    Default California governor signs bill to speed up gun seizures

    California governor signs bill to speed up gun seizures | Fox News

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Jerry Brown announced Wednesday that he has signed legislation expanding the ability of state agents to seize firearms from nearly 20,000 Californians who are not allowed to have them.

    They collectively own more than 39,000 handguns and 1,670 assault weapons but are prohibited from owning firearms because they have been convicted of crimes, ruled mentally unstable or are subject to domestic violence restraining orders.

    The bill authorizes $24 million for the state Department of Justice's Armed and Prohibited Persons program. The money will go to hire more agents to confiscate the weapons and reduce the backlog over the next three years.

    The program, which is unique to California, cross-checks five databases to find people who bought weapons they are no longer legally allowed to own.

    SB140 by Senator Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, authorizes $24 million to hire more agents to confiscate the weapons and reduce the backlog over the next three years.

    The bill is the first of numerous firearms bills introduced by lawmakers in response to recent mass shootings in Connecticut and Colorado. The Democratic governor signed the bill without comment.

    "California is leading the nation in a common-sense effort to protect public safety," Attorney General Kamala Harris, who oversees the state Department of Justice, said in a statement.

    U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, a Democrat from St. Helena, introduced HR848 earlier this year to create a U.S. Department of Justice grant program for states that want to develop similar programs.

    Imagine yourself getting into a dispute (non-violent) with a neighbor. Imagine that that person is a single Mother, with 2 kids, who hates men, and decides that you are just like her ex-husband; who traded her in for a newer, less psychotic model....

    Nutball single mother gets her gander up, and dials 911; "I have been threatened!" Police report taken, no arrest, no trial.

    Nutball goes and talks to an "Advocate", who files for an ERO (Emergency Restraining Order) alleging that she feels threatened, and that she fears for her life and the life of her children.

    Judge ALWAYS grants the ERO, and then schedules a hearing in some number of weeks. BANG! You are now no longer able to possess firearms. You must turn ALL of them, and all Ammunition, and any other "Common Weapon" into the local constabulary within the time specified on the ERO.

    OR, you become a Felon.

    Think this is some Orwellian pipe dream? Well, come to the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia. See for yourself.

    I have said this many times here at Gunco:

    We need your help. We need your money to elect real Republicans. We need you screaming at your politicians to ensure that they do not feel like they can follow the example of Kalifornia.

    The Revolution to destroy America started here in Kalifornia in the 1970's. It was planned, financed, and implemented by the Soviets. It started with the schools, and has spread out like a cancer from there.

    Do I sound like a lunatic? If I do, then you are not paying enough attention. It will take another 10-20 years, but the Revolution is coming to a neighborhood near you.

    Good Day Comrades.
