More laws for those who dislike the rule of law

Ya gotta wonder if this isn’t intentional…

Here are some more examples of gun laws that invited, and got, disobedience. Sunnyvale, CA, passed a ban on the possession of “high capacity” magazines. (In other words, the magazines the guns were designed to use in the first place.) And as is the experience in Connecticut, the new law “up north” is a miserable failure

Sunnyvale’s gun-control measure, which 67 percent of voters approved in November, so far has survived a series of legal challenges seeking to keep it from taking effect. As of midnight Thursday, anyone who possessed a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds was committing a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, six months in jail or both.

Sunnyvale police say nobody has showed up at the city’s Department of Public Safety to turn over their magazines. Owners had the choice of allowing police to destroy the magazines, sell them out of state or to a licensed gun dealer, or move them out of town

As FReeper lurk points out: “One of the basic laws of parenting. Don’t make a rule or a threat you can’t enforce.” The good folks of Sunnyvale probably never heard that one; especially from their own parents.
