Man Arrested For Bringing Guns To California

Authorities in Contra Costa County announced the arrest of a man who allegedly smuggled guns and magazines legally bought in Nevada into California where they are banned.

 

The man, Virgilio Salazar, 50, of Antioch, was arrested late last month as part of a task force effort after he allegedly purchased guns and magazines in Nevada and brought them back to the San Francisco Bay Area to resell. Police seized “a .223 Colt AR-15 assault rifle, CZ 9mm semi-auto assault pistol, three large capacity rifle magazines, and two large capacity pistol magazines,” during a search of Salazar’s home.

He was booked on felony charges under California law that include importing an assault rifle, possession of an assault rifle, and importing large capacity magazines. Salazar was released on $300,000 bail. Of note, the Contra Costa County Superior Court felony bail schedule, by comparison, sets bail for those charged with rape at $100,000 and child beating at $50,000.

    How the hell does California get away with this. Don’t they know the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution applies to all Americans, cost to coast. Our laws are based upon the Constitution, They have no right to take that freedom. Their politicians took an oath to support and defend Constitutional rights and or freedoms of the American people. All Americans, including California!!!!!!!

      The only problem is as it has been said evil only exist because good men fail to rise to the occasion or in this case take the bull by the horn‘s, of which we have only about 40% of the people who have those Gottes today, as history has shown only 20% at any given time cared and when the 20% 100% got the benefit, that’s the problem !

      Californians actually voted this law into affect. It was on the a ballot no long ago. They really only have their own self’s to blame. Well really it was the residents of LA and SF if you were to remove their votes it would not have past.

        Hi John, Thanks for the info, but you and I both know it takes more than that to arrest or take firearms. The Constitution applies to or covers all American citizens everywhere from coast to coast. Even though the law passed, they are still violating Constitutional rights for everyone else in that state. The only way it would be legal or binding is to eliminate the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution, which takes a vote of the people. Legally, a state, any politician or anyone else cannot pass a law or enforce it that violates the Constitutional rights of others. But California does what it wants, apparently because the rest of it’s residents don’t have the gonads or the intelligence to fight back. Who really cares anyway, I would never reside in that state. I wouldn’t be apposed to giving California back to Mexico. Let them try passing a law like that in Michigan, it would never happen.

          The California law should be nullified. It is essentially telling me that I can’t bring my lawfully owned guns from my home state if i decide to move there and the last time I checked, it is not illegal to bring property from one state to another if i’m relocating to another. WE DO LIVE IN “THE UNITED STATES” AND NOT SEPARATE COUNTRY STATES……THE CHICKEN SHIT US SUPREME COURT EVEN REFUSES TO TAKE ON GUN CASES AS IF THE 2ND AMENDMENT HAS BEEN EVISCERATED BY STATE RULES AND GUN OWNERS ARE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS—-ACCORDING TO THIS ARTICLE, I COULD NOT BRING AND SELL MY CAR IN CALIFORNIA BECAUSE IT DOESN’T MEET THEIR ABSURD EMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS AND IS OUTLAWED FROM BEING IN CALI…..

    How in the world did the “jerks of cali” catch him? Check points at the state border searching vehicles, dogs sniffing for gunpowder like for drugs? Or maybe he didn’t have the right papers?

      I wondered how, as a resident of CA, he could legally purchase a firearm of ANY kind in another state and pass all the background checks. The article states that they seized the weapons when they searched his home. How and why did they get a warrant to do that? Since the article states that he was arrested as part of a ‘task force’ operation, I would guess that he was already under suspicion for illegal acts and this was just a bonus for the LEO’s.

        That was my concern. A Nevada dealer would have seen his Cali address and surely would have said something to him. Look what they are doing to the Arizona resident who legally sold ammo to the Nevada shooter.

    What is scary is there are so many citizens who are so completely indoctrinated by/with/in the hate America to Destruction ‘Stupid ‘Kommunist’ agenda.

    And, few people even suspect, let alone know, that the individual Citizens Right to have and go about armed with the most modern firepower of the day = that can be purchased [anywhere – from anyone] or created by her and his neighbors or commerce is One of the Natural Rights secured to America Citizens by the Revolution, the creation and adoption of the Articles of Confederation – the US Constitution – affirmed by the Amendments; specifically 1, 2 , 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

    How many people know that the Revolution, Articles of Confederation, and US Constitution specifically deal with : stipulate the terms of who, what, and by whom ‘CANNOT’ be regulated in the matter of being and going about armed : which ‘CANNOT’include Individual Citizens… the regulating by whom part does not include any federal government – state government – county government – municipality – town – special district OR any public institution [or any alien]; Except involving custodial places – military bases – in time of war, occupied land, sea, air, and combat zones, every illegal alien – Terrorists.

    Which means that every national – local – alien gun regulation : ordinance is a Trespass of private : Individual Natural Right = a usurpation : a constructive fraud : utterly void; a pretense of official capacity to legislate – executive act – judicial decree and simulation of processes to create the pretense of the color of law, each of which are violations of the Oath of Office therefore, being frauds by the actors in their de facto government employee capacity.

    None of those moving people are actually government employees anymore = they are impersonating government employees which is a whole additional range of high crimes and misdemeanors : RICO.

    O! being violators of their Oaths of Office, as well as no longer being government employees, it means that none of them have the capacity of elector; therefore, none of them can be electoral – appointive – administrator candidates : government employees… which, the not having the capacity to be an elector’ therefore having no capacity to be a government employee reaches to : includes all illegal aliens.
    send to all your friends…
    …the place to start is forcing Trump to arrest the comey, mueller, wRay, rosenstein, sessions and confederates RICO operation to
    1. fix the 2016 election with investigative collusion fraud investigations the gang just made up;
    2. refuse to turn over subpoenaed documents to the various Congressional investigations in plots to support. Mask, and sustain the deep states greater : cia – fbi – nsa – batf 2016 election fixing and obstruction of justice RICO operations..

      Assault is an action verb which only applies to any tool used as a weapon to assault someone. Please stop using assault in conjunction with AR15 or any other rifle or pistol! It is a poor use of the English language. Words mean something. Use them correctly or stop reporting!

        No it is not a poor choice of words Specifically done that way so they can in the end define whatever they want as an assault weapon.

    Actually, since this guy isn’t a licensed dealer, he’s violated federal law as a straw purchaser. The California statutes are merely icing on the cake.
    Had he bought those items for himself only, or he’d been a licensed dealer, he’d have a good federal case against the State of California.

      Unless he actually sold them he was not a straw buyer. The report did not say he sold them but someone in CA must be a mind reader or just ass sumed that. Other than that he violated unConstitutional state law for posession. CA gun owners must unite and vote out the socialists and repeal every law the passed since 1960.

      You have to understand, States have rights in how far they can regulate guns, in this case. The Cali law has to be challenged before nullified. To my knowledge, there are no Supreme Court ruling that would show Cali’s gun laws are outside the constitution. Sadly.

        The founding fathers were quite clear when they made the second amendment the only amendment that said it shall not be infringed. The founding fathers knew how corrupt men’s hearts were and how quickly government would become corrupted by those who sought power and money.

          I agree with you. The problem we are facing is judges who have taken it on themselves to be legislators over upholders of laws. If one were to read the Federalist Papers and judges were to have interpreted the 2nd as such, we would be allowed the same armament as the military. I don’t really feel full auto weapons should be on the streets along with bazooka’s, but according to my understanding, the constitution allows for a Well Regulated Militia means we are allowed weapons comparable to military so the we may step in as a well armed militia should the need rise.

    George T, I think the word needed is grow some huevos. I also think California is in for a surprise when these laws get to SCOTUS under the 2nd and 14th amendments. Such a ruling could also knock the crap out of N.Y. and Connecticut laws. The 14th, in such a case, would be,perhaps, be more important than the 2nd.

    While it’s my personal opinion Cali gun laws are unconstitutional, this fellow should have known his state laws ahead of time. I also wonder how the storm troopers came to know he had bought those weapons? Have they enhanced the charges to Intent to Sell just because they can, or did Salazar make an attempt to sell his guns? If the charges have been enhance because they can leads one back to the question, how did the cops know, who tipped them off and was the search totally legal.

The Democrat party has been the Communist Party for the last at least 70 years and there are about 30 to 40% of the Republicans who have joined them which will have shown you that one of those goals was to take over one or both parties.

    We are in the gravest danger of being overthrown by the Marxists/socialists. Freedom loving Americans, not just those of us who have officially taken an oath to uphold, support, and defend the Constitution, must avow to also uphold, support, and defend the Constitution. The enemy is not foreign, it is domestic. Any and everyone who aligns themself against the 2nd amendment is a domestic enemy since that is the sole part of the Constitution that guarantees the rest of the Constitution. Why do you think there is such a rabid conspiracy to get rid of the 2nd amendment? These shootings have been orchestrated by domestic enemies of the Constituiton to get public sentiment against the right to keep and bear arms and unfortunately many Americans have not grown up in families where guns were as normal as mom and apple pie, so they are susceptible to being duped by these clever, sinister people who want to “fundamentally change the USA”. Sound familiar? Barack Hussein Obama.. That name should have been a dead giveaway. Get out and vote to keep and get Americans loyal to the Constitution in office. That’s the only way we can keep these Luciferian thugs from destroying our Constitutional Republic. And make no mistake, they are truly servants of Satan if they want to overrun this country founded through the inspiration and providence of Almighty God.
