For gun owners who have paid attention during the past decade(s), California Democrats are in open war against the Second Amendment. They couch the war in neutral terms and phrases like “gun safety” and “protecting California families”—lulling some innocent-minded people into dropping their guard—then swoop in with more gun laws that insidiously lead to more gun laws that inevitably invite more gun laws that certainly result in more gun laws.
Fox example, California adopted so-called “universal” background checks in the early 1990s. Democrats followed the implementation of those checks with firearm registration requirements and firearm confiscation laws. They also put in place a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, a one-firearm-a-month purchase limit for handguns, and Gun Violence Restraining Orders—a new, not-so-sophisticated system of gun confiscation put in place after all the gun controls failed to stop the May 23, 2014, Santa Barbara attacker who shot three people to death and hacked three others.
California Democrats are now pushing to expand the one-firearm-a-month handgun purchase limit to include long gun purchases as well. In other words, California residents would be limited to a one-gun-of-any-kind purchase limit each month.
Perhaps you ask, ‘How could they ever enforce such a limit?’ The answer is simple: They can enforce it because the people went along with “universal” background checks in the 1990s and firearm registration in the 21st century. So the state government theoretically knows where every law-abiding gun owner and every law-abiding gun owner’s firearm(s) reside. The transfer of a single gun between law-abiding citizens cannot take place except under the government’s purview via a background check.
That emphasis is present because these background checks, registration requirements, purchase limitations, and waiting periods only apply to law-abiding citizens. Criminals continue to get guns and use them as they see fit. If you want proof of this, simply consider the Dec. 2, 2015, San Bernardino terror attack. Those attackers carried rifles they acquired by circumventing the myriad California gun laws, and they also carried two handguns they acquired by submitting to background checks, waiting periods, etc. In other words, they made a laughingstock out of California leftists who constantly insinuate that gun control makes society safer.
Think about it this way—On Dec. 2, 2015, California had “universal” background checks, firearm registration laws, confiscation laws, one-firearm-a-month purchase limits for handguns, Gun Violence Restraining Orders, and a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, among many other gun controls, yet the San Bernardino attackers had no problem using their firearms to kill 14 innocents.
Democrats responded to the San Bernardino attack by pushing even more gun control.
