California Wins Battle in War Against ‘Assault Weapons’

Law-abiding Californians’ right to buy and sell AR-15s and other popular semi-automatic rifles shrank this week after a judge upheld state rules targeting “assault weapons.”

The National Rifle Association’s state affiliate had challenged rules, set to take effect on July 1, that expand the existing definition of “assault weapon” to include centerfire rifles with “bullet buttons,” plus a slew of handguns and shotguns. Those rules, the group’s lawsuit argued, extend far beyond what a 2016 state law authorized.

    The “bullet button” was created in response to a Tacostan law making regular mag release buttons illegal. Now they ban the guns with “bullet buttons”. Just to keep us off balance I think. I just ignore their silly laws.

    Perhaps the judge should read the original book “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” and see what is going to happen. It was a book of fiction, but is not any longer. It has become a script.

    Screw ’em. Just screw ’em! Enough “good people” out in that God forsaken place will hoard what they need to insure their survival should something catastrophic occur. Post WWI Brits gave up their PDW and begged for our help as WWII kicked off. We bailed them out (again) and then the .gov destroyed a lot of valuable, privately donated firearms. Ain’t gonna happen when California comes abeggin’. regards, Alemaster

      I know neither of my ARs were California compliant and I had a full compliment of 30 round mags.
      I wasn’t the only one, either.

        I’ll be very interested to see what the registration numbers are after the deadline passes. I’m betting it will be pathetically low.

        If a state government feels no need to comply with federal immigration laws, why would it expect it’s citizens to comply with their unconstitutional gun laws?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
