I am very disappointed in Gov. Schwarzenegger for signing the microstamping bill, which makes illegal all magazine-loaded handguns in California. No manufacturer makes a firearm that complies with such a flawed technology, and no manufacturer will make such changes simply for the California market.
Why are the politicians of California so quick to pass a law that takes away the constitutional right of citizens to defend themselves against criminals? In one signing, Schwarzenegger has made criminals out of all who would defend their families against criminals with Grandpa's old 1903 Colt or 1911 .45, or any other clip-loaded handgun.
Are our politicians ever going to stop this nonsense, or are we going to be using baseball bats or golf clubs to defend our families? Remember, the criminals will still have guns. Laws such as this only apply to law-abiding citizens.
I will never give another dime to a major political party since the Republican Party has apparently turned anti-self-defense just like the Democratic Party. The Governator has turned into a wimp, just like the other politicians who want a nanny state.
