In Wake of Mass Shooting, a Gun Bill
Is Pushed in California

New York Times, by Jennifer Medina

LOS ANGELES — Just days after a 22-year-old killed six college students and himself near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, state lawmakers are championing legislation that would permit law enforcement officials and private individuals to seek a restraining order from a judge that would keep people with a potential propensity for violence from buying or owning a gun, in a process that would be similar to the one currently used for restraining orders in cases of domestic violence. (Snip) It is unclear, however, if the measures contained in the bills could have prevented his actions if

Comments:
California already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country - some of them might even be Constitutional- and yet it doesn´t stop the perps.
And what´s to stop a scorned intimate partner / ex spouse form reporting all manner of "problems" with their ex? This law puts faces to the term "knee-jerk reaction".

This proves that liberals don´t care about violence - they are only interested in taking our guns to impose tyranny. If they gave one whit about reducing violence, they would be pushing knife laws.

And this would have prevented the deaths of the one who were stabbed to death how? I guess their deaths are not as worthy as those who were shot.

How about a law against looney liberal parents who instead of using discipline to put their kids on the correct life road, instead put their kids on ´the drug of the month´ for the ´designer learning disability´ that is in vogue.

More kids get killed on the streets of Chicago every weekend, but these screaming hypocrites couldn´t care less until one of their kids get killed, then they turn it into a National Disaster to politicize for their own pet agenda! How disgusting!

" Gun control advocates have recently started pushing for such restraining orders,
which have passed in Connecticut, Indiana and Texas and are being considered
in other statehouses across the nation."
Indiana and TX are Republican states.
FTA- " The law would work in much the same way domestic violence restraining orders do —
with a petitioner directly requesting a restraining order from the courts,
or asking law enforcement officials to do so.
A judge would be required to have a full hearing to decide whether to
grant the restraining order within seven days and then rule on the length of time it would be in effect.
Law enforcement officials would
then be able to temporarily seize any firearms the person owned and place him
or her on a list of people prohibited from purchasing weapons."
A judicial hearing would have exposed the level of this man´s
pathology.

Federal mental database tracks folks with mental problems that flag them not to be able to buy guns - the NICS database. Most states don´t report all cases that s/b included - see fixnics.org. Like the Naval Yard mass murderer should have been placed on the list after incident in Rhode Island, but RI does not comply with existing federal firearms laws.

Plenty of laws on the books to reduce mental cases - pols just want headlines and votes ´to do something´ - by infringing on 2A rights.

Colorado Springs, CO - About 10,000 immigrants in the country illegally have signed up to get Colorado driver´s licenses when they become available next month. The Gazette reported Wednesday that the state has added four full-time employees and 13 temporary employees to keep up with demand.

SALT LAKE CITY - FBI agents arrested two former Utah attorneys general at their homes on Tuesday and charged them pair with felonies stemming from a two-year investigation into claims of bribery and corruption, prosecutors said. Republicans John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff are accused of establishing a pay-to-play culture in office, and of taking bribes to look the other way or offer protection when donors to their political campaigns ran into legal trouble. "This has been a complex, nuanced, large investigation and there are multiple players in it," Salt Lake District Attorney Sim Gill said at a news conference.

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could have a tax-free $350,000 dropped into his bank account if the current investigation into his disappearance from his base in Afghanistan was not desertion, and if he is deemed to have been a prisoner of war for the five years he was held by Islamic militants, Fox News has learned. The 28-year-old soldier, for whom the U.S. traded five senior Taliban operatives held at Guantanamo Bay, was set to return to active duty Monday after spending six weeks in medical rehab at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. “Essentially he’ll be working a desk job,”

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia — Four Slovenian ski officials were suspended Friday for allegedly rigging the results of pop violinist Vanessa-Mae to help her qualify for the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Competing in Sochi for Thailand as Vanessa Vanakorn, using the surname of her Thai father, she finished a distant last among the 67 racers who completed the two runs in the Olympic giant slalom. To earn enough points to be eligible for the games in February, she had to compete in official races in Sweden, Norway, Slovenia and Switzerland.

´We´re really sorry´: US sends 14,000

No, the United States isn´t trying to build a military force of centenarians. It just seems that way after the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation´s military draft and warning that failure to do so is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment." The agency realized the error when it began receiving calls from bewildered relatives last week. Chuck Huey, 73, of Kingston, said he got a notice addressed to his late grandfather Bert Huey, a World War I veteran who was born

DENVER — In what may come as a surprise to residents of Colorado Springs and Pueblo, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t think those cities have roads. Bloomberg told Rolling Stone that he was “sorry” about the recalls of two state senators last year over the Democratic state legislature’s gun-control laws, but added that their districts were so “rural” that, “I don’t think there’s roads.” “In Colorado, we got a law passed. The NRA went after two or three state senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads,” said Bloomberg in the interview published online Wednesday.

Two New York men are suing the New Jersey Lottery after they threw out a Powerball ticket worth $1 million. Salvatore Cambria and Erick Onyango, of Suffern, New York, argue in their federal lawsuit that the lottery didn´t quickly update its website with the winning numbers from the March 23 drawing. Cambria tells The Record newspaper he asked Onyango to check the website soon after the 11 p.m. drawing. Cambria tossed the ticket when the numbers didn´t match. The men now think the site was showing the previous drawing´s numbers. They say they realized they had won the next day.

The seasonally-adjusted price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs hit an all-time high in May, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
