My local newspaper reported today on page A4 that California Governor, Arnold Schwartzenegger, signed into law a bill which makes it illegal to manufacture, sell, distribute, or import a .50 caliber BMG, a single shot weapon widely used by law enforcement officers and the military, as well as civilian sport shooters.
Why? What was the basis for the law?
Gun advocates say it is a military firearm that could easily fall into the hands of a terrorist.
Yep, a California law will stop that. What terrorist would risk being prsecuted in an OJ court for a misdemeanor? :grumble:
I hope to see the NRA challenge this law. Its lead attorney, Stephen Halbrook, argued in articles that the 2nd Amendment was intended to provide citizens with military style small arms.
