California Assembly passes rifle and shotgun registration

If you are old enough to remember the sixties you may recall that the cry of the anti-gun rights crowd was they just wanted to register handguns. That was until the early 1990s when Canada decided to add long guns (rifles and shotguns) to its handgun registry. All of a sudden it became fashionable for the loony left to oppose all gun ownership.

So it should come as no surprise that the California Legislature, which just passed bills that ban both plastic bags and the open carry of handguns has now passed a bill which adds rifles and shotguns to the list of firearms which have to be registered in the states database. Presumably Revolutionary War muskets are still exempt but I'm sure the Democrats will get around to them sooner or later. It was the Democrats who authored and passed the bill. This time the vote was 42-29 with twice the number of absent, abstaining or absent members. 41 votes was the bare minimum required to pass the bill.

The bill is projected to cost at least $400,000 - The Canadians underestimated the cost of their long gun registration as well. It cost them nearly a billion dollars in the first decade. California has three million more people than does all of Canada.

Today, a Canadian member of parliament submitted a petition to repeal the registration law.
The following list is of the Democrats who voted for the bill. No Republicans voted for it. The Author of the Bill was Democrat Mike Feuer.

Arambula

Bradford

Those who voted against AB1810 were primarily Republican. Two Democrats, marked in bold, voted against the bill. The list is identical to the list of those who voted against AB1934 the Democrat gun ban on open carry with one exception. Cathleen Galgiani did not vote.

The bill must be passed by the Senate by August 31st and then signed, or passed, by the gubernator to become law.
I would like to point out that our "long gun registry" has cost over 2 billion dollars to date.
I thought California was close to bankruptcy...

The evel one

Politicians won't be satisfied until there is no gun ownership by the citizens of the good old USA. Really can't see how they justify wasting time with this issue when there are so many more real issues to be resolved. Just today on the local news a sexual predator was arrested for raping a girl of less than 13 years of age. He'd been out of prison for less than 10 years for the same damn thing and had been in trouble for failing to register as a child molester. He was free to walk the streets and rape a little girl. From here it looks like they need to free some prison space. Personally I'd take him out back and take care of it...with an UN-REGISTERED long gun.....thedevil1thedevil1thedevil1

Like he said,,,,we got stuck with a two billion dollar bill for nothing but a huge pain in the a$$.

Californians will find out the hard way. No it won't reduce crime and it won't make life safer for Police Officers.

To hell with California, those dumb a$$ won't be happy until they have screwed up every ones happiness.
I'm proud to say that AZ has countered those jacka$$'s be passing a law making it legal to not only open carry a hand gun but can now carry a conceled gun WITHOUT registration. It will become effective the end of August.
Don't mess with AZ.. Where the heck is TEXAS???

I find this law and abomination of all of their rights. Once California can gain a foothold of this, certainly other more "progressive" states will follow. We all know that this is simply a means to an end in not just assault weapons, but all firearms in general. Really, how much crime will be prevented by law abiding citizens registering their firearms?

But I digress, were all to be found at fault. Many of us fail to take the time to educate ones self about who they are voting for. Votes often are cast on the basis of ones campaign based on "he said-she said" allegations and not on the candidates values and principals. We base our vote on a party but forget what the true party stands for any more.

Up here, it as been admitted by one of the gov agencies/departments that the long gun registry has not been useful in solving a single murder.
It has been admitted by a RCMP member that the wide spread flaws of the 2 billion $ registry has made it impossible to trust the information.

There was a saying, "Only register the guns you are willing to loose". This held true as the government is in the process of confiscating Norinco T97's and High Standard 10B shotguns, and it was only after the firearms community bitched about it being theft that the govt said they would allow compensation.
But you are not eligible for compensation if you decide to get a lawyer and fight for you rights.

Good luck, and dont feel like your paranoid if you bury one with a crate of ammo underground.
