California has a new gun law coming in 2014 that will require registration of long guns (rifles & shotguns) and it has gun owners involved in rush purchases before January 1, 2014. Previously when someone would purchase a long gun, dealers would destroy personal information on long gun owners after a background check had been completed. Now they’ll register those purchases with the state.
The registry goes into effect on Jan. 1, and would require long gun owners to register their weapons like handgun owners already do. It would track the make, model and serial number of the gun, as well as the person who owns it. Sounds eerily like 1930’s Germany. Make no mistake the fine people that brought the citizens of California this law have a total gun ban as the end result.
