    After all, we must compromise with the anti's or they'll ban all of our guns, right? So here's your chance to step forward and give something up for the team, just like you want the rest of us to give up OUR guns. So get on board and support this. Show your commitment to compromise.<br>

    California gun owners face further harrassment<br>
    Thomas Lifson<br>
    Bookworm calls our attention to a message from the NRA about an alarming bill being considered by California's left wing legislature, which is gerrymandered into permanent Democrat domination.<br>
    <br>
    Anti-gun hysteria has reached a fever pitch in the Golden State. The California Assembly is considering a bill (Assembly Bill 2062) this session that, if passed, will have dire consequences for California's law-abiding gun owners.<br>
    <br>
    AB2062 is scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, May 7 in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.Sponsored by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB2062 would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition. Applicants for a "permit-to-purchase" would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit.<br>
    <br>
    Under AB2062, it would be unlawful to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a "handgun ammunition vendor" in the Department of Justice's database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers. The bill would also require vendors to keep a record of the transaction including the ammunition buyer's name, driver's license, the quantity, caliber, type of ammunition purchased, and right thumbprint, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Vendors would be required to contact the purchase permit database to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale. All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.<br>
    <br>
    California gun owners already face daunting obstacles. I tried to buy a new gun a few years ago and discovered that all the gun dealers near Berkeley had been driven out of business by onerous restrictions. And the firearms safety course I had previously taken was no longer considered valid. Now, if this bill passes, it will be difficult to visit the firing range more than once a month. And here I thought the Constitution protected the right to bear arms...

    Compromise?? NO. NEVER. There is no "compromise with the anti's". None. Vote for the candidate of the more gun friendly political party?? YES. You would be hard pressed to find but a few people here, meaning maybe three people, that think it's right for "us to give up OUR guns". Consequently, a very high percentage will vote for the more gun friendly party.


    It's obvious you're also referring to McCain here, but I don't think your dog is going to hunt.

    I'm aiming this directly at the few here who feel it's perfectly alright to compromise the OTHER guy's guns away. They've told us we must give up some gun rights for the good of all gunowners. Let's see if they're willing to give up something that actually affects them.

    The names of the compromisers here? Haven't you been paying attention to the threads on handgun and semi-auto bans? You'll find them there, like ants crawling out of woodwork.<br>

    Fortunately, the majority of people here "get it".
