    Californian Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is hitching his 2018 gubernatorial campaign to a statewide ballot proposal that would sharply restrict the sale of ammunition.

    “It seems to me the most dangerous part of the weapon is not the weapon itself, it’s the ammunition,” he said April 1.

    He wants anyone buying ammunition to endure a background check similar to the one that would-be gun buyers currently have to pass to buy a firearm.

    According to the Press Democrat, Newsom, speaking at the Graton casino, told a story about being denied a Sudafed cold medicine purchase because he did not have a driver’s license to show at the pharmacy counter. He suggested it is strange that a person has to show ID to buy cold medicine but not ammunition.

    A major tenet for Democrats at the state and federal level is gun control, and one would not be wrong for observing that the kind of gun control pushed is often similar — if not identical — to past or existing gun controls that have failed to deliver the reduction in death and violence promised.

    In other words, the gun controls pushed in one state are often simply a recycled version of gun controls that are failing in another. The same thing can be said of federal gun control efforts, where the gun control specifics pushed by Representatives, Senators, and President Obama are often demonstrable failures before they are fully introduced.

    Here are five of the worst gun control proposals regularly recycled and put forward at the state and/or federal level:

    Hollow-Point Ammunition Ban — Democrats in San Francisco have banned hollow-point ammunition in the city. The argument is that hollow-point ammunition is more dangerous — due to its expansion on impact — and therefore using full metal jacket bullets is safer. But reality teaches a completely different lesson. The NYPD used to mandate full metal jacket bullets for their officers, but reversed course when they realized the lack of expansion in a full metal jacket bullet tends to allow the bullet to pass through the perpetrator’s body and strike innocents behind him or her. In other words, the absence of hollow-point ammunition actually contributes to a higher rate of collateral damage.

    On March 25 Idaho Governor Butch Otter signed permitless concealed carry legislation which makes the Second Amendment the official carry permit for state residents 21 years and older.

    Open carry of a handgun for self-defense was already legal in Idaho and proponents of the permitless concealed carry legislation–Senate Bill 1389–argued that a law-abiding citizen openly carrying a gun ran the risk of the breaking the law if his jacket, shirt, or other article of clothing inadvertently covered the firearm. SB 1389 removes this risk by recognizing the right to carry openly or concealed without a permit.

    The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 27-8 and passed the House by a vote of 54-15.

    Breitbart News previously reported that SB 1389 preserves the concealed permitting process for those who still a want a license for the benefits of reciprocity with other states.

    Start at page 15. GVR with a per curium decision ripping apart the SJC's reasoning in the case. Alito and Thomas issue a concurring opion just to remove all doubt.

    This is huge, it's really huge.

    On March 18 the Idaho House concurred with the Senate by passing legislation that abolishes the requirement for a permit to carry a concealed handgun in the state.

    The legislation–Senate Bill 1389–now goes to Governor Butch Otter’s (R) desk.

    Breitbart News previously reported that the Idaho Senate passed SB 1389 on Wednesday by a vote of 27-8. The bill abolishes the permit requirement for Idahoans 21-years and older who want to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense. Carrying a handgun openly in Idaho is already legal, and SB 1389 ensures that people carrying guns will not suddenly be criminalized if their jacket, sweat shirt, or other article of clothing covers their gun.

    The NRA-ILA reports that the Idaho House followed suit on Friday and passed the measure by a vote of 54-15.
