When it comes to the denigration of the Second Amendment, few locales are more willing to tarnish the Constitution than California; the west coast’s liberal stronghold.

Californians have always been a little bit off.  Not only does the Golden State boast some of the most incredibly damning left-leaning legislation in the entire world, but there is no sign of their democratically-charged chicanery ending anytime soon.

Now, in the wake of a several incidents of mental illness gone unchecked, the state is falling into the liberal anti-gun trap that the media helped to set.  This has pushed California’s lawmakers to reexamine what’s left of their citizens’ gun rights, and enact legislation that would make the west coast liberal safe haven the most oppressive state in which to own a firearm.

Their latest ammunition restrictions are so tight, in fact, that an American Olympian has been compelled to sue the state over them.

Six-time Olympic medal winner Kim Rhode has joined with gun rights groups and others to challenge the state’s new regulations on ammo sales.

Rhode, a California resident who burns through thousands of rounds per year training as a world champion trap and skeet shooter, is named as a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday against state Attorney General Xavier Becerra over the tenets of Proposition 63, which places a number of controls on the sale and transfer of ammunition.

The Olympian, who is on the 75-member board of the National Rifle Association, was joined in the lawsuit by its state affiliate, the California Rifle & Pistol Association, as well as a number of out of state ammo retailers who can no longer ship their products directly to state resident’s homes under the new rules.

The 31-page lawsuit argues Prop 63, which Second Amendment advocates characterized as “Gunmageddon,” outlaws direct mail order ammunition sales, puts all transfers of ammo under a “burdensome registration scheme,” imposes costly fees and price increases on bullet sales and mires would-be vendors in piles of Sacramento red tape. As such, it not only violates the Dormant Commerce Clause by discriminating against interstate commerce but also tramples on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

And while California’s chipping away at the Second Amendment is ultimately nothing more than a disturbing power play by the democratic left, there seems to be no way to stop it in the enormous state whose liberal population has long held the state’s conservatives hostage, politically.

This has led to a number of proposals for the state to actually be splitensuring that California’s conservatives aren’t mathematically trampled by their beach-dwelling liberal hordes.
