They’re Making Room in Jail for Gun Owners…

Sacramento, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- Have you seen the headlines in recent years?

California's prison overcrowding problem is a thing of the past.

AB 109 forced thousands of dangerous criminals who were serving time in state prisons down to county jails, resulting in jail overcrowding at the county level and the early release of many small-time criminals.

Then Proposition 47, passed in 2014 by the voters, allowed certain felons imprisoned for theft, check forgery and drug possession to be released from incarceration.

But this year, California Governor Jerry Brown is going a step further.

He is throwing his weight behind Proposition 57, which would give even more “non-violent” criminals an early release date.

FIGHT BACK BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE

At the same time, however, jails could be filling right back up with otherwise law-abiding individuals.

Governor Brown recently signed seven anti-gun bills that could land YOU in jail WITHOUT an option for early release.

Take, for instance, the new laws that make any firearm with a “bullet button” or other magazine locking device an assault weapon, SB 880 and AB 1135.

The punishment under current laws for possession of an “assault rifle” with “evil features” ranges from a $500 fine and destruction of your weapons to THREE years in prison.

STOP THESE LAWS NOW

Rather conveniently, these new gun crimes won’t be on the list of offenses for which people can be released early.

So… you could be going to prison if you are caught with a rifle that has a detachable magazine (which now includes a bullet button), a pistol grip, or an adjustable stock, but someone who is a convicted felon can be released early.

Makes sense, right?

Apparently it does to Governor Brown.

    @Tsgt B, Why wait until “they” are at your door. That is the least of all defenses, and least effort to prepare for. Guaranteed to result in a one to one exchange. With a six foot chain link fence, and lawn lights pointed at the street, you can shoot from the comfort of your home, at well lit targets. A self programed canine early warning system, will provide a responsive alert. Now, If you live way out in the toolies, as I do, you have even more options. Choke points, ambush site, escape routes and rally points, mutual assistance with… Read more »

    Sorry its larry davis. You are 100 percent right. If anyone read thr book the forsaken would know you are right. For those who never read the book its about people during the great depresson.

    @D.Murphy,first the bull dyke won’t occupy the White House. Second,more jails might be built in socialist states,tyrannical states,but not in free states. If the 2A is turned upside down free states will create their own version of it (most free states already have that in their state constitution) to protect law-abiding firearms owners. Many people think that federal law always trumps state law and that is totally false. Individual states already have different laws regarding firearms and that will continue. The main thing is to live in a free state !

    I’ve heard different counts on licensed, legally armed, CCW holders, all of which are in the millions. That’s not even counting the gun owners without a CCW permit & own a firearm just because they can…sio my question is, why are theses sons of bitches still in office? I know us 2A advocates, including the ones that don’t own but do support, outnumber the pussies that are against the 2A. There is no logical reason for any government officials to be able to get away with these ridiculous laws being imposed on “We, The People”! Durabo & Mark Are, have… Read more »

    Fleet Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto to Emperor Hirohito of Japan: “Your Excellency, we should NEVER invade the US mainland, because BEHIND EVERY BLADE OF GRASS, THERE IS AN AMERICAN WITH A RIFLE.”

    When I was commissioned in Pensacola, I swore to defend, preserve and protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC. Admiral Yamamoto’s statement still applies. It’s going to get bloody.

    I have been thinking about a way for legal gun owners to be heard before the election.

    Pick a date and a time and every legal gun owner fire a weapon in a safe and legal place. It may not be the shot that was heard around the world, but it would be heard across this great country. How about it NRA, can you get on board?

    There is one answer. The reason the 2nd amendment was put there in the first place. TO SHOOT TYRANTS. ANYONE enforcing this crap needs to be dealt with appropriately. Be sure to take down as many as possible because in the process you will be FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM and since they are going to keep coming at you, you will DIE most likely doing it. But what the heck…we are all going to die anyhow. Might just as well do it for a good reason.

    Recently it has been discovered that the atf is illegally retaining gun owner and firearm information. This information is required to be destroyed by the atf, but instead is being retained. This information can/will be used along with other information i.e, voting info, online activity to determine who the atf visits at 3am. For those of us who maintain that “they”‘ll never take my guns”, imagine this scenario. You are fast asleep at 3am and suddenly your dog goes ballistic, you hear a crash from the back door as well as the front door, you hastily grab your firearm and… Read more »

    English will soon become the second (or third) language in Californica, after the bastardized gibberish known as “Spanglish.” Who knows – the first choices will be Spanglish and Arabic…?

    Obama ga pardons to more criminals yesterday than any other president ( if he even deserves to hold that title ) has in a full 4yr term. This month there are 2 child sex offenders being released too live with in 4 miles of my home.
    The first is a 1 time offender who served 7 years of his sentence. The other is a 2 time offender who was released early once to go do it again. Now after less than two years he is being release too?? That is just Stupid….
