Yesterday, we sounded the alarm on the draconian gun control bills the California Legislature just passed in our article titled, "SB 374: Assault Weapons Ban Passes, California Legislature Sends Bill to Governors Desk." Today, we are going to analyze these bills and see what exactly they mean to us.

First, we must understand there is still time to stop these bills from becoming law. We implore you to take action NOW! Call California Governor Jerry Brown in addition to emailing and faxing him. Tell him NOT to sign these bills. Do not remain idle. Everyone from all 50 states needs to take part in this effort.

First it was New York, then it was Colorado. Now it is California, tomorrow it will be your state if you continue to remain silent. Please share this with your family and friends! Call California Governor Jerry Brown and tell him to not sign these bills!

Website: Governor Jerry Brown - Phone: (916) 445-2841 - Fax: (916) 558-3160

The following bills passed both the California State Assembly and Senate: SB374, SB567, SB683, SB755 and AB170. With that said let us now analyze these bills.

Second Amendment: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." - Amendment II



SB-374 Firearms: assault weapons - California Legislature
SB374 covers a verity of topics. Let us start with the definitions for a magazine which are as follows.

"(1) ?Detachable magazine? means an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm without disassembly of the firearm action.
(2) ?Fixed magazine? means an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action."
This bill now defines an assault weapon as follows.

"This bill would, instead, classify a semiautomatic centerfire rifle that does not have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept no more than 10 rounds as an assault weapon. The bill would require a person who, between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2013, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool, and who, on or after January 1, 2014, possesses that firearm, to register the firearm by July 1, 2015."

I am a proud American who enjoys the freedoms this country has given us and the opportunity to succeed in the American dream. I realize there's got to be some regulations on certain issues that are for the better good of the people. However things are getting scary in all areas of our lives(economic, foreign affairs, government). What ever happened to "common sense" laws and regulations that most folks agree on. Why does politics play this ridiculous role in forcing there view and law, why not just come to agreement between both parties that's acceptable for All . I'm a younger man who is worried what the country will look like for my children and I've heard this from countless peers. Regarding these gun laws and regulations, some make sense. Most do not and its terrible that u guys r trying to enforce something that will only affect "LAW ABBIDING CITIZENS". The people who respect the country and its laws! NOT the criminals who will still rob,kill,terrorize,etc the communities they live in. Shooting guns has become a very fun hobby with my family in recent years and yes, it doesn't hurt to be able to protect my family if someone try's to come into my home to do any harm to us. Mr. brown, please put aside your political stance and just abide by what the constitution reads. You are only helping bad people do more bad things..God bless us all

1. How is it that Commi-fornia is able to get away with constitutional infringement? 2. Commi-fornia is constantly harassing law-abiding citizens because they know that is where the money is. Look at their laws they are designed to harass the money makers and do nothing to address the sespools they create; Los Angeles, Oakland, Stockton. They release mass amounts of criminals from their jails, they legalize drugs, turn a blind eye to meth possession, they create an environment in which they themselves are unable to protect the public then blaintantly violate our constitutional rights. Is their anyway we can federally override these useless law makers?

If these laws remain, then the terrorist have won. They are slowly destroying our American way of life; so, we need to fight back before we find ourselves living in a repressive regime like China, Russia, or Saudi Arabia! We should keep it simple and abide by the US Constitution.

By changing the features of stock, pistol grip, front grip and muzzle flash of an AR15 will not stop the criminals from gaining access to weapons and committing crimes. It will only work against the law abiding citizens who merely exercise their second amendment right. Do you really believe that Gang members who will still get their guns in the black market will give a rats*****about these laws, do you think they will stop committing crimes? The only people this will affect will be the law abiding citizens which will now be classified as criminals. The Governor of California should think about what resources should be used to stop criminals, not signing laws that will make the law abiding gun owner feel like a criminal.

Throughout history when something is criminalize, it ends up giving the power to the criminals. Hindering the usefulness of a firearm for defense is like making all roller coasters have a speed limit. Why take a "tool" (firearm) and make it harder to reload? The firearm is useful when it's easier to use in an emergency situation. How in the world is a background check going to work for ammo? Would gun owners need to plan a 10 day waiting period to practice at the gun range? So what if more and more people are armed. I feel the safest at a gun show or shop. No one would be dumb enough to rob a gun shop. If a store owner is unallowed to protect himself and business then criminals will take the path that's easiest.
