Everytown Employee Outs ‘Disturbing’ Campaign Tactics

There is no doubt that so called “Everytown for gun safety” is Michael Bloomberg styled astroturf. An anti-gun effort that comes from the top down. A case in point is the $20 million spend to pass Question 1 in Nevada. Now there’s a journalist, claiming he has an email from a former Everytown employee, outing questionable tactics.

Former Everytown Employee Claims Anti-Gun Group Uses ‘Disturbing’ Campaign Tactics

The emails describe how Everytown strategically chooses rural areas where it can hire employees at low wages and purchase a greater number of advertisements. The group hires “field staffs” to appear grassroots-driven, but the real backing comes from “political elites” and “billionaires.”

It’s never grass roots when the effort comes from billionaires.

CA DOJ Willfully Disclosed Firearm Instructor Private Data

The California Department of Justice, released the private data of firearm safety instructors, to an NPR reporter. According to the California Rifle and Pistol Association, the private information was disclosed as as result of the DOJ’s response, to a Public Records Act request by Aaron Mendelson, a reporter for Southern California Public Radio. The DOJ has told Mendelson to destroy the info and not to share the information.

CA DOJ’S WILLFUL DISCLOSURE OF FIREARM SAFETY INSTRUCTORS’ PRIVATE INFORMATION WAS PROMPTED BY A LOCAL NPR REPORTER

He asked DOJ to provide “[a]ll data on Firearm Safety Certifications kept by the California Department of Justice,” including the “name, date, location, instructor and so on.” Mendelson also sought “any training materials instructors receive informing them how to submit Firearm Safety Certifications.” Notably, Mendelson himself understood and acknowledged that due to the breadth of information he was requesting about instructors, some of the information may be protected by privacy laws and therefore require redaction. In fact, he indicated that he fully expected the information provided to him by DOJ to include redacted material, and requested that he merely be notified of the legal justification for the expected redactions DOJ would make.

CRPA Submits Pre-Litigation Demand Opposing Gun Ban Regs

The California DOJ is attempting to skirt regulations, in regard to new “Bullet Button Assault Weapons” regulation, by ignoring requirements to allow public comment and Office of Administrative Law review. Claiming that the law itself exempts such requirements. A case of government screwing over the people with the people’s own tax dollars if you’ve ever seen it.

BREAKING: CRPA and NRA Submit Pre-Litigation Demand Letter Opposing DOJ’s “Bullet Button Assault Weapon” Regulations

Contrary to the limits of the OAL exemption contained in the statute itself, the regulations submitted by DOJ to OAL go far beyond what is necessary for the registration process. The regulations actually read like a wish list from the gun ban lobby that DOJ is attempting to shoehorn into the limited exception to the regulatory adoption process actually contained in the law. Included in the regulations DOJ submitted are over 40 new definitions, excessive personal information requirements for registering a firearm, requirements that individuals provide information on where they acquired their firearms, requirements that individuals provide DOJ with photos of their firearms, requirements for serializing firearms built from 80% receivers, expansion of the “assault weapon” definition to bullet-button equipped shotguns, and restrictions on removing the “bullet-button” once the firearm is registered as an “assault weapon.”

This is an example of how sinister California legislators are, when they impose a “limited exception,” in order to subvert the Constitution.

Washington Attorney General Unveils “Assault Weapon” Ban

It didn’t take long after the recent shooting in Ft. Lauderdale, for the gun prohibition Washington state attorney general, to push for banning a whole class of firearms. So called “assault weapons.”

You can bet Bob Ferguson is attempting a ban while he believes emotions are running high. Even when such firearms were not used in the high profile shooting. Nevermind the bastions of gun control, cities like Chicago and Seattle, that are rife with murder. Where leftist inspired gun control is a complete and utter failure. The very reason we have a Second Amendment.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson proposed legislation on Monday that would ban the sale of assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines in Washington.

Those who do not respect individual rights, have no compunction about doing what they can, to marginalize and endanger citizens all for their twisted agenda.

Dwindling Amount Of Pistols Left For Sale In California

The gun prohibitionists are in the process of having their way in California. Foisting disarmament and claiming that it’s about safety. When what it’s really about, is a leftist obsession with obliterating, the right to keep and bear arms.

Whenever there is high crime to comment about, you rarely see the anti-gun mouthpieces, address the elephant in the room. The criminals who seem to act with impunity, and who are emboldened by Democrats, who would rather blame inanimate objects. Thus placing the public in greater peril.

The Calguns Foundation has laid out some interesting statistics, gained from their request for roster of “not unsafe” handguns certified for sale, data from the CA DOJ. Half of the handguns allowed for sale are simply aesthetic variations of the same gun. With the new “micro-stamping” law(AB 1471) in place, there will be little if any, new guns on the list because such technology does not commercially exist.

Some will drop, simply because the state considers slight changes in manufacturing improvements, as triggering a requirement that existing approved guns be treated as a whole new model. Where they of course fail, the approval process to be allowed for sale, because they don’t meet the new requirements.

CA DOJ Says Bullet Buttons To Stay On Registered Rifles

The California Department of Justice has filed with the Office of Administrative Law for the new gun ban regulations. This is what they’re supposed to do, instead of trying to force “emergency” regulations, when it’s not. The state of California, wants registered bullet button “assault weapons,” to remain in that configuration.

See the Firearms Policy Coalition:

Update 5 – 12/30/16 – Photos will be required for AW registrations through CFARS: “Clear digital photos of firearms listed on the application. One photo shall depict the bullet-button style magazine release installed on the firearm. One photo shall depict the firearm from the end of the barrel to the end of the stock if it is a long-gun or the point furthest from the end of the barrel if it is a pistol. The other two photos shall show the left side of the receiver/frame and right side of the receiver/frame. These locations are typically where firearms are marked when manufacturing is complete. At the discretion of the Department the last two photos shall be substituted for photos of identification markings at some other locations on the firearm.”

CA DOJ Backs Down From Shoving “Emergency” Regs…

The California Department of Justice has decided to forgo it’s “emergency” regulations, shoving the 10+ round magazine ban down citizen throats, without proper input from said citizens. Oh, it’s still coming, as part of Gavin Newsom’s unconstitutional mandate, to “turn them all in” or else.

From a CRPA email:

On Thursday, December 29, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) backed down from its proposed “emergency” regulations on large-capacity magazines, asking the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) to withdraw them from consideration.

Extreme Gun Control In Europe Not Working

The lorry that was used to murder 12 people and injure many others, at a Berlin Christmas market, was basically hijacked by a pistol wielding Islamic jihadist. In a nation where those in the age group of the terrorist, responsible for the attack, are required to take a psychological exam in order to qualify for a gun permit.

Germany has some of the world’s strictest guns laws, but this attack proves that gun prohibition, directed at the law abiding will not stop those with ill intent. Because criminals and terrorists have no intention of following laws. Why the founders of the United States thought to include a Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

Thankfully, Italian police stopped this particular terrorist cold: CONFIRMED: Berlin Attack Suspect Shot Dead in Milan
