California feel-good gun laws

Self-defense not a good enough reason for concealed carry.

“SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — In a victory for gun control advocates, a federal appeals court said Thursday people do not have a right to carry concealed weapons in public under the 2nd Amendment.”

And in more victories for gun control advocates:

“The state Senate on Thursday approved sweeping new restrictions on using guns in California in response to the December mass shooting by two terrorists that left 14 dead in San Bernardino.

“Lawmakers approved 11 bills including measures mandating background checks for Californians buying ammunition and outlawing the manufacture and sale of semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines.”

Had the laws been in effect, of course, the terrorists would not have been able to buy ammunition for their illegally purchased weapons, since the two would have recognized their inability to pass a background check.

But, hey, if it makes people feel good, it must be a good law.
