Welcome to 1942, not 1991. Not since a hysterical government looking for a scapegoat minority has an entire group been declared criminal with the stroke of a pen. In 1942, authorities declared thousands of Japanese to be enemies of the state. On Jan. 1, 1991, by a one-vote majority and the signature of a turn-coat governor's pen, more than 80,000 Californians became criminals. Why? Because they continue to possess as little as two pounds of steel, aluminum and plastic without the government's permission.

Dan Lungren was never enthusiastic about California's 1989 ban on assault guns. But once he took office as attorney general, in 1991, he was sworn to enforce that ban, which outlawed specific assault gun models, and to prosecute those who ignored it. A key provision of the measure allowed those who owned these exceedingly dangerous weapons before 1989 to keep them, provided the guns were registered.
