"The reasons behind California's freedom issues should surprise no one: the state spends aggressively, which not only leads to its perpetual budget issues but also to constant demands for more money-taxes are thus levied at an exorbitant rate. California's largely centralized government certainly does not help the economic issue, and its gun control laws-the strictest in the U.S.-are emblematic of a state with only moderate personal freedom."

Freest is New Hampshire. Least-Free is New York.

I thought we would have tied for 1st with New York.

I am a bit surprised that we aren't quite as bad a New York, but they way the stupid idiots in Sacramento work they will be trying to be worse that new York.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing. How could Sacramento settle for being
4th place in depriving taxpayers their freedoms. You know their going to see this and start a plan to get into the top spot.

I'm not. Had a guy at from New York looking at the CWS table and saying he didn't know you could own guns like that in the USA!

Puts a whole new perspective on things when there are people who call California a free state!

Well, he must not get around much outside of NYC because there are black guns all over NYS including:

1. IMI Uzi ($2100!!!)

2. FN FAL

3. Springfield SAR 48

4. B-West, Interordinance, etc. AKs

5. Saiga 12 shotguns

None of the above bore any of the stupid crap used here to neuter the guns.

The store in question is in Albany (B&J Guns).

Interesting. I guess he must have been an NYC guy.

"Interesting. I guess he must have been an NYC guy."

I think you're right.

I couldn't believe it when I walked into the store and saw walls full of stuff we can't get in CA. The IMI Uzi hanging on the wall really stuck out, although the B-West AK and the SA SAR were impressive, too.

What was really weird was seeing loads of high-cap mags that were pre-1994 available for sale for all types of rifles. Makes the CA laws seem so much more draconian...No wonder they want to adopt them in other areas of the country.
