Liberals in the California Legislature are proposing a host of new gun laws for our state. Never mind that we have some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation. If I only had a bullet for every time we hear, "if it saves only one life." Liberals can't let a little thing like the Second Amendment get in the way of how the world should be!
These new gun grabber proposals include prohibitions on loaning a gun, selling a gun to someone you know and detachable magazines. In a clever bit of wordsmithing, the button that is pushed on a gun to release the magazine is being dubbed a "bullet button." That is scary.
I come from a family of farmers. It is customary in my culture for a father to give his son his first rifle. Perhaps gun ownership is seen as nearly as nefarious as going to church by the San Francisco ultra-liberal left, but it is a right of passage for many of us.
This rifle has a "bullet button" and is very similar to a rifle used in the Vietnam War and is still used in combat today. I clearly know my son and didn't complete any official paperwork between us. Someone out there is probably calling SWAT to come get me quicker than a Vichy Frenchman could hand over a Jew to a Nazi.
It is would be ridiculous if it were not so serious. This American has one last request before being hauled off to a "re-educaton camp." Please leave us alone. It really is that simple. Allow me a plastic bag, my diet soda and a little bit of freedom.
For those wondering what kind of highly dangerous weapon this father gave his son; it was a Ruger 10/22 which has a magazine release and is similar in appearance to the Ruger Mini 14, just smaller.
Now it is off to the store to pick up some 22-calibre ammunition before I have to buy insurance, get another background check and fill out the necessary government tracking paperwork
