Looks like a full attack on our rights is getting support.

A California bill aimed at strengthening the state's assault weapons laws is gaining support from top Democrats in the wake of high-profile shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin.

Senate Bill 249, by Democratic Sen. Leland Yee, would ban weapons featuring easily detachable magazines, including "bullet buttons," that allow a shooter to quickly reload.

The San Francisco Democrat says the bill, introduced earlier this year and amended this week, clarifies an unintended loophole in state gun law.

The latest version of the legislation has won the backing of Attorney General Kamala Harris and other top Democrats.

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, who has signed on as a co-author, affirmed his support for the legislation Monday, saying lawmakers "can't be afraid to do what is just plain common sense."

"I know that everyone is afraid of the strong lobby on the other side and I believe in the Second Amendment, I believe in the right of hunters to be able to fully participate in that sport, I believe that people ought to have the ability to have a gun in their home to protect themselves if that's what they desire, but no one will convince me it's anything other than a joke to say that having multiple clips and semi-automatic weapons that can shoot 100 or more bullets at a time is necessary in this state or in this country," the Sacramento Democrat said. "It's ridiculous."

The legislation is already facing opposition from pro-gun interests. The National Rifle Association says Yee's move to change the definition of an attachable magazine would render hundreds of thousands of firearms sold legally in the state illegal as of next year. The group called the bill the "worst gun confiscation threat in 20 years" in a release urging members to call lawmakers and voice opposition to the proposal.

The bill is scheduled to be heard by the Assembly Appropriations next week. It must clear both houses in the next four weeks to make it to Gov. Jerry Brown's desk by the end of session deadline.

I believe in the Second Amendment, I believe in the right of hunters to be able to fully participate in that sport,

Do you really think he cares? The far left believes the 2A is nothing more than a privilege and therefore treat it as such.

Rights are not rights if they can be regulated into oblivion.

God will someone please tell these fools that magazines greater than 10 rounds are already illegal to IMPORT OR PURCHASE and then tell them them that BBs don't prevent you from having multiple magazines.

It's so painful hearing these quotes.

BTW, am I missing something? Has 249 been changed to ban BBs now too? AFAIK, it was just the tool like the mag magnet that was a 'conversion kit'.

edited and added words in ALL CAPS to avoid further issues with not being specific enough

Where have you been? And also, keep the FUD down.

For starters, +10 magazines are completely LEGAL to own, they ILLEGAL to place in a fixed magazine rifle.

Also, if you look the the 2A page, there's several threads about the bill and one talking about SP249's latest rendition.

Climb out from that rock once in a while.

Now it is a bill that describes BB rifles and pistols as assault weapons.

Yes, I wasn't completely specific about the 10+ magazines and the various ways it's legal to own them. That would take too long to type. I guess I should have said to purchase/import.

This rock is pretty heavy. I'll do my best to get out from under it and go read the update. It must have been amended very recently.

edit: SB249 was amended today. I had not looked at those posts yet. I guess lifting my rock took too long.

Steinberg misunderstands the second amendment.

The second amendment is to protect US from HIM.

An "assault rifle" is perfectly designed for that task.
