AND THEN THERE WERE 3: California Senate Democrats introduce third “assault weapon” gun ban bill of 2016
SACRAMENTO – Yesterday, two California Senators joined forces to introduce the third gun control bill of 2016 that would increase the scope of the state’s already expansive ban on so-called “assault weapons.”
Senate Bill 880, authored by Senators Isadore Hall, III (D – Compton) and Steve Glazer (D – Orinda) would change the definition of “assault weapon” to include a semi-automatic, centerfire rifle, or a semi-automatic pistol, that does not have a “fixed magazine” but has any one of the listed “evil features.”
The language of SB 880 would define “fixed magazine” as one that “cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action.”
Should SB 880 pass, potentially millions of locked-magazine or “Bullet Button”-equipped firearms would need to be registered with the Department of Justice.
DOJ is headed by Attorney General Kamala Harris, a known anti-gun extremist who recently bragged in a press release announcing a gun control bill she sponsored that “over the last two years” her Department of Justice “doubled the average number of guns seized annually.”
“Senate Bill 880 is another bill representative of the gun control frenzy we’re seeing from big-city Democrats these days,” explained Brandon Combs, president of Firearms Policy Coalition. “They’re more interested in playing politics than passing laws that protect Californian’s constitutional rights.”
“Legislators like Hall and Glazer absolutely want to take your guns one bill at a time,” concluded Combs. “Firearms Policy Coalition and our members will fight and defeat SB 880 like many other gun ban bills that came before it.”
