"To get the word out, the company is offering one-way trips for $48. That's expected to go up to $65 once things are fully up and running, but that's still cheaper than the cheapest nonpromotional airfare you're going to find, even on a budget carrier like Southwest. Add in the convenience of its pickup and drop-off locations at the Caltrain station in San Francisco and the Santa Monica Pier in LA and the SleepBus strikes us as a viable alternative to air travel, and a far better option than the Greyhound – at least until the high-speed train is complete."

Don't hold your breath on waiting on that.

In response to pre-litigation demands from the NRA and CRPA, the Los Angeles City Council has voted to repeal a city ordinance prohibiting the sale or transfer of “ultracompact firearms” in Los Angeles.  The city ordinance defined “ultracompact firearms” as handguns with “an overall length of six and three quarter inches (6.75”) or less or an overall height of four and one half inches (4.5”) or less, as measured with the magazine detached.”

The repeal of the ordinance was a direct result of NRA and CRPA attorneys threatening legal action against the City.

Gun owners in California are already subject to the strictest gun-control laws in the country, including a statewide restriction on the sale of handguns that are not listed on DOJ’s “Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale.”  By banning the sale of certain handguns labeled “ultracompact” under the ordinance, the City prohibited the sale or transfer of certain handguns that are listed on DOJ’s roster—handguns that have been tested and are specifically approved for sale in California.  Because the ordinance conflicted with state law in this respect, the ordinance is “preempted” by the state law and invalid.

On September 20, 2016,NRA and CRPA attorneys submitted a pre-litigation demand letter to the City, pointing out that the ordinance was preempted because it conflicted with the state law regulating what handguns can be sold, and was therefore invalid. The City stalled the repeal, but NRA and CRPA attorneys submitted repeated public record requests, and relentlessly pushed the City attorney’s office until the City finally repealed the ordinance.

Significantly, this isn’t the only recent NRA/CRPA victory in Los Angeles worth celebrating.  In 2015, the City adopted an ordinance prohibiting the possession of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.  The NRA and CRPA filed a lawsuit challenging the restriction.  That lawsuit, titled Bosenko v. City of Los Angeles, included 30 duly elected California Sheriffs, two law enforcement organizations, CRPA, and a number of individual gun owners as plaintiffs.

The following year, both Proposition 63 and Senate Bill 1446 were enacted, making it a violation of state law to possess these standard capacity magazines.  As a result, the City’s ordinance was duplicative of and preempted by the state laws.  In exchange for dismissal of the Bosenko lawsuit the City agreed to amend their ordinance to include a “sunset” provision so the ordinance would expire and be invalid and unenforceable after July 1, 2017, the date which the new state laws were set to take effect.

The city ordinance has now expired.

Both Proposition 63 and Senate Bill 1446, however, suffered a major defeat in federal court after District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez issued a preliminary injunction in the NRA and CRPA supported case of Duncan v. Becerra. That injunction prohibits California from enforcing the state law banning the possession of standard capacity magazines that can hold over 10 rounds. Now that the state law has been enjoined, and because the Los Angeles ordinance is no longer in effect as of July 1, there is no law prohibiting the possession of standard capacity magazines in the City of Los Angeles.

This is welcome news for many California gun owners, including those who do not reside in Los Angeles.  Thousands of law-abiding gun owners routinely travel through city limits to reach popular ranges such as the Angeles Shooting Range and other destinations that require traveling through city limits with firearms and the magazines that would have been prohibited.

I don't mean to beat up on California; it's a great place.  My beef is with leftism and all their lies and their failures.

Experiments in Democracy  It turns out that the state fighting hardest against income inequality has the highest poverty rate.  The state that pays people the most to be poor has the most poor people.  Incentive economics working!  The regulations in housing that protect the haves, hurt the have nots.  Laws like minimum wage that knock people out of their first job, also knock them out of their second, third and fourth jobs too.  Who knew?  (us)

http://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article172973181.html
California’s poverty rate remains nation’s highest

The state that bans drilling has no drilling revenues, and so on.  The state the promised pensions without revenues to pay them has budget challenges. 

The state that had no qualms, even linguistically, about making housing unaffordable with 'affordable housing laws' has the most homeless.

California's housing costs are driving its No. 1 poverty ranking

It's not like socialism is failing everywhere it's tried.  We still have the USSR and Chavez-Venezuela's shining examples...  okay, scrap that.

When will they ever learn?

They will never learn. Every leftist thinks they will be the ones with the clipboards, telling others what to do.

Jerry Brown signs sanctuary STATE bill into law.
http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Jerry-Brown-signs-bill-making-California-a-12255884.php

They don't respect our laws.  How is this different than Roy Moore not implementing gay marriage passed by one swing vote activist Supreme Court Justice?
-------------------
ccp on Catalonia leaving Spain:  "Like California separating from US."

Okay, what if they did?

What if we respect self determination.  They already have split.  Let them go.  We will need some ports and to keep our military assets that they don't want anyway.  They can keep their share of the debt.  I'd like to see that repayment schedule.  Much of the state can stay, let them vote county by county or precinct by precinct, and let others join them.  Hopefully we can negotiate free trade and travel for anyone who was a citizen before the split.

Here is a political map as recent as 2000.  Note red and blue reversed!



Can we build ports in the 2000 'blue' areas?

5 Bills Get Governor's Signature
 
This time every year, Gun Owners of California waits patiently to assess the damage of Governor Jerry Brown’s pen.  Speculating what he would sign or veto has always been a crapshoot of sorts, and this year was no exception; there were hints he would sign some bad ones and veto a few, but in the aftermath of the Las Vegas tragedy, the guessing stopped.  His deadline was midnight October 15, so when the clock struck 12 last night, we learned the good news – and the bad.
 
GOOD NEWS:
 
•   VETOED  SB 464 / HILL/ D  - That’s right – Governor Brown said NO to this bad boy, which was one of Gun Owners top legislative priorities.  SB 464 would have required firearm dealers to install security measures such as concrete pillars in front of stores/and or vaults that meet certain standards.  In spite of the veto, GOC will not forget that Big 5 Sporting Goods worked out a deal with the author to protect large retailers like themselves that would have put smaller dealers in financial jeopardy. In his veto message, the Governor stated “This bill would require additional security enhancements on the premises of all licensed firearms dealers in California. State law already requires that firearms dealers enact security measures to avoid theft. Local jurisdictions can-and have-gone further by adding additional specific requirements. I believe local authorities are in the best position to determine what, if any additional measures are needed in their jurisdictions.”
We agree; GOC lobbied the Legislature and the Governor heavily on this ill-conceived and costly proposal.
 
BAD NEWS:
 
•   SIGNED    AB 7 / GIPSON / D – Prohibits the open carrying of an unloaded long-gun in unincorporated areas of the state.  This is an unnecessary statewide mandate; this could have easily been addressed by local authorities.
 
•   SIGNED  AB 424 / MCCARTY/ D – Removes authority of school officials to authorize a CCW license holder to carry on school grounds.  Unfortunately, the Governor no longer believes this decision should left in the hands of those officials responsible for the safety of the students and staff.
 
•   SIGNED  AB 1525 / BAKER/ R – Requires additional statements on the dangers of owning a gun to be printed on the actual firearm packaging.
 
•   SIGNED   SB 536 / PAN / D – Requires the Department of Justice to provide information on gun violence restraining orders to anti-gun the Firearm Violence Research Center at the University of California; permits DOJ to cherry-pick who gets what data.

•   SIGNED   SB 620 / BRADFORD / D - After initially failing by a significant margin, this so called “criminal justice reform” bill passed after some serious arm twisting by the Democrat legislative leadership.  The Governor approved the bill which gives courts the discretion to NOT issue mandatory sentencing provisions for the felony use of a firearm.   In our opinion, SB 620 represents an extraordinary double-standard on guns and has the real potential of putting the safety of Californians in jeopardy.

(MARC:  What is the problem here?  Sounds to me like it allows for discretion for the judge in sympathetic cases , , ,)

The real good news is that the Governor, the Senate and the Assembly have done their damage for 2017, but this doesn’t mean that Gun Owners will be relaxing just because the politicians are taking a break.  We are busy working in the courts, are gearing up for the 2018 legislative session, and most importantly, next year’s elections.  Stay Armed and Informed with GOC!
