Senate Bill 374 by state Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, bans all semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and retroactively requires ownership records for all guns. It passed the state Senate 23-15 on May 29 and will be heard Tuesday by the Assembly Public Safety Committee.

Senate Bill 53 by state Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, requires a background check for all ammunition purchases and licenses for all sellers. It passed the state Senate 23-15 on May 29 and is now pending in the Assembly Appropriations
Committee.

Senate Bill 47 by state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, prohibits so-called bullet buttons and other devices used to circumvent the state’s assault-weapons ban and allow fast reloading. It passed the state Senate 23-15 on May 29 and is to be heard Tuesday by the Assembly Public Safety.

Senate Bill 396 by state Sen. Loni Hancock, D-Berkeley, outlaws magazines holding more than 10 rounds, even those that were grandfathered in under the state’s assault-weapons law. It passed the state Senate 25-14 on May 29 and is to be heard Tuesday by the Assembly Public Safety.

Assembly Bill 48 by Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, creates a state database to track all ammo purchases and makes it illegal to build your own high-capacity magazines. It passed the Assembly 46-26 on May 29 and is to be heard Monday by Senate Appropriations.

Assembly Bill 187 by Assemblymen Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, and Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, levies 10 percent tax on all ammo to benefit crime-prevention and mental-health services for children. It is languishing in Assembly Appropriations’ suspense file.

Assembly Bill 711 by Assemblyman Anthony Rendon, D-South Gate, would ban use of lead ammunition by California hunters. It passed the Assembly 44-21 on May 16 and is now languishing in state Senate Appropriations’ suspense file.

Criminy.

Other than that, I’m sort o’ speechless.

That “firm grip by an iron hand” leads to mass murder rather too often; no wonder they’re trying to eliminate all those damned guns held by private citizens.

Walmart’s new slogan ought to be “Always Waddle-butts. Always.”

Or “Where Misanthropy Lives!”

Read more about the CA ammo BS; it’d provide quite an opportunity for, ah, entrepreneurs. Somewhat riskier than mobile anal sac expression…but a lot more lucrative.

Maan! I missed so much here this week! and with no good stories to show for it! I mean, even the 2 ladies who wanted KFH&BBQ to host their ‘organic” produce market once a week for free ( did I mention it is a for profit company?) weren’t actually funny. OTOH I did meet some libertarians this week. They are going to PAY us to “park” their snow cone food truck in our parking lot and mix sugar and water in our commercial kitchen to satisfy the county regulators so they can get on with business.
