1386 of the Statutes of 1988 to when it was repealed by Section 18 of Chapter 23 of the Statutes of 1994, Section 17500, 17510, 25300, 25800, 26500, 30300, 30305, 30306, 30310, 30315, or 32625, subdivision (b) or (d) of Section 26100, or Section 27510, or Section 8100, 8101, or 8103 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, any firearm-related offense pursuant to Sections 871.5 and 1001.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 25400 that is punishable pursuant to paragraph (5) or (6) of subdivision (c) of Section 25400, Section 25850 that is punishable pursuant to paragraph (5) or (6) of subdivision (c) of Section 25850, or of the conduct punished in subdivision (c) of Section 27590″

Nested in all those sections and subsections are misdemeanors related to delinquent taxes. Tolls are taxes in the state of CA and as such are covered under any delinquent tax statute.

  1. And it’s not just the guns they will “pick up”. The last time you will see your home is in chains and in the back seat of a police (Unionized Thugs) car.

    It’s a bad bad time we live in, Those that fallow the rules of “them” with the intent to disarm and disable law abiding citizens are nothing more then pawns of the system. The system that fears a free republic. We cannot possibly know what is good and right for ourselves, for we do not need them. That alone makes us the threat they fear. “Do not go gentle into that good night” ….Dylan Thomas

    God, will this bullshit ever STOP?!?

  5. czechsix says:

    I really wanna see some more proof on the delinquent tax angle, the toll booth scofflaw angle, etc. I’ve looked…can’t find anything other than “someone else said it”, and that’s not good enough.

    anyone got further info?

  6. Just Say No says:

    I had a break-in a few months back, and all that was stolen were my registered guns and rifles. I figured that I might as well get it out of the way now, so that when they put in a law that targets me, and come to take my guns, I can just point to the fact that I reported all of them stolen months ago. Just didn’t file any paperwork with insurance and such.

    Would that count if I was on a payment plan with the govermnment with taxes?

    • Archer says:

      Not yet. That addition to the “prohibited persons” list is still pending. Give it time.

      I’m waiting on the “if you don’t (have to) pay taxes” addition, followed by the “if you pay taxes” addition (with “Only Ones” exemptions, of course).

  8. John S says:

    Would you please cite the bill that would “include people who are behind on state taxes, did not pay toll fees in a “timely” manner ” in the prohibition?

    Not to say that the Legislature has a clue here, nor to diminish the severity of the idiocy currently being considered, but that one is new to me.

    • Wirecutter says:

      I’m sure that part was tongue and cheek and no, I will not pore over the California Penal/Civil code for anyone. That shit gives me a headache.

      • John S says:

        I won’t say one gets used to it, but eventually one can learn to read what the stuff says. (Trying to attribute a sensible motive to the laws is what will make one’s head explode – use ‘the author wants/wanted to be re-elected; some bill is/was needed for visibility to the peons’.)

        Nothing in current law matches the ‘behind on state taxes’ etc, nor do any of the bills before the legislature contain that kind of provision, AFAIK. It’s a bit late in the game (CA has dates bills must pass certain hurdles) for a change to any current bill.

        I think Kevin at Smallest Minority may have the answer – the Infowars post suggested such things *could be* forthcoming, and someone concluded they *had been* implemented already.
