It isn’t taken if the thief doesn’t keep it

That is what the 9th circuit said today when it ruled that California’s ban on standard capacity magazines was not an unconstitutional taking.

Accordingly, the ban on legal possession of large-capacity magazines reasonably supported California’s effort to reduce the devastating damage wrought by mass shootings

and as far as the ban being a violation of the takings clause:

the government acquires nothing by virtue of the limitation on the capacity of magazines.

Therefore, they didn’t take anything. The Australians were disarmed in 1996. By 2020, nearly all guns were confiscated. This was the result:

Two months later, and the military began taking Australians off to the camps:

The courts are not going to come to our rescue. There will soon be only two choices: Fight, or be taken away to the camps for our own safety.

Ah, but they do acquire something: a couple of additonal seconds to run while we reload, after squeezing off 10, when we finally decide it’s time to go take out the trash. And that concern is what every single attempt at the limitation placed upon the access to armaments has always had at its root, irrespective of any other bullshit reasons given.

No matter, there are plenty of solutions for the elimination of “feral pigs” that don’t involve high capacity kinetic projectile delivery systems. Many of those solutions are also more entertaining and viscerally satisfying for the suffering and terror they cause the condemned before their expiration.

I don’t remember the book or author, but I read in that fabled manuscript, the hero told a bad dude (not Cornpop) “I stopped using guns, when I realized how much more satisfying it is killing people like you, with my hands, up close and personal.”

Somebodies should have flanked the rubber bullet bullies with paintball guns and painted them. If it’s ok for them to shoot you and I then maybe it’s ok to paint them? But for all I know paintballs are illegal there, maybe?

An old time super soaker type water gun filled with dye that would adhere to the gas mask lenses. More effective recipe might include some sort of bonding agent to make it sticky.
