"AR-15 is no more dangerous than a Swiss army knife": the court in California overturned the ban on assault weapons

76

In the US state of California, a court has overturned a long-standing ban on assault rifle weapon... We are talking about assault rifles, which were forbidden to buy and store by civilians on the basis of a decree from 1989.

San Diego District Judge Roger Benitez has passed a new ruling, which states that the prohibition of assault weapons violates a letter of the Second Amendment (US Constitution). This amendment, which entered into force in December 1791, guarantees the right of American citizens to possess and carry weapons.



Roger Benitez said in a statement that the document, in force since 1989, deprived Californians of the right to own assault firearms and placed them in unequal rights with residents of other American states. It was ruled by the San Diego District Court as "a discriminatory measure in violation of US Basic Law."

The new ruling states that the popular US AR-15 semi-automatic rifle is "an ideal weapon for defense." The American press notes that the Californian decree compares the AR-15 in this regard with a Swiss army knife.

Roger Benitez cites FBI data that in 2019, pistols were used the most for committing crimes in the state:

If from the use of assault rifles there were 364 victims, then more than 6,3 thousand from pistols. If we talk about the general statistics of crimes, then the AR-15 is no more dangerous than a Swiss army knife.

Judge Benitez's statements were criticized by California Governor Gavin Newsom. According to him, the state authorities will appeal the decision of the District Court of San Diego.

Newsom:

Comparing an assault rifle with a knife is more than strange. The AR-15 is a weapon of war. And the legalization of assault rifles in our state is a slap in the face for those families who have lost their loved ones as a result of the use of such weapons.

              Bow hunting is not prohibited in Russia. The law on this topic is very, very vague, but there is no direct prohibition. But everything is in the details - sport and hunting types of bows are weapons, the possession of which is not provided for by the citizens of Russia. Not prohibited, not provided. In general, as you want and understand. How the relevant authorities will react to this, I think it is better not to check on yourself.

                California generally turns Biden "on the baton"
                The mandatory wearing of masks was canceled, beaches were opened before all states, and they spit on squeals from Washington.
                They practically openly demonstrate independence.
                Now, weapons have begun to be sold to the population. Well, that's right, a game of independence, it can have different consequences.
                Which cannot but rejoice, both for the whole world as a whole, and for the Californians.

                Was banned, now allowed. Russian citizens are allowed to own bows with a pulling force of up to 60 pounds without any registration. The only thing is that 60 pounds of onion is enough for catching any game. Top hunting bows of foreign companies in the Russian Federation have been sold without any restrictions before. And they will be sold further, since they are made under tension, allowed for free circulation on the territory of the Russian Federation.

                In general, it seems to be already provided, but obliquely: there the whole story "dances" from the tension force, which can be changed by reinstalling the shoulders and other settings. One nodding acquaintance told how he honestly tried to register a bow in the RG as a hunting one; it turned out that they did not have the equipment to measure the tension, and then there was nothing to apply the marking with. As a result, they were advised to say that the onion gives out less than the allowed 22.7 kg (like) and not to fuck up the brain of busy people))

          if many have the same assault (and they have allowed it, and it means it will be) you will not shoot for a long time. Other citizens will shoot you. This is the whole point of a gun permit. It is not safe to attack armed people with legal (and illegal) weapons. So everyone knows about it and everyone can get a quick bullet from neighbors for shooting.

        Rich people in California took care of self-defense against BLMs and other Latinos who might start storming mansions and elite offices, shopping centers and film studios ... Some will be ready to defend their property themselves, others will hire guards or guys from PMCs. And it is the AR-15 that is best suited for waging civil war ...

        Such decisions are not taken at random by the judges, "it is not without reason"! And the judge has formal grounds to make such a decision, the legal position is based on the US Constitution, which should not be contradicted by state law. But for many years, such a revision was not relevant. And now the passions are heating up, it's time to "untie your hands"!

(instead of tractors, that is ...)! It turns out that the most dangerous profession in Russia in the 90s is farming! Not only was a "farm" gun specially developed and sold for farmers; so, even, armored personnel carriers and tanks were sold to farmers! At that time I even dreamed of becoming a farmer!

        Privately owned in the United States, there are up to a thousand battle tanks
        In the United States, any owner of a tank can keep it operational if he is able to get hold of the shells. In addition, if in a particular state or city there are no special legislative restrictions, then anyone can buy a federal license for possession of explosives for $ 200: however, for this the owner of the tank must confirm that he is not wanted and is not psychopath.
        And, of course, the tank driver must obtain the appropriate Class B or A license for heavy vehicles. Renewal of this type of rights also requires regular medical certification.

          California has the toughest gun ownership laws in the United States. It is very, very difficult to obtain a license to own a barrel there, perhaps at the same level as ours. And you can not dream of arriving with a barrel from another state, only state licenses are valid.
          Magazines for any weapon containing more than 10 rounds are prohibited.
          Semi-automatic long-barreled weapons are considered assault weapons.
          Licenses for it were issued mainly to residents of rural areas.
          An interesting requirement is that you can get a license to secretly carry a weapon, a pistol, if there is no such permission, then carry it, transport it only unloaded and closed in a suitcase. And suddenly such an indulgence was allowed to buy assault (semi-automatic) weapons.
          Why did it happen?

        So that's why they shot. People are shooting in guns-free zones. There are no shootings in Texas: they would immediately turn into a shootout, and this is not the same.

          more than half of the deaths from gunshot suicide.
          it is always easier to blame unarmed people (children with teachers who did not have the right to carry weapons at school and without armed guards) than to go out to the armed people and get a lead bone at the first shots.
          guns-free zone is the perfect place to kill. And banning weapons won't help. It's like a special place where you can shoot unarmed people by law with licensed or unlicensed weapons.
          Many Americans have made the right choice. And their Constitution was born with arms in hand.
          It's bad that Russia is being turned into a guns-free zone. Motivating with left-wing reasons, which have already been tested in practice and proved to be wrong.

      Roger Benitez said in a statement that the document, in force since 1989, deprived Californians of the right to own assault firearms and placed them in unequal rights with residents of other American states. It was ruled by the San Diego District Court as "a discriminatory measure in violation of US Basic Law."
      True democracy is now really no discrimination. Yes Thus, during the coming civil war, Californians will not feel prejudiced against the same Texans, and will be able to demonstrate the full range of their technical capabilities. fellow laughing

      AR-15 is no more dangerous than a Swiss army knife
      And the machine gun is no more dangerous than the AR-15, etc. The state considered itself infringed in the rights to acquire weapons, but now it seems that justice has been done and everyone has run to the gun store. Yes, even if automatic army weapons are allowed, it is not for us to live with them.

      Normal weapon, and most importantly, laws to protect private property, family and loved ones. Unfortunately, there is neither one nor the other in Russia. And there is absolutely no confidence that law enforcement agencies will protect you. If they cannot protect their own, as in the case in Novosibirsk, when the policeman's family was hastily taken to hide from the village from reprisals, and he himself was hidden in the police station, then what to talk about about mere mortals if God forbid they cross with thugs somewhere. I would feel much more protected if I had a Russian law on the right to use weapons on my private property against encroached people, as well as having the right to freely purchase up to and including assault rifles. And I would certainly have bought an AR-15 or something similar domestic.

      The problem is that after 1917 the people in Russia were simply disarmed and people are not able to defend their home and their families with firearms.

          Firstly, a rifle permit is only after five years of using a smoothbore, secondly there is a number of restrictions regarding the weapon that you can buy, thirdly, buying a weapon does not mean that you can freely carry it or shoot a robber who climbed into your yard at night - you will find yourself in prison. Fourth, the very receipt of weapons is still a hemorrhoid process. In fact, what we have is to go buy a pistol (not gas), no. In Russia, the legal possession by citizens of short-barreled military weapons - pistols and revolvers, as well as any weapons with an automatic mode of fire - machine guns, submachine guns is not provided. Hunting weapons must exclude firing in bursts and have a magazine (drum) capacity of no more than 10 rounds. In addition, for hunting weapons there are restrictions on the size (minimum length) and types of ammunition used (it is forbidden to shoot army cartridges.) And for comparison, US citizens have the right to own short-barreled and long-barreled rifled or smooth-bore weapons, as well as semi-automatic. Open carrying of weapons is now allowed in 23 out of 50 states. Without restrictions, hidden carrying of weapons is allowed in 38 states. But what about the laws on the protection of private property - In most US states, a criminal who entered private territory can be killed on the spot. Moreover, the Americans who became victims of the attack and who killed the intruder are freed from the obligation to prove their innocence.

          In some other countries, there are similar principles of law. So, in Israel in 2008, the so-called Dromi law was adopted. He exempts from criminal liability for causing damage to a burglar in his house. Three years earlier, a similar law had been passed in Italy.

      In the United States, the ban on assault weapons is initially rather strange. AR-15 is an assault weapon. The Ruger Mini-14 (even with a modification of the forend with a pistol grip and a folding stock) and the Chinese AK clones with a pistol grip "integrated" into the butt (like a "hunting" :) weapon) did not fall under this ban. It's just that in the USA the M-16 is the same "national brand" as our Kalashnikov assault rifle. In California, it was quite prudent to allow over-aged "kids" to buy their favorite toy :). The already existing ability to fire in a self-loading mode, with the same efficiency and the same magazine capacity, from other, very similar in performance characteristics, samples - this did not affect at all.

      Given that weapons need to be tested, it must also be said that they are neither good nor bad. It's all about the hand that uses them. Then everything can become dangerous. NERF type 22 LR caliber
