CA Lawmakers Give Los Angeles Gun Owners 60 Days To Turn THESE In Or Else

Los Angeles high capacity magazine ban

It never ceases to amaze us that despite a strongly worded 2nd Amendment giving constitutional protection to gun owners, anti-gun legislators are always on the prowl to destroy and dismantle our rights. California law already prohibits the manufacturing of high-capacity magazines, but Los Angeles city council members voted unanimously to go one step surther take them away from people who already owned them before the previous law went into effect.

In a direct affront to the 2nd Amendment and an outright challenge to the NRA to, "bring it on” if they want to sue, the LA city council voted 12 to 0 to take away already existing ammo magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. Residents of Los Angeles have 60 days from the time the law goes into effect to destroy, legally sell or surrender these magazines or face charges.

Never mind that magazines such as these being banned are almost never used to in the commission of a crime, but have a few high profile strikes against them, lawmakers are hellbent on making cosmetic changes that would make no difference in the event of a madman on a killing spree. In case such foolish lawmakers haven't heard, it is already illegal to kill someone. If a madman is insane enough to take the life of any innocent individual and cross all societal norms while slaughtering people, it is pretty evident that individuals such as these won't abide by such a frivolous law that restricts ammo magazines to 10 rounds.

This is just common sense, something our anti-gun lawmakers seem to be utterly devoid of. According to the NRA, "Los Angeles should improve its shameful record as one of the worst cities in the U.S.when it comes to enforcing existing federal gun laws against criminals."

As always, there are already laws on the books that would take care of people who illegally own guns, but unfortunately many of these laws are never enforced.

Of course our anti-gun President Obama sets the standard for ridiculous legislation and city ordinances such as this when he claims that gun violence is a greater threat than terrorism, and that, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws.”

And that statement from Obama is of course, a flat out lie. We have plenty of gun safety laws, they are just not enforced.
