Judge Rules On New California Ammunition Law

A trial court judge in Fresno, a fairly conservative area, has ruled that certain portions of the new law, particularly the fingerprinting and registration requirements, are unconstitutional. It's a nice first step but a long way from recognizing the basic Second Amendment rights of Californians.

The Californian Rifle and Pistol Association brought the suit. They're a fine group and I'm certain they're not done yet. I was a member up until I decided to quit that sewer of a state. If they keep this up I'll be sending them a nice donation.

My thoughts and hopes are with all of you stuck in the former golden state though my advice is if you can get out do so forthwith. Free air just smells so much better.

We're second amendment folks here, too, and I would not live in California. Florida is pretty easy going. So far.

My hubby grew up in upstate New York where he and a friend would sling their .22 rifles over their shoulders and ride bikes to the rock quarry. They'd shoot some bottles and cans for a while and ride back. Could you even imagine what would happen if someone saw a teenager riding a bike with a rifle today?

You hit the nail on the head Portia. It's a sad commentary how far we've gotten from our roots.
