Washington State Infringes on Right to Keep and Bear Arms With New Law

(THE NEW AMERICAN) – When California recently passed a similar infringement on gun rights of adults under 21, Craig DeLuz of the Firearms Policy Coalition was equally indignant. “Governor Brown just told millions of people under 21 that they can fight and die for our state and country with machine guns, but they can’t buy a gun for self-defense in their homes. That’s nuts.”

California Gov.-Elect Gavin Newsom Repeats Call To Ban High-Capacity Gun Magazines

(CAPITOL PUBLIC RADIO) – Craig DeLuz, a spokesman for the Cal Guns Foundation, said efforts to ban magazines over 10 rounds erode Second Amendment rights.

“Once you get to a point where you allow them to ban one item, or you allow them to ban multiple items – it never stops,” DeLuz told Capital Public Radio. “Every time there is a shooting or a tragedy, they find another reason to ban something else.”

(KCRA) – “It is very dangerous when you go after someone’s liberty for some perceived security,” said Craig DeLuz, with the Firearm Policy Coalition. “We all want to do what we can to make sure we keep firearms out of the hands of individuals who can potentially be a danger to themselves or others. But in any case, we must always be careful of violating civil liberties.”

Bill Would Prohibit Gun Buyback Giftcards from Retailers that Sell Guns, Ammo

(FOX 40) – “It is an utter waste of time because they don’t want to do what they really need to do and that is go after criminals and go after people who are actually committing crimes,” DeLuz said.

“In a rush to do something to stop gun violence, people think that doing anything is the same as doing something,” he said.

Revelation of gun ban for Tehama County shooter revives enforcement criticisms

(EAST BAY TIMES) – “If law enforcement had the ability to do that, why didn’t they?” DeLuz said, referring to the confiscation of Neal’s weapons. “We have some of the strictest gun laws in the country, and this still occurs.”

He added: “This goes to show that the only people affected by these laws are the law-abiding. There was a failure of the government to enforce those laws, and yet the answer folks keep coming up with is that we need more gun laws.”

Brown OKs open-carry gun restriction, vetoes other gun bill

(KCRA) – Firearms Policy Coalition spokesman Craig DeLuz said the bill (AB 7) is another infringement on law-abiding gun owners.

“How will law-abiding Californians who aren’t in a pro-carry county or political donors of a sheriff exercise their constitutionally-enumerated right to bear arms?” he asked in a statement. DeLuz suggested the ban will be overturned if opponents challenge it in court.

Feinstein moves to close automatic-rifles loophole in wake of Las Vegas massacre

(SACRAMENTO BEE) – Craig DeLuz, a spokesman for the Sacramento-based Firearms Policy Association, a gun rights group, declined to weigh in on the legality of the device, but characterized any legislation proposed in the wake of a shooting as “opportunistic” and suggested Feinstein is politically motivated.

“Maybe before we start coming up with a solution, we ought to give investigators time to get all the information needed to determine if there is a problem,” DeLuz said in an interview. “The senator wants to ban all semi-automatic rifles. We’re opposed to banning the most-commonly owned firearms in the entire country.”

California adopted some of the toughest gun control laws in country after multiple mass shootings

(LA TIMES) – “Gavin Newsom and Kevin de León are nothing more than opportunistic politicians who prey on tragedies for headlines, so it’s not surprising that they would try to rush to promote gun control before the police have finished their investigation,” DeLuz said. “They treat anti-gun laws as magic talismans that will ward off evil. It hasn’t worked in California and it won’t work in other states.”

Pro-gun foe sworn in as California attorney general

xavir-becerra-confirmation(GUNS.COM) – “He’s made it clear that he sees the Second Amendment as a second-class right, not worthy of the same deference as other civil rights,” Craig J. DeLuz, director of communications with the Firearms Policy Coalition, told in an email Tuesday. “He’s also committed to working with those of us who disagree with him on gun rights to ensure transparency and accountability in California’s Department of Justice.

Craig DeLuz – It’s About Civil Rights (Video)

(MODESTO BEE) – Calling gun ownership a fundamental, constitutional, inalienable right, DeLuz, who also is an actor and media commentator in the Sacramento area, also fired up the audience. “I don’t need you to sit there and tell me you don’t know why I need a 30-round magazine,” he said. “… It doesn’t matter if you don’t see a need for me to own more than one gun. … My fundamental right to be able to defend myself and my family has nothing to do with what you believe I need.”

He later added, “When we run for office and go to serve the public, we swear an oath to defend this nation from enemies foreign and domestic, and that is up to and including a tyrannical government. Our founders got that, that’s the reason why they put (the Second Amendment) there.”

UC Davis begins nation’s 1st gun violence research center (Video)

(KCRA) – “We are not against research at all, but research has to be objective,” DeLuz said. “Treating firearms or firearm violence like a disease is completely wrong because it removes the component of human behavior.”

DeLuz fears the research will become a slippery slope to more gun control legislation.

“From the very beginning, it’s been about fabricating statistics to support their already predetermined conclusion, which was increasing laws and gun control,” DeLuz said. “All that it’s going to do is disarm the good guys.”
