Anti-Gun Politicians shelve bill (SB249) Semi-Auto De-Facto Ban in CA

They cannot stop lying and brainwashing, especially when they lose to the pro-freedom forces. The lies about Semi-Autos, how they function, and character assassination against gun owners are at the top of the media mind control menu every time. The standard incorrect bait and switch pejorative language of "assault rifle" and "military style" vs "semi-automatic" or "self-loading". The outrageous blatant lie that California compliant semi-autos are capable of  so-called rapid magazine changes when equipped with a "bullet-button", which in fact was expressly designed to slow down magazine changes(!).

Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) said that his proposal would have closed a loophole in California’s strict gun law... Yee said in a statement. "When California enacted our assault weapon law there was no intention of allowing such easily changeable magazines on military-style weapons." Yee said he would explore alternatives including the possibility of the state Department of Justice adopting new regulations. State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris had endorsed his bill....
