THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.
"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Democrats may expand ban on assault rifles
They are coming for your guns
(San Jose Mercury News) - California's Democrat attorney general is backing a renewed effort to expand the state's ban on assault rifles in the wake of recent mass shootings.
The bill introduced Thursday by Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu of San Francisco would bar the sale or transfer of most semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines.
Attorney General Kamala Harris says AB1663 would close a legal loophole that allows firearms manufacturers to include "bullet buttons" that let firearm owners rapidly exchange empty ammunition magazines for ones full of bullets.
Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed similar legislation in 2014.
A narrower bill, AB1664 by Democratic Assemblymen Marc Levine and Phillip Ting, would only outlaw bullet buttons.
Lawmakers are planning to introduce numerous gun control bills this year following a deadly terror attack involving assault rifles in San Bernardino last month.
