    What the hell is a bullet button? And since when does any elected moron have knowledge of anything other than how to rip off the CITIZENS they are supposed to be representing and protecting? My father-in-law calls them “Over-educated Morons” I think he got a bullseye.

    This from http://www.scopedin.com, “The Bullet Button is just a few small parts that alter the behavior of the magazine release. Using a bullet or some other pointy tool to depress this inner button is what releases the magazine. The outer “button” is actually solid and will not depress as it does in a conventional AR-15.” This would be a response to the BofA bank hold up in North Hollywood among other incidents, the problem is criminals would look to convert the weapon back. The two criminals from the shootout, Phillips and Mătăsăreanu, carried fully automatic rifles, with ammunition capable of penetrating police body armor, and wore military grade body armor of their own. The law did not stop them from modifying weapons, it just made it harder for someone in LA to buy gun. Since B&B gave assault weapons to police with out the waiting period. They were closed and the laws LA passed has closed all but the chain stores. If you want a gun from a mom and pop gun store, you have to go outside LA city.

    Ed we moved out of Ca. when that idiot Schwarzenegar became Governor, we didn’t want to live in a state where there were that many stupid people. We stayed at Lake Tahoe but in Nevada.
    James,thank you. As usual some moron “thunk dis one up” LAPD officers were only carrying 9 mm handguns against the robbers, kind of like Custer not wanting lever action rifles and sticking to single shot and topping it off by refusing to take the gatling guns he had. The headlines in both cases should have read “Management causes multiple deaths?injuries due to poor decision making” same with the state lawmakers. What next? microstamping maybe.

    With the idiot logic that law makers push why don’t they ban banks that way their be no bank robberies. All those gun laws do is favor criminals, gun control freaks are accually pro-criminal

    Maybe we need to ban the “Idiot Lawmakers” How about a new law specifically for them “The Felony Stupidity Law a Capital Offense”. They exempt themselves from other laws that affect the rest of us. Fair is Fair.

    Ah California, home to fruits and nuts making legislation…your elected officials won’t be happy until the only rifles and guns you will be allowed to carry are old Kentucky flint locks and blunderbuss….
