California bill restricting out-of-state gun transfers passes state Assembly (VIDEO)

A measure that will place restrictions on firearms coming into the state and, according to gun-rights groups, will criminalize common firearm transactions, passed the California state Assembly Wednesday.

The legislation would make changes that go beyond existing federal laws to the state’s gun statutes involving firearm transfers on guns received from outside of California. It passed the Assembly by a 49-25 vote on May 28.

“Every day guns are being purchased across state lines in Nevada and Arizona, trafficked into California, and sold to criminals on our streets,” said Assembly member Luis A. Alejo (D-Salinas), the bill’s sponsor, in a statement.

Alejo continued, saying, “I am confident that this bill will cut down the number of guns on the streets of our most vulnerable cities by giving state law enforcement the tools to enforce what in many cases is now federal law.”

Alejo’s bill, AB 1609, the “Enforcement of Interstate Gun Trafficking Act,” is a six-page clarification to several of the state’s existing laws in regards to firearms transfers. Beginning in 2015, it would require all guns coming into the state to first be transferred to a Federal Firearms License holder who would perform required background checks and observe state-mandated waiting periods before the gun could then be transferred.

    If ANYBODY has been paying attention… ALL of these mass shooters have eilther been Democrats or their parents were Democrats.

    The Aurora shooter — a registered Democrat.
    The Arapahoe High School shooter — voiced Socialist Democrat views.
    The Columbine shooter’s parents — were registered Democrats.
    The Virgina Tech shooter —- was a registered Democrat.
    The Sandy Hook shooter’s mother — was a registered Democrat.
    The Boston Bombers — campaigned for Obama.
    The Maryland mall shooter was a begrudged liberal who had personal issues affecting his happiness.
    The UC Santa Barbara shooter was the son of a Hollywood Democrat and listened to the “Young Turks”

    ALL of the Mass shootings were carried out by Deranged Liberals….NOT 1 single Conservative in the bunch

    We need to Stop focusing on Gun Control and START focusing on keeping Guns out of the hands of Deranged Liberals…..

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what will happen when California or New York turns into a gun-free zone. It’s already begun but will get much, much worse.
