    California gun laws prohibit assault weapon used in Colorado theater shooting

    SACRAMENTO -- In California, the state with the nation's toughest gun laws, you couldn't walk into a gun shop and buy the AR-15 military-style assault rifle used in the massacre early Friday at a Colorado movie theater.

    Fully automatic and military-style assault weapons that fire more than 10 rounds at a time, like the AR-15, are against the law in the Golden State. But the other weapons that the shooter used to kill 12 moviegoers and wound as many as 50 others are legal to sell and possess in California.

    Authorities say James Eagan Holmes, a California native, used four guns in his attack: an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remington 12-gauge shotgun and two Glock pistols. The guns were purchased legally over the past several months at two national chains in Colorado, officials said.

    As soon as I woke up and read the story from Colorado I thought about the Stockton "masacre" of 1989. Why does this stuff ALWAYS happen around critical elections?? tom.:dunno:

    Thank God that CA has laws to keep the people safe. Just a shame CO did not have any laws in place prohibiting murder, attempled murder, assault, setting off tear gas in a public place. Maybe the perp was unaware of the Cinemark corporate policy prohibiting all but LEOs from having a firearm. With a larger sign tragedy could have been averted.

    Libs actually think more laws keep evil things from happening. That disconnect from reality is dangerous to all of us as long as they vote.

    I would guess it is pretty safe to say that no gang member in LA has a rifle of this type in their possession. I mean, they are outlawed, aren't they?

    Idyllic California. No shootings. No crime. No money.

    They bust them left and right around here with them, and then they plea bargain away the hi-capacity mag charge, which is a slap in the face to every law-abiding citizen who abides by the 10-round restriction. All the politicians really do is under-gun us.

    Interesting that you say that. Right before I moved from that place a gangbanger committed suicide by cop in Ceres, CA. He had an AK style "assault" rifle. This was considerably after the assault rifle ban had been passed.

    In fact, you can buy AR's in CA all day long, they are very popular just like the rest of the nation. There are whole stores that sell nothing but AR's.

    You betcha. 30 round mags. Flash suppressors. Pistol grip. Detachable mag. Unimpeded mag release button.
    Real ARs they are.

    Sorry, but a California "compliant" AR is not an "AR."

    I dunno what these monstrosities are, but I think I'd just buy a Mini 30. (Actually, I was living in kalifornistan when they passed the ban. I bought the mini.)

    And to add insult to injury, some limp wristed socialist kalifornia cretin politician is going to outlaw even the "bullet button" which is going to be the final nail in the coffin for off list ARs.

    Yeah, because somebody about to go on a killing spree is really worried about being compliant with the law.

    You can walk into a store and buy a S&W MP-15, you may have to attach the pistol grip yourself or replace the mag release.

    Exactly my point.
