Waste not? Not in California.

With the State drowning in its own debt, the idiots in Sacramento still look for more ways to waste money. This time it's a long gun registry.

California bill would increase rules on rifles

The sponsor of the bill, Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles), actually tried to claim, "...that the number of handguns confiscated by law enforcement for crimes was nearly equal to the number of rifles and shotguns taken from criminals."

Weasel worded bullshit. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), of all crimes involving a gun, 86% were committed with a handgun. For the numerically challenged like Feuer, that means handguns were use over six times as often as long guns.

I suspect Der Feuer knows this which makes him a liar.

And, yes, dear reader, I know he is a politician. That just makes him a practiced liar.
