Onerous Gun Restrictions - This Laniferous-Land Fights-back Too:
Fox News reports that more shooters groups in US are fighting back against unreasonable restrictions that only effect lawful gun users while doing nothing to control criminals:
- In California, - since January, any "assault-style weapon" with an easily detachable magazine became illegal. (I continue to be perplexed as to what 'STYLE' has to do with anything.) - This California lawsuit says this is unconstitutional, not just because it will do nothing to stop violent criminals, but because it infringes on the Second Amendment.
The California Rifle and Pistol Association filed the suit in federal court in Santa Ana and said it plans to file others in the coming days and weeks. “They're coming at gun ownership from every angle,” said Chuck Michel of the California Rifle and Pistol Association. “The whole PR campaigns todemonize gun owners.
N.Z. Anti-Gun Police 'President' Cahill
These law changes sound familiar to the very similar nonsense that's being 'recommended' here in NZ by the Police Assoc. President Chris Cahill - this 'anti-gunner' is quoted as "wanting to clampdown on gun ownership and control."
- Police Assoc.President Cahill isnot on record as saying that he wants to clampdown on criminal gang violence.
Here is an example of one of his ridiculous "fictitious facts". He says that there is no sporting use for some styles of semi-automatic firearm .. but omits to make it clear that the reason only a few of this style of firearm are used for sport - is because a Police inspired Regulation restricts their use to only specially 'E' Category endorsed and fee paying licence holders having very expensive police specified gun safes ... Nobody else is allowed by regulation to even touch them!
This Police Detective and Association President makes misleading statements expecting the New Zealand public to follow like a mob of laniferous ungulates.
... Restrict their use - then say that nobody uses them - Really!
