    Will California’s Gun Control be Coming to Your Hometown?

    Dave Dolbee published on May 11, 2016 in General, News

    Not likely, but do not count it out too fast. Yes, San Francisco’s Gavin Newsome has a new ballot proposal that is way beyond radical—even for the anti-gun left. It would seem he has taken the most radical gun control proposals and pushed them over the cliff. But does he have a chance of getting them passed? Yes. At least some of these proposals have been passed before in other states, before failing under the weight of the costs to implement and support them.


    The Coalition for Civil Liberties first reached out to The Shooter’s Log with this but several other pro Second Amendment groups, nine law enforcement groups—representing thousands of police, prosecutors, and peace officers—that oppose Newsom’s proposal. He has zero groups on his side there are even some groups that will definitely surprise you have all come out against Newsome’s proposals. Here is the breakdown from the Coalition for Civil Liberties.

    According to the official language submitted to the California Attorney General, Gavin Newsom’s anti-gun initiative will include, among others, the following provisions:

    House-to-House Confiscation of Private Property

    Millions of legal magazines will need to be sold out-of-state, taken out-of-state, or seized by law enforcement. Many legal firearms require magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds, making them effectively illegal. This backdoor gun ban is not just on future sales, but forces you to surrender your existing private property to law enforcement.

    Forcing Legal Ammunition Vendors Out of Business

    Thousands of ammunition retailers will be prohibited from selling ammunition and possibly forced to close their doors. Vendors will be required to pay additional fees to have their employees authorized as a seller of ammunition. The ammunition vendors will be prohibited from selling ammunition into California, meaning no direct ammunition sales through the mail to your residence. Your access to exercise your Second Amendment rights is being artificially restricted.

    Leave Your Ammo at the Range

    By criminalizing the private sale or transfer of ammunition, it will be a crime to share ammo with a friend or family member to finish up a hunting trip or day at the range. The initiative would prohibit leaving the range with any unused ammunition purchased at the range.


    Costly Fees & Long Waits for You

    This latest attempt to coerce you into giving up your weapons includes yet another illegal fee under the guise of more background checks, including for people who have already been screened by law enforcement. Newsom wants you to pay another $50 fee and wait 30 days for authorization.

    And the biggest piece, the background checks on ammunition sales, was tried already in New York. It was a huge failure and was abandoned by Governor Cuomo, (also a Democrat) when it was determined that it was going to cost $100 million of taxpayer money. The system was going to be flawed, incomplete and useless. This is what Californians have to look forward to.

    Who is the Coalition for Civil Liberties?

    The Coalition is a diverse group—not just traditional gun owners—but also law enforcement officials, victims of gun violence, LGBT advocates, minority rights groups, and much more. Californians are concerned that this isn’t just a new gun law, but a backdoor attempt to seize private property from law-abiding citizens.

    Never Letting a Tragedy Go to Waste

    Newsom is using the San Bernardino tragedy to further his own political ambitions at the expense of our Second Amendment rights. Newsome has suggested that gun control laws would have prevented an ISIS-inspired attack. He conveniently forgets that someone who passed the already-stringent background check process legally purchased the weapons used in that attack.

    Rather than pay another government fine for exercising your Second Amendment rights, why not support the fight to stop Newsom’s scam? The Coalition for Civil Liberties is the official opposition group to Newsom’s proposal. Please visit

    I guess the anti-gun legislators have learned a lesson or two from the anti-abortion legislators. I'm surprised that Newsome doesn't require compulsory trips to view dead gunshot victims at city morgues before issuing permits to gun owners wishing to purchase ammunition. :rolleyes:

    Why, here in Australia, I can have as many gun magazines as I like........whether I read them or not.

    Newsome's a jerk. Just another limousine liberal. There are some excellent gun rights groups in the state but it's a constant uphill climb. The left is firmly entrenched in the large population centers and they hold the political reins.

    I fled the state 3.5 years ago and now I'm in Oregon and it's following in Kalifornia's footsteps. I knew we should have moved to Idaho.

    True - SO AZ has some, but not as many as California. Hope they keep handing them freebies so that most stay out of here.

    It's all coming to my state with a vengeance next February unless something unexpected happens at the polls. It's not just the Democrats following socialist progressivism like lemmings, the state Republicans don't have any game and don't want to have any game. They have their own agenda and have turned their backs on citizens pursuing support of the 2A including widespread grass roots recall efforts against the worst of the anti 2A lot.

    I tried that, they got very pissy with me. "What caliber? What brand? What make? What velocity? Know who sells it locally and for how much?" Hey, I'M a gun owner wishing to purchase ammo and I wanted to see what did what! For some reason this was discouraged. @&%*#~!

    They also need to run that wall East to West about fifty miles North of Sacramento. The State of Jefferson will prevail!

    @3M-TA3 Same here in Oregon and most of them have been in office so long that they're pretty much locked in until retirement.

    Oregon is the state I was referring to in my post. Unfortunately I live within sight and stench of Pyongyang on the Willamette. I was born here and have lived here long before all the outsiders invaded and crapped on everything that was good.

    Sounds like you got invaded by people who changed things where they lived, and then hated it. So they moved to a new area and changed things to be exactly like they were where they hated it.

    Welcome to liberal-ville, where people come and bring their high taxes, bad habits and incorrigible kids.

    I gave up fighting in CA, it was a futile. It wore me out which is part of the tactics of the left. The Tea Party group I was involved with was one of the ones screwed over by the IRS as well. And the cost of living was stupid expensive, unless you're on the dole, then it really is the "Golden State".

    Yeah, the nanny state hand wringers pollute everything they touch. What really frosts me is that they're positively convinced they're on the moral high ground. Well, I'm damn near ready to start playing king of the hill.

    Uncle sam and ben ladin are walking down the beach, discussing the war, one of them kicks a rock that reveals a magic lamp. Out puffs a genie "I AM THE GENIE OF THE LAMP! YOU MAY EACH HAVE ONE WISH!
    "Me first, me first! shouts bin ladin, he is unclean, an infidel! Me first!"
    Uncle sam says "you go right ahead, be my guest".
    The genie says " WHAT IS YOUR WISH?"
    "I want a wall around Afghanistan, total isolation, leave us alone, no one in, no one out." Says ben ladin.
    IT IS DONE says the genie.
    Tell me about this wall, says uncle sam, I'm kinda an engineer at heart.
    Not yet..says uncle Sam ..FILL IT WITH WATER.

    (Moral) need more walls.

    California is ridiculous. They certainly skirt the line of infringement. Interestingly there are pockets of people that will push back in CA. Yes, they are the minority but they love their state and have in the past become very vocal when lawmakers are getting excessive in their gun control ideas.
