California Democrats are proposing massive gun control push that would require all guns to be registered and confiscation of all 166,000 registered assault weapons in the state. The Democrats also are pushing for permits to buy ammunition.
CBS Local reported:
Mercury News reported:
All semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines would be banned, all guns would be registered and no ammunition could be bought without a special permit in California under a sweeping list of bills rolled out Thursday by state Senate Democrats.

The 10-bill package constitutes the single largest gun control push in decades in the Golden State, which already boasts some of the nation’s strictest gun laws. It joins equally controversial proposals from Assembly Democrats that would regulate and tax ammunition sales and consider taking the state’s 166,000 registered assault weapons from their owners.
The bills have a good chance of passing through as only a majority approval is needed and the Democrats control the House and the Senate.
