CA Senate Approves Ban on Semi-Auto Rifles, Background Checks on Ammo

The insanity never ceases:

The measures include a requirement that Californians who want to buy ammunition, and the vendors who sell it, would have to submit personal information for a background check to determine whether they have a criminal record, severe mental illness or a restraining order that would disqualify them from owning guns…

The Senate also approved a bill that would outlaw the sale, purchase and manufacture in California of semiautomatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines. SB 374 also would require those who own such weapons to register them with the state.

Other measures approved by the Senate would ban the possession of ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 bullets, and regulate mechanisms, called “bullet buttons,” that allow the quick replacement of ammunition magazines on semiautomatic rifles.

Basically bans most of the rifles out there, and violates due process rights by preventing people from owning a gun who have not been convicted of a crime.

    It’s not a right if the state can take it away.
