Calif. Gov. Brown vetoes bill banning semi-automatic rifles

This could affect future legislation in other states as well.

I wonder if Brown didn't want to appear to be setting *precedent* ?

He signed 'lesser' controls, but rejected the main point.

Hmmm.....



SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill that would have banned future sales of most semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines, part of a firearms package approved by state lawmakers in response to mass shootings in other states.

The governor announced signing other gun-related legislation on Friday but rejected the centerpiece bill, which would have imposed the nation’s toughest restrictions on gun ownership.

Brown’s veto message for SB374 said it was too far-reaching. The bill by Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg would have outlawed future sales of an entire class of weapons that includes most assault rifles.

Don't count on it.

They are never going to be that up.

They want to live in a society where only the cops, and the military have guns, and anyone who is not them is a 'criminal'.

I have seen Jerry Brown do some good things. I don't agree with his wide agenda at all but, I give him a lot of credit for this and other attempts to resist tyranny and corruption.

I had put this up to commend his efforts to curb the cronyism connected to Reagan's environmental regulations:

I think Moonbeam just saw a very serious chance of Constitutional challenge and so he made a tactical retreat to keep from losing more. I very seriously doubt he had personal problems with this, as much as he had real issues of just how far is too far until the Court balance can be shifted. (I'm sure some go to bed hoping ..and wake up wishing for that to happen, every day)

Gov. Brn will be running for a higher office very soon and he wants to be appealing to a broader demographic than just yuppies, hippies, and the demented.

I see him slated for the Demb. VP slot with Hillary in 16.

Yeah, that sounds like the most likely explanation. I just take any opportunity I can to applaud good behavior like the corruption he tried to go against. Any Dem who goes against union interests publicly must get some credit.
