SB 374: California Set To Attack Second Amendment By Demanding Gun Registration

WEB Notes: This is not a surprise to many of us, but it is sombering to see nonetheless. The state of California is well on their way to usurping the United States Constitution and your right to bear arms. The first step to confiscation is registration and this is exactly what they are calling for with this bill just passed by the California State Senate. This is not an official law at this time, however, it appears that this bill will become law shortly.

SB 374, as amended, Steinberg. Firearms: assault weapons.
Existing law regulates the sale, carrying, and control of firearms, including assault weapons, and requires assault weapons to be registered with the Department of Justice. Violation of these provisions is a crime. Existing law defines a semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and other specified features and a semiautomatic weapon that has a fixed magazine with a capacity to accept 10 or more rounds as an assault weapon.
This bill would, instead, classify a semiautomatic, rimfire or centerfire rifle that does not have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept no more than 10 rounds or fewer as an assault weapon. The bill would require a person who, between January 1, 2001, and prior to January 1, 2014, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool, to register the firearm by July 1, 2014. By expanding the definition of a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

China Incinerates 3 US Shipments of Genetically Modified Corn

China has destroyed a total of at least three genetically modified corn shipments with origins from the United States in a move that echoes the way in which the nation of Hungary actually went and destroyed acres upon acres of Monsanto’s GMO corn fields.

WEB Notes: Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” and so is His Word which never changes! The Bible says homosexuality is a sin.

Opponents of gay marriage have been likened to Christians who used the Bible to support slavery, by a senior Anglican bishop.

(Haaretz) – Israel’s National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror sketched out what Jerusalem’s “red line” is vis-à-vis the S-300 missile systems Russia intends to send to Syria before the 27 European Union ambassadors in Israel.
