Seems like a no-brainer to me.

California lawmakers passed three gun control bills Monday, including a lifetime ban on owning firearms for people convicted of domestic violence, days after a gunman in Jacksonville, Florida opened fire at a video game tournament, killing two people and injuring 14.

The Democratic-controlled legislature sent the domestic violence bill, as well as two other measures — a lifetime ban on people placed on involuntary psychiatric holds twice in one year and new standard for residents to obtain a concealed weapon permit (eight hours of training and pass a live-fire shooting test) — to Gov. Jerry Brown’s (D) desk for consideration.

“We must do more to ensure the safety of our survivors of domestic violence,” said Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio (D) on Monday, of the bill that extends the current 10-year ban.

The measures still await Brown’s signature, but California will likely soon join 26 states that have passed at least 55 new gun control laws, according to a July report from the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence — a significant spike following the Parkland, Florida high school massacre in February, when a gunman killed 17 people, sparking a youth-led activist movement.

It is no real surprise that liberal California is passing more stringent gun control laws, and that lifetime ban for domestic abusers seems long overdue. 

But it is telling that there are 26 other states also moving toward more comprehensive gun legislation, more stringent background checks, and restricting the access to weapons by wife beaters.

    OT? ““As I told you, many of you have already been chosen—so it doesn’t even matter. But as the Miss Universe Organization and the Miss USA Organization, we get to choose a certain number,” Trump is heard saying on the tape, in between ordering around and ogling contestants. “You know why we do that? Because years ago when I first bought it, we chose ten people—I chose none. And I get here, and the most beautiful people were never chosen! And I went nuts!… So we call it ‘The Trump Rule.’ It’s called ‘The Trump Rule’—and we get to choose.””

    “How silly to think that these men wouldn’t already be preparing for new professional opportunities—the kinds their victims were denied, because talking about your harassment or assault is career suicide in a way that masturbating in front of women or pressuring subordinates to sleep with you never will be.”

    “”When I went to Iraq in 2003, the first time, I gave her power of attorney, and she handled my finances throughout my entire military career and that continued on when I got into Congress,” Hunter said in the interview, making reference to his wife. “She was also the campaign manager so whatever she did, that’ll be looked at too, I’m sure. But I didn’t do it. I didn’t spend any money illegally.””<RiiiggghhhttT

    Also have eliminated bail. You’re either released on your own recognizance or you stay in jail.

    (According to a study published by the CDC last July, more than half of all murdered women in the U.S. are killed by domestic violence.)

    “Jenkins, 39, is reportedly being held without bail at a correctional facility after authorities charged him with criminal homicide. He allegedly admitted to cutting Fox’s brake lines to get a metal pipe to smoke crack cocaine, and police have said they found three of the car’s brake lines cut and a fourth that was crimped. He has also reportedly been charged with terroristic threats against his sister.”
