The August 31, 2016 teleconference between numerous sports writers and the men’s football head coaches for Southeastern Conference (SEC) universities should have been about, well, football. Maybe even the upcoming season opener, or how they’ve improved their respective teams over the off season.
Instead, the topic that made headlines was gun control and whether or not the coaches allowed their student-athlete players to own or carry guns.Read more
Without the help of law enforcement unions, SB 707 probably would not have become law.
In the second video in our SB 707 series, you’ll watch the union lobbyists telling lawmakers it’s okay to take away your rights… as long as their members’ rights are preserved.
As Craig DeLuz details:
We literally watched them say, well, if you will preserve our Second Amendment rights, then we’ll let you take everyone else’s Second Amendment rights.
The saddest part is, if law enforcement [unions] had stood with everyday citizens on a number of these measures, they would have never become law.
We communicate with rank-and-file officers all the time, and the vast majority of them are supportive of the Second Amendment, not just for themselves, but for everyday citizens.
They’re shocked that the organizations that claim to represent them at the State Capitol are actually opposing them on an issue that is very near and dear to them.
In part 3 of the series, Craig will explain why it was necessary to take legal action.
Watch the first video here.
Jordan Gallinger is the kind of guy you'd want to have at your child's school if the s*** ever hit the fan.
He's a Marine Corps veteran who served in Afghanistan and qualified as an expert marksman. He also possesses a CCW issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
But since SB 707 went into effect on January 1, 2016, he can no longer carry his handgun on school grounds. Gallinger and other CCW holders - including victims of domestic violence and stalking, prosecutors, judges, and public defenders - must now leave their weapons at home.
Unless they're a part of a special class of people who are exempted from the law.
This is blatantly discriminatory, and a clear violation of civil rights.
Firearms Policy Foundation (in conjunction with other gun-rights organizations) filed a federal civil rights lawsuit, Garcia vs. Harris, challenging SB 707.
In this video, Craig DeLuz, an individual plaintiff in the case and Director of Legislative and Public Affairs for Firearms Policy Coalition, explains the problems with the law.
California politicians are vigorously anti-gun. So how was one group able to get an exemption to a gun-free school zone law? In Part 2 of our SB707 video series, Craig will explain. Stay tuned!
Kansas State University officials have submitted a new proposed weapons policy to the Kansas Board of Regents which will allow concealed weapons on campus beginning in July 2017, when the university's exemption to a current law expires. As is the case at Emporia State University, reactions are mixed on campus.Read more
