Nor Cal shooter was apparently a mentally unstable pot grower out on bail for assault. 160K bail sounds like a felony, yeah?

California has a special taskforce to collect firearms from prohibited people. Why don't we focus on that rather than cosmetic assault weapons bans that are damn near inscrutable?


Why not both?


Because if we can't enforce the laws we have are we going to be able to enforce new laws? This guy was literally out on bail for shooting at and stabbing his neighbors. Why was he allowed to keep his guns?


California has a new law that prohibits what are effectively ergonomic features for the popular AR-15 platform. You can either leave the popular, ergonomic features on your rifle and register it as an "assault weapon" (and also use detachable magazines) OR, you can make your rifle "featureless" and also use detachable magazines. Some of those features such as the "flash hider" are poorly defined and subject to interpretation.

I don't know how we can quantify the lives saved by this enlightened legislation.

Will this go to the 9th circuit next? I look forward to whatever tortured justification they find to uphold the law.

Interesting news on Vegas shooter:

Apparently he had two email addresses that sent each other messages in conversation form about buying weapons, the wife's fingerprints are on the magazines, and she deleted her facebook account hours before his name was released. Yet, law enforcement maintains he acted alone.

Elsewhere this has been reported as the shooter emailing himself. Is it confirmed that he owned the domain?
