If a Democratic Assemblyman in California has his way, residents in the state would not be legally allowed to buy more than one rifle or shotgun in a month’s time.
According to sacramento.cbslocal.com, the lawmaker wants to make sure that resident’s of his state cannot just purchase as many guns as they want.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Californians would be limited to buying a maximum of one rifle or shotgun each month under proposed legislation in the state Assembly.
It would be the same limit currently in place for handguns.
Democratic Assemblyman Miguel Santiago of Los Angeles says his AB1674 responds to a trend of Californians purchasing more long guns than handguns in the last decade. He says it makes no sense that anyone can buy as many rifles or shotguns as they want at any time.
Other lawmakers last week introduced two bills aimed at closing a legal loophole that allows firearms manufacturers to include “bullet buttons” that let rifle owners rapidly exchange empty ammunition magazines for full ones.
The bills follow a deadly terror attack involving assault rifles in San Bernardino last month.
Does any common-sense thinking person think the anti-gun movement will be satisfied with just one gun purchase a month? Eventually that number will change to one gun purchase a year and then the question will be asked, “why do you really need guns at all?”
