“In a recent letter to California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown, the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA) expressed concern over the “hasty implementation” of firearms microstamping in California and called for further in-depth study of the technology before it is implemented by law in California …”
Shouldn’t you have thought about this before passing this law?
Dick Nelson on Jan. 12, “Sportsmen need to show their strength.” This column shows why Dick is far and away the best outdoor writer in the state. Not because he’s necessarily the best wordsmith, but because he is the most honest and open of the bunch and tells it like it is.
Urban Elephants reports that Congressman Pete King has been making noise again about running for Senate against Kirsten Gillibrand this fall. King has been a C/D rated by NRA over the past few election cycles so I have low expectations from him on gun issues.
He did get in a good shot at Michael Jackson and the media, though.
Some more press (and self-promotion) for the Jan. 12 lobby day at the LOB/CAP in today’s Post-Star, “Sportsmen prepare for meetings at Capitol.” There are buses from at least nine locations going there that I’m aware of.
“… He also said he would take on the national issue of immigration reform similar to the way he focused on gun control in his second term. The mayor established the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which has pushed its agenda on Capitol Hill and in local political races throughout the nation …”
Does that means he’s going to change the name to Mayors Against Illegal Guns and For Illegal Immigration?
CD-19:F rated incumbent John Hall v. Nan Hayworth. Hall accepted campaign money from the Brady’s but wasn’t actively promoting antigun legislation the last time I checked. Hayworth struck me as being a RINO but does not have any position statement on her campaign website about guns.
CD-29:C rated incumbent Eric Massa v. Tom Reed. Not sure what Massa did to earn his last NRA rating. He seemed concerned about being perceived as being pro-gun in the past. Reed is the Mayor of Corning, but his position on guns is unknown. He isn’t a member of MAIG.
