California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “Safety For All” Act is a ballot initiative that would further beef up the state’s already harsh gun-control laws by calling for the confiscation of magazines holding over 10 rounds and requiring background checks for ammunition purchases. While the anti-gun politician has touted his proposals as a response to the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, he is facing opposition from the California State Sheriffs’ Association—including the vocal condemnation of the sheriff of San Bernardino County.Sheriff John McMahon sat down for an exclusive interview with investigative reporter Ginny Simone to explain why this legislation will only hurt well-intentioned gun owners without hindering criminals or terrorists. He concluded with a call to action: “My true belief is, you’re not involved in the process, you really don’t have any right to complain. Voice your opinion, and vote.” Watch the video on NRA News here.
San Bernardino Sheriff Condemns Gun-Control Initiative
Almost as soon as the voting was over, President Biden once again said that he wants to sign a ban on pretty much every firearm sold in the U.S. Though he likely doesn't have the votes to do so in this Congress, this balance of power does give him some opportunities to go after our freedom.
Semi-automatic firearms have been popularly sold to private citizens since the late-19th century. They are the most-popular design sold today and have clear constitutional protections. So, no, the president doesn't get to tell us we can't own them.
