will gun manufacturers change for California market
 
Will it looks like semi auto rifles with deatchable magazine will be outlawed. Will gun manufactures. Change for that market. Would like to start seeing tub fed and internal magazine semi rifles. Or will they let that market go because any new rifles will shortly also be outlawed after coming to market

I'd say that it would be a lot of money to waste on such a small portion of their client base. It would make better business sense to spend that money on improving the current product that the majority of potential buyers will be looking at.

Will they make some accommodations? Sure, but I doubt it will be any kind of big push and many manufacturers won't bother.

They may modify rifles so the magazines cannot be removed. Has the idiots considered or banned "Stripper" clips. These are Damn fast.:)

It'll be just like Massachusetts. Manufacturers will slowly get fed up and write California off. It'll start with less options being available due to the extra cost involved. California will continue to pass bs laws that cost manufacturers more time and money and eventually they will just walk.
Just like Massachusetts.

Seen the small market argument before so hears some number. Their are 38 million people in California. That's a about 12% of the us population. Thats no small market. Wander how hard it would to make a matlin60 in 38 SPL or 357

The problem isn't the number of people in California, but the number of people in California buying firearms, specifically semi auto rifles. That cuts the numbers down drastically.

Exactly. I would assume that more people in Cali. are into medical marijuana than semi auto rifles.

The ownership of firearms is low compared to the population. There were 600,000 legal transfer in 2012 with 5,000 denials. Polls show 61% of California voters are in favor of more restrictive laws. :(
