BREAKING: CA Senate Votes to Ban All Semi-Automatic Rifles With Detachable Magazines After Connecticut upped the anti ante, The Golden State Senate is doing its level best to reclaim its title as Americas number one slave state. To that end, The California Senate on Wednesday approved a package of seven gun control bills, including background checks for people who buy ammunition, introduced in response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Well, the latimes.com would say that wouldnt they? Not to mention burying the big kahuna in the tenth paragraph. The Senate also approved a bill that would outlaw the sale, purchase and manufacture in California of semiautomatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines. SB 374 also would require those who own such weapons to register them with the state. Welcome back my friends to the nightmare that never ends. More details in the morning.
