America wake up! The legislature in California has just passed SB-374, the Assault Weapons Ban! We sounded the alarm on this bill May 31st, 2013 in our article titled, “SB 374: California Set To Attack Second Amendment By Demanding Gun Registration.” The California Senate and Assembly have both passed this bill, it will now head to the desk of California Governor Jerry Brown. This bill is the first step to confiscation as it requires registration of your arms in addition to branding many of those arms as assault weapons.
The bill from the California Legislature: SB-374 Firearms: assault weapons
SB374, as amended, Steinberg. Firearms: assault weapons.
Existing law regulates the sale, carrying, and control of firearms, including assault weapons, and requires assault weapons to be registered with the Department of Justice. Violation of these provisions is a crime. Existing law defines a semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and other specified features and a semiautomatic weapon that has a fixed magazine with a capacity to accept 10 or more rounds as an assault weapon.
This bill would, instead, classify a semiautomatic centerfire rifle that does not have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept no more than 10 rounds as an assault weapon. The bill would require a person who, between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2013, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool, and who, on or after January 1, 2014, possesses that firearm, to register the firearm by July 1, 2015. By expanding the definition of a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Please share this with your family and friends! Call California Governor Jerry Brown and tell him to not sign this bill!
