Unwelcome Machine Gun: California Won’t Let Retired San Diego Cop Keep His Assault Weapon

I don’t know, sometimes when a police dog gets old, they’ll let a retiring police officer do an adoption deal, but that kind of thing’s not going to happen with assault weapons and retired cops in California anytime soon.

Why? Because of this recent bit here from the AG’s office.

See?

I don’t know, I wouldn’t mind living in a neighborhood full of retired cops with unnecessary firepower. It’d be just like Switzerland where every house has some sort of gun, practically. And nobody messes with Switzerland.

And wouldn’t this scene with Clint Eastwood be more effective if he had some sort of World-War I-era machine gun in his hand?

No doubt.

    That’s an M1-A1 ol’ Clint is holding, one of the finest “assault rifles” ever made. The laws governing conventional weapons with scary Halloween costumes, which the uninformed call “assault rifles” are just pap for voters to swallow.

  2. Randy Heaver says:

    The M1 rifle is not an “Assault Weapon” it is a Main Battle Rifle. Assault Weapons are full auto small arms.

    Simple. Remove the upper receiver, stock, all parts from the lower receiver and turn in the stripped lower then buy another lower and rebuild your rifle. Fuck the system!
