All semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines would be banned, all guns would be registered and no ammunition could be bought without a special permit in California under a sweeping list of bills rolled out Thursday by state Senate Democrats.

The 10-bill package constitutes the single largest gun control push in decades in the Golden State, which already boasts some of the nation’s strictest gun laws. It joins equally controversial proposals from Assembly Democrats that would regulate and tax ammunition sales and consider taking the state’s 166,000 registered assault weapons from their owners.


California to Ban all Semi-Automatic Guns, Confiscate Firearms and Limit Ammo Sales

Bill also calls for the immediate confiscation of anyone who owns one of these weapons.

Makes owning over 500 rounds a felony

Bans anything with a detachable magazine.



Yesterday, California politicians held a press conference to introduce the most draconian gun control civilian disarmament bill seen to date in this country. Seeking to exploit the tragedy of Newtown to achieve a political end, lawmakers introduced a bill that is completely filled with unconstitutional and extreme measures aimed at nothing other than the disarmament of law abiding Americans.

The list includes placing extreme financial burdens on gun owners by requiring them to pay what are essentially “poll taxes” on firearms and ammunition purchases as well as requiring liability insurance, annual certifications, and licensing of gun ownership. Standard self defense and hunting ammunition are now classified as “assault bullets” and are felonious violations for everyone except law enforcement. Almost every currently manufactured semi-automatic firearm in existence – and countless bolt action hunting rifles – are now a prohibited device merely because they have the ability to accept detachable magazines. Certain firearms such as shotguns are being redefined to make them prohibited under the new law even if they dont meet the legal requirements to be prohibited. The list goes on and on.


Aiming high: California trumps New York with toughest gun law

California announced it will pioneer the US’ harshest gun control laws a week after New York claimed the accolade. The legislation comes after a wave of fatal shootings and has been criticized by opposition as a game of ‘one-upmanship’ with New York.

The new legislation, consisting of 10 different proposals, will dramatically crack down on gun use and ownership, making California the most restrictive state in the US.

“California has always been a leader on the issue of gun safety,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said to AP. “New York has stepped up and stepped forward. California needs to answer the call.”

    Shit, California is already losing citizens in droves over taxes. Now they are going to chase out everyone else who isn’t a gangbanger. Way to go being among the first to Communize the state, California. Join in with New York and Illinois. Maybe it’s time for some good old fashioned civil disobedience.

    So I guess the criminals will stop selling drugs and start selling ammo as it will be very profitable for them. Way to create a new black market!

      and don’t forget a significant increase in ALL violent crime from rape, homicide, armed robbery, assault with a weapon and of course home invasion. Criminals are A LOT more bold when they KNOW their victim is defenseless.. .and then of course the government will say “we need even MORE gun control” It’s wonderful how that works. Just ask Chicago.

    If you Californians allow this to happen, you deserve to be disarmed & suffer all of the abuses, including some future genocide that may follow.

      Every gun owner in America must roll into California and hunt down the politicians responsible for this government criminality.

    So let’s see… the Federal government gets caught supplying weapons to the cartels (Fast and Furious), doesn’t even get a slap on the wrist, and now Obama is the biggest cheerleader in this push to take away our right to bear arms. I’m not the smartest guy in the world but if you ask me, I wouldn’t be surprised if the cartels were were bankrolling this effort to take away our ability to protect ourselves. They’ve got the money and the motive to make this happen. Mexico has some of the strictest gun laws in the world (I wonder who was behind that) and they also have some of the highest murder rates in the world. There’s a reason why these cartels are generating billions of dollars in business year in and year out… welcome to the new economy.

    As long as none of these laws apply to the police you’ll be safe. Especially the police who shoot up innocent women because they drive a car that looks similar to one used by an accused criminal who is a man! Mind you I said “accused” criminal, not a proven criminal, wouldn’t want to have to waste tax dollars going through the trouble of actually proving guilt before executing him. These officers should be promoted for their money saving efforts don’t you think?

    Guns are truly only useful and safe in the hands of government. You stupid civilians just aren’t trustworthy enough to have a gun. Most of all guns level the playing field between the weak and strong and we really can’t have that in a tyrannically governed policed state can we? Now get on the wagon comrade and let’s get rid of those evil privately owned guns. Yeah! for the state!

    We demand a plan to incarcerate all the principles of the Sandy Hook?
    Hoax and if there was a child harmed in this melodrama, they should be
    hanged. They tried to overthrow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,
    which is capital? treason

    In 1933 when Prescott Bush and his Nazi brethren tried a coup d’tat,
    Smedley Butler caught them red handed but they were? allowed to get away
    and we have suffered since. Don’t let the bastards get away with this
    treason, they? are busted again.
