People stock up on long guns to beat California gun registry

long-guns

A new California long gun registry law gets implemented with the new year, and residents of the Golden State are purchasing rifles and shotguns in record numbers to beat the deadline.

Although John Deaser, owner of Sacramento’s Just Guns, said the law is temporarily boosting his sales by 30 to 50 percent, he calls the law an unnecessary invasion of privacy, according to Sacramento CBS channel 13.

“These are law-abiding citizens,” he said. “They’re not trying to beat the system or anything like that. They just don’t want to be tracked.”

CBS 13 reported:

The registry goes into effect on Jan. 1, and would require long gun owners to register their weapons like handgun owners already do. It would track the make, model and serial number of the gun, as well as the person who owns it.

Previously dealers would destroy personal information on long gun owners after a background check had been completed. Now they’ll register those purchases with the state.

Although the law’s supporters claim that it will help keep guns out of the wrong hands, its critics say criminals don’t walk into gun shops to purchase weapons — they buy them on the street or steal them from others.

        America’s Gun Deaths. More than all other industrialized nations combined. Keep up the intellectual arguments.

        • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

          The statistics do not Prove your theory…..The states and areas with the MOST RESTRICTIVE GUN REGULATIONS…HAVE THE HIGHEST CRIME AND MURDERS….Look at IL…and specifically Chicago….Chicago has the highest murder rate in the world…and it has the most Restictive Gun Laws…and the same is found in every similiar instance….Where as the states and areas with the least resitrictive gun laws have the LEAST CRIME AND MURDERS……HUM…Any correlation?????
          Taking guns away from Law Biding Citizens does not stop crime and murders….Because the Criminals….and they are Criminals because they do not follow the laws…will still get their hands on guns to commit crimes and murder….
          And to add to this…places light Britain…Australia and others that have confiscated the guns from law biding citizens are now wondering why Crime Rates are GOING UP…HUM…

          • Jim

            Australian gun murder rate iare not up. Quit playing the fool. Further more you are wrong. The states with the least gun laws have most gun deaths. You should check the stats. Alaska. louisianna and Montana have most gun deaths per capita and the least restrictive gun laws. restrictive laws. Now how does your “hmmm.”..sound. You bought the right wing propaganda without doing the research.

          • Redbullisyummy

            Hey you tell Jim that gun deaths don’t matter. The only thing that matters is our right to have as many guns as we want. It’s in the constitution and even if 30K people a year get shot we still have our right to carry our weapons.

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            The Probelm is that Liberals Like Jim and all the rest…..ONLY believe in the Liberal Talkiing Points because they have been INDOCTRINATED to believe EVERYTHING that their Handlers Fill their EMPTY HEADS WITH…..They are either BRAIN WASHED…..or in many cases BRAIN DEAD….

          • Redbullisyummy

            So are there any liberal talking points that you agree with?

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM…..I believe in FACT BASED things…and Liberal Talking Points are based in FANTASY AND FICTION…

          • Redbullisyummy

            So then you only believe in conservative talking points. You are accusing Jim of doing the exact same thing you are doing. If he’s not willing to see things your way and you’re not willing to see thing his way both of you are brainwashed. Jim could say you’ve been indoctrinated as well since you refuse to see anything outside of your viewpoints. I’m a staunch conservative just like you but we can’t point the finger at someone if we are doing the exact same thing.

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            READ…..I believe in FACTS…..NOT FANTASY….

          • Redbullisyummy

            But if you speak in absolutes and refuse to believe that there is an equally passionate side that needs to work with conservatives in order to meet common goals you are coming off as a person who lives in fantasy. I’m a staunch conservative just like you but nit everything we say or believe is absolute truth.

        • dmcmullen560

          The US is 3rd in the world for murders. Take away Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, & New Orleans, we drop to 4th from the bottom. These 4 cities have the toughest gun control laws in the nation. Go figure.

          • Jim

            That’s not the way you do stats. The scientific accepted way is per 100,000 population. Alaska has 20.4 deaths per 100,000. Illinois has 8.2 deaths per 100,000. Nice try though.

          • Redbullisyummy

            Hey quit bringing stats and logic into this debate. We as conservatives don’t function using that kind of logic!

          • Jim

            lol ..no kidding

          • Redbullisyummy

            Get out of here with all that science talk and take your science books with you! We’re not interested in any facts here!

          • Jim

            Ok Ok..the earth is flat. I get it.

          • Redbullisyummy

            Stop trying to educate my fellow conservatives! You are going to put doubts in their mind and make it harder for them to do my dirty work!

          • Redbullisyummy

            Exactly. As Americans we have a god given right to shoot each other if we please. Don’t tread on me and my gun rights!

        • Redbullisyummy

          Hey if we want to have people getting killed by firearms that’s our business. It doesn’t matter how many people die from gun violence it’s our constitutional right to do so!

  • RE Hafner

    Californicators in the land of fruits and nuts where communism flourishes and the state is broke as Hogan’s goat.

  • Jerry

    I wonder if California thinks people are buying all those guns to turn them in.

    • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

      I bet the Senator FOOLSTEIN believes so….

      • Jerry

        Then let her be one of the ones that goes to get them.

  • Jake Green

    Stupid Politicians really believe restricting our rights keeps guns out of the hands of the bad guys? Actually they know it ain’t so, this is nothing more than preparing for gun confiscation. By registering guns, Adolf Brown and his merry band of commies know where to send the Gestapo to pick up guns…less guns less resistance to the totaltarian “New World Order”

      Governor MOONBEAN….Needs to beam himself up into Outer Space where he belongs…and take the rest of the GUBBERMIT LOONS WITH YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE THE PLANET EARTH…Maybe they can all catch up with their Brain that is already Floating in Outer Space…But then maybe Not…

    • Jim

      Right wing paranoia is alive and well. Let me know how your gun works out when that cruise missle crawls up your ass.

    One reason I moved to Arizona 20 years ago the people in charge of the government there are out of there mind. Now days I talk to friends there they tell me all republican strong holds in southern California (Orange County) have been stamped out and replaced my liberal politicians. One reason you see political corruptions like in the city of Bell where the dems gave them self’s 1000% raises just before retiring to take advantage of the states crazy retirement system.

    I’m ashamed that my birth certificate shows CA as my state of birth.

    • DirtyDeedsDoneDirtCheap

      I think father time has made John Kerry’s forehead a sixhead.

    • Doug

      I don’t know how they issued a birth certificate to a guy named John Kerry’s Forehead?

      • Poppo

        Yes they did. He voted 23 times in the 2008 Presidential Election.

    • Jerry

      We forgive you.

    At the end of the video clip, the gal said that starting January 1, sales of all 10-round clips will be illegal. Not true. Starting January 1, sales of all clips GREATER THAN 10-round capacity will be illegal.

    • Poppo

      One of the lawmakers in Colorado who proposed a bunch of restrictive laws showed her knowledge of guns by making the statement proposing banning the sale of 10 shot clips: “In a few years, all the people of the state will have already shot all their 10 shot clips and won’t be able buy new ones so they wont be able to use their guns any more.”

    Just another VIOLATION of the SECOND AMENDMENT….No place in the Second Amendment does it give the Government at any level the right to Infringe on our Constitutional Rights…What part of the “Shall not be infrnged” DO THESE GUN GRABBERS NOT UNDERSTAND..ALONG WITH THE COURTS THAT DO NOT UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION…

    Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note
    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    • Jim

      What do you think well regulated means?

      • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

        What do you think… “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”….Means???

        Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note
        A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

        Typical Liberal method…Pick out the Pieces of what fits the Dangerous Radical Liberal Agenda…but leave out the rest…

        • Jim

          The phrase says a militia is “neccessary” for a free state. At the time it was written there was no standing army. That is all changed now. It is irrelevant. Like jefferson said “But I know also that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also and keep pace with the times.” –Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816.

            The Constitution is not a LIVING DOCUMENT…As you want it to be….There is a Process called Amendents and Amending it takes Congress makng the Amendment and then it must be Ratified by 2/3 of the States….All these Restrictive Gun Laws are passed by the states and some at the Federal Level are ways that Liberals are using to Circmvent this process…along with using the courts…that also are not ruling according to the Constitution in many cases….Because of all the Liberal Judges…

          • Jim

            Interesting since my opinion is quoting Warren Burger , the former Conservative Supreme court Chef Justice appointed by Nixon. Um ..that makes you another uniformed rethuglican.

  • Mace Tofu

    Rancho Cordova gave Sacramento $5 Million to help keep the KINGS . Now they want to raise our taxes again. What a waste of our tax dollars going to the KINGS. F’ the KINGS they suck as a team and we keep wasting tax payer dollars on their owners who are multi-millionaires and should pay for a new stadium if they want another one, we built 3 for them so far at what cost to the city?

    A state I’m proud to stay away from, California. Might as well call it what it is. Mexifornia,lock, stock and barrel.

        Welcome Poppo, looks like both of us arrived here on this planet around the same time, 1941. :) Sure has been some changes to this place over the past 40 years and none to the better.

        • Poppo

          We were born at just the right time. We got to witness the Ecstasy, and soon will watch the final Agony.

          AS God told us in the Bible, the expansion of knowledge has been exponential. The contraction in commonsense and moral values has been monumental. Somehow, man has determined that man and man alone is responsible for all the wonders that God has provided us. Now the ‘elite’ (those that can bend people to their will through bribes, lies, flattery, and other types of favors or coercion) have decided that they are going to rule the rest of the world. I cannot believe that every time we get a peek at the glory of God and the wonders of his Universe some part of the government takes credit and tells us that we are to provide the money and they will provide the brains to exploit it for the “good of everyone”.
          We now have a President who, left to his own devices, would have probably died from a drug overdose or aids before he was 25 ruling the world by edict and the support of the television and newspaper reporters, cheered on by Hollywood and various morally bankrupt groups. Most of the unwashed, unlearned masses can be bribed, drugged, or enrolled in the ‘movement’. The rest of us are being watched and there is someone ‘taking notes’.
          Our economy has been shredded, our National debt is out of control, the Nation is ruled essentially by 9 people wearing black robes and doing what the President, the Speaker of the House, and the Majority Leader of the Senate desire. The bankers are riding the bubble of the Dow and Nasdaq. When the bubble bursts, the 10% will fall back on their foreign numbered accounts and lament their poor luck. I will probably be taken out in the first wave, but will wake up in the arms of God. Come soon, Lord Jesus!

        California has a higher GDP than the Deep South states combined though. Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia though. :-/
