Skip to comments.Capitol Roundup: VoIP, BB Gun Bills Head to Governor's Desk [CA BB gun ban]
Posted on 08/24/2012 3:35:32 PM PDT by smokingfrog
Its been another busy day at the California Capitol, as lawmakers voted on dozens of bills ahead of the end-of-session deadline.
Lawmakers have given final approval to a wide array of bills. Some faced strong opposition, like a ban on regulating Voice-over-Internet-Protocol phone service; and a bill that would penalize parents if their children openly display a BB gun in public. Others passed more easily, like a fee on lobbyists that would pay for improving the state's campaign finance website. Those measures now head to the desk of Governor Jerry Brown.
Other bills that moved forward still face one last vote in the legislature. They include a ban on warrantless searches of a person's whereabouts using GPS data from cell phones; and a requirement that gun owners report their lost or stolen weapons within 48 hours.
And many big issues still remain unresolved before lawmakers adjourn at the end of next week - including changes to California's pension and workers compensation systems.

California government is a joke while it’s crime rate skyrockets and conviction rates plummet.
Get out now before they make it illegal to leave.
In a few years there will be a law requiring a complete financial disclosure and payment of an extortionate “severance fee” before you will be allowed to move your business out of state.
And they will restrict the amount of money you can take out of the state.
A few years later these laws will apply to moving your personal residence.
How long before the roads to border states are patrolled by drones to catch illegal relocaters?
At what point will you be required to show you have permission to relocate out of state before the border guards permit you to pass?
Seems like reasonable bills. Especially the continuation on the ban of regulations on Voip.
Still, they should concentrate on issues that would create Yobs.
Red Ryder is rolling in his grave.
Red Ryder BB guns were all we all wanted when I was a kid.
Banning dogs for hunting?
Dogs are used when hunting bear-—upland game birds—& wild boars.
Another set of reasons to pack up & leave California.
This will cure California of the scourge of 12-year-olds brazenly carrying their Daisies in public.
Gosh, I feel safer already.
California government is a joke ...
Amen! It’s not like they have the economy to deal with, so they have all this extra time to deal with frivilous crap. What do those idiots believe that banning BB guns will do to improve society or the environment in any way? Damn, I’m glad I was raised in Texas and still live here!
I had my first BB gun, a Daisy single shot, when I was five y/o. It eventually rusted out because I kept a bunch of BBs in my mouth/cheek. After firing, I’d spit a BB down the barrel and then cock the gun to fire again. When about 10, I took some saved money to a nearby Western Auto and bought a Daisy pump BB gun; very powerful and raised my kill rating for birds and squirrels!
So is most of what Obama has done in the last 4 years and half of what the federal government has done in the last 50 years.
To the Feds and a state government like California's the US Constitution is just another set of archaic rules to evade with lies, legal contortions and slimy tricks.
That list is already mostly complete in Federal statute. But, I had to point out CA could never accomplish any of it without Fed conspiracy, and then the Feds wouldn't turn the dough over to CA, they'd be keepin' it.
Fortunately, I believe that come January the Feds won' be in Rat hands, which may make these laws much longer in coming.
The big crook and the little crook work hand in hand.
