SACRAMENTO, Calif. Weeks after New York enacted the nation´s toughest gun laws, California lawmakers said Thursday they want their state to do even more in response to recent mass shootings, particularly the Connecticut school massacre. Democrats who control the state Legislature revealed 10 proposals that they said would make California the most restrictive state for possessing firearms. They were joined at a Capitol news conference by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, along with several police chiefs.
Comments: After reading that horrific article about the DHS nothing surprises me anymore.
when you make gun owners criminals, only outlaws with have guns. I see they are making sure the citizens can not use their 2nd amendment rights to insure the safety of their country. Opening up the boarders for any invading army to walk right in knowing no one has a weapon.
California is a Dem-locked state. If they want it, they can easily vote it in. The voters of this state are insane and will always vote for the Dem. If, by any chance, they vote for a Republican, it´s because the Republican is insane too.
Only the police should be entrusted with such weapons.
Just look at the maniac ex-LAPD cop running wild, and the performance of Torrence PD mistaking a blue pick-up carrying two middle aged Asian women for a gray pick-up carrying a 6-ft tall, 270 lbs., African American homicidal maniac.
>>> The Second Amendment is non-negotiable. Those who seek to infringe upon the rights it protects should be tarred and feathered.
The progressive/communists think 2013 is their year to create a dictatorship in this country. They think the sheeple will go quietly into the night, they haven´t even considered the damage they have done to the military and how they might react. They see the finish line and they just don´t care about anything else.
So the liberal democrat "legislators" in California seek universal gun registration. What´s more they want a ban on any semi-autos, detachable magazines and magazine sizes over 10 to apply retroactively. The final insult is the background check requirement for ammunition purchases. If these progressive fools keep up these attacks on individual liberties, there won´t be a responsible taxpayer left in California.
California is run by an ultra liberal Democrat government, their big problem is that they have already run out of money.
The national liberal Democrats want to turn as much of the USA as they possibly can into an ultra liberal run political region resembling California.
Right now the liberal Democrats don´t have enough voters to get that job done. That´s why they are pushing what they call a special "path to citizenship" for just about all the illegal aliens in the USA, between 11 to 20 million people.
The liberal Democrats know that if they can dupe the wimpy Republicans into giving them the political cover to get their "path to citizenship" amnesty through Congress, that the resulting 10 million or more new voters that they will eventually pick up as a result, will allow the liberal Democrats to permanently change the political balance of the USA to where they can flip states like Arizona, Florida, and Texas into the Democrat column and ensure that the wimpy Republicans never again have a chance to win future national elections, or even control Congress. If that happens the wimpy Republicans will have committed long-term political suicide.
Hey, Gov Moonbeam...why don´t you just get it over and confiscate all firearms in the state under some emergency order. From the legislative actions in your state, the US Constitution and Federal laws don´t matter anyway.
And while this doofus files his bill, the people in SoCal are being told to lock their doors and windows AND ARM THEMSELVES! The police are the targets of this crazy ex-cop and not anxious to expose themselves to a nut declaring he is after them. Get armed while you can.
What is there about California that makes people stay here? When I arrived it was different. Now this place is "enemy territory" and I mean that in every sense of the word. Are you people OK with a predatory government that takes advantage of you, steals your money and gives it to low life and limits your freedom to a point which it is largely gone? The USAF paid me to get rid of people like that in Vietnam and similar people are now completely running the government here.
I will answer that question. Cowards, weak, deplorable, non ethical, and certainly people that I do not want to rub elbows with. People who do not respect freedom. You elected these people, so I will assume you agree with all this. I do not trust anyone who would allow themselves to be treated this way and not take action. By the way, I do not define "words" as action. They are always ineffective.
There are things I can do, and one of them is in process. I am moving to Texas ASAP.
By the way, as the state of California cannot pay its bills. Texas is in the process of refunding billions to the taxpayers there because the government has much more money than it needs. I was raised there, I have realized my error in coming here and am returning.
1. It´s not about the guns. It´s all about control.
2. Reasoned argument on the subject is a fool´s errand. I´ve said that here often. Elsewhere, too.
3. That said, I´ll give myself dispensation to offer an illustration of the idiocy of "gun control" and the claims of "gun control" advocates. Consider the penalties for murder. Consider the penalties proposed for or in place for violating "gun control" laws. Now, proponents of "gun control" believe [or say they believe], and expect us to believe, that criminals and nuts will be stopped by wrist-slap sanctions when they´re not stopped by the harshest penalties, those for murder.
They´re nuts! [The "gun controllers" and the perps both.]
Check out the interesting picture with that article.
The following is directly taken from the State of California Department of Justice under the heading "THE SIX BASIC GUN SAFETY RULES": "When the gun is not in your hands, you must still think of safety. Use a California-approved firearms safety device on the gun, such as a trigger lock or cable lock, so it cannot be fired."
Anyone see any trigger locks on those evil guns Senor Mayor Villaraigosa is displaying?
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
