PETITION.ORG: Ban California

Ban California because on a map, it looks like a high capacity magazine


Looking at the state of California, it clearly represents a high capacity magazine. California enforces a 10 round magazine limit and California clearly violates this law. The only solution to this issue is to ban California. I feel that my fellow progressive Democrats in the State Legislature will agree on this issue.

This is the most utterly ridiculous thing Murdoc’s ever heard in his entire life.


California DOES look like a high-capacity magazine
California DOES look like a high-capacity magazine, doesn’t it?

Holy shit. There might actually be something to this.

NSSF Opposition Letter to Proposed Lead Ammunition Ban (AB 711)

Regarding the proposed lead ban in California:

First, absent sound science of an adverse impact to wildlife populations, there is no justifiable basis to restrict use traditional ammo. If sound science exists then wildlife managers (not legislators) should lead the identification of possible remedial measures available that adequately address the issue and implement the measure that is least costly to the sportsmen.


5 Yr. Lead Ammo Ban Fails To Reduce Levels of Lead In Condors

Despite a 99% compliance rate by hunters, there has been no reduction in condor lead posioning during the 5 years that the lead ammunition ban has been in place within the condor corridor.

California-Compliant Colts

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Colt Defense LLC, one of the world’s leading designers, developers, and manufacturers of rifles and carbines, is adding two additional models to its current list of five rifles that are compliant with California’s bullet button laws. The new carbines available to shooters in California are the CR6720CA and CR6724CA.

“We are pleased to be expanding the list of products we offer to our customers in California,” said David Ridley, Vice President, Colt Defense LLC, “Offering seven rifles with the state’s required bullet button gives California sportsmen the opportunity to chose from a wider variety of Colt-quality guns to find one that suits them best.”

The CR6720CA and CR6724CA are the most accurate of the rifles in Colt’s Match Target® line and are ideal carbines for target shooting, as well hunting and varmint shooting. Both rifles feature a stainless steel, free-floating barrel that allows the barrel to flex as it should, without being constricted during firing. The 6720CA weighs nine pounds, measures 39 inches long and features a 20-inch barrel. The 6724CA weighs 9.3 pounds, measures 43 inches long and features a 24-inch barrel. The additional length of the barrels allow for increased firing distance.

Both rifles feature a 1-9” RH twist for lighter grain ammunition, a black A2 style buttstock, Colt flash suppressor, tubular handguard and pistol grip. These direct gas system, locking bolt rifles each come in a matte black finish with a nine round magazine and ship with a scope mount for additional accessories. They are chambered for 5.56×45 NATO (.223 Remington).

The first five California compliant guns released by Colt are the LE6920CA, three of Colt’s Magpul®-accessorized 6920s (the LE6920CMP-B, LE6920CMP-FDE and the LE6920CMP-O) and the LE6940CA.

It’s good to see more and more options for our oppressed countrymen in California. Keep praying for the day that they are freed.

We must keep BR55-M45 and M90A assault weapons off the street!

Some third-grader writing about the definition of assault weapons in California uses images from Rambo and (I shit you not) the Halo video game.

Assault weapons are dangerous. Just look:

Halo Weapons
Halo Weapons used for examples of 'assault weapons'

I mean, why would anyone even NEED an MA4B-APTR? Are they going to go duck hunting with an M8 SMG? Thomas Jefferson certainly didn’t have the BR55-SS in mind when he wrote the Constitution.


What an idiot. I guess this is what passes for journalism in SF Weekly.

A Man with a Gray Ponytail

LA chief apologizes for dragnet in shooting hoax

The Jan. 19 incident had the hallmarks of a brazen attack on law enforcement, when Los Angeles Unified School District police Officer Jeff Stenroos claimed he had been shot by a man with a gray ponytail who had been breaking into cars.

Hundreds of officers were dispatched to scour cars and yards as part of a massive dragnet.

Except that no one shot him. They still aren’t saying exactly what happened, and the shell casing found near the scene doesn’t match the officer’s gun. Whatever went down, it’s a crock.

‘Hide and hope for the best’ is NOT a defensive plan

Plan B - Filing Cabinet

Over at GunPoliticsNY: Plan B sucks

The NYPD suggests running away from an attacker armed with a gun. That’s excellent advice if the situation allows it. But if escape is not possible, they suggest hiding behind a filing cabinet:

Hiding behind a file cabinet is probably the best “Plan B”

Any port in a storm, and all that, but if hiding behind a filing cabinet and hoping the paperwork is packed tightly enough inside to provide cover in addition to a little concealment, you are basically in a “let’s keep our fingers crossed'” place.
They admit that there may be no other option than to fight the attacker:

Consider using pens, staples, chair legs, anything you can get your hands on, as an improvised weapon

Again, do whatever you have to and use whatever you have at hand. If you’re not in New York, you may actually be prepared to skip the “improvised weapon” step and go directly to the “weapon” step.


Four out of five dentists recommend actual weapons for their patients who attack armed gunmen. The other one is a gun grabber and probably has his own hired security.

The suggestions for improvised weapons reminds Murdoc of California’s suggestions for fighting an attacking mountain lion:

A hiker in Southern California used a rock to fend off a mountain lion that was attacking his son. Others have fought back successfully with sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools and their bare hands.

Murdoc’s response at the time:

Rocks, sticks, jackets. As I said in January, that’s not fighting back. That’s desperation. Carry a gun, friend.

Unfair to use a gun on a mountain lion? Exactly.

If you find it surprising that New York and California both suggest “defending” yourself with such silly weapons, raise your hand. Thank God that there is so much room in between those two places.

For the benefit of our New York readers, Murdoc has helpfully added some links to defensive gear on via the images to the right. Also consider this.
