…by which I mean shitty states to live in if you’re a gun owner, that is.
First up is our perennial anti-Constitutional state, California:
They’ve already proposed a requirement for gun owners to lock up their weapons, They’ve previously suggested a 10-year prohibition on firearm possession for anyone convicted of two drug or alcohol offenses within three years. They already have proposed a gun tax to fund violence prevention. It seems those things aren’t enough to add to their gun control basket.
Yup: the Golden (Shower) State is going Full Europe (and you never go Full Europe). However, not even Europe is considering what Illinois is talking about:
That’s why [some asswipe from suburban Chicago — Kim] is proposing gun buyers reveal their public social media accounts to Illinois police before they’re approved for a firearm license.
You have to know how bad a thing is when even the dickheads at the ACLU (who loathe the Second Amendment) are opposing it.
And of course, New York is trying to be even worse than Illinois:
FuckwitDidech says his bill is a less intrusive version of a similar measure that’s been proposed in New York state. That version allows police to recover a gun license applicant’s entire browsing history.
And then there’s Connecticut, which is trying to limit ammo purchasing through taxation:
A first-term Connecticut lawmaker wants to hike the price of ammunition in the state through the application of a special tax.
“I’m hearing push back about the need to protect one’s home… but how much ammunition does someone really need to do that?” Gilcrest said in a post to social media.
Anytime I hear someone say something like that, I buy another 500 rounds of ammo.
Man, it’s a Good Thing I don’t live in either Illinois or the Northeast anymore; I’d be fucked harder than a $5 whore during Fleet Week.
The best thing I ever did was leave Chicago for Texas. The second-best thing I did was toss my Illinois FOID card into the Mississippi River on my way down.
