It's supposed to, Henry. It's supposed to.

What happens when rats mate with humans: Henry Waxman.
"If someone is so fearful that, that they're going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, it makes me very nervous that these people have these weapons at all!" -Henry Waxman, D. California, 15 May 2001, "MSNBC Investigates" report on "The .50 Caliber Militia."
I recalled this quote after seeing this latest outrage from the People's Republik of Kalifornia:
"California lawmakers approve ban on open carry of rifles, shotguns."
The state Assembly on Wednesday voted final legislative approval to a ban on carrying unloaded rifles and shotguns openly in public in California cities, with supporters citing recent mass shootings in other states and concern by police officers.
The Assembly voted 43-30 to send the legislation to Gov. Jerry Brown, who has said he owns three firearms but has not yet taken a public position on the bill.
Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Canada Flintridge) introduced the measure as a follow-up to a bill signed last year by Brown that prohibited people from openly carrying unloaded handguns in public. Some have carried guns in public in a demonstration of a right to bear firearms.
The new measure makes it a misdemeanor, subject to jail time and fines, to openly carry unloaded long guns in incorporated cities. It was backed by law enforcement officials including Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck.
"The more guns we have on our streets, whether visible or not, the potential for tragedy increases exponentially," Beck said. "I am in full support of repealing the open carry laws."
I'm sorry, but if I had been born on the Left Coast I would have refugeed out of there a long time ago.

I always thought him rather strange-looking, but hadn't made the connection. Thanks for pointing it out.

The only trouble is that California is broke so suing them is a hiding to nothig.

Californication - self loving on a Podium!

Caution - all the makers will be leaving.

If unloaded guns are illegal, then it's time to load 'em up.
I'd be getting out of there all right, probably on a litter.

The Kalifornication border needs to be guarded and sealed. Anyone wanting to permanently leave should be carefully vetted before being allowed. Otherwise, turn 'em around & head 'em back into the cesspool.

All of you anti-California folks need to wake up and start helping us fight instead of just running away like cowards. Your own legislatures will try to copy whatever they see California's legislature get away with. Don't believe me? Check on the "assault weapons" bill in Nevada this session. You need to help us stop this cancer in California now, while it can be stopped. Or... when the SHTF are you planning to turn tail and run then, too?

@B Woodman... You are clueless. I would have voted out with my feet years ago as well - unfortunately I made a poor choice of husband and made babies with him.... So I remain here so they can have a Dad.

Believe me - when they hit 18 - i'm gone from this hell hole.

I'm not leaving the left coast - better to fight for the land of my ancestors.
Keep the left coast in your prayers - there are many good people who are fighting the good fight - may the others wake up.

i can't imagine another state that would elect this mutant to public office.

Has he ever had his DNA verified?

This is just the kind of poilitician the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment INTO the Constitution.

Ceding American territory to leftists is the last thing I thought I'd see here.

Yes, it's difficult. But freedom always is. We have the most successful statewide firearms lobby in the United States here, at

Run away from difficult times. Laugh at those of us fighting for our civil rights. But we will win, with or without you. If you're so proud of the 3%, how greater a share of honor for us when we win without even that?

Running away. What a shameful concept.
