    Or, rephrased, which makes him sound like a real moron, would be:

    "If you change the law, they will find a way to obey it".

    I love California-- and I feel for their citizens for being held to stupid laws-- I find www.calguns.net pretty interesting-- especialy for the wierd things gunowners have to do to just own a new AR or AK...

    God forbid that the general public can have a rifle that the sheriff's department "uses a variant of".

    In other shocking news, duck hunters along the Sacramento River Delta are using shotguns that are just like the ones that the sheriff's department has.

    Match shooters around California are using much better pistols than the cops carry.

    And the military issues AR-15s? When exactly did that start?

    This article contains flat-out lies.

    The Carbon 15 Top-Loader is the same, except that one "must first open the rifle, using the same mechanism one would use to clean it, before loading the California-maximum of 10 rounds into the magazine."

    This article actually openly advocates banning guns because they look like "evil" guns. That demonstrates that a major criticism of such bans is 100% accurate.

    Uh, so a sedan is the same as a pickup truck, except that one must first open the trunk to put the groceries in it, and the trunk is a good deal smaller than a truck bed.

    They mentioned the bullet button in the article

  11. No it's the idiocy of the legislators and their staffers who drafted it, ALONG WITH other idiots like YOU Mr. Paredes, who supported the law that was poorly drafted and nonsensical from the get go (not to mention does nothing to affect crime rates in either its present form or in Paredes' ideal of a "loophole-less" form.)

    The irony is that other semi autos such as the mini 14/30 are still available w/detachable mags and are completely legal. Those idiot kalifornistan politicians accomplished absolutely nothing. That's what they're known for. Now they're bankrupt. Because they're idiots.

    "For all the bluff and bluster on what the assault weapons ban has done, if you look at the hard cold facts, it's done nothing."

    Like most things, it's all about the money.

    If they address the bullet button next time, the manufacturers will just make it a rotary switch, like a rate of fire selector.

    i don't understand the logic of 10 day waiting period as well. if tx can do a background check in 30-40 minutes, why can't Cali do it ?

    Actually it's about two minutes. And the best part is it's free.

    And not just Texas, any state that uses the FBI NICS toll free phone number for the Brady check gets that check done in a couple of minutes. About one out of ten checks will take a little longer while I get bumped up to a NICS examiner (never longer than four minutes).

    Hands down the most efficient, polite and professional government employees I've ever dealt with are those that answer the phones at the NICS call center.

    "They're just complying with the law to circumvent it!"

    I actually heard that one in a city zoning meeting once when a guy wanted to open a video store, and a church didn't like that he'd complied with all the rules to be able to carry adult titles without having to move to a different zoning area.

    Sounds like you out there in the Peeples Repbulik of ********** should be horse whipped for doing the same thing.

    I happen to love the state of California. Many of the people there are good people. It has some of the most beautiful country any where. Lots of history and lots of diversity. That being said, I HATE it's government and it's laws. Last winter I turned down a job offer out there because I would have to get rid of half my guns... This is just a case of sensationalized media trying to legislate which has worked in the past out there. Sorry to THR members who live there.

    Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I was under the impression that the ten day waiting period was in place to prevent a person from getting into an argument, becoming very angry, rashly buying a gun, and shooting the person they were arguing with. Who knows. There's no understanding the laws of California.

    Yes and yes. I also find it humorous that I can carry a 6" folding knife in my front pocket, but I can't carry a 1" punch dagger in a neck sheath, but that's a whole other issue...
