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.

I agree that the pistol grip ban is idiotic. Forward pistol grips, ok, there's an argument to be made there that the original popularization was in the Thompson submachine gun, and that pistol grips forward of the action are a feature of assault weapons. But that M14 is just fine.

High capacity magazines are features of assault weapons. You can argue whether it should be more than 10, but firearms with more than 10 rounds are hunting the most dangerous game.

Banning weapons based on manufacturer and make was essentially ordered by the California Supreme Court in Harrott v. County of Kings, 25 P.3d 649 (Cal. 2001). Basically, the court reasoned that both the cops and people who have firearms should just have to consult a list to find out whether a particular make and model is prohibited.
