America, meet California gun banning.

Now that there is a ruling that will challenge gun laws all over the country, the antis are going to start looking to California for enlightenment on how to ban guns without actually banning guns.

Expect a rise of things like "safety" requirements, qualifications, Approved FFLs, ammunition banning, ammunition limiting, feature banning, manufacturer banning, and on, and on, and on, and on.

California gun grabbers figured out a long time ago that they can't push for sweeping gun bans, because they lose. What they CAN do, is limit the availability of guns, increase their cost, and basically, tax and regulate them out of existence.

"Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?"
How are we to buy our firearms when the ATF keeps closing down FFLs for minor paperwork violations?

The antis in California are creative, and their creativity will be spreading to a neighborhood near you.

Well, they've banned "assault weapons" and .50BMG caliber rifles, so I'd say California has a pretty good grip on banning things.

I should have noted sweeping gun bans. Targeted bans based on firearm "types" look like they'll be on the way out after this ruling.

Not covered, are the "reasonable restrictions" of safety requirements, ammo limitations, and FFL hoops and taxes.
