Re: “AK-47s Are Already Illegal

Despite what some have claimed there is no legal way to bring so-called assault weapons into California. (That is, castrated copies without automatic fire capability.) Federal laws prohibit dealer sales to an out of state buyer unless that sale would be legal in the buyer's state. Private sales between individuals requires that the transfer be done by a licensed dealer in the buyer's state. Violations of these laws are punished by 10 years in prison!

As to arms traffic, it is far more likely that Mixon's AK-47 came from Mexico, not the US. Full auto firearms are tightly controlled in our country. Since the drug cartels are importing real military firearms from South America it makes sense to sell some here. See this news report that documents the flow of automatic weapons from South America: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-mexico-arms-race15-2009mar15,0,229992.story
