    I bet the gun makers continue to sell to California law enforcement though.

    When you find out, let me know..
    Everyone is kinda freaking out about this but the real bottom is, it was
    and is really not about fighting crime so much as it is about making it really hard
    to and frustrating to purchase a firearm here in Ca that people will
    be discouraged from doing so.

    Az is next. Wait and see.

    10 years ago I said that Ca was working on backdoor ways to make firearms
    obsolete here. The people up in Sac couldn't come right out with a firearm
    ban, but they could sure bring bills forth that could geld the heck out of
    buying and owning em..Think this is bad, wait until the WH falls to the Dems
    in 08 and Schumer or so is the next Atty Gen.

    Sorry to off topic and I suppose I may have broke the new rules here, but
    wasn't intending to.

    Well revolvers should be banned since they don't leave evidence behind at all.

    That will be introduced next legislative session.......

    You Californians sleep safe tonight, your state is watching out for you.

    use your free weekend minutes

    Although Arnold has voiced his intent to sign the bill, I think we should all continue to call his office and vote. We should not go down without a fight. Moreover, we can make use of our weekend/night minutes offered by our cell companies.

    Although this only currently affects CA, it is only a matter of time before other states begin to consider it. Please call!!!

    LEAs are NOT exempt from this law.

    LEA= Law Enforcement Agency

    Federal LEAs might be exempt though

    Sure they are. LEAs don't have to buy weapons from the DOJ approved list so they are exempt by default.

    LEO's are not totally exempt from buying guns that are not on the list. They must have a letter from their sheriff or chief stating the weapon is for official usage and not for personal usage.


    The gun manufactures will not stop selling guns to California. They'll just keep selling the ones that are currently on the list. California is a huge market for firearms and firearm related items. It's the fifth (somewhere around there) economy in the world. Like it or not, they cannot ignore that type of a market. It could be the difference between turning a profit and putting their company into bankruptcy. They'll just adapt the way the auto industry had to when Cal passed it's stringent smog laws. They raised prices to cover the cost of additional smog equipment. The gun industry will simply do the same.

    Appears so - PC 12280
    Target practice is arguably improving needed job skills - "for law enforcement purposes"; if an officer can get the letter, s/he can buy the gun.

    Policy Change Regarding State Exemptions for Authorized Peace Officers

    Effective immediately, peace officers who have legislative authority to carry and use firearms may, without a letter signed by the head of their agency or the agency head's designee, purchase non-rostered handguns and/or large capacity magazines. The peace officer must present a valid peace officer identification card and the dealer must retain a copy of the identification card on file. (PC 12132 & 12133). A letter is still required from the head of the agency to exempt the peace officer from the ten day waiting period. (PC 12078).

    That figures.
