California Democrats Move to Confiscate Guns

If you ever have doubts about the fundamentally fascist nature of the Democratic Party, just look at California.

The land of the Left Coast is a place where liberals run free. Despite a population that is substantially conservative, the Democrats have gerrymandered and nullified nearly every Republican or Libertarian voice out of existence, leaving the left-wing whackadoodles free to do their worst.

And their worst they do at every opportunity. The most recent mandate from the People's Bureau to Stop Individual Freedomes, aka the Democrat-controlled Senate, is being hailed as the biggest gun-banning effort in decades and includes provisions for gun confiscation.

The state's about an inch away from bankruptcy, but the liberals who have been running everything into the ground think they have money to spend on taking away people's guns and creating massive new bureaucracies to track and harass gun owners.

Among the proposals introduced last week by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, are a ban on all semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines, registration of all guns and requiring an additional permit just to buy ammo. There's probably not a one of them that doesn't violate the Constitution.

The House has also introduced its own package of draconian edicts that includes a bill to allow confiscation of all legally owned rifles in the state.

It's a bit of ironic timing that the Democrats would be pushing their gun-owner pogrom the same week that Southern California police are hunting murder suspect Christopher Dorner.

Dorner's 22-page manifesto, before the mainstream media "redacted" it, was replete with praise for liberal celebrities and causes, including gun control.

Yet, the ex-cop and Navy reservist is running around somewhere by his own admission with a rocket launcher and .50-caliber gun -- a real "assault weapon." He's also not on drugs or clinically insane, as his anifesto makes clear -- just very, very self-absorbed.

That makes him a perfect fit for the Democrat Party, but it also underscores the ridiculousness of gun control laws. You would be right if you were to suspect that there are already laws in place to prevent private citizens from obtaining.50--caliber guns and rocket launchers.

And yet, as they say, here we are.

    Just one of a million reasons why you don't want to move to California.....and if you're unfortunate enough to already live there, it's a compelling reason to leave.

      It used to be a nice place, back when I was a youngster. It's still has some beautiful places in it, but I escaped a long time ago.

      • Richard

        The only thing still pretty about California is the 17 mile scenic drive on the Monterey Penisula. Soon the left will ruin that just like they have everything else they touch.

    • mwl

      Or I left and have a home and business there that are unoccupied and wasting away because theres no value in something I sweated blood for and paid a premiun price. Now theres nothing in Ca. except illegals, dope, and debt. The exodus continues of businesses and people that WORK. Whats left are the leftist handouts. The was a artic;e that Ca. will open oil fields to get them out of debt. Ah Ha, capitalism is the answer. Who knew!!!!???? Every conservative in the US. California is a beautiful state. My home and business Ill burn down. Throw some burrito wrappers around, empty Dos XXs cans and a few bottles of tequila. Damn illegals.

      • Screeminmeeme

        mwl...Sorry to hear about your business. Yours is one of the 10s of thousands having to close down because of the Obama economy. It's a disgrace. And it is true that because of the illegal invasion and piss-poor economic policies, the state's economy is a catastrophe.

        I live in Michigan, 4 hours north of Detroit, thank God, but parts of the southern third of Michigan look like a nuke hit it.

  • Shandy

    A .50 cal Browning bolt action rifle which Dorner has is in no stretch of the imagination an "assault" rifle.

    • gbandy

      Actually Shandy you are correct. The " true assault rifle" like the M-16 is designed to either actually assault a position or fend off an assault on your position. Rapid fire and close in accuracy a must. Now the Browning 50 is more of a long range very accurate sniper rifle. Pretty accurate and deadly up to a mile. Any bolt action rifle certainly is not an assault rifle.

      • firstchoice

        Well, you're close. The military defines an "assault weapon" as being capable of "full automatic fire" or, in some cases, "2-3 round burst capability". With fully automatic fire, you simply pull the trigger once and the weapon fires until you release the trigger or you run out of ammo. (Or your barrel warps/melts) The M-16 and M-4 carbine does fit that description. The confusion begins when the media and libs continue calling Semi-Auto firearms, (AR-15 and it's clones), "Assault Weaons", which DO NOT possess full-auto capability. I'm not sure who coined this idiotic term that's used to scare the public with it's "scary" looks. Not that long ago, the M1 Garand, the M-14, and others were called the "Main Battle Rifle". It's what you "assaulted" the enemy with. Oh, how the libs love to twist the word's meaning and muddle the descriptions.

      True, most people probably associate .50 cal. with machine guns. But there are various configurations of .50 cal. firearms, like .500 S&W magnum revolver round only resembles other .50 cal. rounds in that the diameter of the projectile is .5 inches.

    • firstchoice

      "You would be right to suspect that there are already laws to prevent citizens from obtaining .50 caliber guns..." I would assume the author of this story is speaking of the People's Republic of Kalifornica? Owning .50 BMG Caliber rifles or .50 caliber handguns is not "prevented" in any form, other than your wallet, in any "FREE" State in the Union. You can buy one, or a dozen, just like any other firearm, in any "FREE" State in the Union. I wish the authors would be a bit more specific in thier columns. Little misinformation details like that get people thinking that that's the gospel truth and then it's easier for the politicians to pass a law to suppress our rights to own them.

    Excellent article -right on too. This is an insane group of liberals running and ruining the WHOLE STATE. I cannot find positive things to think about the state I live in. This is a good time to leave if given the chance. Rick Perry is right on coming here to lure folks to
    TEXAS.

    • firstchoice

      Depends on who you're "luring" to Texas. Texans ought to be somewhat scepticle about bringing in the leftie loons along with those fleeing from the leftie loons. Maybe they should require a signed-in-thier-own-blood Pledge Of Allegience to Texas and the US Constitution as a precursor to Texas citizenship. (Tongue in cheek.) I remember the day when Florida was staunchly Conservative. Over the decades, "snowbirds" from the Northern States moved in and slowly but surely brought thier lib views and policys with them. Now look at Florida. Texans, stand your ground and hold the line!

    I live in SoCal and do like it here, but the longer Obama is in office and the more democrats control California, the worse things get.
    You have to live in a border state to understand what the huge influx of illegals is doing. Americans have less rights than illegals and illegals are preferred for jobs, like those in construction or manufacturing, that Americans need and want.
    California legislators want to have the strictest gun laws in the nation. Those gun laws would have done nothing to stop Dornor from committing murder. He is obviously insane or he wouldn't have killed three innocent people because he lost his job.

    I've been curious as to where the first shots of The Civil War II were going to be fired...

      Isn't it ironic that California is where the settlers ran for freedom and opportunity.

      • dshevlin

        No, they ran there to pan for gold of which was a big scam just to get people out there.

  • rchguns

    This article points out how totally ridiculous California in general and the gun was specifically are so insane. But this post also is flawed in that the person writing it obviously has zero background in weapons. To call any 50 caliber weapon and assault weapon is totally ridiculous. Assault weapons must have certain characteristics one of which is that they must be comparatively lightweight they also must be relatively small so they can be carried and used by the soldier on the run. Assuming that the 50 cal talking about is one based on the 50 caliber rounds used by the military is especially weapon whose original intent was to be used against light armored vehicles and other physical targets only recently has it been used as a sniping around.

    It would seem that it doesn't matter whether someone is pro-gun or anti-gun if they're in the public spotlight 9 times out of 10 they stir up more trouble just because they don't know what they're talking about. The biggest misstatement usually seen is the term automatic weapon. First off no weapon of any kind is automatic it has to be controlled by a human, Next they substitute the words automatic weapon machine gun, assault rifle, and all semi-automatic weapons, you know like grandpas A-5 Browning shotgun.

  • simpletony1

    No, that's not where WE are anymore for sure. And except for New York, California is the dumbest state by far. Finally migrated to a real state of the new United States where one can find a real governor and sheriff. Oh, we've got some wackos here from California but we to their houes regularly and hope they move on the New Mexico. Yes that's right the NEW Mexico.

    They should take the wepons from all gang members and thugs first. Not the law abiding citizens.

      • firstchoice

        Yes, it's much easier to make "feel good" laws that restrict law abiding citizens' Right to self preservation and ability to protect one's family and property. To actually address the real problems would require actions that would keep the ACLU up at night. We have become way too tolerant of these scourges to our kids and our society.

    If their bans are passed, I will not comply. Millions more will not comply.
    DHS and other alphabet agencies have recently purchased over 1.8 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammo – enough to shoot every man, woman, and child in the country 5 times or more – ammo that’s illegal for military use under international law, and have just ordered more and an additional 7,000 FULLY AUTOMATIC "personal defense" weapons. How does anyone with the capability of rational thought escape the conclusion that our government is preparing for a war on its own citizens?
    Feinstein, Schumer, Obama, Holder, Bloomberg, Cuomo, and their whole gang are tyrant wannabes. To them, anyone who does, or might, oppose their control over every aspect of our lives, is “a criminal” because they said so.
    To quote a few of their heroes, with explanatory comments in ( ):
    “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” – Mao
    (They revere Mao and the way he ruthlessly grabbed power in China. The fact that he murdered about 100 million Chinese to do it is, to them, a “feature,” not a “bug.”)
    “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves. … The only real power comes out of a long rifle. … Everyone imposes his own system as far as his army can reach. … We don’t let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns? … The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.” — Joseph Stalin
    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.” — Adolf Hitler
    (These psychopathic sociopaths in our government – and THEY ARE PRECISELY THAT, never make the mistake of doubting it – believe that they are anointed to be our rulers and that we are the equivalent of Hitler’s “subject races.” And we know what they did to "them.")
    Don’t tell me, “It can’t happen here in America.” To borrow a quote from Mike Vanderboegh,
    “Anyone who tells you that ‘It Can’t Happen Here’ is whistling past the graveyard of history. There is no ‘house rule’ that bars tyranny coming to America. History is replete with republics whose people grew complacent and descended into imperial butchery and chaos.”
    Hitler disarmed the Jews and others, then murdered millions
    Stalin disarmed the Russians, them murdered millions
    Mao disarmed the Chinese peasants, then murdered nearly 100 million.
    The Turks disarmed the Armenians, then murdered 1.5-2 million.
    Pol Pot disarmed the Cambodians and murdered millions.
    Rwanda disarmed its ethnic groups, then murdered millions.
    The list goes on … about 262 MILLION people murdered BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENTS in the 20th century – AFTER they allowed those governments to disarm them. See: http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/20TH.HTM
    They ALL thought “It can’t happen here” – until they were disarmed and it started, then it was too late. Don’t make the same mistake. Don’t EVER let your government disarm you.
    The Founders knew that government, if not constrained at every step, will continue to accumulate power and control until it becomes tyranny. That’s why they feared standing armies and insisted that the “right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
    “A tyrannical rule cannot in any reasonable construction be accounted lawful, and therefore the disturbance of such a government cannot be esteemed seditious, much less traitorous.” – Thomas Aquinas
    When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty – Thomas Jefferson
    Take the pledge:

      You would have to take out the REP's as well as they will do nothing to try to remedy the situation. They are running scared and very complicit in all this. My own Congressman here refuses to answer any questions regarding B.O. He has only just stated that he was concerned but offered nothing else. He is a lazy do nothing, like Boxer & Feinstein who keep getting elected on a NOTHING platform.

      • firstchoice

        If your Congressman won't take a stand or put his position on a subject on paper, he's already made his position quite clear. His vote for the next bill for whatever, is up for the highest bid. Whether it's a "compromise" on something down the road, or an outright under the table bribe, he's, (or she's), waiting to hear what the "offers" are. DEMAND a position, in writing, on whatever subject, bill, law, whatever, from your Congressman and don't let up until they give it to you. Start a Grass Roots Drive to get it. Hold their feet to the fire. Then, if they flip on their position, use it to throw them out of office. We've got to get some accountability back in our legislative system.

    My wife and I are currently trapped in this God-forsaken state, but I can't wait for the opportunity to move out of here. Not sure where to go. States like Oregon and Idaho are already starting to be affected for the worse by the influx of former Californians. I don't want to go somewhere where the ex-Californians want to create a "new" California where they move to. I want to move somewhere where the people believe in and uphold our Constitution and don't have a bunch of idiots who try on a daily basis to see how many un-Constitutional laws they can pass. I've had enough! Somewhere out there, there must still be some real Americans who bleed red, white and blue...like WE do!!!
