California governor vetoes tough gun control bills

http://news.yahoo.com/california-gov...202721952.html


SACRAMENTO, California (Reuters) - California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed several gun control bills on Friday, a move that essentially rebuffs an effort by fellow Democrats to enact a sweeping expansion of firearms regulation in the most populous U.S. state.

Brown vetoed the strictest bill, which would have classified any rifle with a removable magazine as an assault weapon, calling it an "infringement on gun owners' rights."

"I don't believe that this bill's blanket ban on semi-automatic rifles would reduce criminal activity or enhance public safety enough to warrant this infringement on gun owners' rights," Brown said in his veto message.

Since when does Jerry give a f**k about gun owner's rights?

Since the Morse Giron recalls?

I don't have a clue. Just the same glad it happened. Doubtful CA has Recall provision.

You would have to ask the CALGUNS group that one.

Only 2 governors have ever been recalled in the history of the USA. North Dakota in 1921 and California in 2003. So, yes, California does have recall.

A sad day when Jerry Brown is one of the saner democrap politicians around.

A whole lot of people got involved with letter writing and phone campaigns to put a whole lot of pressure on the Governor's Office. This is why these bills got veto'd. CalGuns.net did a lot of organizing as did several other groups. Sadly, there were several bills that still got signed.

This veto really surprises me, and makes me wonder if fear has begun to set in on them after Colorado recalls were successful. It'll be interesting to see if there are enough votes to overide it, which is my bet they do.

Oh yeaa-Great guy he signed 11 anti gun bills =One of them was a total ban on Lead ammo for hunting !!



Jennifer Kerns, a Republican strategist involved in the Colorado recalls, convened a new "Free California" grass-roots group at the state GOP convention last weekend in Anaheim. The group then announced it wouldn't "rule out 'Colorado-style recall elections' if Brown signed the most objectionable gun control legislation into law.

Gun rights activists are grateful that Brown vetoed Steinberg's SB374, but the governor still "signed the most sweeping set of gun control bills in the nation into law today," Kerns
