California Cracks Down On AR-15 Owners

quote [ 6 New Gun Control Laws Enacted In California, As Gov. Brown Signs Bills ]

I didn't want any of these laws but I figure a lot of people here would like to celebrate. I for one can't wait to see how this will play out.

The AR-15 isn't an assault rifle. It's just a regular semiautomatic rifle based on an assault rifle platform. And it's not possible to convert it without an M16/M4 lower receiver, which already will get you time in a federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison for possession without the tax stamp.

I'm all in favor of restricting gun ownership to responsible owners, with required proof of responsibility (with the caveat, the law should be "shall issue" if the responsibility requirements are met). But banning a certain gun just because it looks like an assault rifle, that's just stupid.

(Proof of responsibility should be like cars: license, registration, and insurance.)
