Beginning July 1, any gun owner who owns magazines that can hold over 10 rounds is supposed to give them up. They either have to destroy them, give them to police, give them to gun shops, or sell them out of state. So far, no one has seemed to comply and sheriffs are saying they aren’t planning on seeking out gun owners and checking their magazines.

OK. Then what the hell is the point? No one is actually complying and no one intends to check to see if the magazines people have comply with the law. Then why bother?
How do you know if people destroyed the magazines or sold them out of state anyway? If they were checking with people, couldn’t they just say they beat the magazines to death and threw them away? Maybe they lost them in a horrible boating accident? How can you prove they did or did not?
This piece of legislation is beyond useless. What a waste of tax payer dollars. And then people wonder why the taxes in California are so high and why they are always broke. This is why.
According to this, California has blocked all official travel to Alabama, Kentucky, South Dakota, and Texas over what they deem to be anti-LGBTEFROGFJGERHGJXBWYSFQWEMGPTYGHSMVUAE$FUT laws.
Apparently, most of the laws in place are to ensure people and organizations aren’t forced to violate their religious beliefs. No actual rights have been taken from the LGBT community (if there had been, I wouldn’t support that), mind you. It’s just that some organizations won’t be forced to do things like adopt out children to LGBT families if it violates the religious affiliation of the organization.
I’m perfectly OK with the California travel ban. I figure the less people leaving California and entering states like Texas, the better. Heck, ban all travel from California all together! Build a wall! Never leave the state again! I’d even back using tax payer dollars to build a retaining wall to keep them in there! At least the southern half. I have a soft spot for the folks in the northern Cali area.
Mind you, the state of California is against Trump’s travel ban for the safety of American citizens, including the LGBT community.
“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them … They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and they’re following suit,” he said. Brown was speaking in Orange County, defending State Assembly newcomer Josh Newman (D-Fullerton), who is facing a recall effort after voting for Brown’s new transportation taxes in April.
Kira Davis, commenting at RedState, remarks:
The 1,000,000 citizens in Los Angeles county alone who collect food stamps provided by taxpayers are not freeloaders. The millions of illegal immigrants being harbored in California’s sanctuary cities to the cost of taxpayers are not freeloaders. Illegal immigrants being provided “free” legal help by the state on the backs of taxpayers are not freeloaders. The bloodsuckers in the Sacramento legislature who get paid $178 a day in per diem funds on top of their bloated salaries just for walking in the door to their job every day are not freeloaders.
No, you – the burdened, law-abiding taxpayer are the freeloader for simply asking the government of California be more fiscally responsible with the money they already have instead of stealing more of your money without your consent to pay for programs that are already funded but have been raided for pet projects and personal enrichment.

Remember, kids: the American tax payer is a freeloader in California. But illegal aliens are “dreamers!”
At least now you know where you stand. But keep voting him and the democrats back into office, California.
The stunning victory of the “Brexit” campaign last week, which heralds the departure of Britain from the European Union, has excited movements for national sovereignty across Europe — and a secessionist movement in California as well.
Louis Marinelli, who leads the “Yes California” movement, told Newsweek that Brexit and the Scottish independence movement both point the way forward for a state that only gets 94 cents on the dollar back from Washington for its federal taxes.
“This is the first Western secessionist movement that worked, and I think that is going to be very profound,” Marinelli told Newsweek. “Are you going to say to people in the freest country in the world (you) don’t have the right to self-determination?”
Others are worried about what Brexit might mean for the California economy. The Los Angeles Times, for example, notes that Britain is second only to China in terms of foreign visitors to the Golden State, and has close economic ties to California, including heavy investments in film and tech.

Two dozen California companies have said they are tired of the business-bashing in Sacramento, along with the high taxes — and they are now threatening to leave the state.
The day after Proposition 30 passed, triggering $6 billion in new annual taxes, Arizona launched a campaign to lure some of California’s top companies.
KCRA 3 has learned that 24 chief executives are flying to Phoenix, Ariz., to explore the land of lower taxes and a much friendlier business environment.
“We can deliver the mayors, we can deliver the CEOs, we can deliver the legislative support,” said Barry Broome, president of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.
Broome launched his campaign to recruit California CEOs one day after voters in the Golden State approved Prop 30 last November, and the campaign is working.
Broome said 24 CEOs already have committed to leaving California.
“You start sending the wrong message to those folks and they start voting with their feet,” Broome said.

To recap… businesses are leaving NC for not being liberal… and leaving California for being liberal. Yep.
The employees changed computer records to falsely show that drivers had passed written and behind-the-wheel tests after they were bribed by the owners of three truck-driving schools between June 2011 and March 2015, according to court documents.
“Individuals who use their positions to obtain commercial drivers’ licenses for unskilled and untested drivers jeopardize our nation’s security and safety. Allowing unqualified drivers to operate heavy commercial trucks on our highways is honestly quite chilling,” said Carol Webster, acting assistant special agent in charge of the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations office in Sacramento.
Authorities say that up to 23 traffic accidents could be related to the fraud, though luckily there were no fatalities.
According to Fox, this case is the latest in a series of bribery incidents involving the California DMV in recent years. In 2013, a similar scheme was uncovered in Fresno that involved 15 people and resulted in a sentence of more than five years in federal prison for the DMV ringleader. Emma Klem could face similar jail time.
The state’s chief DMV investigator, Frank Alvarez, told reporters that his department is considering additional safeguards to prevent employees from altering computer records and is attempting to better screen its 10,000 employees.
