Many have read the stories of California’s new bans on guns and ammo that include the prohibition on online ammunition sales and the requirement of identification when purchasing ammo in a store; however, some other shocking new laws have remained under the radar for those outside of the increasingly liberal state.
First, and back to gun laws, there is run on guns in California at the moment as “assault” weapons will be officially banned as the state voted on legislation to close the “bullet button” loophole (basically it’s a magazine release that requires a “tool” to use).
Since Californians have a five-day waiting period, the day after Christmas will be the last day they can submit their background check and purchase what will be a banned firearm.
For those current owners of soon-to-be-banned AR’s AK’s and other “evil” rifles, they will be required to register their guns with state law enforcement authorities.
Even more draconian is the new law on “high capacity” magazines. On July 1st, 2017, anyone in possession of a magazine that holds 11 or more rounds will face fines of $100 to $500.
No grandfather clause exists for gun owners and Californians will be required to dispose of banned magazines in one of four ways: ship it out of state, sell to a “licensed firearms dealer”, destroy, or surrender your magazines to law enforcement.
Anyone looking for a deal on magazines would be smart to check California posts on Armslist.com (basically the Craigslist for guns).
Moving on to the bizarre new regulations hitting the Republic of California in 2017, one that specifically stood out was the decriminalization of prostitution that will take place statewide . . . but it’s not what you think.
Only prostitutes under the age of 18 will be safe from arrest and conviction. Whaaat?
Yes, state legislators in their brilliance decided that child prostitution should no longer be a crime as underage prostitutes should be seen as victims and not criminals. They must have missed the movie Taxi Driver.
For those not concerned with the legalization of child prostitution, they may be a bit worried about the new distracted driving laws that limit drives to ONE touch or tap on a mounted phone.
While that may ease distracted driving accidents, the effort is undone with a new laws that requires children under the age of two to be strapped into a REAR FACING child seat.
This demented new law which shows that the majority of California law makers who are likely childless due to homosexuality or preference, love to cram kids in back seats with their legs crunched Indian-style in notorious LA traffic.
Those same children will grow up to attend public schools that have been sanitized of offensive mascots thanks to yet another 2017 law that bans the use of “Redskin” as a mascot name for schools.
As Californians enjoy their new laws, they should realize that this is just the start of the madness as another new law gives “low-level” felons the right to vote.
Way to go guys!
