Hooray! California OKs Licenses For Illegals, Restricts Gun Ownership

It’s hard to believe what an upside down nation we have become, especially in the People’s Republik Of California

(LA Times) Laboring late into the night Thursday to finish their work for the year, state lawmakers acted to allow many more immigrants who are in the country illegally to obtain California driver’s licenses, a measure Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to sign.

The driver’s license measure would significantly expand the number of immigrants in the country illegally who could have such documents. Some young, undocumented residents are already eligible for licenses under state law, if they qualify for temporary federal work permits.

“This bill will enable millions of people to get to work safely and legally,” Brown said in a statement issued immediately after the bill passed. “Hopefully, it will send a message to Washington that immigration reform is long past due.”

I’m sure you’re thinking exactly what I’m thinking: there should be no need for them to get to work safely and legally, because they shouldn’t be in the country in the first place. Interestingly, the licenses will have a special designation of DP (drivers privilege) yet no one is pitching a fit, like they did for North Carolina’s plan.

Legislators also moved to expand the state’s already stringent gun controls, voting to outlaw sales of rifles with detachable magazines and enlarge the list of crimes that result in a 10-year ban on possession of firearms.

Under SB 374, by Senate leader Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), those who already own assault weapons without fixed magazines would be required to register them by July 1, 2014. A second bill, by state Sen. Lois Wolk (D-Davis), would expand the list of crimes that could disqualify Californians from possessing guns.

The bill would restrict ownership of some 95% of rifles in production, ones which are rarely, if ever, used in crime, but used quite a bit for hunting. I’d love to tell you what the expanded list of crimes are, but the web address for the bill, and, the root address for the website to see all legislative action, is down. So is the website for the California legislature. And, the website for the California governor. Sheesh, it seems every website run by the government of California is down. I guess someone forgot to pay the bill.

    Dang. Why not just outlaw guns and be done with it. At this point they’re only allowing a few dozen rifles. I wonder if jay-walking will lead to being banned from ownership?

    Boss asked me a question today: If an illegal person who is a pharmacist crosses the border and begins his practice, would they get amnesty for being an illegal pharmacist?

    But, gotta hand it to CA for boning themselves to death. Congrats CA. You’ll be there before ya know it. Hey, CA?! How’s that MS-13 thang going? Got a handle on that yet?

    I’m just amazed that there are any real businesses left there after all this. I mean, those who’s creators and owners voted for Repubs. Why are any of them left? I know there has to be like 20-30% of the businesses are run by republican voting people. Why are they still operating there?

    Why does any self-respecting Repub still live in CA, for that matter?
