New bill could raise the price of concealed weapons permit fees (Video)

(ABC 10) – Firearms Policy Coalition lobbyist Craig DeLuz, said because the bill language is so vague and removes any cap on what can be charged for permits, many people are going to be priced out of a CCW.

“So unless you’re elite and wealthy, you’re not going to be able to afford to get a CCW in some counties,” DeLuz said.

Reacting to The Threat of/from Orlando (Video)

(THE OUTDOOR WIRE) – In California, Senator Isadore Hall called gun owners “crazy, vicious and heartless”. He doubled down and said if you were a gun owner you were responsible for the attack in Orlando and had (I’m not making this up) “a dirty, filthy mouth that needs to be washed with soap.”

Really?

Kudos to the Firearms Policy Coalition of California for sending their lobbyist Craig DeLuz by Senator Hall’s office with a note -and a bar of soap.

FPC’s Craig DeLuz Frustrates Legislator’s Anti-Gun Agenda and Destroys AB 1673

(FPC) – Check out the video below of FPC Legislative Advocate Craig DeLuz in action, educating the California Assembly Public Safety Committee as to why AB 1673 makes no sense whatsoever.

AB 1673, authored by Asm. Mike Gipson (D-Carson), re-defines “firearm” to include “…the unfinished frame or receiver of a weapon that can be readily converted to the functional condition of a finished frame or receiver”

An unfinished frame can include a block of aluminum or a sheet of metal.

AB 1673 would also require that these same bricks or sheets of metal be transferred through a licensed dealer, submitted through DROS and subjected to an unconstitutional 10-day waiting period.

Not only was Craig successful at totally frustrating the author, he was also successful in convincing the Chair of the committee to postpone the bill for the time being.

Gun debate: Californians support more gun control, poll finds

(Contra Costa Times) – DeLuz, from the Firearms Policy Coalition, said ultimately polls don’t matter so long as the courts keep upholding gun owners’ rights. “The right to keep and bear arms is not up for popular debate,” he said. “It’s a constitutionally enumerated CIVIL RIGHT.”

With Obama’s orders, gun control activists sense momentum

obama tears(San Francisco Chronicle) – “The firearms-owning community, particularly in California, tends to span the spectrum from far right to far left, economics from poor to Silicon Valley types — and include a lot of immigrants,” DeLuz said. “A lot of folks come here from other countries where they don’t have the rights they do here, like the right to bear arms, and I don’t think they have any interest in giving up those rights.”

California School Districts head down familiar path on debt and taxes

grant_high_school1I have always believed that if voters are going to be allowed to selectively choose to tax a specific segment of our community, that vote should require a supermajority. In the case of school bonds, that used to be the case. Not any longer.

In a recent Sacramento Bee commentary, Ed Ring points out how a change in the voter thresh-hold has opened the door to the potential abuse of taxpayers:

Every few years in November, moviegoers are treated to another James Bond film filled with deception, mystery and mayhem. Judging by the previews, the upcoming installment, “Spectre,” will be no exception. But as more voters are learning, Agent 007 isn’t the only Bond to wreak havoc during election season. In California, education bonds have buried taxpayers in $200 billion of debt to bondholders through 2055.

Now, a report from the California Policy Center explains the consequences of this bond debt and reveals the playbook used to pass these dangerous schemes. Like a rigged game of high-stakes poker, taxpayers may have a seat at the table, but for years haven’t stood a chance against the politicians, construction companies and investors colluding for political and financial gain. By shining a light on this vested interest problem, citing cautionary tales and outlining recommendations for reform, this report offers Californians the tools to fight back.

If your district has proven to your voters to be fiscally responsible and present a solid plan as to how the bond money will be spent, voters will approve the bond. In Robla, we passed our first bond in over 23 years with over 72% voter support. So, it can be done.

In fact, prior to Prop. 39 more than half of all school bond measures passed. As pointed out in this article, today 80 percent of all school bonds are approved. And I think we can all agree that not all of those bond proposals were worthy of passage.

In 2000, passage of Proposition 39 ushered in a new era of borrowing. The measure lowered the required threshold for passage of local education bonds from two-thirds to 55 percent. Since then, 80 percent of these bonds – 911 out of 1,147 proposed – have passed, totaling $110.4 billion in debt. Previously, these bonds had just a 50-50 chance of winning approval.

Let us not forget why the 2/3 vote thresh-hold was passed in the first place: because voters believed that state and local politicians abused their taxing authority. Unfortunately, the old  adage is true, “Those who do not learn from history  are doomed to repeat it.”

With this lower threshold, school districts have become more aggressive in pursuing construction projects. Combined with vague language and suppressed information (for example, projections of assessed property valuation and school enrollment are not easily accessible), voters are served a poisonous bond-measure cocktail, resulting in $200 billion of bond debt for California.

The case of Poway Unified School District is instructive. In 2008, the district asked voters to authorize borrowing $179 million to finance capital improvements, and the measure passed with 63.9 percent support. Today, thanks to controversial debt-financing practices that resulted in ballooning interest, property owners face $1.27 billion in debt service through 2051 – all thanks to a $179 million bond measure that garnered less than two-thirds support. Although district voters held school board members accountable for their actions, the burden on taxpayers cannot be undone.

Elsewhere, districts have claimed that Proposition 39’s ambiguous language gives them free rein to spend construction bond dollars. The Los Angeles Unified School District’s failed technology program provides a recent example. The LAUSD purchased iPads with proceeds from several construction bonds approved before the gadgets were even invented, leaving future generations on the hook for technology that may not even be around for them.

So, note to my fellow school board members: Let us not go down that path again. Voters have proven once that they are more than willing to take our authority away as we prove to be untrustworthy. And sadly, the true losers will be our kids.
