I knew in some states you need to possess a license to carry some tear gas spray. I was kidding and teasing the californian citizen behaviour.
But you are right, I didn’t know that even CS ctges were illegal in your state.
It is worse than I thought!
I fisrt discovered California in 1974, and, coming from abroad, it was wonderfull.
Coming to the States yearly, I saw the freedom decreasing more and moer.
Things started to become harder and harder when they became crazy about smoking. I stopped coming (except if I am obliged to take a plane landing to LA) when they cancelled the Pomona show.
California’s problems are not comming from left hand politicians. As proof, your governor is not even democrat but republican.
But are due to its citizens’ way of thinking : submission, intolerance and egoisme.
Some californian collectors complain because they can’t own such or such gun or ctge. Do they complain because in some places you can’t even smoke in your private garden?
In fact it is a question of society and if California is always the precurssor (not always in fact, read further down), in fact all this behaviour is speading all over the States and the world.
All the western countries will be (if aren’t already) fascist states (lack of freedom) and this for the benefit of governments (they like all the citzens being the same and not having funny guys collecting dangerous things) and with the help of the citizens (egoisme, intolerance, and submission).
If you add disinformation by the media and manipulation by the goverments you will have a society like in the book of George Orwell, 1984.
But you are still very lucky in California !
You want to know the next step ?
Go to England and count all the public cameras in the streets . In some places you have one every 8 yards !
(I am not taling about private cams in companies, drugstores and so on)
After being obliged to give back to the police all their weapons, they are watched about 300 times a day by police cameras.
And 98 % of the British population is ok with that.
But , a fact less known, and very important for your …, is the fact for exemple, when you are in some british airports, not only your luggages are X-ray but also your body !!
Did you know that ?
