SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is set to consider more than a dozen bills that would impose the nation's toughest restrictions on gun ownership if he signs the entire legislative package into law.

The Democratic governor has not indicated his intentions.

Among the bills sent to him by the end of the legislative session last week is one that would ban the future sale of most types of semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines. It would outlaw an entire class of weapons that includes most assault rifles.

Other bills seek to restrict ammunition sales and who can legally possess firearms.

One high-profile bill that failed to pass the Legislature would have banned ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 bullets.

A dissappointing situaiton that such a beautiful state has long been run by a group of radical socialists. I will never live there. I could likely make much more money in Kalifornia than I do here in Nevada, but I could not breath under their yoke of social slavery or pay their social welfare taxes to support the illegal immigrants. WHEN WILL IT END?

I just returned from a 650 mile trip through northern California with my 2 dogs and girlfriend. Unarmed except for a 12 gauge shotgun in the camper. No handguns for defense. I have a Nevada CCW but Moonbeam decrees that it is illegal in Kali. I have a lifetime hunting license for Kali so the shotgun would be legal. I carried many fuel cans and have dual tanks on my truck. We spent NO money in Kali. None. All because of Brown and his ilk deciding we should be unarmed while the criminals are armed. I need money for the hospital for when the criminals shoot me and I cannot shoot back.
