Living in California is not a good prospect for gun owners. We have a (totally arbitrary) list of pistols that you can’t buy, you can’t buy magazines which hold more than 10 rounds (again, totally arbitrary), an “assault weapons” ban (which is so convoluted, you need a flowchart to figure it out), and generally have terrible firearms laws. We also have some of the most ridiculously hoplophobic politicians in the entire country.

Unfortunately almost all of my family lives here, as does my wife’s family, so it doesn’t look like I can escape this madness any time soon. So I vote, and I carry on fighting the good fight here.

I know many others that are in the same (or a very similar) situation, and my sympathy goes out to them.
