California Infringes Further on 2nd Amendment, Requires Background Checks for Ammo Purchases

The Democratic socialists in California are eviscerating gun freedom.

A new law is officially in effect in California that will require background checks on all ammunition purchases, as the state with the strictest gun laws in the country further infringes upon the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.

“At the end of the day, it is a perverse fact: Guns don’t kill people. Unless a gun is used as a blunt instrument, a gun is not particularly dangerous,” gun-grabbing Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom said on Monday. “A gun requires a dangerous component and that’s ammunition.”

“The reality is, if we’re only monitoring gun sales, we’re only looking at part of the problem and part of the equation,” Newsom’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra said.

Gun owners have reportedly been stocking up on ammo in anticipation for the new infringement to come into effect. Sales have spiked a stunning 300 percent in recent weeks, according to a gun shop owner.

“In the last two weeks I’ve been up about 300 percent,” as people are “bulking up because of these stupid new laws,” a Sacramento shopkeeper who sells ammo said.

“Most of the people who are coming in are avoiding it,” said John Parkin, owner of Burlingame’s Coyote Point Armory. “It’s another right that the state of California is trying to take away from us.”

“Locking a door doesn’t stop a thief from breaking in, so putting another restriction on ammunition it’s not going to stop a crazy person or person with mental illness from getting ammunition or a firearm,” an LA-area gun store owner said.

The gun-grabbers are celebrating this measure as another step toward their end goal of disarming all Americans and making them sitting ducks without any way to resist violent criminals and heavy-handed government bureaucrats.

“They were able to get it through online sales delivered right to their very front door, like a pizza, with no background check or kind sort of regulation whatsoever,” said Robyn Thomas of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

“Ammunition is the oxygen that fuels the violence we see in our communities every single day and our law enforcement needs to know who’s buying it,” Senate Pro Tem Kevin De Leon said. “Our law enforcement needs to know who’s selling it.”

Voters approved the measure in 2016, and it was ordered to come into effect by July 1. It will require a prospective ammo buyer’s information to be cross referenced with whatever is on file with the Department of Justice’s Automated Firearms System. If the information is not found, the individual will be burdened with a fee and a waiting period of up to ten days to make the buy.

The California Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Rifle Association have filed lawsuits challenging provisions of the new burdensome law, which are still pending in court.

Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Luther is running for the Texas Senate.

Published

on

Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.

Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.

Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:

It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.

“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”

Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.

Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.

“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”

Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.

Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.

With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed.  America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
