Is there any book or definitive resource that focuses PRIMARILY on the state of California, its gun laws, and how each of those gun laws came into being and why? Something like a long timeline of CA gun law history.

Any recommended reads, I want to learn more.

You can just read about the Indian trail of tears and everywhere they mention "Indian" you can just replace "gun owner"

Perhaps http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Time_Line_of_California_Firearms_Laws would be an acceptable starting place?

IIRC, Adam Winkler had an interview on NPR awhile aback plugging a new book of his. He reviews some history (both state and federal) there.

CA laws and CA's prevalent trends in this lengthy article will help you find more leads:

The lynching of persons of Mexican origin or descent in the United States, 1848 to 1928
William D. Carrigan http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m2005/is_2_37/ai_111897839/print

This article does not focus on CA exclusively, but it will also give you leads:

The Racist Roots of Gun Control

More leads are here: http://transsylvaniaphoenix.blogspot.com/2008/06/racist-origins-of-anti-gun-concealed.html

Good luck.

In my spare time I have been reading a lot of California and some federal case law regarding firearms and 2A. I have considered making a thread to discuss some of the more interesting cases. The problem I have is that by the time I organize my thoughts and begin to write, I realize that I'd be starting a history book!

One word: Racist! (everything I've read about CA gun laws comes from attempts to keep guns out of "undesirables" hands until recently when we're all considered "undesirables" when it comes to firearm ownership)

You can just read about the Indian trail of tears and everywhere they mention "Indian" you can just replace "gun owner"

The NOHO shootout was in 1997.
CA was already deep into antigun politricks before that. 1989 was when the first Roberti Roos Semi-auto ban came into play and everything there after was a downhill spiral.

god forbid we accept the face that this was the actions of a human and not the actions of an inanimate object incapable of doing anything by itself.

but for the sake of people emotions we should spend millions of dollars and take another big bloody chunk out of the constitution.
