Three New Anti-Gun Laws Go Into Effect In California

posted on December 31, 2015

On Friday, three new anti-gun laws will go into effect in California. S.B.199 states that unless pellet, BB and airsoft guns are brightly colored, they may not be displayed in public—however, opponents point out, as many “real” firearms are now available in a variety of colors, the law is unlikely to do much. 

A.B.1014 allows law-enforcement officers or family members to obtain a so-called “gun violence restraining order” prohibiting an individual from lawfully possessing or receiving firearms or ammunition for a specific period of time with no due process. It also allows police to confiscate legally owned weapons from individuals and hold them up to 21 days. 

Currently, concealed-carry permit holders are exempt from regulations prohibiting carry within 1,000 feet of schools and colleges, but S.B.707 does away with this exemption. Besides making California students more vulnerable, the law also mandates harsh penalties for possessing even a single round of ammunition on campuses, regardless of whether a firearm is present.

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
