“Working as intended.”
That’s how an attorney with the Gifford’s Law Center described Proposition 63, California’s cockamamie ammunition background check system which, in less than six months, has denied over 60,000 Californians their right to purchase ammunition.
That equates to approximately 20% of all ammunition sales being rejected by the California Department of Justice. So, of course, those 60,000 denials must have been violent felons who were forbidden from owning firearms altogether, right?
More than 99% of the denials were false-positives.
People whose only crime was having a change of address, a misspelled name, or simply not being in California’s registry.
These law-abiding Californians were denied their God-given, and constitutionally-guaranteed right to bear arms, and the Giffords Law Center is thrilled that the law is “working as intended.”
