California Lawmaker Pushes For Stricter Gun Control

posted on January 16, 2016

As if California gun owners didn’t already have excessively restrictive gun laws to deal with—which, by the way, are only obeyed by law-abiding gun owners, not violent criminals—state legislators there are trying to further restrict semi-automatic rifles, which they call “assault weapons.”

Assemblyman David Chiu, frustrated that it is easy to reload AR-15 type rifles, wants to ban detachable magazines, making such guns legal only if magazines are permanently attached. The state’s “bullet button” law making magazines difficult to remove quickly apparently isn’t good enough for Chiu. “Detachable magazines cost lives,” he said. “We must close the loopholes in our assault weapons ban.”

Such a ban is ridiculous, at best, since only law-abiding gun owners will follow the law, leaving criminals even better armed than their victims in the Golden State.
