Invoking Sandy Hook, California seeks 'Ammunition Purchase Permits' "for the sake of our children"

By Martin Hill



Invoking the Sandy Hook massacre, a California lawmaker has proposed the enactment of "Ammunition Purchase Permits" in the state "for the sake of our children", requiring all buyers of ammo to be issued a special annual permit before their purchase is approved.

SB-53 Ammunition: purchase permits.(2013-2014)
was introduced by CA State Senator Kevin De Leon, a Democrat who represents the 22nd district of Los Angeles. "For the sake of our children and the memory of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre, it's time for an honest and rationale debate on gun control and how to keep ammunition out of the hands of criminals", De Leon says.

De Leon's past gun legislation was signed into law by anti-gun governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (who had ironically been lauded by Republicans as the best choice) and praised by Chief William Bratton, an admitted freemason.
De Leon's press release immediately invokes the "Sandy Hook" massacre as justification for this proposal.
In his press conference video entitled Senator De Leon Announces Legislation to Keep Ammo out of the Wrong Hands,
De Leon states in part "for too long, too much ground has been ceded in this debate.... we must not capitulate any longer. I for one have had it." He claims that he has no interest in preventing law abiding citizens from buying ammunition, but rather to prevent the mentally ill and criminals from buying it. However, in the case of the Sandy Hook massacre, which is the pretext under which he has proposed this law, the bullets weren't even alleged to have been bought by a criminal or mental patient, but rather were purchased 100% legally by the mother of the assailant. He states that under the proposed law people will be required to "pass an extensive background check" before buying ammo, "much of which is principally desgined to kill people" and concludes with "the victims of Newtown deserve much better."

and typing in SB 53 in the top right corner search box.
The last official action according to the state's legislative website was on 12/21/12, which states that the bill "May be acted upon on or after January 20."

The principal coauthor of the bill is Senator Leland Yee Ph.D., a child psychologist from China, along with additional coauthors Senator Darrell Steinberg, a Jewish lawyer, and Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner. Skinner is described as a "environmental activist" who founded a coalition "to assist urban regions with environmental and global warming policy". Like De Leon, Skinner also invokes the Newtown shooting as well as the Aurora, Colorado shooting on her official website, stating "In California, it's harder to get some cold medicines than ammunition. Something has to change." Skinner had previously introduced legislation (AB2512) which would have "required large ammunition purchases to be reported to local law enforcement" as well as banned "high-capacity magazines".

Two of the coauthors, Yee and Steinberg both voted to support De Leon's insane proposal to
outlaw flat sheets in California hotels
in 2011, an idea which was mocked worldwide as an example of out-of-control nanny government. The bill, SB 432, "died" in Appropriations Committee "without further action" from the Assembly. SB 432, "an act to add Section 6714 to the Labor Code, relating to workplace safety" was peddled by De Leon who had complained "my mother was a housekeeper and worked herself to the bone".

SB 53 if passed would commence on June 1, 2014 and would require permits, associated fees, as well as "the brand, type, and amount of ammunition sold or otherwise
transferred" and the purchaser's signature, thumbprint, full residential address, and date of birth. All applying would be thoroughly checked by the "State Department of Mental Health" and the permit, if issued, will contain [ARTICLE CONTINUES HERE http://libertyfight.com/2012/Calif_seeks_ammo_purchase_permi...

It Must Not Be All That Urgent

...if it wouldn't even go into effect until June 1, 2014.

"If only one life is saved ..." If this legislation will truly save lives, it would make sense to enact it immediately, not well over a year down the road.

Obviously, this legislation is not about "the children," but about further eroding our rights and ensuring a monopoly of power within the military and police forces.

You say Cali wants permission to give ammo to the kids?

Now we're making progress.
Sorry, I am suffering from over-exposure to zombiespeak, and trying to laugh my way out of it.
Maybe they could wrap them in the condoms they pass out. "Birth control, and rapist control. Here you go sweetie, now have some milk and cookies."

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Barriers to entry?

From another thread, I read the concept of "barrier to entry" for the poor to exercise their rights.

In other words, if the price of these licenses (as well as the expense of finding time and transportation to the government office) is high enough, then fewer will exercise their rights. Rights. A right is not something you should require a "license" for.

Edit: they're including "mental health" in the law. There are numerous examples in history of despots using "mental health" to incarcerate non-violent, innocent citizens. And the definitions of "mental health" tend to be less-than-scientific (no offense to anyone in the field). So to see "mental health" in the text of the bill makes me think there's another agenda here.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
