    All of because of a dead California Condor.

    I suppose he signed the lead ban so it wasn't a total defeat for the gun-grabbers in Sacramento. Luckily, Brown heard the message from us at Calguns loud and clear on the most of the remaining bills, the most damaging being SB 374 which would have turned any rifle capable of accepting a detachable magazine as an assault weapon. CA gun owners finally rallied and yelled loud and clear, enough is enough.

    Sacramento Bee, I think, ran an editorial saying that passing the bans would likely lead to Colorado-style recalls.

    Gee, maybe they're starting to catch on.

However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake free people get to make only once." Judge Alex Kozinski, 9th District

    The democrats have a super majority, don't they?

    So the veto can be overridden, I think.

    Still, good for Jerry Brown.

    I've often been surprised at the libertarian leanings of Governor Moonbeam. This is a guy who refused to live in the governor's mansion because it was too expensive to maintain, and mothballed it (he lived in an apartment in downtown Sacramento) for his first term.


    > “I don’t believe that this bill’s blanket ban on semiautomatic rifles would reduce criminal activity or enhance public safety enough to warrant this infringement on gun owners’ rights,” Brown said.

    Any idea what became of the bill that would require permits to purchase ammo?


    Edit...

    Did some digging. SB 53, which would have required a paid permit to purchase ammunition, is dead... for now.

    The lead ammo ban wasn't an anti gun ban that's why it passed. It was really put up as a "good for the environment" type of bill. I'm glad things turned out the way it did.

    I really hate to see my favorite gun shops close down because of these bills. Those guys work hard.
