California state legislators are considering more legislation that would limit the freedom of gun owners. One of these bills takes aim at the ammunition people can purchase and use at shooting ranges.
According to the NRA’s Institute of Legislative Action, AB 3071 would prohibit the use of ammunition that has not been certified by the state as being lead-free. Sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin Mullin, a Democrat, the bill “prohibits shooting ranges from selling or giving away ammunition that has not been certified as lead free and requires signage that lead ammunition is prohibited for use at the facilities.”
Another bill, known as AB 3058, restricts the way gun owners can carry their weapons inside their vehicles. It expands restrictions on firearms kept inside of unattended vehicles. Should the bill pass, gun owners would be required to keep firearms locked down in a trunk or a toolbox affixed to the vehicle.
Needless to say, this is another one of the California state legislature’s attempts to restrict the Second Amendment as much as possible. Politicians in the state view gun ownership as a privilege, and not as an inherent right provided and protected by the U.S. Constitution. Normally, we would implore lawmakers in the state to reconsider the bill, but the way things are, it’s only a matter of time before it passes.
We can only hope that gun owners and the organizations that protect their constitutional rights are able to challenge these insane laws in court.
