Is the PRK just trying to compete against the PRNJ for the title of "Armpit of America"? If so, Davis is doing a great job.

...two multiburst trigger devices designed to fire multiple rounds with every trigger pull.

oh my!! :rolleyes:

On a brighter noteā€¦the case that will come out of California that will finally force the Supreme Court to up hold the second has been push up a couple years.

Where's our Francisco d'Anconia? ;)

"The individuals we're going after have a violent past or they been held for mental problems that make them a threat to themselves or others," said Randy Rossi, head of the Justice Department's firearms division.


How long will it be before someone who's being treated for minor depression will be "on the list"?

I would strongly suggest to PRK residents to never register arms, or get treated for depression.

I love that state, but hate the Kings and Dictators.

I now officially put California into the column marked "Self-Correcting Problems".

I wonder just how long the PRK will be able to pay the JBT's to kick down doors? :D

I'll put it this way if I was a business man doing business with that state it would be a "cash up front deal".

As things go on and more and more companies move out it will only get worse.....GRIN!

Maybe we will be lucky and Davis will lead a movement to succede from the union so he can print his own money to keep the state slovent. Good riddiance.

Big Brother is alive, well, and getting meaner in the PRK. I will be gone before G. Davis finishes his next 4 terrible years. Since Davis and his cronies are now shutting down large portions of the Ocean (from sportfishers) which I have fished since 1980, there is really nothing that will be left here! Handgun buyers will be jumping through more hoops starting next week. It never really ends in the PRK...

Strangely enough, people get the government they deserve through the voting process.

I'm really sad for the good people of California. So much beauty and promise along with such a pernicious infestation of weenies. :(

Didn't something like this start in Germany in the 1930s?

And I seem to recall that around 1945 there was a trial and a bunch of people were held accountable for their actions?

Including a lot of small players.

I agree with this statement. They will see only when it's far too late.

I don't think Cali has "slipped over the edge."
It's more like a runaway train that went off the tracks full speed with the conductor asleep at the controls.

I know the exact location of the southern end of the San Andreas Fault. Enough dynamite, it could become the Island of LA? Then Kurt Russell could make a sequel to "Escape from LA"!

I learned not to bunch up in the service and I have kept my safes widely dispersed with only the stuff I could afford to lose at my domecile. That way I can launch an insurrection later. :cool:

One of the main reasons I left the People's Republic of California last summer to return to the Unites States was that I lost my First, Second, and Fourth Amendment civil rights.

Standing Wolf,

The "Patriot Act" has proven your flight to be in vain--similar to fleeing from Berlin to Ludwigshaven in the late 1930s.

The difference between California and what we perceive to be "free America" is not a difference of laws, but merely of enforcement.

Thx Dennis. That definitely rained all over the Bash-California rant I was warming up.

I don't know, some parts of the country are still fairly close to what was intended. Give it another 6 or 10 years, though, and that'll probably have been cured.

California is the place people go after getting kicked out of all the other states. Then those people get all their friends to move here.

CALIFORNIA! - "It's a focus group for improving the suffering in Hell!"

I would change that to say "The majority of prople get the government..."

I certainly do not believe I deserve what CA is doing to me.


It definately sucks and there is so much pain and suffering in the pipe that it makes current conditions seem down right festive.

I am wanting to move out very badly, but my wife is torn about leaving her family. Cant say I blame her, but it will probably come down to move away or become jobless/homeless.

What toasts me is that a small geographical portion of the state voted in Gray the "Weenie" Davis. Then I look at it from a larger perspective. Gray Davis will never be elected to the Presidency which was his goal. CA may make him a Senator, who else would put people like Swinestein and BaBa Boxter in office?

Where's the barf icon when you need it?

"This is a program the NRA supported," Rossi said. "It's their mantra that we should enforce existing gun laws and that's what this program does. How they can say that without having an idea of who we're going after is really too much for me."That man does have a point. The NRA's appeasement tactics are starting to come full circle.

Pendragon,

Unless you can convince Northern CA to seceed from the South, I'd say you do deserve the nastiness due your way if you don't get out of Dodge.

You're not a stupid guy and you know what's coming, and it will be ugly. If a bird takes a dump in mid air and you see that it's gonna land on your head if you don't move, I reckon you are responsible to have a non-bird pooed head.

With that pointless hair-splitting out of the way, get down to Florida and away from CA. I wish I could offer you a warm weather NH to live in, but Florida will have to suffice for you. I moved up to NH from Long Island NY, and I'm soooo glad I did. Granted, the first few years were rough, but things eventually smooved out and I'm a happier person for it all. I went down to NY for a weekend a little while back and I realized how much NH has grown on me: carrying a gun really is comforting.

Good Luck on the move. It'll be rough but you will be better off for it.

How would Northern CA seceeding from Southern CA solve any problem? You then create TWO states with heavily populated liberal bases. Look at a voting map from our last election -- more Northern counties voted in Davis with a higher percentage than did Southern counties. San Francisco and surrounding counties were a big giant Davis blot.

If you want to eliminate the urban influence in (a new)CA, you have to split the state longways North to South, coastal counties from inland counties.

Hell I LIKE a good fight, I am in no hurry to leave Ca.(even though I have property in Or.) the trick is knowing when to hold em and when to fold em. I am still doing what I normally do, which allways was(at least common law ways) legal. If they turn into REAL nazis then I will methodically do what my daddy done. I think I'll be gone in another 20 years so its my childrens problem as they cannot inherit my assault rifles according to the gobermint. They didnt have to go towar yet and I taught them all the tricks VC learned me.:banghead:

Iggy Chin?! He's well known and disliked and it's reputed he would arrest his own mother if it would promote his career. I know one dealer he's raided illegally and while the dealer didn't sue, he's going to get Iggy to admit that he lied to the judge. The only purpose is to destroy his credibility for future court testimony.

Selective enforcement makes it all work. Heavy handed laws, but some not enforced. If you look wholesome enough, and don't lurk in back alleys, you will probably never know how easy it is to violate our laws. Makes it easier to pass more. We have roadside checkpoints for DUI, registration and insurance and seatbelt use. So far no checkpoints around ranges for proper transport. That would be interesting.
