The California Senate just approved a sweeping gun control bill that makes it among the toughest in the land. SB 53 requires background checks and a $50 ammo purchase fee.
“SB 53 will do nothing to stop criminals from purchasing ammunition,” said Sen. Tom Berryhill. “These restrictions – like most of the gun legislation we are seeing here today – won’t do a thing to stop crime. They will only hurt the law abiding citizens like hunters and sportsmen who, for the record, contribute millions to the state’s economy.”
California has been at the forefront of job/rights-killing bills. SB 53 is another rung in the anti-Constitutional ladder.
Not only will the bill continue to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to enjoy their constitutionally protected rights to own a firearm, it will drive out businesses that manufacture and sell firearms and ammunition.
Apparently the California congress forgot that businesses pay taxes, something less and less people do in the state.
Calguns Foundation has already launched a lawsuit against some of the firearms safety provisions, including the microstamping provision that will effectively end all handgun usage and sales in the state.
With a population that has been flooded with illegal aliens and criminals released early because of massive budget shortages, it looks like the state of Californiastan just got a lot more dangerous for it’s citizens.
Except the politicians in Sacramento, of course. They make sure to exempt themselves from laws they inflict on the unwashed masses.
Even for those who don’t live on the West coast this infringement should concern all Americans.
