Surprised no one has posted this yet... BREAKING: CA Court of Appeals: 2A Doesn't Apply to AK Platform Rifles | The Truth About Guns

With a copy of the decision here: CA Court of Appeal Holds Second Amendment Doesn't Protect Semi-Autos | Calguns FoundationCalguns Foundation

I tried checking Legal Insurrection as they usually have great commentary but it isn't linked there yet. Also not seeing it on any major news sites (no surprise there). Where does it get appealed to after this? Obviously it would be years before it is heard (if at all) at the Supreme Court.

M1, M16, Thompson, All where good enough to fight for freedom ?, To say Semi Auto's are not protected under the 2nd, is like stating the Phone, Cell phone, PC internet are not protected under the Constitution only hand written papers are protected.

Sounds more or less like a justification for banning AWs... stupid either way.

I say we break off CA and sink it...

Who gives a chit about Heller? "Shall not be infringed" pretty much says it all and clarifies that there are no ways for government or courts/judges to sidestep and pull this sort of crap.
We the people can not be subjected to your personal vendetta with our rights.

Anybody See What's Going On? They Are Not Going To Stop Until Every Last Semi Is On The Scrap Pile. This Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg. The Gun Lobby Really Needs To Unify And Do It Fast. Yes,Unify. For Example,Ny Gov Race,Cuomo Can Be Defeated If Half The People With Guns In Ny Vote! That's All We Need,BuT Easier Said Than Done.

**** heller, **** miller, **** Sullivan. The 2A is VERY ****ING EXPLICIT.


We should be allowed to own full auto, RPG's (equivalent to when colonists brought THEIR PRIVATELY OWNED cannons to the war), Anti aircraft missiles (once again equivalent to cannons shooting at British ships). End of story. Period.

I don't understand the comparison between AK platform rifles and short barrel shotguns?
No understanding is possible, because there is no similarity to begin with. The argument that an AK-styled weapon is "at least as dangerous and unusual as the short-barreled shotgun" is completely specious.

A short-barreled shotgun is only more "dangerous" than any other shotgun because it can be more easily concealed. An AK-styled weapon has no such conceal-ability. Also, yes, short-barreled shotguns are "unusual", but that is at least in part - perhaps largely - because their possession is limited by law. AK-styled weapons, on the other hand, are ubiquitous in America; they are legally and responsibly owned by millions of citizens.

Clearly, AK-styled weapons are neither uniquely dangerous nor unusual, and this ruling is not going to withstand any challenges.

I agree with everybody uniting and getting in line but the sheer brilliance of the constitution and our REPUBLIC means that regardless of who is elected anywhere for any office, our inalienable rights cannot be trampled, changed, muted or redefined.
The elected truly don't have the power to change these INHERENT rights. They can say whatever they like but our rights are not granted or guaranteed by them.
We have these rights with or without them.

Assault Weapons
what is an assault weapon? is that a hammer in the hand of someone committing an assault? i do not know what this term means... sorta like "gun violence" thats when a gun acts on its own to hurt someone right? ;)

MSR is a modern sporting rifle... we need to ingrain that in our heads otherwise we are letting the leftist media win.

and while i agree with the sentiments of strongisland, in this day an age unfortunately we have an attack by the majority rule right now against our unalienable rights that were enumerated in our Bill of Rights. the Bill of Rights didnt give us these rights, it merely listed them to be specifically protected against tyranny. and unfortunately the country has seen fit to allow this right to be challenged in the past and the the scotus has made some rulings and heller/mcdonald are certainly in our favor at large. its the only way right now to fight this nonsense. its not like the population is ready to take up arms against tyranny yet, right? ;) (just kidding of course, i wouldnt want to be accused of inciting a riot or anything.)
