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!

    At some point in the future there is going to be tragic thing occur.
    Once the state of California successfully disarms/underarms its citizens there is an criminal element of society that will send thank you cards to gov. Jerry brown and the democratic super majority in Sacramento for this gift.
    Once they know that californians/victims are essentially neutered and at the mercy of an 911 operator, they will have a field day.
    Once they know they can commit a violent crime with a AK,AR,SKS and only have to face a single shot shotgun, the games on.
    This law ONLY effects people that possess,buys,sells, uses weapons legally.
    MS13, gang bangers, murders, laraza members, drug dealers. Does anyone think that this lovely group will line up and register their weapons? How many registrations are they going to receive out of south central? That Maxine Waters district.
    The only time you will see an assault weapon out in the open here is when some nuttball jumps over a cliff.
    The very idea of going up against AK with a shotgun is nuts. And that’s what our concerned California state government is doing to the citizens. Don’t worry, if you see a assault weapon call the police, they will be there soon.
    And they wonder why the population is going down here. Last year was the first time that more people moved out rather than moved in the state.
    The general consensus is to sell out and leave this GOOFY state. This place has slid off hard since 1991 with no prospect of coming back, only in dreams.
    A word of warning and wisdom. When on your vacation you want to go see Disneyland, go to Kissimmee Florida and see Disney world. There is much more places of entertainment in that entire area. A lot less crime too. If you have a business, consider Las Vegas area or anywhere in Texas or Arizona.
    The beaches here are tourist traps with little and expensive parking.
    California has slid off into the murk of its own drug induced fantasies.
    I have lived here since the early 70s. I remember the last time brown was governor and he screwed it up back then too.
    I would have second thoughts on having or doing anything to do with California.

      You forgetting the biggest state of Pedophile judges, lawyers, and cops.

  • Uzziel

    So… prepare to start shooting, already! What’s the damn holdup!?

  • Glacialhills

    Funny , they use a picture of an M1 Garand…it uses an internal enbloc clip that only holds 8 rounds. One of the only guns not on the list I think.

    • Jean

      Actually, I think that’s the POINT – though most non-gun-owners are too dumb to pick up on it (inclduing me, though I recognized the M-1, I didn’t remember it’s an integral clip. 😛 )

    Most Cali are Liberals they get what they deserve. If they cannot figure out they are no longer cops and work for Black Water and DYNCORP. Which means they are foreign soldiers (blue helmets) then Cali gets what they deserve.

    Hmmm…a 2015 due date…conflicting indeed. Part of me Sez let’s get down to business already and the other appreciates the time to plan and hopefully get out of dodge. But I reckon by then something at the fed level will be in place

      I want to thank my enemies for giving me time to prep.
      I still need to acquire a lot more skills and improve my physical fitness level. This takes time…
      Every year (I hope!..), month, week and even a single day that they give me, will turn out to help me and my family.

    You are all missing the BIG picture! When they get the people disarmed, it will be easier to herd them into the box cars!

  • Michael

    It is past due for those in California to stand up and begin tossing their reps out. They need to send a message like Colorado did, even though it will be difficult and close. Otherwise, SHUT UP and behave like the SLAVES YOU ARE! WE don’t want to hear about it!!!

  • John Rambo

    Never though “home turf” could become “down range”….yet here we are. Sad.

    Kalifornia…land of the slave home of the Nazis. Hope you slaves enjoy living on your knees.

    Time to Oust Brown.

    Ousting Brown.

    There IS no such thing as an assault rifle/weapon. This is like calling a fork an obesity accelerator. The AR in AR-15 is for Armalite who originally manufactured the rifle. Using their moronic ideas law abiding citizens don’t have to register their guns as they are “defense weapons” and have never been intended to be used in an assault. Soon, it may be used to defend ourselves against the exact reason the 2nd amendment was included to begin with…the force of out of control government.

    There used to be an old saying, “The two biggest threats to your guns is rust and politicians.

    • Jean

      … And with composites these days, I’m not too sure of rust.

      But politicians are like baby’s diapers: they should be changed frequently, and for the same reason.

    Commiefornia in the Ununited Socialist States of America. Step 1: borrow more money than this country has or will have – from – Communist Red China. Step 2: Make the people homeless and jobless and beholding to the Government. Step 3: Dissarm America. Step 4: Make Socialized Medicine a Law for all the people that cannot afford it.
    Seems like we are on the way to being a more Communistic country than the Commies that we fought against. Oh yea – give guns to criminals in Mexico
