California Gun Rights Group Promises to Defy New Gun Laws

A group of 50 gun rights activists protested outside Sacramento, California's Cesar Chavez Plaza on Saturday against a newly enacted package of gun control measures, saying they will refuse to comply with the new laws, reported the Sacramento Bee.

The new laws — which ban semi-automatic rifles which discharge ammunition magazines at the click of a button, require background checks for people who wish to purchase ammunition and ban magazines which can hold over 10 bullets — were passed in the wake of mass shootings in San Bernardino in December and another gun massacre in June at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

According to the Bee, the protesters held signs which said "WE WILL NOT COMPLY."

"He passed them yesterday before we could get out here, which sort of threw a wrench in the plans," protest co-organizer Cory Gwathney told the Bee. "Now we're just trying to send the message that we're probably not going to comply. They're infringing on our rights, and we're not going to stand for that."
