California Struggles to Implement New Gun-Control Measures

from http://freebeacon.com/issues/california-struggles-implement-new-gun-control-measures/ California has faced a number of setbacks in implementing the state’s latest gun-control measures, causing a number of deadlines to be pushed back and leaving some measures in legal limbo. After passing laws that expand the definition of “assault weapon” and make it illegal to possess gun magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, the state is facing myriad problems in trying to enforce the new laws. The first trouble came when the California Department of Justice (DOJ) attempted to draft their plan to register all of the rifles in California which have “bullet button” reloading devices and other rifles that would fall under the state’s expanded assault weapons ban. On June 26, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) determined that the DOJ had improperly sought to avoid the public comment period on the plan. That caused the deadline for registration to be pushed back six months. Then, on June 29, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of the state’s gun magazine confiscation plan. “The regulation is neither presumptively legal nor longstanding,” U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez said in his ruling. “The statute hits close to the core of the Second Amendment and is more than a slight burden. When the simple test of Heller is applied, a test that persons of common intelligence can understand, the statute is...

California Politicians Prioritize Anti-Gun Research Over Road Funding

from https://townhall.com/tipsheet/jennifervanlaar/2017/07/15/california-doesnt-have-money-to-fix-roads-but-drops-millions-on-gun-violence-research-n2355400 This year California legislators passed the largest gas tax increase in decades, a move which will hit the middle class the hardest. When middle class taxpayers got upset, Gov. Brown hit back, calling them “freeloaders” and invoking the “everyone has to pitch in for society!” talking points. Maybe they’d have more money if they weren’t spending it on things people don’t rely on the government to provide. One thing legislators have found the money for is anti-gun research. They call it “gun violence research,” but make no mistake, there is only one acceptable outcome for the research. During the 2016 legislative session lawmakers approved a bill creating the “University of California Firearms Violence Research Center,” allotting $5 million over five years to establish the center and fund operations. Five million dollars is a drop in the bucket compared to the billions California needs to improve roads, crumbling bridges, and deteriorating dams, but, as they keep reminding residents of the drought-stricken state, drops add up. The Center opened July 1 at UC Davis, with Dr. Garen Wintemute, a well-known name in both gun control and gun rights circles. He told the Sacramento Bee he “hopes to assess the effectiveness of current laws, including the newly adopted requirement that people who buy ammunition have the legal right to own guns, and of California’s new gun violence restraining orders.” Wintemute...

Women’s March Wants Gun Control, But Hires Armed Guards

The latest women’s march is calling for government to sieze guns, but they’re still hiring armed guard to protect them.   Guns for me, but not for thee seems to be the real message here. from http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/07/16/womens-march-surrounded-armed-guards-protest-nra-gun-rights/ True to the left’s habit of having one set of standards for itself and another set for the common man, participants in Friday’s Women’s March against the NRA and gun rights were surrounded by armed guards. In fact, NRA TV showed Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory getting into a car with armed guards all around: Tweet: https://twitter.com/Cameron_Gray/status/885894817259147264?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fbig-government%2F2017%2F07%2F16%2Fwomens-march-surrounded-armed-guards-protest-nra-gun-rights%2F Ironically, one of the protest themes at the march was, “Real Men Don’t Need Guns,” which is lefty talk for disarming the public while making sure high-profile liberals continue to live ensconced behind layers of armed security.   Women’s March Surrounded by Armed Guards As They Protest NRA, Gun Rights – Breitbart In typical leftist fashion, participants in Friday’s Women’s March against the NRA and gun rights were surrounded by armed guards.
