California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom says that he has far more than the required 365,000 signatures required to get his “Safety for All” initiative on the November ballot. If passed, it would require background checks for the purchase of ammunition and ban the possession of magazines holding more than 10 rounds Attorney Chuck Michel, co-chair of the Coalition for More Civil Liberties, says that gun owners, professional shooters, law enforcement officers, district attorneys, prosecutors and more are demonstrating the depth of opposition to the initiative. He points out that the burden on the legal system would be substantial: NICS cannot be used for an ammunition check system, and courts would bear additional responsibilities. It puts the spotlight on the wrong people, law-abiding gun owners, instead of the criminals that are committing crime. Following the passage of Proposition 47, Michel says that politicians like Newsom are trying to shift attention away from the out of control crime problems in the state.
