California Senate Votes 28-8 to Exempt Itself from California Gun Laws

They voted 28-8 to exempt themselves from the gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the California.

You think maybe this will cause Californians to rise up? NOPE! It happened 5 years ago and since then, California has passed a plethora of other gun laws…that only apply to citizens.

The California state Senate agrees with Charlie Rangel that they "deserve' to own guns but the citizens do not!

Yes, you heard me right! The exemption was created in 2011 and the California legislature has passed a number of gun laws since. Pretty easy when you are passing bills that do not apply to you!

It is not the only special privileges California legislators provide themselves!

They do not pay red light camera bills or for gasoline!

How does it all happen so easily in California? The Washington Post explains:

Attempts by a handful of reformers to require politicians to provide a full annual disclosure of the benefits received from the public treasury have been rebuffed. Currently, government officials must file a statement of economic interests revealing income from any source other than a local, state or federal government agency. Gifts worth more than $50 also must be disclosed, but lawmakers rejected a bill that would have prohibited acceptance of concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, spa treatments, golf outings and other benefits from lobbyists trying to buy votes.

Bills of this nature never meet an honest fate in which roll-call votes put members on the record as favoring or opposing each idea. Instead, reform measures are held in committee to die quietly as legislative deadlines pass. As of last week, it’s effectively impossible for a bill to become law if it hasn’t already passed in at least one of the chambers.

…and it just goes on and on!

The California state Senate agrees with Charlie Rangel that they "deserve' to own guns but the citizens do not!

Red Skelton said so eloquently in his commentary on the Pledge of Allegiance:

 

And to the Republic — A Republic: a sovereign state in which power is invested into the representatives chosen by the people to govern; and the government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

California has it backwards, they are running with the method of “from the leaders to the people.”

That is why I joined the 5 million people who have fled California within the last decade.

You can take me out of Texas in a pine box, and even then I will be kicking and screaming!

Next Up on Gun Control Agenda: Ammunition Background Checks

ammunition background checksTim Brown

When the gun grabbers can’t get all of the guns, they go after the bullets. Though Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom has hypocritically led the charge against the rights of gun owners while having tax payer funded armed security, he is now pushing to require background checks to purchase ammunition.

If you can’t get the guns, then you go after the ammo. Without the ammunition, the guns are basically worthless.

Guns in the News reports:

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, in his quest to bolster his gun-ban credentials as he runs for governor in 2018, is pushing a handful of restrictions that would further devastate the rights of law-abiding Golden State gun owners who have already seen their freedoms infringed again and again.

Newsom’s proposal would, among other things:

  • Ban possession of and confiscate hundreds of thousands of lawfully possessed magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds;
  • Require licensing of all ammunition vendors and drastically limit the places where ammunition could be sold;
  • Require ammunition buyers to undergo a background check before they could purchase any ammunition; and
  • Turn law-abiding citizens into criminals should they fail to report lost or stolen firearms to police within a limited amount of time after they “should have known” a firearm was missing.

Newsom’s restrictions come in the form of a proposed ballot amendment, and he and his cohorts will need at least 365,880 signatures from registered California voters to qualify the initiative for this November’s ballot. Using paid signature gatherers, those signatures will cost several million dollars to collect. But billionaire statists like Michael Bloomberg, gun-control groups and other “progressive” organizations like The Joyce Foundation are collectively throwing hundreds of millions of dollars into a national campaign to demonize gun owners across the country, so it’s obvious they will spend what’s necessary to expand the fight in California.

Of course, we are talking about San Francisco, a place that has been dubbed the Sodom & Gomorrah of the united States. It is a place where the Constitution, law and the Bible have been already trampled upon. As Newsom pushes this ballot initiative, consider that in this first quarter of 2016, he has already raised $1 million from people who gave at least $5,000! More than that has poured in from others.

Newsom’s proposal has been rightly criticized by The California State Sheriff’s Association. The organization of sheriffs wrote, “Effectively, this measure will create a new class of criminals out of those that already comply with common sense practices that now exist.”

That’s exactly what lawless people do. They engage in criminal activity and then attempt to turn the law on its head and turn law-abiding people into criminals. The fact that this is being put on a ballot is evidence of that, as the Constitution that Newsom swore to uphold acknowledges that the people of San Francisco have God-given rights to keep and bear arms. It is not open to a vote nor discussion. Gavin Newsom is an enemy of the people, the Constitution and God.
