Has anyone seen this? There is a new law that goes into effect on June 1st I beleive that will require airgun users to purchase a $95.00 a year permit to fill aircanisters. They will have to be filled at CARB licsenced state aproved filling stations at $25.00 a pop.

There is a blurb about it over at 6MMBR.COM (http://accurateshooter.com/bulletin.html)

I beleive this state has just reached a new low! What I want to know is if this covers paintball tanks which are the exact same thing. Currently fills on paintball tanks are somewhere around $5.00.

Maybe an April Fools joke, but here's some info one can use (and I just did) to check:

1) California laws generally take effect on JANUARY 1 of the year following passage. A law taking effect another time is possible, primarily if it's classed as an "URGENCY" bill, but even in the fevered dreams of California legislators, this content would not be considered urgent.

2) http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/bilinfo.html is another place to check for the existence of a bill. There is no bill numbered "1984" in this session. Last session, 1984 failed but was about HIV prevention programs in prisons; in 2006, another 1984 went nowhere: it was members in county employee retirement boards.

There's almost always a 'teachable moment' in there somewhere. Or a pony....

“We tax gasoline, we tax real estate, we tax health care, we tax income, we tax all the products you buy in stores, and we even tax you when you die. Why not tax air? It’s brilliant. Heck, if we could tax sunshine, we would”.

Gotta love that quote.

Actually, isn't there a California law that says air *cannot* be sold... even the compressed air at gas stations? They must provide tokens or turn it on if you request...even though the machine has coin slots and says $.25 or whatever.

Guess hippies are good for something. You can fill up your tires for free.
