Unloading civil rights

The woods are burning, and the Mensa members in Sacramento are occupied with really important problems like the size of the font on name tags and growing blueberries.

Oh, but that's not all. They are also obsessed with shredding the constitutional civil rights of all Californians - a cherished goal of Democrats who hate that pesky document.

On June 3, Assembly Bill 962 was passed by a 42-31 vote. AB 962 now heads to the state Senate where it will be heard by the Senate Public Safety Committee on Tuesday.

Sponsored by Assemblyman Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB 962 would make it a crime to privately transfer more than 50 rounds of ammunition per month, even between family and friends, unless you are registered as a "handgun ammunition vendor" in the Department of Justice's database. Ammunition retailers would have to be licensed (they already are) and store ammunition in such a manner that it would be inaccessible to purchasers.

The bill would also require purchasers to submit to fingerprinting, which would be submitted to the Department of Justice. Lastly, mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited.

Fingerprinting to exercise a civil right guaranteed by the Bill of Rights? How about fingerprinting clergymen? How about fingerprinting journalists? After all, isn't the pen mightier than the sword?

And for sure we need to fingerprint that rabble assembling for a redress of grievances. Those picket signs can be deadly weapons.

This fascist attempt to disarm Californians is clearly a violation of the Second Amendment, Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment, Ninth Amendment and the Fourteenth Amendment. Even the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, hardly a bastion of conservatism, recognized the often overlooked Fourteenth Amendment when they recently ruled against another ill-conceived firearm restriction.

Then there's the matter of the violation of the Constitutional bans on Bills of Attainder and ex post facto laws, not to mention violations of FOPA (Firearms Owners Protection Act) and the U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 241, Conspiracy Against Rights.

Leaders of the Democratic Party have always crowed about defending civil rights. But in Sacramento, with this bill, they feel no qualms about enacting laws in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens.

Why do they do this? Who will obey this law? Only Dad at the firing range who tells his daughter, "Sorry, honey. I can't give you any of my .22s. Go sit in the car."

The result of this bill is an unarmed citizenry, making the world safe for home invasions.

AB 962 is the full-employment act for smugglers and gangbangers. Criminals will not only ignore it, but will have a new cottage industry dealing ammunition just as they do dealing drugs. Disarming the peasants has long been a dream for Democrats.

What do the Democrats have in mind for the future of American citizens, that they need to have you disarmed?

If you think this assault on the rights of California citizens has anything to do with fighting crime, you'd believe Lois Lane has to open the pickle jar for Clark Kent.
