Anti-Gun Bill So Bad CA Won’t Accept It

Feels Good, Man.

Anti-gun bill fails in CA

SB918 had provisions for “…significantly expanding gun-free zones, requiring signage for private businesses where you “can” carry, doubling training requirements, and maintaining the ability to do in-person interviews, psychiatric evaluations, and allowing “time place, and manner” restrictions on permits” and was about as obvious an anti-gun finger to the Bruen ruling as California could muster.

What precisely it was that the California legislature, and their anti-gun proponents hoped to accomplish with this bill is still unclear. It plainly places restrictions on carry that have been outlined by the supreme court as unconstitutional as recently as 70 days ago, and was fated to die in court the moment it was conceived. Virtue signaling to voters is apparently the way to get re-elected nowadays, so it perhaps shouldn’t be surprising that this is going on, but we’re still impressed every time it’s this blatant.

Moms Demand Action were quick to take to twitter with their own hot take on the issue, with the decidedly Anonymous style hashtags #Novemberiscoming and #Expectus, seemingly suggesting that those who voted against this crusade to die gloriously in court after wasting taxpayer money pushing an obviously unconstitutional law were going to get voted out for their prudence and sensibility. It’s good for fundraising though, I suspect. Californians get to pay this anti-gun org to push legislators to pass a law that will then cost Californians even more money to defend in court, through appeals, and into its inevitable death. If we were more cynical, we might start our own grift to profit off of, and bankrupt people we hated too, but MDA and other anit-gun orgs seem to have that market cornered.

Anti-gun orgs and politicians will likely attempt to use this as proof that their liberty minded opposites are standing in the way of the will of the people, because who would oppose “common sense” gun laws, after all?
