Ca is trying to eliminate hunting by making open carry of a long gun illegal. It was just introduced. Open handgun carry went away Jan 1st.

Just be thankful you can still own a car with an internal combustion engine in Kalifornia. The psychotic tree-hugging idiots that run the state would like nothing more than for everyone to ride their bikes and skateboards around, but I digress

Are their no laws in Kalifornia regarding the sale of cat converters to salvage yards/recyclers? When I lived back East their was a law on the books that required salvage yards/recyclers to obtain positive I.D. on the seller and keep strict records on every transaction. A violation was like $10K per occurrence and possible loss of business license. I can't believe that regulation happy Kali would not have a similar law.

nope, no laws on that. its been on the news quite a bit though. some savage yards only take one a day and require photo id. but then again its not a law so most places just making their money.

No doubt. Luckily, I live in an area that doesn't get rocked too hard. Nobody out here has basements. That was strange coming from the midwest where it's odd not to have a basement. (gotta hide from those twisters )

Same here...in Oregon basements are normal...here it's all slab. We had a few shakes up there...but nothing too crazy. I wish I was old enough to see St Helens blow up though...that was a big deal.

So people in CA are stealing catalytic converters to sell to junkyards? Reminds me of the metal recyclers here. Fools keep getting electrocuted trying to steal copper wires from abandon looking buildings only to find the lines are still energized.

Couple thieves even defaced a WWII memorial by stealing copper plaques with the names of fallen soldiers on it right before Veterans Day. The plates were damaged but recovered in China or Taiwan about to be "recycled". You would think the 4' x 8' size plaques with soldiers names would pop up some red flags with the scrap metal buyers.

In Missouri it was aluminum guardrail from the side of the highway. Recyclers were supposed to call the cops if someone brought in road signs or guardrails.

That's exactly what happened. Cops would find them electrocuted to death at base of the pole. If the electricity did not kill them, then the fall did.

sorry to hear bro. put in a claim through your insurance. i hope your comprehensive deductible is low. but even if its high, itll prolly be cheaper going that route. get a cable wire welded to it after its done.

Smog checks in CA are first done after a vehicle is SIX YEARS OLD.. like my 07 is due now, then its required every 2 yrs after that. My cats are gone, hiding safe in the garage, can't steal what's not there. Now I'm going to play the game of installing it back for the smog check and taking them back off again until 2015..-lol
