People often ask why I moved from California to Texas. Typically I hesitate trying to think of a succinct response. But in that moment a ‘flood of reasons’ fly into my head. At one time I thought I found the best place to live in the world — California. Today, I hate even visiting there.
I hesitate to suggest it, but believe it isn’t totally out of the realm of reason to believe that California is the de facto leader of this country. After all, look at the number of trends that started there..?
So now that once great state is leading the way toward the outlawing of guns — not a few, but most. The following are the gun laws being sought by the lawmakers in Sacramento. If you’re a gun owner, this should have you very worried! You could become a felon as of January 1st and may not even know it!
- AB 1135 (Levine) Firearms: assault weapons – Expand the definition of assault weapons based on whether a semiautomatic firearm has a detachable magazine, banning thousands of popular firearms [e.g., hunting rifles]
- AB 1511 (Santiago) Firearms: lending – Make it illegal to loan a firearm to a person who is personally known to you (except for family members with restrictions)
- AB 1673 (Gipson) Firearms: unfinished frame or receiver – Expand the definition of a firearm to partially finished frames and receivers and require their registration [probably upper/lower receivers for AR’s]
- AB 1674 (Santiago) Firearms: transfers – Make it illegal to buy or receive more than one firearm in any 30 day period
- AB 1695 (Bonta) Firearms: false reports – Expand the definition of a firearm to partially finished frames and receivers (no definition of what this means) and require their registration [probably upper/lower receivers for AR’s]
- SB 880 (Hall) Firearms: assault weapons – Expand the definition of assault weapons based on whether a semiautomatic firearm has a detachable magazine, banning thousands of popular firearms [e.g., hunting rifles]
- SB 894 (Jackson) Firearms: lost or stolen: reports – Make it a crime not to report lost and stolen firearms to law enforcement
- SB 1235 (de Leon) Ammunition – Require authorization to buy ammunition and track what and how much ammunition each person buys, creating a database of ammunition purchasers
- SB 1446 (Hancock) Firearms: magazine capacity – Make it illegal to possess magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds no matter how long a person has owned them [no grandfather clause]
And by the way, these laws apply to current and retired police also! For example, imagine having what used to be a hunting rifle with a five shot magazine which would have never been considered an ‘assault rifle’, and now it is on the banned list in the great communist state of California. One must wonder how many more people will be bailing out of there because of this ‘issue’..?
And people wonder why there’s so many homes being built in Texas lately.
