Poll: Overwhelming Majority Oppose California Gun Confiscation
May 2, 2013
A recent Los Angeles Times poll reveals that most Americans would oppose expanding California’s gun confiscation program for the rest of the nation.
On Wednesday, the governor of California, Jerry Brown, signed a law that will confiscate guns from residents who legally purchased firearms but were later convicted of a crime or determined to have a serious mental illness.
The law allocates $24 million in “surplus funds” to hire special agents to address a backlog of 40,000 weapons owned by people the state has decided should be denied their right to own a firearm under the Second Amendment.
