Now it’s law enforcement that has nowhere to hide, and that may or may not be a good thing.

A Dutch company has introduced a detection system that can alert drivers if a police officer or other emergency services official is using a two-way radio nearby.

Blu Eye monitors frequencies used by the encrypted TETRA encrypted communications networks used by government agencies in Europe. It doesn’t allow the user to listen in to transmissions, which is illegal and would require advanced decryption capabilities, but can detect a radio in operation up to one kilometer away.

Even if a message isn’t being sent, these radios send pulses out to the network every four seconds and Blu Eye can also pick these up, according to The Sunday Times. A dashboard-mounted monitor uses lights and sounds to alert the driver to the proximity of the source, similar to a radar detector interface.

The company behind it, Target Automotive, says it’s meant to be used as safety device, giving early warning that an emergency vehicle is approaching so drivers can move out of the way, while reminding them to monitor their behavior behind the wheel. But critics see it as a likely tool for intentional scofflaws.

“As it does not distinguish between a police car, ambulance or fire engine responding to an emergency or one that is simply driving under non-blue-light conditions, this particular device is sadly just as likely to be bought by a minority of motorists who wish to evade being caught behaving illegally,” David Bizley, the Royal Automobile Club’s chief engineer, told The Sunday Times.

Blu Eye sells for $1,600 in the U.K., and is not yet available in the United States. However, Target Managing Director Jan Rijks tells FoxNews.com that a version is in the works that is compatible with the P25 protocol used by U.S. emergency services and could be on sale as early as next year.

Overall, 82% of California voters agreed that local police have a tough job and for the most part do it well

By Michael Finnegan

Los Angeles Times

A solid majority of California voters believes local police have a tough job and do it well, but nearly a third say law enforcement targets minorities unfairly, according to a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll.

The survey found attitudes toward police split along racial and ethnic lines: Blacks, Latinos and Asians were substantially more likely than whites to say that police are too aggressive or treat whites better than others.

The contrasting views reflect persistent tension between law enforcement and minority communities in California — even decades after police clashes with African Americans sparked the 1965 and 1992 riots in Los Angeles.

Black voters, the poll found, were consistently most critical of police, followed by Latinos and Asians, while whites had the most favorable views of law enforcement. Two-thirds of blacks said it was true that police target minorities unfairly; less than a quarter of whites agreed.

Poll respondent Ralph Berry, an African American who lives in Bellflower, said in a follow-up interview that young black men were especially susceptible to unwarranted scrutiny by police. Typical, he said, was the time years ago when an officer followed him around the block and checked his plates as he searched for a parking spot in downtown Long Beach.

“You’re looked at as suspect, regardless of where you’re at or what you’re doing,” said Berry, now 55. “It’s automatically assumed the worst.”

John Bridges, a 22-year-old white Marine who grew up outside Modesto and now lives at Camp Pendleton, said he believes police treat every group the same.

“I’ve never had a bad experience with cops,” Bridges said.

The survey came weeks after the fatal police shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., triggered protests and civil rights investigations by the U.S. Justice Department. The use of heavy military equipment by the mostly white police force in confronting protesters in the predominantly black suburb of St. Louis has drawn widespread condemnation.

In South Los Angeles, the fatal police shooting last month of Ezell Ford Jr., a 25-year-old black man, has threatened to erode the credibility and goodwill that the LAPD has worked hard to build over the last decade. On Friday, the shooting of Ford was a key focus of an NAACP conference on police brutality in Exposition Park.

Despite its evidence of lingering concerns, the poll showed that police overall are popular in an era marked by steadily declining crime and efforts by police agencies to engage with communities disproportionately affected by crime.

Overall, 82% of California voters agreed that local police have a tough job and for the most part do it well. Yet even on that question, there was at least some racial divide: 88% of whites thought it was true, while 74% of blacks, 71% of Latinos and 73% of Asians agreed.

There also was a divergence of views on the question of engagement, a major focus for police in Los Angeles and other cities. Among whites, 81% agreed that police were willing to engage, but only 55% of blacks, 68% of Latinos and 69% of Asians agreed.

A bigger split emerged over the statement that local police were ineffective, too slow to respond to calls and nowhere to be found in an emergency. Nearly half of African Americans agreed, while 40% of Latinos, 24% of Asians and 18% of whites thought it was true.

Historian Josh Sides, author of “L.A. City Limits: African American Los Angeles from the Great Depression to the Present,” said the fact that even more blacks didn’t see police as ineffective showed progress in easing friction between police and that community.

“I can say unequivocally there’s been a significant improvement in police relations with African Americans,” he said.

Nonetheless, 42% of black voters said that local police were too aggressive and more of a threat to people than anything else; 28% of Latinos, 21% of Asians and 11% of whites agreed.

Most of the time, however, Californians were describing aggression that occurred at some remove.

Overall, the poll found 14% of California voters recalled an occasion in the last year when they felt police treated them unfairly; for blacks, it was 26%; Latinos, 20%; whites, 12%; and Asians, 11%. But nearly two-thirds of Californians knew of a case somewhere in the United States of police treating people unfairly.

California voters also were divided on whether police were tougher on blacks, Latinos, Asians or whites, or treated all groups equally. Overall, 40% said police treated everyone the same, 33% said they were tougher on blacks, and 10% said they were tougher on Latinos. (Almost no one felt police were tougher on whites or Asians.)

But substantial shares of whites, blacks and Asians agreed that if any group was unfairly targeted, it was blacks: 33% of whites thought so, as did 61% of blacks and 51% of Asians.

Latinos were divided, with 28% saying police were tougher on them, 24% saying they were tougher on blacks, and 34% saying they treat all groups the same. Just 19% of blacks believed police treated everyone the same, with 31% of Asians and 44% of whites agreeing.

Poll respondent Antonio Sosa of Mar Vista, a 48-year-old digital marketing executive, said his interactions with police on the Westside were all positive, but that racial profiling was clearly a nationwide problem.

“There’s an assumption of guilt or nefarious intention simply by the color of their skin, or the address where people live,” he said.

But Jennifer Valladao of Union City in the Bay Area, a white 30-year-old research associate for a pharmaceutical company, said racial profiling was limited to “a few bad apples,” and was not a systemic problem that police need to fix.

“A lot of it comes down to how you carry yourself,” she said. “If you treat them with respect, they’ll treat you with respect. If you start acting shifty around a police officer, they’re going to take notice.”

The survey of 1,507 registered California voters on behalf of USC’s Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and The Times was conducted by telephone from Sept. 2 through 8. The margin of error for the poll — conducted by the Democratic group Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and American Viewpoint, a Republican firm — is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points overall and larger for all subgroups.

The FBI and CDC are investigating an attack on a federal air marshal who was injected with a syringe full of an unknown substance inside the Lagos, Nigeria airport on Sunday, according to a Situational Awareness notice obtained by FoxNews.com.

A federal air marshal reported being attacked by a subject while on the public side of the Lagos Airport on Sunday, according to an alert from TSA’s Transportation Security Operations Center distributed throughout the agency on Monday afternoon.

It appeared to be an isolated incident, the alert says.

“The [air marshal] reported that the subject stuck him with a syringe and it is believed he was injected with an unknown substance,” the alert says.

The State Department responded to the airport to assist the air marshal and his team.

“After consultation with the consulate and physicians, the [federal air marshal] was given precautionary medication,” according to the alert.

The air marshal and the rest of his team–along with the syringe used in the attack– were immediately flown out of Nigeria and back to the U.S.

The syringe also was transported back to the U.S. for testing.

An FBI spokesman said Monday night, “out of an abundance of caution, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted an on-scene screening of the victim when United Flight 143 landed in Houston early Monday morning. The victim did not exhibit any signs of illness during the flight and was transported to a hospital upon landing for further testing. None of the testing conducted has indicated a danger to other passengers.”

The CDC and the FBI are involved and have opened investigations, the alert states.

The TSA, State Department and CDC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“This investigation is still in the preliminary stage and early indications are limited to a criminal nexus.”

Support Grows for Shot Calif. Officer

Support Grows for Shot Calif. Officer

An outpouring of community support for wounded San Bernardino police Officer Gabriel Garcia continued Saturday as two businesses — Dairy Queen and Queen Bean Caffe — in his hometown of Yucaipa donated a portion of proceeds during a four-hour window to help his family. A fundraiser also was held in Rancho Cucamonga.

When the Yucaipa businesses — which are owned by Josh and Jennifer Conroy — announced the benefit, an outpouring of support ensued.

“We had people who came out of nowhere who wanted to donate something to the raffle,” said DQ manager Meghan Nielson. “There’s just a sense of community in a time of need, and it’s amazing to see people come out and support us.”

Nielson organized the effort after learning of the incident that left Garcia, 31, critically wounded in the early morning hours of Aug. 22 when he and his trainee faced a heavily armed gunman at 19th Street and Garner Avenue in San Bernardino.

Garcia’s condition remained unchanged Saturday and he was still in a medically induced coma at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton after being shot in the head during a gunbattle.

The rookie police officer being trained by Garcia returned fire, killing the gunman, identified as 38-year-old Alex David Alvarado. The trainee’s identity has not been released. He was not injured.

On Saturday, beginning at 5 p.m., a steady stream of customers began flooding the two Yucaipa businesses. As they received change from their orders, coins were added to a blue donation box with Garcia’s photo.

Fifteen percent of proceeds made from orders were donated to the cause Saturday, Nielsen said. One hundred percent of proceeds made from a raffle, which included a handmade quilt and gift cards, were added to the pool.

Members of several law enforcement agencies dropped off donations, Nielsen said. Among the agencies: the Redlands, Ontario and Rialto police departments.

“The men and women of the police force are always protective of us, and this (effort) is showing we have their back, too,” said Jessica Stanley, kitchen manager for Queen Bean Caffe.

An earlier fundraising effort Saturday morning at LoanMart Field, home of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes minor league baseball team, brought in nearly $2,000 to the Garcia family.

The benefit — a softball tournament — featured members of various California law enforcement agencies and was hosted by Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Ben Zaredini.

Additional fundraising efforts are in the works, including a car wash planned for Saturday at Juan Pollo, 1258 W. Fifth St., San Bernardino. The event is being sponsored by the La Placita Neighborhood Associations and the Mount Vernon Neighborhood Watch.

The Yucaipa Dairy Queen and Queen Bean Caffe are no strangers to giving back.

When San Bernardino County sheriff’s Detective Jeremiah MacKay was killed in February 2013 during a shootout with the fugitive ex-Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner, both establishments held a similar fundraising effort.

Another was held for Yucaipa High School student Adam Downer days after he was struck by a drunken driver while taking out trash cans in front of his home on June 7, 2013. Adam survived his injuries with physical therapy and support from his family.

Proceeds from both efforts went toward medical expenses and to help each family, Nielsen said.

Donations to benefit the Garcia family can be sent via mail to the San Bernardino Police Officers Foundation, c/o Gabriel Garcia, P.O. Box 2967, San Bernardino, CA 92405.

Reagan National Airport says no to public service ads deemed OK at 5 other airports

PCS-Airport-AdProject ChildSafe, run by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, is the firearms industry’s longstanding program to promote safe firearms storage. Since 2003, Project ChildSafe has partnered with law enforcement agencies in all 50 states to distribute more than 36 million safety kits, including cable-style locks. Now funded solely by the firearms industry and charitable donations from the public, the program in its early days was backed by a federal grant.

Project ChildSafe is not all that controversial. Even as anti-gun organizations appropriate the term “gun safety” for their own purposes, they have had trouble finding fault with what is a true gun safety program and are largely silent about it. As this was being written, we received word that the State of Utah has selected Project ChildSafe to provide some 30,000 of our kits per year for a three-to-four year program to groups that teach gun safety, health care providers and school districts.

Project ChildSafe Works. So in another way to reach out and inform the public, this year and next, travelers through some of our nation’s airports either have or will be seeing electronic and fixed advertising to promote the Project ChildSafe “Own It? Respect it. Secure it.” message. That is, travelers through all airports except for Reagan National Airport serving Washington. D.C. will be seeing these public service ads.

Five other airports have accepted or already run the ads – Hartford-Springfield, Las Vegas, Little Rock, Providence and St. Louis. But not Reagan National. Here, in the airport serving the nation’s capital, what had been routine purchasing of ad space for public service advertising ran into, you guessed it, politics. Said a knowledgeable person who tried to help this process along,   “DC is a very political market and this is not something they want to be involved in. We tried every angle we could but they did not want to accommodate.”

Reagan National is administered by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, whose board is composed of political appointees. Calls to the Authority to even find the right person to talk with were unreturned. Remember, we only set out to buy some airport ads – the same ones five other airports accepted. Are we encountering a lack of transparency or accountability? We have a lot of collective experience with government agencies and it sure looks that way to us. And we’re not the only ones to think so.

The U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee in report language for the Transportation, Treasury, Housing and Urban Development (it’s called TTHUD, in Capitol Hill parlance) noted: “The Committee has continuing concerns about the lack of oversight of the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority (MWAA). A recent investigation by the DOT Inspector General (IG) found a number of cases of questionable sole source contracting practices, a lack of ethical disclosure requirements for board members, and an overall lack of accountability and transparency.”

We are committed to Project ChildSafe. We have a good number of organizations and companies that support us. Congressmen and Senators from both sides of the aisle, mayors and police chiefs have held public events across the country to bring public attention to the important issue of securing firearms in the home. The media cover these events.

So why can’t we run some public service ads for a few days at Reagan Washington National Airport? Why does politics come before safety? That’s only partially a rhetorical question. Not that we really expect an answer, we would still like to know.

“Sons of Guns” star Will Hayden has been arrested again, this time for aggravated rape, according to documents sent to FOX411 by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.

The allegations have prompted the cancellation of his Discovery Channel series.

“Given the serious and horrific nature of the charges against Will Hayden, we have decided to halt further production of ‘Sons of Guns’ and cancel the series,” the network said in a statement.

Hayden is accused of raping a minor “almost daily” since March 2013 and taking her virginity when she was 11 years old. TMZ reports the girl is Hayden’s daughter.

During an interview with detectives, the alleged victim said she did not report the sexual abuse because she was afraid Hayden would hurt her. The most recent abuse of the now-12-year-old girl occurred during July 2014, according to the documents.

 

According to police documents, the alleged victim claims that Hayden told her “don’t tell them nothing because I’m all you got.”

Hayden was booked on Wednesday and his bail is set at $250,000. There was a warrant out for Hayden’s arrest, and The Times-Picayune reports he was apprehended in Livingston as a fugitive from East Baton Rouge.

Discovery Channel’s reality show “Sons of Guns” follows Hayden and his Red Jacket Firearms company, which buys, sells, designs and rebuilds firearms.

The company distanced itself from the reality star on Tuesday, posting a statement on its website.

“Red Jacket Firearms LLC has initiated and received full legal separation as an entity, from William M. Hayden,” the statement read. “With heavy hearts, we will be continuing to operate and ensure the fulfillment of new customer orders, back orders and to provide support to those affected by these new developments.”

Earlier this month, on Aug. 9, Hayden was arrested for molestation of a juvenile and aggravated crimes against nature. He posted his $150,000 bond and was released. At the time, his lawyer told FOX411 the charges were stemmed from a conflict with a fired ex-employee who was seeking revenge.

His lawyer did not respond immediately to a separate request for comment on Wednesday.

Following the initial allegations, his daughter Stephanie Hayden Ford, who appears on the show with her dad, took to her Facebook page to deny reports that the hit series was in trouble.

“Guys the show is NOT cancelled! We so appreciate the outcry of injustice but [it’s] not true, I guess some [people] just need ratings… We are on a hold with filming while my family takes care of a few things. You guys are the best fans ever & we love you so much! Thank u for standing strong with us!”

Discovery channel declined FOX411’s request for comment.

A federal judge in California has struck down a law that requires a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases, but only for current gun owners who have already passed a background check and those who have a permit or certificate of eligibility to own a gun.

Eastern District of California Judge Anthony W. Ishii said Monday that the waiting period provision violates the Second Amendment rights of those who have already been approved to own a gun. This includes those who have previously undergone a background check and own a gun, people with concealed-carry permits and people who have a state certificate of eligibility to own a gun.

First-time gun buyers would still be subject to the waiting period, which Ishii emphasized in his ruling.

“Given the nature of the challenges made, the Court emphasizes that it is expressing no opinion on the constitutionality of the 10-day waiting period in general or as applied to first time California firearms purchasers,” he said.

The Sacramento Bee reports Ishii stayed his ruling for 180 days in order to give California time to change the law.

According to the Sacramento Bee, the law was challenged by two California gun owners and two gun rights groups. In their lawsuit against the Department of Justice and California Attorney General Kamala Harris, they argued that the 10-day waiting period was unconstitutional.

“This is a great win for Second Amendment civil rights and common sense,” Jeff Silvester, one of the gun owners who was a plaintiff in the case, said in a statement. “I couldn’t be happier with how this case turned out.”

The other plaintiff Brandon Combs, who is also the executive director of the Calguns Foundation, also praised the ruling.

“California gun owners are not second-class citizens and the Second Amendment doesn’t protect second class rights,” Combs said. “This decision is an important step towards restoring fundamental individual liberties in the Golden State.”

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, left, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg are seen in this composite image.ThePeoplesSheriff.com/AP

National political donors with deep pockets are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a local Wisconsin sheriff’s race that pits gun control groups against the National Rifle Association.

On Tuesday, voters in Milwaukee County, Wis. will decide whether they’ll givecontroversial Sheriff David Clarke Jr. – a staunch supporter of Second Amendment rights known for his outspoken ads — another term in office or side with his opponent, police lieutenant Chris Moews.

Clarke made headlines last year after he spent money on a radio ad that urged citizens to enroll in firearms classes following budget cuts. He told residents in the 30-second commercial to “point that barrel center mass and pull the trigger” because “911 is not our best option.”

He also said that personal safety is no longer a spectator sport and told citizens, “I need you in the game.”

The primary race is a rematch of the one four years ago in which Clarke beat Moews by six points.

Both candidates are running as Democrats. The winner moves on to the November general election. However, since no Republicans are in that contest, Tuesday’s winner will most likely become the next county sheriff.

This time, Moews is armed with money aimed at taking down the Clarke camp.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg – who through his political group has publicly committed to spending $50 million on gun-control politics in 2014 – has paid $150,000 to air a series of television ads targeting Clarke’s conservative pro-gun policies.

The money from Bloomberg’s Independence USA super PAC is more than what Clarke and Moews have spent on their entire campaigns combined.

Bloomberg spokesman Howard Wolfson told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that he decided to get involved in the sheriff’s race because it allowed him to shape policy on a local level.

“The issue of guns is one that (Bloomberg) cares an awful lot about and there’s a very clear contrast on that issue in this race,” Wolfson told the newspaper.

But Bloomberg isn’t the only person pumping cash into the primary.

The Greater Wisconsin Committee spent $400,000 on its own anti-Clarke ads.

Clarke, who is running as a Democrat but regularly aligns himself with conservative Republicans, spoke at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in April. The NRA, who calls Clarke a “rising national star,” has come to Clarke’s defense, soliciting donations from its members on his behalf and buying online ads for his re-election bid.

“Make no mistake: Sheriff Clarke is fighting the reelection battle of his life right now because he dared to stand on principle by standing up for you, me and the NRA,” Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said.

“Am I big on a person’ right to be able to defend themselves? Yes. You know why? Because it’s a natural right,” Clarke recently told Wisconsin News Radio 620 WTMJ.

His opponent, Moews, has a different take.

“If I have the opportunity to defend myself and my family I will do so to the best of my abilities but I’m certainly also going to call 911 if I have the ability because I need the cavalry to come and help me,” Moews told WTMJ at the same political event.

Firearms Retailers Now Off ‘Operation Choke Point’ Watch List

 

Posted: 04 Aug 2014

 

In a move prompted by NSSF’s work with assistance from the NRA in getting the issue addressed by key members of Congress, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) last week reported that firearms retailers are no longer on a watch list of businesses deemed at higher risk for fraud.  The FDIC’s list was compiled as part of the Department of Justice’s “Operation Choke Point” and has now been withdrawn.

An FDIC spokesman publicly blamed “misunderstandings” and “misinterpretations” and said the agency never meant to prevent banks from conducting transactions or providing services to the types of businesses on its list. Importantly, the agency issued revised guidance that focused on third party payment processors but also declared more broadly that, “It is the FDIC’s policy that insured institutions (banks) that properly manage customer relationships are neither prohibited nor discouraged from providing services to any customer operating in compliance with applicable law.”

As previously reported, NSSF has been providing information to assist U.S. House of Representatives investigations into “Operation Choke Point” and its effects on industry members. Financial Services Oversight Committee staff have told NSSF staff that they will work to ensure the revised FDIC guidance is followed, noting the vast majority of regulatory activity is based around the country, not in Washington, so Congress must continue its ongoing oversight. NSSF will continue to closely monitor and report on developments.

A doctor who was grazed by gunfire from a patient in his office at a suburban hospital on Thursday helped stop him by apparently returning fire with his own weapon and severely injuring him, but not before a caseworker was killed, authorities said.

The patient opened fire after entering the office with the caseworker, District Attorney Jack Whelan said. Witnesses reported hearing yelling before the gunshots.

Several hours after the shooting, investigators had only limited information on what happened inside the closed office but believe the doctor, a psychiatrist, “from all accounts, would have acted in self-defense,” Whelan said.

The doctor, who suffered a graze wound to his head, “faced a situation where his life was in jeopardy,” Whelan said.

Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux said that, “without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives.”

“Without that firearm, this guy (the patient) could have went out in the hallway and just walked down the offices until he ran out of ammunition,” Molineux said.

The dead caseworker was identified only as a 53-year-old woman who had entered the doctor’s office with the patient before the gunfire erupted. Police said they were trying to find relatives to notify.

Two guns were recovered, Whelan said. Authorities said the motive for the shooting was unknown.

The patient, who was critically injured and was taken into custody, was identified as Richard Plotts, an Upper Darby resident in his mid-30s.

The prosecutor said Plotts had been involved in previous incidents with staff, but he did not know their nature. He also said he did not know if that is why the doctor had a gun or if the doctor would have been required to have a permit.

After the door of the office was closed, staff members heard loud arguing inside, opened the door and noticed the patient had a gun, Whelan said. They then closed the door and dialed 911. Gunshots were heard a short time later, just before 2:30 p.m.

After Plotts emerged from the office, another doctor and a caseworker helped wrestle him to the floor of the hallway and grabbed his weapon, Whelan said. By that point he had already been severely wounded from several shots, he said.

“They acted vigilantly. They acted bravely,” Whelan said.

The exchange of gunfire occurred on the third floor of the Wellness Center at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, a 204-bed community teaching hospital just southwest of Philadelphia.

Authorities said there are no surveillance cameras in the doctor’s office or the waiting area outside. They also said the center had no metal detectors.

“Do you evaluate that now … in light of this incident to make sure people are safe, especially in what can be a dangerous environment?” Whelan asked.

Patients waiting in the first-floor lobby reported a tense scene when police arrived and ordered everyone out. Most of the patients were elderly.

“I dozed off, and I heard the cop shouting, ‘Come on, come on, get out!” said Millicent Russell, 73, of Lansdowne, who was waiting for a 3 p.m. appointment. “There were people with walkers and canes and stuff. All these cops were outside running here and there with these guns.”

Last Friday, July 18, Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed into law anti-gun Assembly Bill 1964.  AB 1964 unnecessarily removes existing exemptions for all single-shot pistols, other than those with a break top or bolt-action, from California’s roster of “not unsafe” handguns.  It is unfortunate that this legislation was passed and Governor Brown signed such a law that does not address any legitimate public safety problems and conflicts with well-established constitutional principles.

Criminals are not purchasing single shot handguns from firearms dealers to commit their crimes.  Rather than target criminal behavior, AB 1964 will only impact law-abiding gun owners.  This new law effectively eliminates the only option for Californians to purchase numerous handguns that are commonly owned throughout the rest of the United States.  As the U.S. Supreme Court made clear, the Second Amendment protects firearms that are “typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes.”  District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 624-625.  By improperly expanding California’s ban on common handguns, AB 1964 violates the Second Amendment and will add to the growing list of litigation the state is already facing.

Another point that AB 1964 only affects law-abiding gun owners is that it further reduces handguns available for purchase in California, which is already greatly reduced by the microstamping law taking effect in May of 2013.  As a result of the microstamping law, a large number of handguns were “delisted” and can no longer be sold by retailers in California.  And the state Department of Justice (DOJ) Newly Added Firearms list has been blank since May 2013, only on June 13 of THIS year were twenty-five new model handguns added to the list.  To view the list of newly added handguns click here.  To view more information on the microstamping fiasco, please click here.

The NRA understands the need to fight the criminal misuse of firearms, and supports policies that are truly aimed at improving public safety instead of measures like AB 1964 that will only impact law-abiding Americans.

Please call AND e-mail Governor Brown respectfully informing him of your disappointment on his lack of protection for law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen.  Governor Brown can be reached at 916-445-2841 and by e-mail at:  http://gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php.
