Default Question about the previous AWB and .50 cal rifles

How come the previous AWB was only 10 years? Was it written that way? And on a similar note, can the .50 cal ban ever be lifted in California? Or is it permanent?

It is permanent. It was not written with a "sunset clause", like the Federal 1994 ban. The Federal one was written that way to get it past the republicans in the House/Senate. As we all know, there are very few republicans left in CA government, so there is no need to a sunset clause there were, are and always will be more than enough votes for gun bans in CA.

Asked and answered.

CA's AWB is another on the list of priorities below '2A applies to the states, yes, we mean YOU California' and 'self defense is good cause for a carry license'.

Unless there is some way to amend a bill so you would support it,
the details do not matter until the Governor signs or allows the bill to become law.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
