The Latest Bureaucratic Attack on Gun Rights

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

As it now stands in California, if a clerk incorrectly entered your information in the database, you may have no simple means to exercise your Second Amendment rights even at a local store. There is a certain cynicism in the state approach, in that it still allows people to own firearms, but makes it difficult for many of them to get the ammo necessary to use them. It’s hard to see how burdening law-abiding citizens disarms criminals, though. This is just the latest, albeit most noxious, attempt to simply harass law-abiding citizens out of exercising their constitutional rights. We shouldn’t lose our gun rights because the state is too incompetent to maintain accurate databases.
