    Bullet Button Ban

    The latest attack on the 2nd amendment comes from California (surprise!)
    SACRAMENTO (CBS 5) – The debate over California’s strict gun control laws is about to heat up in Sacramento and it’s all because of what we reported a few weeks ago.“When I saw the news I was absolutely horrified,” said State Senator Leland Yee, referring to a CBS5 report about the so-called bullet button.It’s a modification that enables the magazine of a semi-automatic rifle to be removed quickly, with the tip of a bullet. Removable magazines in combination with other features like a pistol grip and telescoping stock are banned under California law. But the bullet button is legal because it doesn’t work with your finger, so the magazine is considered “fixed.”
    CBS 5 Report Inspires New Legislation To Ban ‘Bullet Button’ « CBS San Francisco

    In California, the land of free thinking and open discussion, Lee said
    It is extremely important that individuals in the state of California do not own assault weapons. I mean that is just so crystal clear, there is no debate, no discussion,

    I don't know. Yeah, the relevant statistics (like before and after effects for a region) always support the 2nd amendment but a lot of people really seem believe it will prevent crime. It seems pretty simple to me so I don't know what many of them are thinking.

    they arent doing anything to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, they can buy whatever they want on the streets. I just prevents honest lawbiding folks from purchasing an AR15

    Who or what can't you "assault" with a remington 700? This is just classic fear mongering. Oh noez, he can like change his magazine quickly.California has always been a hotbed of dumbass gun laws.

    So which is it? You don't know or you support gun control or do you support gun ownership?

    They aren't concerned with violent crime. They are only concerned with disarming the public in general so we can't stand up to the government or protect ourselves from them.

    You can assault someone with your feces. What are they going to do then? Ban crapping?

    Gun regulation is stupid. You can kill someone with a tooth brush.

    At the same time, the typical NRA radical would shit all over the first amendment if they could. Pick your poison I guess.

    I'm very pro second amendment. I meant, in response to heckler's post, that I don't know what the anti's are thinking. It's really kind of hard to believe that rational people would support these gun control measures. For instance, the 'high capacity' magazine ban... There's no evidence that limiting the mag to 10 rounds will save anybody but that's assuming the ban actually prevented people from getting high cap mags. There's already so many in existence and it's not like it takes a mechanical engineer to figure out how to extend an existing one; magazines are basically metal tubes with a spring in it... just attach more tube.

    And there's the rub, we're not dealing with rational people.
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???

    They think criminals get their guns from breaking into peoples homes and stealing them, but what is really happening is they break into peoples homes steal valuables, assault the homeowner who is afraid of guns and never wanted one in their house because they have been programmed to think they are only for killing or that they will get in trouble for having one. Then the thief sells the stuff they stole and buys drugs from gang bangers who then go and buy more illegal guns that they get from a dealer who will sell to anyone on the black market. What they don't realize is that if criminals knew that there was a larger heavily armed to the teeth public out there they'd think twice about breaking into someones home, less drug dealers would have the money to get guns and that dealer who was selling on the black market would have more legitimate customers and not have to sell to thugs.....
