California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed 15 gun-related bills into law Friday, tightening the state's already-stringent Second Amendment restrictions. One of the bills, which expands a so-called "red flag" law to allow co-workers, employers and educators to seek gun violence restraining orders against firearms owners they fear are a danger to themselves and others, was vetoed twice by Newsom's predecessor, Jerry Brown. Newsom also signed a companion bill allowing the gun violence restraining orders to last one and five years, although the gun owners could petition to end those restrictions earlier. The bill also allows judges to issue search warrants at the same time as they grant the orders.

2nd amendment rights? Illegal search and seizure? Any other rights they are taking away? Kalifornia is now the proper spelling for this police state! When does the revolution start?

Gavin just might get that call to run for president. He's hastening Cali's demise; he could do the same, in short order, to the rest of the country.

When Trump shuts down the border, make sure they draw it at Idaho, Nevada and Arizona. Let California fend for itself since it considers itself so progressive. Ditto WA and OR.

Interesting that one of the bills puts gun confiscation in the hands of "co-workers, employers and educators " who tend to be unionized clones, politicly progressive, hate guns, hate people who like guns, and hate anything to do with "unalienable rights". Funny, though, but, still no knife control laws in Kalifornia. Assault knives are still ok?

When you let commies cheat and gain power, this is what you get. These 'laws', just like the nfopa86, gca68 and nfa34 are unconstitutional, no matter what their creatures on the courts say. Too many 'citizens' don't grasp that they are in charge, not their hirelings. But they would have to band together to take back control and they don't seem to have the stomach for that. Too many 'bread and circuses' moments so far.

As a citizens of California we have decided to take the example set by our "elected" leaders. If the state can declare themselves a "sanctuary" and not follow federal immigration law, we have declared our homestead a "sanctuary" against those state laws with which we disagree. However, the pity is TK's weapons were all lost in that boating accident on Clear Lake. MAGA - Its the Constitution, stupid.

California is a cautionary tale for the rest of the country, exemplifying what would happen if the Electoral College is eliminated. The vast majority of the counties in California are conservative, but are overwhelmed by the huge population centers. The result? Gavin Newsome and the communist legislature.

Basically any one ... a nosy neighbor, an angry ex-boy or girl friend, any jilted lover of either sex, former marriage partners, teachers, co-workers, etc. can file a complaint and "red flag" you. You will need to turn over your weapons while appealing that "red flag" call ... which will take years and cost a small fortune. Have an argument over sports teams? You're a threat. Walked your dog past my house? A red flag for you! Your kid pushed my kid (according to my kid, of course) and I throw down the foul flag against you! Complained your pizza arrived late and cold? Guess what? How anyone can vote Democrat escapes me. It has to be a mental disease.

After living happily in California for most of my life, I'm finally leaving. I'm currently in Northern California visiting family on my way out. What I see up here is almost apocalyptic. Smoke from forest fires everywhere. Massive swarms of cars and people like wasp nests kicked over. And unbelievably, here in the United States, in the 21st century, the power turned off. For days, not hours. It's the opening scene of Blade Runner come to life. Or maybe soon, Hunger Games. Keep an eye on this situation. If anything can jolt the low information voters who keep voting for these cult-like neocommunists, it's the bolt of reality that hits you when you have to dump the rotting food in your dead freezer or knowing that your way cool Tesla is now a giant brick in your driveway. California is now a demonstration state for the awesome Green New Deal. It's the first stage of showing how it will be when the state utility decides to protect Gaia by shutting down the power grid. Their plan to take away all the guns just may be a little late...according to many comments I heard at one closed gas station. Goodbye my once beloved, California.

Tyrants will always try to confiscate the people's arms (guns) so that they are made defenseless against the tyrants. That was the reason the British "Red Coats" were sent to Concord and Lexington in 1775 -- to confiscate the colonial American's arms. And, concerned that the United States government could someday become tyrannical, is why the Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment in the Constitution. Californians need to be concerned. And, the rest of us need to wake up.

I found this to be of some interest. FTA: "The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) opposed the bill, saying it "poses a significant threat to civil liberties" because a restraining order can be sought before a gun owner has an opportunity to dispute the request."

Imagine a world free of consequences. More than that, a world where your bad acts are largely ignored and where those that aren’t are absolved, where excuses are created and lies are told by others on your behalf. This is how so-called journalists treat their fellow Democrats. Elizabeth Warren straight-up lied about being a Native American. She did it to get jobs, high-paying jobs. When someone finally got around to noticing that she’s so white her camouflage in a snowstorm is nudity, her story fell apart. But it didn’t matter. The media made sure to protect her, downplaying her 1/1024th rounding error percentage of possible Native American DNA.

Hunter Biden: The mere mention of his name seemingly triggers the vapors among cable TV hosts and their guests. When President Trump turned to the Bidens and Ukraine in a speech, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut off the coverage, declaring she had to protect the listeners: “We hate to do this, really, but the president isn't telling the truth.” When Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) tried to answer a question about the Ukraine scandal by referencing the Bidens, “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd angrily told him not to “gaslight” the nation. The Bidens, simply, are not what well-bred people discuss in polite company, apparently. Indeed, many journalists seem to be channeling

Last week The Washington Post revealed the alarming news that House Democrats were considering having their anonymous “whistleblower” testify from a remote location, and in disguise. Just as shocking as the details of this plan was the justification the Post ladled on this Democratic effort to hide impeachment information from the public. It explained, high up in the story, that the cloak-and-dagger approach was merely Democrats expressing “distrust of their GOP colleagues, whom they see as fully invested in defending a president who has attacked the whistleblower’s credibility and demanded absolute loyalty from Republicans.” This, from a newspaper with a tagline of “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” Maybe the better journalistic epitaph is:

The issue of gay rights and recognition and acceptance of the LGBTQ community has moved at warp speed—in political terms anyway—this past decade. “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage,” said the candidate Barack Obama in 2008. At Thursday night’s nationally televised forum on LGBTQ rights, candidate Beto O’Rourke showed how far, and how quickly, the Democratic Party has moved. The former Texas congressman caused quite a stir when he said he would support revoking the tax-exempt status of religious institutions—colleges, churches, and charities—if they opposed same-sex marriage.

The California Democratic Party has spent more than $800,000 on legal costs stemming from three lawsuits alleging discrimination and sexual misconduct by former chair Eric Bauman. The sum includes more than $430,000 in attorney’s fees alone, including payments to law firms representing Bauman. According to a Times review of state and federal campaign finance filings, the state party has paid $378,348 in legal settlements to Alton Wang, William Rodriguez-Kennedy and Kate Earley. The trio originally filed suit in January, alleging a culture of harassment and sexual misconduct that was “well-known and apparently tolerated” by top officials.

“There is no Deep State!” That’s been the anti-Trump media argument ever since President Trump took office and his administration started leaking like a cheese grater. Lots of major news organizations made the claim, interviewing supposed insiders – from CNN to The New Yorker and The Nation. New Yorker Editor David Remnick rationalized the pushback against Trump in 2017: “The problem in Washington is not a Deep State; the problem is a shallow man – an untruthful, vain, vindictive, alarmingly erratic President.”

A few days after Donald Trump committed the worst foreign-policy blunder of his presidency by betraying America’s Kurdish allies in northern Syria, former vice president Joe Biden, the elder statesman and co-frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary, was on a national stage talking to CNN’s primetime audience about “round-the-clock sex” at “gay bathhouses” in San Francisco. Biden was bumbling his way toward making a point that old stereotypes aren’t true, and he concluded that “gay couples are more likely to stay together longer than heterosexual couples.” Biden’s conclusion was not, you know, actually true according to social-science studies.

Jerry Brown, who was also an enthusiastic advocate of gun control. Brown vetoed the legislation twice.
