3. Oh, you mean like when they passed Prop 8?

The reason we have a representative republic and not a democracy, is because we don't want a simple majority to pass laws that impact the minority.

That's why we have a constitution that includes a Bill of Rights. This law, if passed will wind up in court and be thrown out the same way Prop 8 was.

The end result will be multiple millions of dollars for the NRA, SAF lawyers, paid for by the taxpayers of California.
