    California Quietly Eliminating Second Amendment Rights

    2 New Court Decisions Are Quietly Eliminating Californians’ Second Amendment Rights

    Golden State gun owners may soon be an endangered species, and no one is talking about why.

    Two new federal court decisions highlight a harsh new reality: California has effectively repealed the Second Amendment inside its borders. In the first case, decided yesterday, a district judge ruled against the National Rifle Association's state affiliate in a challenge to onerous new California rules targeting popular semi-automatic rifles. That 2016 law, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D), is called the Assault Weapons Control Act.

    The second unsuccessful Second Amendment case, also brought by the NRA's state affiliate, sought to protect Californians' rights to carry firearms for self-defense. A federal judge in Los Angeles tossed it on Monday, saying the California legislature "reasonably saw a link between restrictions" on carrying firearms and public safety.

    In theory, after the Supreme Court's Heller decision in 2008, the Second Amendment was supposed to mean something—it was supposed to protect a core fundamental right as important as the freedom to speak or to worship. Just as the First Amendment was the uniform law of the land across the nation, the theory went, the Second Amendment would be as well.

    I guess I really need to reread my Constitution. I totally missed the right to safety.

    i see it in a fundamentally different way...

    ... once they do away with citizens rights, and secede, it will make it that much EASIER for us to re-take it, and proclaim it
    one of the United States..

    This is correct. They are proud to proclaim to be the model for gun control - confiscation for the U.S.

    You'll have to wait in line. Army's 11th ACR, 4th Inf Div and the USMC's 1st MEF would be the first to act. Even after the retaking, we couldn't get rid of them. Since the US signed the Geneva Convention, the soldiers aren't supposed to kill unarmed civilian types.

    Nah, process them into little green crackers and use that to feed the Illegals as we ship them back.
