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.”

Craig DeLuz Sets The Tone in Debate Over Skinners Fatally Flawed AB 48 (Video)

Yesterday, several anti-gun measures were heard in the California State Assembly’s Public Safety Committee.

Cal-FFL’s Legislative Advocate, Craig DeLuz set the tone as he pointed out one of the many flaws in Assembly member Nancy Skinner’s AB 48.

KGO-TV out of San Francisco aired a report that focused on the issue that AB 48 would turn parents or scout leaders into criminals for providing their kids ammunition while teaching them how to safely use firearms.

“I take my daughter to the firing range to teach her how to use our legally-owned firearm and by handing her a magazine with ammunition in it, I am now in violation of the law, and she is now in violation of the law,” said Craig DeLuz from the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees.

The Sacramento Bee reported on an exchange between DeLuz and Skinner regarding the possibility of gun rights groups supporting her measure.

Skinner asked if the industry associations would support or be neutral on her bill if she amended it to satisfy those concerns.

DeLuz responded by saying he has a 10-page list of deficiencies in the measure.

Despite excellent arguments made by gun rights advocates and the member’s stunning inability to address simple questions on the bill, AB 48 would eventually pass out of the committee on a party-line vote.

AB 48 will next be heard in Assembly Appropriations Committee.

After considering the letter of opposition sent by The Calguns Foundation and California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees, the City of South San Francisco prudently rejected an outrageous gun control measure that would have banned hollow point ammunition and subjected gun owners to serious privacy risks. The ordinance was backed by anti-gun San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, who is working to have other Bay Area cities to adopt the highly-flawed ordinance that his city did earlier in March.
