California Police Crack Down on Prohibited Persons Possessing Firearms & Ammunition

California Police Crack Down on Prohibited Persons Possessing Firearms & Ammunition

San Diego, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- NRA and CRPA are contacted hundreds of times each year by individuals who were unaware that they were subject to a firearm possession restriction and are seeking to help restore their right to possess a firearm.

Typically, they discover the restriction only when they attempt to purchase a firearm and are denied after a background check is performed. Often these individuals have unwittingly possessed firearms safely for years for hunting and/or family-protection.

On June 16th, 2011, California Attorney General Kamala Harris announced the results of a statewide sweep of persons prohibited from owning and possessing firearms and ammunition who were found in possession of those items. (press release at: http://oag.ca.gov/news/press_release?id=2521 “fact sheet” at http://ag.ca.gov/cms_attachments/press/pdfs/n2521_apps_fact_sheet.pdf). Restrictions on individuals from possessing firearms under California and federal law include restrictions on the possession of ammunition.

The Attorney General claims in her press release that, “[s]eizing guns from felons, gang members and other prohibited persons is the kind of smart, proactive law enforcement that makes a difference in the everyday lives of Californians…We are all safer thanks to the sworn officers who carried out this sweep and I am committed to strengthening this program.”

This media event highlights the ongoing efforts by the California Department of Justice to track down and prosecute individuals illegally in possession of firearms or ammunition using its Armed and Prohibited Person System (APPS).

We expect this to be the beginning of a more focused effort by California law enforcement agencies to track down and prosecute individuals illegally in possession of firearms or ammunition.

This will be particularly likely if the additional funding being sought is made available.

While APPS has been used to accomplish good things, unfortunately harmless individuals are often swept up in the effort. Many of these individuals are not even aware that they are restricted from possessing firearms and that they may have been illegally possessing firearms, albeit safely and without incident, for years.

As is most often the case, ignorance of the law is no excuse. A person can be charged with a felony if they fall within a prohibited class and are found in possession of firearms, ammunition, or certain firearm parts. (Cal. Penal Code §§ 12021, 12021.1, and 12316). Lawyers for NRA and CRPAF have now published several articles that may assist those individuals in determining their eligibility status, in avoiding prosecution and other legal difficulties, and possible in having their rights restored. These materials are posted here.

When is it unlawful for law Enforcments or Common defense By the League View to make a entry bearing Arms unConstitutional how you ask The fire Arms they use is paid for by you the Tax payer its more or less an Act of War. And is in part Why All Taxes was to be Voluntary!

      Even if the fire Arm an Officer is using is or was paid for By his own means We the people have the right to reject such Armed entry of A personal Sovereign

      Gun Control is Between the people buying an selling it…end of Story! The Mayor ASking Congress to pass Laws to over inforce regulation of commerce in this view is not really constitutional. Congress shall not pass laws..shall not be infringed.. Lets look at Gibbons v. Ogden 9 Wheaton 1 (1824) was the matter of maintaining the value of money the Waits and Measures in the time of when Gold was used more then paper. Which then so become the part of the Starting of the Civil. When each State wanted to maintain its own value of money the Waits and Measures!

      The Mayor Kruzan is Asking for things that the supreme court has time and again rejected, I have one for him if he wants to Boy cott Arizona’s self defense ie the Letter he signed May 17th 2010 in time of war and seeks to dis arm we the people.

      Ok then lets tell the 24/7 The Armed and unArmed United States Secret Service that protects our nation’s leaders, visiting world leaders, national special security events, and the integrity of the nation’s currency Lets tell them Go home Stop Watching over his family etc…Tell him buy a vest get a Gun and Protect them your self…..

      Mayor Mark Kruzan for get’s the Only reason Law Enforcment can carry Arms when Not on the Clock is Because of the Views of Bill’s like HR 218 http://www.njlawman.com/Feature%20Pieces/HR%20218.htm this bill upholds equal right of the 2nd Amendment,

      For the Mayor to Ask for such unconstitutional views to be pushed he’s views are in Direct contempt and Conflection with Indiana’s Constitution

      http://www.law.indiana.edu/uslawdocs…t-1.html#sec-1

      Section 23. Equal privileges and immunities

      Section 23. The General Assembly shall not grant to any citizen, or class of citizens, privileges or immunities, which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens.

      Section 32. Arms–Right to bear

      Section 32. The people shall have a right to bear arms, for the defense of themselves and the State.

      for the Mayor to Ask Congress to pass laws to restrain the right of self defense as the Elected leadership of Common defense of part of the League is Asking for congress to out right push Direct Congressional Contempt or constitutional monarchy in direct conflection with his own oaths of office and a Act of treason in a time of war as he along with Obama backs open Borders as they back sending Aid To our foes—- we are at war with through our Allies that those same foes are at our own borders.

      Section 28. Treason defined

      Section 28. Treason against the State shall consist only in levying war against it, and in giving aid and comfort to its en

      emies.

      The Indiana General Assembly approved 229 new laws this year, many of which will become effective July 1, 2011.

      Guns:

      A person can now carry a handgun without a license if they are on their own property or in their own vehicle. A person can also carry a handgun without a license on another person’s private property or in another person’s vehicle with the owner’s consent. Any person may regulate handgun possession on their own property. However, an employer cannot prohibit employees from keeping a firearm or ammunition in a locked vehicle’s trunk or glove compartment.

      Local government is prohibited from regulating any matter pertaining to firearms, ammunition or accessories. Any local ordinance enacted on or before June 30, 2011, will be voided. Exceptions include buildings with metal detection devices at each public entrance to the building if the building has at least one law enforcement officer at each public entrance. The local unit, however, still may not prohibit or restrict the possession of the handgun in the building if the person carrying has been issued a valid license to carry!

      this is a Good start—-Yet I feel the only needed Valid license to carry is the

      Amendment 2A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed

      From reading this its Good to see bills that reflects the Standards of Framers of the United States Constitution and the rights from it as such and Fire Arms. Its good to see laws that reflect the 9th Amendment views beued by the Elected Common defense and or leadership of the League

      United States Constitution

      Amendment 3No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

      Amendment 2A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed

      Amendment 9The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people

      Section 23. Equal privileges and immunities

      Section 23. The General Assembly shall not grant to any citizen, or class of citizens, privileges or immunities, which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens.

      Section 32. Arms–Right to bear

      Section 32. The people shall have a right to bear arms, for the defense of themselves and the State

      Section 34. Quartering of soldiers

      Section 34. No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner; nor, in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law

      Reminder you have the right to refuse law enforcement from coming into your home Armed…Even with A search warrant…Study your common law History…know your rights or lose them…Key words “without the consent”,

      As for government Places….it is we the people a Tax paid for place, and the rights to Arms should not be so rejected as for Indiana

      Section 23. Equal privileges and immunities, reminder the only reason law enforcement can carry is because of laws As like HR 218 that backs the Amendment 2…and the views of Congress shall pass no law…anything less would be direct Constitutional contempt by the Elected and or Appointed Leadership of the Common defense of the League
