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. We look forward to holding him to that commitment.”

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.”

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.
