Hopefully the handgun roster will be the first to fall, followed by the AWB. I know Chuck Michel is working on both.

The approved list is insane. Why would a blued model of a pistol be "approved" and a two tone model is not? Money!

Just like Traffic Cameras, especially red light cameras. Can't meet budget? Put up another 100 red light cameras and turn the yellow light durration down to the leagal minimum 3 seconds. Pretty frickin hillarious that the TEXAS Transportation Institute can do a test and evaluate that a reduction in crashes and tickets directly correlates to having the time to 4 seconds or more at any intersection, regardless of size.. . Increasing visibility of lights also has a tangible effect
Study: Longer Yellows Reduce Crashes (Texas Transportation Institute)

quote The study also found that the vast majority of red light camera tickets are issued within the first second a light is red -- in fact, the average ticket is issued when the light has been red for half a second or less. Yet right-angle crashes, which account for the majority of red-light related collisions, "with one exception, all of the right-angle crashes occurred after 5 seconds or more of red" (5-16). In other words, tickets are being issued primarily for split-second violations where collisions are not occurring.
un-quote


Many politicians don't really care about safety, they care about meeting budgets, quotas and whatever else their corrupt boss puts on their plate. Safety Generally isn't first, even at manufacturing facilities that say it is in their modo/creedo/mission statement whatever.. . Financials mean everything!!

Does this ruling affect the approved lists? DC is still able to restrict handguns to a very specific criteria including no capacity over 10 bullets and several other requirements. I thought this ruling just meant they can't restrict an entire class of firearms.

DC was trying to tie their "approval process" to that of CA. If CA falls, the rest will follow. Keep the heat on.
