All you citizens seeking to remain within the bounds of the law with AR15 OLL (off list lowers) and compliance features are the target. Blatant disregard for the 2nd Amendment and a bizarre desire to disarm those who are least likely to commit violent crimes against their neighbors (think about it… if you are defending a meth operation, are you really worried about an assault weapons charge?) has resulted in Sen. Yee’s SB 249. Apparently, Sen Yee is convinced that all other criminals have been sufficiently dealt with, that we should now focus on those who are not currently criminals and create a whole new class to pursue.
What will signing some online petition do? I have no idea, but if it scares one spineless politician into thinking his re-election may be in jeopardy, resulting in opposition to this travesty, why not?

Q: What is SB 249?
A: Senate Bill 249 (Yee SD-08 “Firearms: assault weapon conversion kits”) is a California State Senate bill authored by Senator Leland Yee designed to prohibit possession, importation, making, selling, transferring, or loaning, any “conversion kit.”
If this Bill passes, beginning July 1, 2013, violating the newly-added gun control laws would subject people to civil and criminal liability.
Penal Code section 17(a) makes a violation of the proposed law a misdemeanor since the proscribed conduct addressed in the bill is not listed as an infraction. (“A felony is a crime that is punishable with death, by imprisonment in the state prison, or notwithstanding any other provision of law, by imprisonment in a county jail under the provisions of subdivision (h) of Section 1170. Every other crime or public offense is a misdemeanor except those offenses that are classified as infractions.” Emphasis added.)
