Source: All-Out Ban on Semi-Automatic Long Guns Coming to CA Legislature

12/20/2016 by AWR Hawkins

In a recent conversation with Breitbart News, Gun Owners of California’s (GOC) Sam Paredes told us to be ready for an all-out ban on semi-automatic long guns in California’s coming legislative session.

Paredes is the executive director of GOC, and he suggested the “assault weapons” ban and the “bullet button” ban have both been part of an incremental move toward banning all semi-automatic rifles, whether “assault” style or not.


We discussed the surge in long gun sales, which are currently taking CA by storm. The surge is the result of residents trying to beat the “bullet button” ban, which takes effect January 1, 2017. You cannot buy an AR-15 with a “bullet button” after that date, but you are allowed to keep one with such a button if purchased before the new year. (For those who many not know, a “bullet button” is a mechanism that people in the other 49 states would refer to as a magazine release. With one caveat: the button only works when depressed with the sharp point of a tool or the tip of a bullet, thus the phrase “bullet button.”)

After discussing long gun sales, we asked Paredes if there was anything on the legislative horizon we should know about. He said, “These laws are the tip of the iceberg here in California. We expect they are going to introduce legislation to totally ban semi-automatic long guns in California. They will do this because they know we will come up with a new way to beat their latest ban–the ‘bullet button’ ban–if given time.”

Parades added, “They had a bill for this last year that we were able to kill. We think they will bring it up again and they will also introduce legislation to put in place a one-gun-per-month of any kind purchase limit. This limit will apply whether it’s a handgun or a long gun, in order to try to slow down the sales of guns in California.”

It must be noted that California has universal background checks. This means the only kind of firearms sales allowed in the state are those that incorporate a background check. Consequently, this also means that all the new bans, rules, and regulations being discussed by Parades are bans, rules, and regulations that will be applied to residents who buy their guns via a background check; and this is a roundabout way of saying the bans, rules, and regulations will only apply to law-abiding citizens because they are the ones who follow the rules. Criminals, on the other hand, will buy their guns from personal and/or street connections and will face no limit on the number of guns they can buy per month nor on whether those guns are semi-automatics.

  1. The State of Commiefornia can pass all the gun laws they want. They will eventually reach the Supreme Court where they will be struck down. The Second Amendment is nonnegotiable and you can’t take away my God given right.

  2. I see a market for a device worn on one finger that has just the right size and shaped protrusion to push the bullet button.

    1. Yeah, those have been on the market for years. The “push something in the hole to drop the magazine” style of Bullet Button rifles have now been banned from new sales as of 1/1/2017 so it would be an especially bad time to bring another product like that to market.

    1. All of California DOES NOT live Hillary. Unfortunately the mass liberals on the coastal cities keep outnumbering us Republican citizens in the inland areas.

  3. If they try to begin enforcing these laws many people are going to be killed, and i dont mean civilians. There are numerous militias and many more gun owners in california. As well as all the people, organizations, veterans,. and militias that would come from out of state to assist. essentially, it would start a revolution and bring an overthrow of the CA government.

  4. A Pro Gun citizen(s) of California needs to sue the State for infringing upon the 2nd amendment. Use the same argument the LBGT’s used for same sex marriage which was the 14th. Sue California using same method and that it infringes upon their RIGHTS.
