California's 4th District (Division 1) Court of Appeal just held that the Second Amendment does not apply to semi-automatic firearms like "AK" platform rifles. "We construe Heller as standing for the proposition that the right secured by the Second Amendment is 'not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose' (Heller, supra, 554 U.S. at p. 626), but is instead the right to possess and carry weapons typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes such as hunting or self-defense . . . We agree with James that the ban on AK series rifles does not impinge on rights protected by the Second Amendment because assault weapons 'are at least as dangerous and unusual as the short-barreled shotgun' (James, supra, 174 Cal.App.4th at p. 677), which Millerconcluded (with apparent approval from Heller) was outside the scope of the Second Amendment's guarantee. (James, at pp. 674-675.)" From thetruthaboutguns.com

I wish NY & CA would just stop trying to compete for the most insane state in the US. How the hell does heller not apply to AK style rifles, unless I am mistaken and people actually don't own them, just things that look and operate exactly like an ak... I mean really, as unusual as SBS? Or then I am greatly mistaken and people have SBS's all over the place.

That Is absurd logic... it's simply a semi- auto rifle. Country is dying...

Modern hunting rifles are too accurate.

No one needs to shoot a deer from 400 yards.

they will be targeted also..
and this is not a joke.. ive been saying this for a while myself. they will be next. "you dont need a .308 to kill a deer, nothing more than a 21 gauge slug from a good ole single shot shotgun. anything more than 100 yards is too dangerous with an ever growing population and woods full of hunters."

repeating rifles are on their list, you can bet your ass its coming!

By that logic the First Amendment only applied to movable type. I wonder how the phony ACLU-ers of the world would feel if everything they wrote on a computer wouldn't be covered by the Bill of Rights.
