Could a bill in Congress make all Californians safer? Currently city by city, county by county and from Sacramento laws are passed and regulations put in place that limit your right to safe protection—while San Fran, L.A. and other cities protect MS-13 members and other criminals from foreign countries are allowed guns, drugs and to murder. I usually oppose the Feds setting policy for the States. In this case, California and local government are marginalizing our Federal Second amendment rights. Can we sue the confused Guv Brown or San Fran Mayor Lee, if we are shop and not able to defend ourselves due to State law? Why not?
“U.S. Rep. Chris Collins (pictured above) unveiled new federal legislation Monday called the “Second Amendment Guarantee Act,” or H.R. 3576. If passed into law, the new bill would prevent all state, county and city governments from enforcing local rifle and shotgun laws stricter than those at the federal level.
In California in particular, Collins’ bill would lift the state ban on many types of military-grade assault weapons and large-capacity gun magazines. It would also relax California’s strict licensing requirements for buyers and sellers of rifles and shotguns. (The bill would not, however, overturn any local rules on handguns.)”
Feel safe in California? Why?
