The National Rifle Association says it plans to sue the state of California if Gov. Jerry Brown signs a bill approved by state lawmakers that would ban the future sale of most types of semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines. Among the bills sent to Brown last month is one that would outlaw an entire class of weapons that includes most assault rifles. The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action wrote in a post on its website that the bill is unconstitutional and “would make unprecedented changes to California’s already unjust and byzantine ‘assault weapon’ law.” Under current California law, assault weapons can only be used for limited purposes and owners are prohibited from transferring them to anyone in the state. The bill would change the definition of an assault weapon to include any semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine or a fixed magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, according to the group’s statement.
Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, told The Associated Press last month that the assault weapon ban alone would put California in the forefront on restrictions. “No question about it. The bill will make half of the rifles in existence ‘assault weapons,’ and make them illegal,” he said.
How stupid. As the Villainous Voodoo has said in the past, a Q-tip in the hands of the right person is an assault weapon. It’s not the guns, it’s the criminals, you a$$holes! Even if you don’t live in Kalifornia (peoples republic of), support the NRA because what happens in Kalifornia will not stay in Kalifornia; your state will be next!
