As a Californian, and an American I am appalled by your attempt to keep LAW ABIDING CITIZENS from obtaining what you call “assault weapons” and/or high capacity magazines. It sickens me that someone who is supposed to protect the rights of the people of California is working so hard to destroy our inalienable right to bear arms. Have you read the Second Amendment? “A 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.” The Second Amendment was not put in place for hunting or sport, the Second Amendment is “necessary to the security of a free State”. In a more modern syntax: the Second Amendment is there so when we the people deem our government no longer fit to represent us we can remove them from office, by force if necessary. What you are trying to do is allow the government to become more powerful than its people and that is not okay.
All of that aside, do you honestly believe that disarming the public by way of a weapons ban will stop criminals from getting access to these weapons? Does your security personel use what you classify as an “assault rifle” to protect you and your family?
As a citizen of California I DEMAND that you cease and desist all attempts to tread upon Second Amendment.
