“Sensible Gun Laws” Not So “Sensible”

“New” National Firearms Agreement.

I think the main purpose of this new national firearms agreement & indeed most of the past laws & legislation, is simply to make it harder for law abiding citizens to purchase & own a firearm. Now you need to ask yourself WHY would the government want to STOP us from owning a gun? What advantage is there to society in making it difficult for law abiding citizens to possess a firearm?

Today I thought I would write a guest post on a subject that I have normally avoided.  That is firearms, gun control and protecting the Second Amendment.  Now, the situation I am writing on currently applies only to California. So why do you care, if you don’t live in this left wing state run by crazies? If the left has its way, these new laws will spread to other areas.

If Hillary Clinton wins the White House, a radical left wing Supreme Court, that will impact future generations and may be irreversible, you should be concerned about what is happening in California. The new laws that have been passed here may be appearing in many of your states soon.

On July 1, six new gun control laws were signed by the governor, Jerry Brown. Then, a few days later, a seventh was signed. The following is a summary of the new laws — these aren’t proposals or bills waiting for debate. They are now LAWS in the State of California. The one good piece of news is that the people of California can, through the process of petitioning, force the Assembly to put these laws up for a vote.

SIGNED BOTH-  Assembly Bill 1135 and Senate Bill 880 would make changes of monumental scale to California’s firearm laws by reclassifying hundreds of thousands of legally owned semi-automatic rifles as “assault weapons.”  This legislation effectively outlaws magazine locking devices, more commonly known as “bullet buttons”.  As of January 2017, all AR-type of firearms and even some hunting rifles will no longer be legally sold in the state. There is still a lot of confusion about the law. Depending on the way it is interpreted, it may even cover M1 carbines.

If you register your gun as an assault weapon, there are draconian limitations on how you own and transport the gun. You can never sell, give, lend, or trade an assault weapon to another person. Nor can you hand down an “assault weapon” to your spouse, children, or grandchildren. Upon your death, it is turned over to the state for destruction. If you move out of the state, you cannot move back into the state with your guns.

SIGNED Assembly Bill 1511 effectively ends the long-standing practice of temporarily loaning a firearm for lawful purposes. Under this legislation, the ability to loan a firearm to anyone other than a family member would now be prohibited unless conducted through a dealer, absent very narrow and limited exceptions. A simple loan to a trusted friend for a few days would take almost a month to complete, from loan to return. It now requires two background checks, two 10-day waiting periods, two fees and multiple trips to a gun dealer.

SIGNED – Assembly Bill 1695 creates a 10-year firearm prohibition for someone convicted of falsely reporting a lost or stolen firearm.

SIGNED – Senate Bill 1235  places unjustified and burdensome restrictions on the purchase of ammunition and requires IDs and background checks for ammunition purchases. This requires a state-wide database to track such purchases. This law goes into effect in 2019. It permits the state to monitor the types of ammunition you buy, thereby identifying whether you have firearms that are not registered. It would be a crime to import ammunition from another state.

SIGNED – Senate Bill 1446  bans the simple possession of ammunition feeding devices/magazines that are capable of holding more than 10 cartridges. Even the ones that are currently grandfather in would have to be turned in or destroyed.

SIGNEDAssembly Bill 857 requires serialization and registration of virtually every firearm possessed in the State. It requires anyone who manufactures or assembles a homemade firearm to first apply for a unique serial number or other marking from the state Department of Justice, which must then be affixed to the weapon. In 2014, Brown vetoed a similar bill by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, stating, “I appreciate the author’s concerns about gun violence, but I can’t see how adding a serial number to a homemade gun would significantly advance public safety.”

Here’s what California residents can do

Under California law, if we collect 365,880 signatures on all seven petitions, the laws will be placed on hold and brought up for vote in 2018. This gives us time to campaign and educate the voters, so that we can block these laws from taking effect.

Currently thousands of volunteers are collecting signatures on all seven petitions, and it is looking like we have a good chance. The signatures have to be turned in by September 28, 2016.  California is being run into the ground by power-mad, anti-gun Democrats, but the fact remains that it is one of our most populous states and home to tens of millions of gun owners.

Calguns and the NRA are among the groups that are helping to support this effort.  Unfortunately, we are not receiving any support from three large sporting goods chains that sell firearms. They are blocking us from collecting signatures at their locations. In case you want to express your feeling to them or boycott their stores, they are Dicks Sporting Goods, Big Five and Sportsman’s Warehouse.

If you are registered to vote in California, I urge you to find a copy of the petitions and sign them. Non-residents can also help with financial support. Donations can be made to www.vetogunmageddon.org. Help us stop this attack on the 2nd Amendment because it won’t stop here. The anti-gun groups have been planning draconian laws like this for decades.

Thanks  Howard

Australian Gun Owners Fail To Support Each Other!!!

Well I guess all you gun owners better go out & purchase a bow, because if we can not be bothered to support each other in fighting gun control then we ARE GOING TO LOSE OUR GUNS!
I posted this petition about a month or so ago, & last time I looked, all I had was 262 signatures!!! 262; how many gun owners are there in Australia?
I advertised this petition on gun forums on Facebook, & on popular media outlets on the net, & 262 signatures is all I got. If this is any indication of how much we care about keeping our guns, then we are already lost. Oh but I forgot, SHE’LL BE RIGHT MATE!

PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES.
Parliament House
6 Macquarie Street,
Sydney, NSW 2000.
The Petition of Keith H. Burgess.
President of the New England Colonial Living History Group.
Brings to the attention of the House the matter of firearms licensing in relation to muzzle-loading pistols (percussion locks excluded).
At this present time, working replica (replicas of original 17th and 18th century antique muzzle-loading pistols) muzzle-loading pistols of the lock types matchlock, wheellock, tinderlock, doglock, snaphance, and flintlockcan only be owned by a person possessing a category H gun licence, and these pistols can only be legally fired on a registered gun range. This requirement excludes the use of these antique replicas for Living History and Historical Re-enactment purposes. It also excludes the use of these antique replicas for use as a back-up safety for muzzle-loader hunters hunting on private property who are hunting with single shot muzzle-loading rifles or smoothbores.
Historical Re-enactment groups and Living History organisations have re-enactment rules which preclude the use of live ammunition and preclude the use of a ramrod during any and all re-enactment displays. There is also a permit requirement; this permit is for historical re-enactment organisations wishing to conduct an historical re-enactment event involving the possession and use of firearms by participants. Clause 61 – Firearms Regulation 2006.
Replicas of muzzle-loading pistols of the lock types mentioned are slow to load and require a good deal of knowledge and training to ensure the workability of this type of gun. Ignition even when used by a competent person can not be guaranteed. Therefore these muzzle-loading guns are not suitable for criminal use.
The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly to change the licensing requirement for these replica antique muzzle-loading pistols (percussion locks excluded) from the present category H class licence to the category B class licence.

PLEASE SIGN my petition: Fair and sensible firearms legislation for muzzle-loader users.

Law-abiding people with proper training should be given the option to defend themselves with a firearm.

Self-defence in Australia is frowned on by the government & authorities. Self-defence is not a legal reason for owning a firearm. If your house in invaded, the government advises that you should leave your home by the nearest exit. This is NOT always possible, & once you are outside, your family is an easy target. The Australian government does NOT care about a citizen’s safety, & would rather see women raped & the whole family killed rather than allow a law abiding citizen to use a firearm to protect his/her family.

Standing Your Ground: What To Know About Your Rights to Home Defense

Click here to view the original post.

SHUT UP! 152/366 You have a right to defend your home and family from force and violence. Self-defense laws have become complex and can be very different from one jurisdiction to the next. You should know a few things about your rights to home defense.

Immediate Threat

There must be an immediate threat in order to claim self-defense. This means the threat is right in front of you and is more than likely going to affect you soon. This is important because self-defense no longer applies if the situation ends or the aggressor leaves.

Reasonable Fear of Harm

You must also have a reasonable fear of harm to exercise your rights to home defense. This means that a reasonable person should be able determine that you were more than likely going to be harmed. This is in place to ensure that irrational responses like shooting a delivery person cannot be counted as self-defense.

Responding Proportionally

If you do take action, then you are allowed only to use the level of force that is being employed against you. This means you cannot use lethal force against someone who did nothing but reach for your body. Responding proportionally is difficult to judge in the heat of the moment. If you face criminal charges, a Keyser defense attorney in Minnesota recommends discussing your options with a lawyer.

Your Duty to Retreat in Some States

Some states make it your duty to try to retreat from any situation before violence occurs. You cannot claim any self-defense in these jurisdictions unless you can show that you tried to retreat and avoid conflict first. If home defense is important to you, then check if you have a duty to retreat in your area.

Trying To Standing Your Ground

Some states have stand your ground laws that negate the duty to retreat. This means you can act in self-defense without trying to avoid the conflict first. Proportional response still applies and lethal force is not part of stand your ground in some states.

The Castle Doctrine

The final right is called the Castle Doctrine. This allows you to use lethal force if someone has illegally entered your home. The exact situation and laws in your state will dictate the circumstances under which you can use the Castle Doctrine to explain your self-defense.

It is important to act with care when faced with a home defense situation. Know the law and try to contact the authorities immediately if you feel threatened in or around your home.
