State Ballot Initiatives Will Decide Gun Owners’ Fate In Four States

Of course, California, takes the cake by banning all gun magazines over 10 rounds and forcing a bizarre state background system for ammunition purchases. (similar to the one that already failed in New York)

Bearing Arms sums the other three states:

Ballots in the state of Washington will hold Initiative 1491, the Individual Gun Access Prevention by Court Order. Voters will decide whether to allow the government to strip people who are ‘subject to extreme risk protection orders’ of their gun rights. The measure cites people with active restraining orders against them as well as individuals ‘risk of suicide’, but no mention of due process or penalties for falsely accusing individuals.

Finally, in both Maine and Nevada, residents will have an opportunity to vote on whether they want background checks to extend to private gun sales.

“2016 will be the year of gun sense,” said Kate Folmar, a spokeswoman at Everytown for Gun Safety

Great, the year of “gun sense.” Sounds like a nightmare.

Three out of four of these initiatives are in blue states where Hillary Clinton is heavily favored to win. To stop these blue state initiatives from passing, Hillary Clinton voters will have to vote for the Second Amendment. The situation looks pretty bleak. In California, a poll just showed that over 83% of voters support the ballot initiative.

To make matters worse, voters in California will be asked if they support “large capacity” magazines, but they won’t even be told how California defines the phrase “large capacity.” Some voters might think it’s 15 rounds like it is in Colorado, but actually “large capacity” means ten rounds in California.

There is still time to turn it around, but the situation is grim.

  1. The history of the last century indicates that whenever any government, the Soviet Union, National Socialist Germany or Red China, takes firearms from the people the next steps are always enslavement or multimillion person massacres. Remember that when anyone wants to take your guns or infringe in any way on your God-given constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms to defend yourself, your family, your property and your friends and neighbors from private criminals or, much more often from homicidal governments.

  2. The RIGHT to Keep and BEAR Arms guaranteed by the Great Constitution and Bill of Rights. Period

  3. communist will be communist and communist simply hate every thing about the constitution no matter what or how they simply are not happy unless they are violating it even when the 1 and only 1 job they have is to up hold and defend it george is probably rolling over in hos grave would dharge every elected official woth treason if still alive today

  4. Stupid ass people those who want gun control deserve every rape, killing, hostages , muslim life that comes their way. As for me i dont care what your dumb ass laws are or will be you get mine only one way. Bring lots of body bags you will need them. And guarantee you will be in one of them!!!!

  5. I don’t know what they are talking about in Cali. I recently bought a 9mm semi-auto in my state. It has a sticker on the side of the case that says, “Not Legal in California.” As of jan.1st this year, you can’t even buy a semi-auto handgun there anymore. They have removed guns basically, completely. What a Fucked up state. LIBTURD DUMBOCRATS

    • Sorry to say New York is worse. We have Dictator Cuomo who by passes the Legislature and makes Laws at Midnight by “Message of Necessity”. If all gun owners had voted last election we would have a Governor Aristino not Cuomo. I hope all firearms owners get out and vote this election or we may have a new Dictator Clinton. New York gun owners should have learned a lesson, it was a very close election. All you US citizens should learn from New York, we now live under a DICTATOR!

  6. Let’s not kid ourselves. These initiatives are not intended for good but to eventually strip all guns from citizens of the US. Anyone with any sense at all knows that much of this crap will not work but every step leads to the ban of fire arms in the US. The Second Amendment specifically says, NO INFRINGEMENT”. Required background checks on private sales? How absurd! Criminals do not follow laws. Anyone in their right mind knows that this will never work. Do these criminals in big cities like Chicago get guns by legal means? Of course not. Such a law has only one ending. More such laws will follow.

  7. Isn’t it obvious that the people who put that imigrant in the POTUS chair are the ones who think guns are a danger? Stupidity has no bounds. A gun is just an object. It has to have a criminal use it to be a threat.

  8. I live in the “People’s Republic Of Kakafornia”. The goose steppers are everywhere… When it is time eto buy ammunition I will go to Reno to get it…Screw this communist state..

  9. Uneducated voters think they can usurp the Constitution. They need to be stopped. What’s next? upending freedom of speech, religion, assembly, the right to petition the government for redress of grievances???

  10. well they will find out when they have no guns and the criminals still do , and big brother is no where around to protect there stupid asses, just why do you think ofreako is filling the country with illegals, terrorists and criminals from prison , he wants a war in the u.s. . then he can get the u.n. to move in and try and take over , the u.n. is the nwo, and just look how ofreako kisses up to them

  11. Does the 10-round plan ALSO control police handguns ? MOST of them have guns that hold 15 or more. Just because a gum may LOOK military, does NOT make it an “assault weapon”.

  12. Simple concept here, I live in California just carry ten to 15 ten round magazines, perfectly legal. As for the ammo nonsense, read the stupid law!! It has nothing in it to restrict reloaders from mail ordering components and loading any amount of ammo they care to. Additionally no limit of ammo purchases until the law goes into full effect in 2019, so stock up boys and girls and tell Sacramento Commies to shove a sock in it. If you currently do not reload start doing so. Best idea yet.

  13. Criminals will get guns, they don’t care about gun control. We need to stand up for our constitutional right

  14. I wonder if the second amendment is the ONLY amendment that is up for popular vote dismantling?
    Could a majority of white people vote away equality rights of black people, re-instating segregation?
    Could a Judeo Christian majority vote away Islamic religious rights?
    Is EVERY right ?guaranteed? American Citizens vulnerable to progressive socialist agenda REINTERPRETATION?
    Is it possible that ONLY the rights that stand as OBSTACLES to the “CHANGE” of our constitutional republic into a socialist sister union to the EuroSocialist Union for international globalist aspirations are open for dismantling?
    Same as in the EuroSocialist Union, Lynch’s HATE SPEECH LAWS shut down free speech against OVERWHELMING immigration.
    Fourth amendment protections are waived, suspended, and/or ignored, for fighting terrorism (as they import thousands of unvettable Syrian refugees) [sorry – HATE SPEECH LAWS – can’t connect those dots]) – for special emergencies – for public safety – (FOR NAZI-LIKE GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT IN EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES! (I read that Windows 10 is an intensive SPY PROGRAM – logging EVERY keystroke, and web page activity – TO BE TURNED OVER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT TO BE USED AS EVIDENCE AGAINST YOU)
    Need I mention – our second amendment has been REINTERPRETED into a meaningless “allowance” to a limited low capacity sporting arm “allowed” people the world over who have NO second amendment right to arms – you know – the firearms that are INEFFECTIVE against a foreign invasion, lawless violent riot, and most IMPORTANT – against fighting the GESTAPO UNITS OF AN OUT OF CONTROL GOVERNMENT THAT HAS EVOLVED INTO AN OPPRESSIVE TOTALITARIAN REGIME!
    Does anyone realize that the 10th amendment PROHIBITS state and local laws from disregarding the second amendment?
    10th Amendment:
    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, NOR PROHIBITED BY IT TO THE STATES, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
    There is NO provision that says – “Unless states hold an election and a majority decide to ignore the constitution.”
    The second amendment is NOT a right to a firearm – IT IS A RIGHT TO A CAPABILITY!
    ALL gun control is a progressive socialist plot to advance an agenda that REQUIRES

  15. that they “TAKE THE CAPABILITY”.
    And – in case nobody noticed – there are NO ramifications to their actions – no outrage – no riots in the street.
    They will take EVERYTHING if we let them!

  16. If the people in the four states that are up for grabs are stupid enough to vote these grabs legal then they deserve whatever happens to them, I feel sorry for the right thinking people in the four states that will suffer the consequences of the ignorant majority if the laws pass

  17. in illinois the state passed a law for mandatory backround checks on private sales , they didnt put it on a ballot -they just did it

  18. Liberals just love to strip themselves of rights. They believe that everyone else is as stupid as they are and therefore incapable of handling tools safely.

  19. Chicago has the most stringent gun laws in the country, yet it hasn’t stopped the killing of black on black. Then why do they keep coming up with more laws that only restrict the law biding blacks of protecting themselves?

  20. If corruption or stupidity allow Hillary Clinton, or any other Democrap, into the White House, Civil War and foreign invasion will quickly follow. Those who would rule the New World Order are growing impatient. If you thought Hitler, Stalin and Mao were bad. you ain’t seen nuthin yet.

  21. I am sorry to say that you are wrong about having failed in New York State. Our rights have gone away under the SafeAct. We are still fighting Governor Cuomos dictatorial edict by “Message of Necessity” at Midnight. It is now against the law to own magazines with more than 10 shots. Some were grandfathered but only if you could prove they were collector items and registered them. This is a Class D Felony under PL265.00(23) Possession of a large capacity feeding device. Any donations to “We the People of New York” to help in our fight against Dictator Cuomo and his “Messages of Necessity” would be greatly appreciated. We need to enforce the Constitution of New York and the United States and not lose the Bill of Rights to people like Cuomo! Molon Labe!

  22. The people of America appear completely ignorant to the fact that they are supposed to remember the times of the signing of the Constitution and “conform” to those ideals to uphold US Law as it was written, rather than amending it to fit some current temporary facilitation, or necessitation.

    “On every occasion [of Constitutional interpretation] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823

    “The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
    – Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788

    “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
    – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

    “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”
    – James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789

    “The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

    “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787

    “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776

    “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
    – Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

    “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.
    – George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788
