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!

Patrons Of California Gun Store Got A Surprise When They Looked At Receipt

Firearms Unknown employee, Von, twirls a cardboard AR15 sign on the streets of Oceanside, California.

Firearms Unknown has decided to more accurately detail their sales receipts, and it’s not only going to tick off more snowflakes, but it’ll also make gun owners jump for joy at finally seeing a particular line correctly labeled.

taxation

Anyone who lives or has lived in the almost communist land of California and owned guns in the state knows that the Golden State harshly taxes firearms sales as a sort of punishment for having the nerve to want to use your Second Amendment rights in the liberal stronghold.

The tax is 9% in addition to a $25 mandatory DROS (dealer’s record of sale) fee, which is basically a Californian paying to register their own gun with the state. But, Firearms Unknown is sick of the state charging citizens the egregious fees to exercise their natural rights, and they showed it on their sales receipts.

Notice the line where it says 9% tax, it also says “Gov’t Theft AKA,” which is all that this tax is in the liberal cesspool we all know as California. It’s theft designed to discourage Californians from purchasing a gun. If the government is going to steal from gun owners because they chose to exercise a right, then Firearms Unknown is going to call it what it is: theft.

So far, the reactions to this receipt have all been positive. Most find it a little funny too since more and more Americans are seeing taxation as theft. It is nice to see that the whole state isn’t infested with the liberal mindset which believes that those who simply want to protect themselves should be punished.

It’s absolutely freeing to see companies beginning to show civilians how much money the government actually takes from them. It almost goes unnoticed when labeled a tax, but labeling it “theft” grabs a person’s attention and brings awareness to the bigger issue of not only the attempts to decrease gun sales but the continual hiking of taxes that we all suffer from.
