    I was always under the impression that even if the AWB sunsets, the PRK (PR-LA in specific terms) would not be affected because there are a lot of laws besides that one, which ban so called Assault weapons?

    Yeah. ********** has its own ban, which is not affected by the federal AWB.

    AFAIK, the CA law does everything the Federal law does and more.

    It was crafted as a "just in case" measure - just in case the rest of the country gets the AWs, CA is "safe".

    I plan to immigrate to America.

    CA: home of the original AWB!

    Your impression is correct, the PRK has its own state-level "assault weapon" ban which, as far as I know, covers a super-set of the guns outlawed by the 1994 federal AWB. You should spend some time over at http://caag.state.ca.us/firearms/index.html to learn why you probably should pick a different state to return to.

    Thank you, Patrick Purdy and 10 million whining ninnies, for making this State a much nicer place to live. Thank you too, Msrs. Roberti, Roos, Perata, Shelley, and Scott. :mad:

    Pen..

    I noticed you didn't mention Hernandez, Feinswine, Boxer.. They need to get their honorable mention too :cuss:

    I thought the PRNJ was the home of the ORIGINAL AWB? No?

    Or did the PRK usurp that honor?

    Oh wait.. if we are talking about backward gun law places.. I must give my good friends in DC an honorable mention..

    Any place where the Mayor's on crack (I mean that literally) there's not much more to say.. When the sewer rats and cockroaches are sick of fighting with the politicians for food... :barf: :banghead:

    I can't help but find it humorous that California will be stuck with the AWB even if the rest of us are not.

    After all, Californians are the smartest people in the US (followed closely however by New Yorkers).

    expect the Bradites to push for more state level bans next fall

    They had a trial balloon in MD last fall that died in committee:

    HB844 _ 3/13/03 1pm Firearms - Assault Weapons - Ban House: Judiciary
    Making it a misdemeanor to transport an assault weapon into the State or to possess, sell, offer to sell, transfer, purchase, or receive an assault weapon; making it a misdemeanor to use an assault weapon or a specified magazine in the commission of a felony or crime of violence; providing specified penalties; etc.
    The bill defines assault weapons banned to include (Partial List): AK-47 IN ALL FORMS; AR 100 TYPE SEMI-AUTO; AR 180 TYPE SEMI-AUTO; BUSHMASTER SEMI-AUTO RIFLE; COLT AR-15, CAR-15, AND ALL IMITATIONS EXCEPT COLT AR-15 SPORTER H-BAR RIFLE; SKS WITH DETACHABLE MAGAZINE; SPRINGFIELD ARMORY BM-59, SAR-48, G3, SAR-3, M-21 SNIPER RIFLE, M1A, EXCLUDING THE M1 GARAND; A SEMIAUTOMATIC, CENTERFIRE RIFLE THAT HAS A FIXED MAGAZINE WITH A CAPACITY OF MORE THAN 10 ROUNDS; A SEMIAUTOMATIC PISTOL WITH A FIXED MAGAZINE OF MORE THAN 10 ROUNDS.
    Additionally, the bill defines as an assault weapon any semi-automatic pistol that can accept a detachable magazine and a threaded barrel that can accept a flash hider or silencer. That definition includes most semi-automatic pistols.
    The bill allows grandfathering of assault weapons already owned provided they are registered before 7/31/03.

    I reckon we'll get to be even more envious of places like Texas and Arkansas.

    And the pressure to emigrate will just get that much greater.

    Skunk,

    How long will it be til the rest of the country has laws like California? I don't know, but I don't see it happening anytime soon in the deep south.

    No, twoblink, the Great State of California owns that particular crown. Our distinguished legislators Roberti and Roos crafted the original AWB in 1989, in response to the infamous "Stockton Schoolyard Shooting" where Patrick Purdy shot a bunch of kids. (As in, the children!!). We then strengthened it in 1999, for when you need that extra hit of statism. We're progressive!

    From the mouths of the gun-ban experts:

    http://www.bradycampaign.org/facts/gunlaws/awb.asp

    As an aside, that web page is full of some real gems; it's a worthwhile read for anyone seeking a powerful laxative.

    "the NRA did not appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court"

    I wonder what areas have been top contributors to the the legal/political wing of the association? They sure are picky when it comes to defending gun issues.

    From what I've been reading it'd seem that the NRA has a habbit of just throwing there hands in the air & giving up.....

    That would be a major PITA to load I'd think.
