It's no surprise that the anti-gun legislature is pressing on with their radical and blatantly un-constitutional legislation to rid law-abiding citizens of their ability and right to protect themselves and their families from the unlawful ... and from the government itself. Senators Leland Yee and Kevin de Leon are back with their re-vamped bills that either died in a previous legislative session or were struck down by the courts as being un-constitutional. But of course, the dis-approval of both the constitution and law-abiding citizens isn't enough to stop them from forwarding their agenda.
