Push in California to ban semi-automatic guns

After the attacks at the Aurora movie theater and Sikh Temple, there have been multiple calls for more gun control.  Well, that ought to eliminate multiple victim public shootings in the same way that they have been eliminated in Europe.  From Fox 5 in San Diego:
A proposed California bill expanding a 10-year ban on semi-automatic firearms with interchangeable magazines gained momentum.
The State Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and State Senate Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) announced their support of California State Senate bill SB-249 Monday following the mass shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin.
SB-249 was drafted by State Senator Leland Yee and is designed to prohibit anyone from importing, possessing, making, selling, loaning, or transferring a conversion kit.  Any person who does so would be punished by a fine of $1,000 or imprisonment in the county jail for up to one year.
Gun owners would have six months to remove bullet buttons on their firearms and attach a fixed magazine that holds 10 bullets instead. . . . .
More information on the proposed law is available here.  In case, anyone needs a reminder, here are some predictions about what would happen when the Federal Assault Weapons Ban sunset in 2004.
