Here we go again California piling on. Sen. Kevin de Leon said his proposal would increase the restrictions on purchasing ammunition by requiring buyers to get a permit, undergo a background check and pay a fee.

Negative. California is now a supermajority. There is nothing stopping the legislature from passing [silly & stupid] laws.

This is only the beginning. Things will only get worse for CA firearm owners.

Supermajority has nothing to do with the courts.

Okay, so they pass a law. Which becomes [an unconstitutional] LAW. How long do courts take to overturn laws? Years...

Take a look at our current laws on the books, for example. We are STILL fighting the nonsense.

Yes. For every one that gets negated, more crop up.

Not sure what planet you are on but the last law he had was stopped before it ever started. Its called an injunction.

Total fail. Specifically:




De Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat, said tighter rules for buying weapons only solves part of the problem of gun violence. His legislation would expand on his previous legislation to restrict sales of handgun ammunition, which the National Rifle Association is challenging.

"California has enacted legislation designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but it has done little to prevent criminals and gang members from procuring ammunition that fuels gun violence," de Leon said in a statement.

IF the previous legislation actually HAD kept guns out of criminals, then criminals wouldn't have anything to put the ammunition in, would they? So, his response to the first failure is to add something else that won't work.

Brilliant!

de Leon is such a tool.

And I have no idea what your response means since I was discussing general California gun laws (and the possibility of getting them overturned anytime soon).

I would hope that, if such a law were to pass, we could get an injunction preventing its enforcement until a court could review it.
