Law-abiding gun owners apparently are now endangered species in California. Legislators in the Golden State want to restrict the number of guns that citizens can buy — and expand law enforcement’s power to seize those firearms.
The proposal would limit long gun purchases to one per month. That bill and others like it have outraged supporters of the Second Amendment.
“California has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, yet we still have gun violence,” state assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Riverside County) said. “You will never ever stop all the violence, because there will always be people out there who want to do others harm. You cannot legislate that away.”
