Gun grabbers are eroding the Second Amendment throughout the country and people are applauding the loss of freedom they will sustain as a result.

Los Angeles just made it illegal in the city to own or be in possession of a firearm magazine holding more than 10 rounds of ammo.

It will be a misdemeanor and it was voted in unanimously.

Only on-duty police officers, military and firearms dealers are exempted along with people who obtained high-capacity guns holding 10-rounds fifteen years ago. Off-duty police are not exempt.

All gun grabbers have to do is go to liberal areas, send in their teams to complain and the politicians comply.

They think this will prevent mass shootings. According to the city council member who wrote the bill, Paul Krekorian, people don’t need a large drum magazine or automatic weapon to defend themselves, which might be true if criminals didn’t have them. Sportsmen, collectors and competitive shooters will have more and more difficulty as these ordinances spread and make it illegal for people to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

Krekorian dared the NRA to sue which they’ve already indicated they will do.

Since the last key Supreme Court case was only one vote from ending the Second Amendment, Krekorian could be in the winner’s chair.

Opponents were represented by Chad Cheung, director of the Calguns Shooting Sports Association. “I think it’s more of a people problem rather than a gun problem,” said Cheung, who uses large-capacity gun magazines in various shooting contests.

“Nobody knows more about firearm safety than I do,” he added, underscoring the notion that with the proper training, people could possess such magazines safely.

Anna M. Barvir, an attorney whose firm represents the National Rifle Association and the California Rifle & Pistol Association, said the law violates the Constitution and State law.

“Magazines over 10 rounds are in common use for self-defense,” she said. “They are constitutionally protected.”

San Francisco and Sunnyvale, California, have similar ordinances which have so far withstood legal challenge. Last year, a federal judge upheld a Colorado law banning magazines that hold more than 15 rounds, Reuters reported.

is there any doubt that in the end the leftists and liberals want our guns?
