Ah, California. The land of beautiful mountains, amazing desserts, awesome surfing, the Motion Picture Industry, fake boobs and the first ever gun law that allows courts to seize your weapons if a close relative thinks you’re cracked.
Yep, as of last Tuesday, your moody, manic, anti-Second Amendment, Castro-loving, eco-terrorist, tree-humping, Prius-driving twisted sister can call you “crazy”, report you to the cops and boom … Deputy Wedge Figgus can confiscate your Remington 870 ‘til a court decides you’re not demented.

California residents can now petition a judge to temporarily remove a close relative’s firearms if they fear their family member will commit gun violence, thanks to a new safety measure signed into law Tuesday (9/30/14) by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Under the “Gun Violence Restraining Order” law, a successful petition would allow a judge to remove the close relative’s guns for at least 21 days, with the option to extend that period to a year, pending an additional hearing, according to Reuters.. The law is the first of its kind in the U.S., and will be an extension of existing legislation that temporarily prohibits people with domestic violence restraining orders from owning firearms.”
California, like Obama, has a one-size-fits-all answer for all conundrums and it is this: Mo’ Gubbermint!
