View Full Version : Equal Protection: 14A AW Registration

How is it constitutional that LEO who 'failed' to register their personal AW's in 2000/1991 can now do so without penalty?

Ostensibly these LEO were/are felons...and now they get a pass.

Sounds like letting LEO register their unregistered AW's is a gross violation of the equal protection clause of the 14 Amendment as well as this in the California Constitution:
CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION
ARTICLE 1 DECLARATION OF RIGHTS


SEC. 7. (a) A person may not be deprived of life, liberty, or
property without due process of law or denied equal protection of the
laws;

Sounds to me like there is a case here.

Yep.

Of course equal protection is denied in many other areas in CA - for example, in CCW issuance. Some depts say they only give them to "judges, jewelers, and personages of prominence" (or similar phrasing - Mt. View's was especially egregious).

Totalitarian governments often pay lip service to written law...and common law for that matter. Most Californians are unaware of what they have created with, or in many cases without, their vote.

Someone got a pdf of the original registration form?

...Or one of the ones the LEO's are using now?

I am sure there is a comment line as to why its being registered...It would be interesting to see what would happen if a Joe Citizen sent in a form today to register a lower and cited the 14th and Sec 7(a) with backup examples of LEO's having registered personal weapons beyond the deadline as well as the DOJ's apparent ignorance/complicity in what was/is felonious un-prosecuted actions on the part of LEO's acting in the capacity of private citizens...hypocritical bastages....

It would be interesting to see what they would do...and then let them explain/defend their violation of the very constitutions they are sworn to uphold.

This whole thing is such a bunch of BS it makes me sick and a little ticked off. Jerks....

Not likely. LE allowance is in the law now.

Wait till Parker v US is final, submit an application for an AW Permit which will be denied, then you've got a case, but not the 'equal protection' attempt which would be very costly and mostly futile.
