Second Amendment backers arm up with ink and paper to battle California’s ‘Gunmageddon’

Barry Bahrami went from incredulous to angry last month when California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a batch of firearms control laws known collectively as “Gunmageddon.”

Then, the San Diego-based CEO became determined to fight back against the laws, which take aim at so-called assault weapons, enforce ammunition background checks, mostly take effect Jan. 1 and outlaw the possession of high-capacity magazines and ban the “bullet buttons” that enable their swift replacement.

“These laws are completely insane to almost anyone with a real knowledge of firearms, and I did not think Gov. Brown would sign them,” Bahrami told FoxNews.com. “Many California gun owners are still unaware they will be criminals soon.”

The all-Democratic team of bill sponsors proudly christened the new legislation with its apocalyptic moniker, but Bahrami vowed that voters will have the final word. He and other Second Amendment stalwarts have organized 1,600 volunteers across the Golden State with the goal of garnering 365,880 signatures — although ideally they would like to get far more than that to ensure validity before submitting — for each of seven referendum petitions to get on the Nov. 8 ballot.

If they succeed, and they must have the signatures by the end of next month, they will put gun rights in the center of the presidential election. And if they win at the ballot box, they will overturn the nation’s newest and most far-reaching gun control laws and negate a somewhat redundant set of gun control measures already set for a referendum even though the laws they provide for are largely in effect.

    California the most progressive antiamerican state in the union is at it again. We are being thrown into a position that every gun owner in the state will be at the pinicle point where we won’t be able to defend ourselves and they are pissing on our constitutional rights. They are bullies and having a one party state given now that they have set in play democratic candidates shutting out republican politicians by the ballot box of the top primary vote winners can be moved forward. This state sucks and is getting worse by leadership that ignores the people and spends money like drunken sailors off a Carrier.

    “These laws are completely insane …. I did not think Gov. Brown would sign them,” I’ve always thought Gov. Brown was insane.

    The public should vote on these measures. If the voters uphold the laws then gun rights activists can take their chances with the court system. Realistically it will be difficult to eliminate most of these items from California. Bullets and guns don’t breathe. As long as people keep their firearms out of sight it is going to be hard for government bureaucrats to know what a person has.
