Acall to Arms!
TheState of California has created “an Emergency” that requires theDepartment of Justice to file “Emergency Regulations” regardingthe new and “improved” Firearm Safety Certificate Program, andspecifically the “Safe Handling Demonstrations” now required tocomplete the purchase of any firearm in the State of California.
Theactual result, in spite of what they say publicly; will be to HALTALL FIREARM SALES IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR A 60-90 DAY PERIODOF TIME.
ThisWILL result in a large number of Firearm Dealers in the State ofCalifornia going out of business.
Ibelieve that this is in fact the intent on the part of the State ofCalifornia, and the Department of Justice.
Theyposted the initial “Notice” on Feb. 17th, 2015. We asFirearm Dealers have until Feb. 22, 2015 to submit any “Comments”to BOTH the Department of Justice AND the Office of AdministrativeLaw. If one or the other does not get a copy, then the comments areNOT VALID!
