California’s Stupid New Gun Ban

.50 caliberThis is so fucking retarded, California just banned .50 caliber rifles because a terrorist “might” use one.

The reasoning is based on the fact that in Waco, Texas, the Branch Davidians had been found in possession of a .50 caliber rifle (incidentally, they were shot at first by the BATF, then by machine guns mounted in helicopters). Now, I see this as just another chip at the Constitution by a creeping police state, but some will want to say that this is meant to protect us from terrorism.

Well, now a terrorist would only have to drive to a neighboring state, buy the gun and drive back in order to shoot at tanks if they so pleased since California is the only state to ban them. Color me non-plussed by the fact that the only people this idiotic law affects is law-abiding citizens, which must have terrorists in fits of giggles at California’s stupidity.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Oh… I can’t wait to be a completely unarmed populace with our military spread thin throughout different unsuccessful campaigns.

    Woohoo that is my idea of heaven!

  2. Would that other states follow California’s lead. There are far too many guns in the world.

  3. Yeah, I forget how many times in the past terrorists have used these weapons to strike fear in the heart of the infidels. California better hurry and ban Pizza before terrorists realize that indigestion can be a powerful ally….

  4. Great at last now citizens will be unarmed allowing armed criminals who follow no laws to rob people safely.
