    "‘Bullet Button’ Used To Get Around California Gun Laws
    May 1, 2012 12:08 AM

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) — California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. But one wouldn’t know that going to the firing range these days. AR-15s and AK-47s are the must-have guns of choice. How can that be?
    Every time California tightens up the assault weapons ban, the gun industry finds a way around it. The latest example involves a tiny device.
    John Largaespada loves his AR-15 and goes to the range every week to fire it. And he’s got plenty of company. “There is usually like a 30 minute to an hour wait for rifle lanes,” he said....

    The gun control laws here are ridiculous. Remind me of why I can't even hit the guy that's stealing my TV on My property, In my house, nonetheless shoot him. A threat to me may not seem like a threat to the courts here.

    On a side note, there's only one gun store serving the 7.5million citizens of San Francisco. And, I salute them.

    The socialist "Americans" here somehow (i don't know the details) got the other firearms store that existed to close down. They tried to shut the last one down, and Thank God, failed.

    Sad to say, the only real course of action to fix the fucking stupid that runs Cali is with a firearm.

    Wait, so an AR with a telescoping stock, pistol grip, and regular removable magazine is illegal in Cali? :confused:

    It happens every so often.

    We'll see how long the CA AW ban has legs to stand on.

    One thing that caught my eye in the article was the mention of "going undercover" at a gun show. WTF, it's not a whorehouse/meth den in the ghetto, it's a fucking legal gathering of gun enthusiasts buying and selling legal firearms and firearm accessories.

    Jesus. California is bonkers.
