The California Department of Justice on Monday filed an “emergency regulations” proposal. If adopted, Californians would be required to have REAL IDs to purchase firearms and ammunition beginning on July 1. The proposal is being made despite the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives previously saying Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) could continue to non-federally compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards.
If a person doesn’t have a REAL ID, buyers are required to provide documentation, in conjunction with their non-REAL ID, showing they’re legal citizens and are allowed to possess a firearm. . .
When a person gets a driver’s license or ID card, their identity is supposed to be verified. That’s why it’s been an acceptable form of identifying someone for so long. When someone applies for their license they have to take in a birth certificate, provide their fingerprint and verify their identity. California opened themselves up to a can of worms when they began issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. Now the state’s IDs are no longer federally compliant.
The reason the IDs are no longer federally compliant is because of Assembly Bill 60, which gave driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. In fact, the American Conservative Liberties Union of Northern California provided a guide for illegal aliens who have licenses under AB 60 because other states and federal jurisdictions don’t recognize their ID as legitimate. . .
Gun owners are now having to jump through hoops, at the last minute, because California decided to meddle down the identification process and provide driver’s licenses to anyone and everyone. Now California gun owners are being forced to get REAL IDs because the state wanted to treat everyone as a citizen.
