    It's only a matter of time in CA before all drugs are legal, but possession of lead will carry the penalties possession of hard drugs used to carry.

    Truly the land of fruits and nuts.

    It really makes me sad that the citizenry of California actually votes this way and choose to live in oppressive ignorant feer.

    If you ask me, Trump is planning his border wall for the wrong location.

    -Now the victorious party has to do the things that they promised to do - to the people that elected them.

    Thus does popularity fade and die... .

    Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation1:

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    I think this fits what is going on.

    Wouldn't silver be more appropriate? Isn't that what you need to put down blood sucking creatures from the dark side?

    Many of us "speak out" and many of us vote as well.
    Sometimes that isn't enough to win ...

    I have a buddy of mine who lives out there and he recently mentioned the changes and how that will effect, and has already affected, his shooting habits. He ain't happy but he's pretty much stuck with it.

    You don't "cast" copper projectiles. They are machined.

    Some folks are just plain stupid. some are ignorant. Some are easily led by others. A larger and larger segment is only interested in what they can get without working for it.

    They walk among us. And they vote!:(

    In reference to dealers having to log ammo sales:
    Define "handgun ammo". Ah there's the rub. California AB962 (2009) was supposed to apply to handgun ammo, but coming up with a legal definition proved impossible. SO the good people of CA [/tongue in cheek] passed Prop 63 which basically changed "handgun ammo" to "all ammo". All ammo must be recorded and a background check run. Exemptions for sharing ammo with family, and with friends at a range, and on buying ammo to consume at ranges.

    Not the best place to reference but it was the first one I found:

    Does this also effect reloading and the necessary components.?

    No. Reloading components are unregulated.

    Got out in 2013, moved to Idaho. It was a good decision.

    I will be shocked as well. What makes you think this is even remotely possible?

    This is one more example of "The Big Sort," in which Americans are clustering with like-minded neighbors.

    https://www.economist.com/united-states/2008/06/19/the-big-sort

    In fact, this explains why California is so liberal (and antigun). Conservative people (and pro-gun people) won't go to live there, given a choice, and those who are already there will leave.

    This also explains why there are no conservatives -- and few pro-gun people -- remaining in the Democratic party.

    If this polarization keeps up, we are headed to civil war, or at least to a breakup of the country.

    There are probably enough old car/truck batteries out there that are NOT being "recycled" to make a fair number of moldable bullets.

    Car batteries are a very poor choice when it comes to finding lead. With new batteries you're more likely to harm yourself than anything else.

    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?138362-Why-Car-Batteries-Are-Dangerous

    Nor are wheel weights a viable option in California since lead wheel weights have been banned for over a decade.

    Thanks for the correction. I had heard that about the wheel weights some time back and they are trying the same thing around here, all because of the lead.

    If you want economic liberty, you don't live in Venezuela.
    If you want religious liberty, you don't live in Saudi Arabia.
    If you want any liberty at all, you don't live in North Korea.

    If you want the right to defend yourself, you don't live in California.

    Don't mistake a lack of concern for a lack of ability.

    The Kate Steinle case conclusively proved that the people who run California simply don't CARE.
