Thanks to the Legistlature of The People's Republic of Kalifornia, there are several new bills ready to sign into law. Reported yesterday in Los Angeles Times, some of the lowlights of the new bills are:

-A 50$ fee and background check for ANY ammunition purchase

-A law requiring all vendors to report to feds and local PD whenever a customer purchases 3,00 rounds

-The prohibition of the manufacture, sale or usage of any rifle with a detachable magazine. As well as a mandatory registration for anyone owning these type of weapons.

-I am also a National Guard soldier, and last month, as we drew our weapons for training, there were locks installed on the weapons preventing the usage of full auto. When asked, were were advised that these locks were mandated by the State and will only be removed when and if we deploy overseas or serve outside the State.

These bills will be awaiting signature of the Governor, who is not a champion for gun rights to begin with. I ask again, name ANY of these laws that would have prevented ANY of the previous tragedies of Connecticut of Colorado. Its simply the refusal to enforce laws already on the books. More people die every year from over eating, yet we can freely buy forks. Kalifornia is already the highest taxed state in the nation, they cant find other ways to give away money, and now they will work on taking away more rights of law abiding people. I cant WAIT to leave this place. Its sad, this was a great state back in the day. When seconds count, police are just minutes away!

I'm not doubting what you say, but if the state is able to impose their new laws on military weapons on military property then the state has waaaaaaay too much power and all the residents really are in deep doo doo.

Perhaps your legislators want all the new laws to mimic Chicago because naturally more laws will make everyone safer.

So if I went to buy a box of 50 .22LR at a cost of $5, I would have to add in a $50 ammo tax = $55? :loco

If they are enforcing these laws on the military, does that also include the ammo quantity registration (3000 rounds)? 'Cuz that really isn't chit to some units....Whose name do all those "evil, killer, rifles" go under WRT military weapons?

If these bills become law, I see all sorts of lawsuits coming. As for the Guard, I think the governor has certain legal controls over state units, but if this is a unit being funded by the US government, the state should have ZERO authority to lock down the weapons of those units. If the citizens of Californicate are willing to tolerate a 50 buck tax on ammo purchases, they deserve everything they get. There ought to be a movement to recall every legislator who voted for this travesty. This will get interesting assuming NRA is already on it.

I echo alot of these sentiments. This state has been run largely by one party for over 20 years. The governor has been just a figurehead. The way this state government is set up allows for one party in majority to dictate and run roughshod over dissention.

They also passed a law last year allowing for state funded tuition assistance for illegal aliens so long as they graduated from a kalifornia high school.

And yes, a 50 dollar fee (they wont call it a tax) is assessed for purchases in order to fund a background check on the customer.

I work a for one of the large employers in the State, and they have been quickly moving work out of here. They moved corprorate last year, and now are beginning to move work to other states. In a meeting today, it was mentioned that the massive sales tax levied on customers (million/billion dollar purchases) makes it difficult to be competitive. It was clear their ultimate goal is to Kalifornia free as much as possible, and soon.

Beach, it is amazing how many people are leaving California in herds. I just hope as they leave, they remember what it is that is making them decide that they don't want to live, work, employ there any more. Setting up shop in a different area and then re-creating the fiasco that is now Caliphony is like that age-old definition of insanity.

Its amazing how many TAX PAYERS are leaving in herds. There,,fixed it.
I agree completely. I have lived happily in other states and plan to do so again SOON. I cant leave this dump fast enough. The trouble with this state is they think they can spend like drunk sailors, give away money to anyone and everyone, and then raise taxes again to catch up (last tax increase was last fall). It costs me 650 dollars this year for the tags on my new Ford truck. I pay max fed income tax and then the state comes back and bangs me again for their piece of the pie. I had to use my Post 9/11 GI Bill for my wife to finish her master's. Yet if I wasnt born here I suppose I could have gone to school for free and not pay ANY tax. On top of that, they want to make a criminal out of me for owning guns. My understanding is, 30 round magazines are a felony in this state, I guess Im a felon about 30 times over.

They say that Socialism is a good system until you run out of other people's money. In this state ,, we are getting there.

They've been there for a few years I believe.... They expect the other profitable states to bail them out.

Atleast that's the way it was when I last worked there in 2008.

The Governor of the state is the Commander-in-Chief of the state National Guard unless they are federalized. He can issue any order he wants.

If you have to spend the $50 TAX (yes, I called it a tax....), I would be buying in case lots of 2999, just to fly under their radar. One purchase every day. Just to pss in their Wheaties.

If the $50 tax on ammo purchases applies to law enforcement, maybe they won't be so quick to shoot up a newspaper delivery pickup truck.

Ha! Cali will come to Oregon for ammo like we go there for booze.
P.S.
To all the Kalifornians, Oregon sucks, it rains 10 months a year, all the women are fat, short and ugly, the ocean is freezing and it's too cold to ride all year round, don't even consider moving to Oregon.

I know that's why I live down here, Oregon is already full of libtards from Ca.
I go to Reno to buy my ammo.
This will carry over to most other states, as our once great nation has turned into a liberal freekshow.
We are rotting from the head down.
