Nearly two-thirds of the new laws ease restrictions and expand the rights of gun owners.

Yawn

Taking my assault weapon to the range tomorrow, in CA no less LMAO. Might even buy another one while I'm there LOLZ

What a bunch of nothing laws. HA! This one
California
Requires owners of long guns to earn safety certificates like those required of handgun owners.

Is it safe to look down the barrel of a loaded gun? Y or N? What a bunch of drunk hamsters that wrote that one. I LAFF. You have to be stoned not to pass that test.

It makes me smile every time I take my weapon to the range or hunting knowing that someone is cowering under their bed because of it for no reason at all. Oh nos, a gun. Hahahaha.

I doubt even someone stoned will be refused that if they have a med card. I see younger guys lighting up outside the range all the time. That's why I can't stand indoor ranges.

Stupid laws don't stop criminals as they don't obey ANY law.

I am a gun owner and I don't want mentally disturbed to own guns. Why is it that so many paranoid gun owners just don't seem to care?

What is so bad about background checks or safety training to own a firearm.

Stop this nonsense about only criminals will have guns. Criminals will always have guns because they source them from law abiding gun owners either by stealing or buying them.

The real paranoid people are not the anti gun people they are gun owners.

Anti gun people are not going to gun shops and buying up all the ammo so gun owners can't get any.
It's the paranoid owners who are hoarding.

BTW I think every homeowner in every state should have a gun for home protection except for the nut jobs.

Keep guns out of the hands of nut jobs and the anti gunners will go away.

While it sounds sensible for restrictions on nut jobs owning guns how do you prevent mass shootings by a dedicated nut job?,at what point do you say some one has the potential to commit a mass shooting therefore we should lock him up for life? rules and regulations are kinda useless in a country with so many guns and so many seemingly normal people using them to settle their problems.Unless draconian legislation is enacted whereby all guns are made illegal which has absolutely no chance of ever happening, about all any one can do is watch or read about people dying everyday from gun related incidents..

I'm completely with you, in principle.

The problem is that when creating a law about it, "nut job" must be strictly defined. Who do you bar from buying a firearm? What is the criteria for denial of your 2A rights? How do you ensure that you're not stripping the rights of someone who doesn't deserve it?

These are critical questions that must be answered to your satisfaction prior to your supporting any such law. Once a law like this is passed, it will never be repealed, which is why I've always been against any such proposed law. There's no scientific test that can predict whether or not someone's going to snap. The only mechanism we have right now is the opinion of a doctor, and doctors are by and large against gun ownership to begin with.

Do you want to put your 2nd Amendment rights into the hands of someone that doesn't believe you should have them? I don't. I won't.

Actually they are on both sides of the issue. There are people that absolutely freak at the sight of a gun, or even someone mentioning a gun. Children expelled from school for 'pistol fingers', or biting a Pop Tart in the shape of a gun, or cops in uniform told not to bring their child into the school because other kids will see his gun.

The insanity runs deeper on the anti side of the issue. And where is most of it found, in our schools where this insanity is being taught to our children.
