Great article from the Sacbee. Hope this sinks in with some of its liberal subscribers.

Yet Steinberg went on to denounce "loopholes in California's tough gun laws" that "have been exploited long enough." What loopholes? Exploited by whom? To what end?

In reality, the senator was lamenting how well firearm manufacturers have complied with California's law, which banned certain cosmetic features on semiautomatic rifles, shotguns and handguns.
Exactly!

Wow, I'm shocked. That is very unlike the bee to have anyone support the 2A at all. Even the typical liberal comments are at a minimum right now. I'm sure they are just busy at the check cashing store with their obama checks. Those comments will start rolling in later.

Wow! I never thought I'd see an article like that in the Bee.

Now, if only Mike Royko* was alive. I'd love to see him go after Steinberg and his ilk.

* - For those that don't know, Royko was a famous Chicago columnist that went head-to-head against Mayor Richard J. Daley and the Chicago political machine...

Did you see this in the comments? Steinberg and Lee refer to this for identification. Hilarious...

Do you want to know what a real "assault magazine" is? A rolled up copy of Vanity Fair used to bonk an obtuse lawmaker on the top of his thick head. Otherwise, a magazine is a magazine. Some hold seven bullets, some hold 10, and some hold 20 or 30. By itself, however, a metal box with a spring can "assault" no one.

Doesn't this qualify as one of the Seven Signs of the apocalypse?

Ben Boychuk wrote it. he is the only non brain dead regular contributor to the Bee. He probably had to sleep with the Editor to get her to put it in there. Unbelievable. or he has some really good pictures of her that she doesn't want to get out.

The bee never makes the mistake of publishing a well written counterpoint to their socialist handlers.

No worries. The world will only end when the Cubs win the World Series.

That ain't gonna happen any time soon....

Ummmm loopholes? California passed a law and manufacturers, some of them in this state, were complying with that law. Same as any other business... When they added emission requirements muscle cars didn't go away, they were made compliant.

Me, too - and received a nice (short) reply.

Ben Boychuk is only an occasional contributor to the Bee, resident columnist Marcos Breton has had several anti-gun diatribes lately (full of ther usual misinformation) and he's more likely to be read because his column is on the front of a page instead of buried in the Editorials page.
