Even though California is known for being the home of many anti-gun liberals, gun sales are soaring before new anti-gun laws go take affect. Most likely, some liberals as well as California’s few conservatives are arming themselves before it’s too late to legally do so.
Sales of firearms in California spiked in anticipation of new gun control laws set to be enacted Jan. 1.
According to the Los Angeles Times, some gun stores in the Golden State have reported a double in sales since July when the laws passed the state legislature and later signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.
As a result of California’s 10- day waiting period prior to a purchase of a firearm, gun consumers are presently rushing to stores to make the deadline in time for the week and a half wait before the new laws are enacted.
California residents will no longer be able to purchase a semiautomatic rifle with a magazine release button that enables a quick removal and replacement of ammunition magazines. Semiautomatic rifles bought prior Jan. 1 can be kept by the owners but must be registered with the state as “assault rifles.”
