Just the latest reason I call it Marxifornia

California, sinking in Liberal failure, is now aiming at gun owners, again. Jeff Goldstein has the scoop

The gun-grabbers are really going all out here: A group of bills moving through California’s assembly and senate–including one to create a database for ammunition purchases–could create the strictest gun control laws of any state in the union. According the San Jose Mercury News, the bills being heard in the state senate on August 12 would create a database of all ammo purchases in the state, “make it crime to have a gun that’s not locked up when it’s not being carried, and extend the time for which someone is banned from owning a firearm after making a violent threat.” 

So, they would track ammo purchases, with the next step logically being to red flag anyone buying “too much” ammo. The definition of “too much” to be determined by government of course. What could possibly go wrong?

 

Emily Miller refutes the Left’s “high-capacity magazine” propaganda

Emily Miller, columnist, shooter, and a fine spokeswoman for the right of self-defense

Deception is the key component in the latest push for more gun control laws. During her soap opera press conference Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein used a liberal clergyman to give her the moral high ground in her campaign to infringe on the Second Amendment.

The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the Washington National Cathedral, donned his clerical collar for the all-Democrat event to say he can “no longer justify a society” that “permits the sale of high-capacity magazines designed for the purpose of simply killing as many people as quickly as possible.”

The anti-gun crowd labels any firearm magazine capable of holding more than 10-rounds “high-capacity.” It’s a scare tactic.

The Left has to lie and use the fear campaign, hoping enough Americans are ignorant enough about guns to fall for it, Emily Miller is not going to let that happen

Many firearms come from the factory with devices that feed between 15 to 30 rounds — some hold more, some less depending on their configuration and purpose. Ten is a number chosen out of thin air for reasons of political theater. The gun grabbers use it to imply the higher-capacity magazines enable murderers to kill more people, but it doesn’t actually work out that way.

In a 2004 study for the Department of Justice linked on Mrs. Feinstein’s own website, Christopher S. Koper, a professor of criminology, reported that “assailants fire less than four shots on average, a number well within the 10-round magazine limit” of the “assault weapons” ban.

“Studies prove that the arbitrary magazine capacity restriction that was in place for a decade did not reduce crime,” Lawrence Keane, the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s senior vice president and general counsel, told The Washington Times. “In searching for effective means to reduce violence, we should not repeat failed policies, especially when they infringe on the constitutional rights of the law-abiding.”

Violent crime has decreased 17 percent since the assault weapons ban expired.

That last number might be the most important of all. the Left, and the media are pretending that violent crime is running high, and increasing. that is not true. Violent crime has been falling, and so have “gun crimes” for 20 years now. Great piece by Miller, who is writing a four-part series at the Washington Times dispelling gun myths, You can read part one, and I strongly suggest you do, here And pass these around, especially to friends who might not be so familiar with guns.
