Wednesday was the deadline to buy any AR-15 in the state of California. The ban does not cover the ownership of the, but it does prevent the sell of the gun from here on out. The ban officially goes into effect on January 1, 2017.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, now an insider has given warning that a ban of all semi-automatic rifles is coming soon.
Recently, Gun Owners of California’s (GOC) Executive Director Sam Paredes had a frank conversation with Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins, and told him to buckle up for an all-out ban on semi-automatic long guns in the coming legislative session.
According to Paredes, the “assault weapons” and bullet button bans passed in 2016 were only a stepping stone toward California lawmakers’ real goal of banning all semi-automatic rifles.
“These laws are the tip of the iceberg here in California. We expect they are going to introduce legislation to totally ban semi-automatic long guns in California. They will do this because they know we will come up with a new way to beat their latest ban–the ‘bullet button’ ban–if given time.”
“They had a bill for this last year that we were able to kill. We think they will bring it up again and they will also introduce legislation to put in place a one-gun-per-month of any kind purchase limit. This limit will apply whether it’s a handgun or a long gun, in order to try to slow down the sales of guns in California.”
Now here is where it gets interesting, these laws will only apply to the law-abiding citizens. You know why? Because criminals do not obey the law. This just puts up more blocks for the good guys to do the right thing when the bad guys are doing the wrong thing.
