I don’t know if you’ve noticed lately, but since the passing of the “California Safe Handgun” act, or whatever the hell it’s called (it requires all new semi automatic handguns sold in California needs to have technology called micro-stamping included that distinctly mark the cartridge used) Anyway, several manufacturers have already said they are going to discontinue selling handguns to California because of this, Ruger and Smith and Wesson. Well, what you may not know is that there are hundreds of handguns ready to expire off the list this year, the image above is only a few. Check out the California Approved Handgun Roster
Just search for all firearms, and you’ll notice pretty quickly that 90% of them are expiring at some point this year. What does this mean? It means that unless these manufactures adopt California’s ridiculous requirements for handguns, they will begin falling off the list, and you won’t be able to purchase a new one in California. Which means eventually, with no new guns coming into California, you won’t be able to buy one, because no one will be selling theirs in a private party transaction since they can’t get anything else.
Write to your congressmen and tell them to overturn this ridiculous law requiring this micro-stamping. The list seems to be up to date, I didn’t see Lealand Yee on it.
The California State Senate late Friday morning voted to suspend Yee, and fellow Democrat Senators Ron Calderon and Rod Wright, with pay, “until all criminal proceedings currently pending against them have been dismissed,” according to the Sacramento Bee’s Capitol Alert. The vote was 28-1.
Why is it that people in Government get “Suspended with pay” when being investigated for extreme negligence, corruption or something? How about they get suspended without pay, and will receive backpay should they be exonerated? That way at least we aren’t paying criminals while they are going through their trial.

So, this is kinda ridiculous. Why do “gun people” get so butt hurt about stuff like this? Everyone is pissed at Cheaper Than Dirt when they jacked up all their prices after the Sandy Hook shooting then everyone freaked out and purchased EVERYTHING gun related, cleaning out stocks and reserves everywhere (something from which we still have not completely recovered).
What is it with all the over reacting and outrage? You don’t like that CTD jacked up all their prices? Fine, then don’t shop there? Afraid that all guns and ammo will be banned? Not very likely to happen, calm down.
For crying out loud, let a business do what it thinks it needs to do to stick around. Gun people can be some of the most sensitive, easily offended, and skittish group of people I’ve ever seen. Sometimes even more than bleeding heart, utopian loving liberals.

2 Illegal immigrant brothers were charged and indicted yesterday on charges of manufacturing illegal firearms and components in California including fully automatic firearms and suppressors. 3 of those things are illegal, guess which thing they didn’t get caught for.

Just when you thought you might be able to get a CCW anywhere in California. Not to say I didn’t see this coming.
This comes just one week after San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore said he would not seek en banc review and would start issuing permits based on self-defense once the appeals court decision was finalized.
Since Sheriff Gore did not ask for review, the only way for a hearing by a larger panel of justices in the 9th Circuit is if one asks to go en banc.
“Obviously, what this tells us is the folks that advocate civilian disarmament are upset about the opinion and want to throw everything they can at it to bottle up the 9th Circuit or get it overturned,” said Mr. Michel, whose firm, Michel and Associates, represented the plaintiffs in the Peruta case up to the appeals court level.
