  •  Oh great. A confiscation provision. (1+ / 0-)

    So-long supermajority. It was nice while it lasted.

    I really think this is misguided. Even if it fails, the mere fact that California voted on a bill that included a confiscation provision will be seized upon by the NRA and it's ilk. We would quickly see nationwide adds along the lines of: "See! We told you they were coming for your guns and now we have proof!".

    I'm all for banning the sale of new assault weapons but trying to forcibly take away the existing ones is counterproductive IMO. Instead of futile attempts to take away these guns we need to focus on changing liability laws to force gun owners to keep their damn guns locked up.
