"As part of the funding proposal, Newsom also included plans to create a statewide gun buyback program, fund gun violence research at the University of California at Davis..."

Thanks Gavin. Are the bad guys on the streets just waiting to change their violent ways and going straight by having the opportunity to "sell" their guns back to the state? "Gun violence" research? Sounds like more people with MDs or PhDs after their names trying to legitimize propaganda from the political left that guns are "germs" that cause "disease"(and the people who abuse them are "victims") - so you can justify passing even more gun laws/bans that the criminals will just ignore. Just what we don't need to be spending more taxpayer money on.

Does everyone now feel "safer" as a result of this? Nothing will change as it relates to violent crime until the bail "reform", defund the police, open borders, social justice, and "systemic racism" crowd (members of Newsom's own political party) are discredited, voted out, recalled, and replaced. "Progressive" DAs in LA and SF have already been lax in holding criminals accountable and state gun laws make self-defense difficult (if not prohibitive). Looks like the polls were not looking good for Democrats on this issue and something had to be done.

aaaaahhhhh ha ha ha ha.....ya'll had the chance and decided to wait it out. And now you get more of the same.

more covid restrictions

more school dumbing down
(by the way, the private school track his kids are on won't be adopting the math limitations on AP courses public schools have to), nor the radical version of critical race theory being proposed....or even the "equal outcomes" approach public schools are mandating. Believe it or not, but they actually will get full A, B, C, D, and F grades......and assignments are due when scheduled.

Apparently we are re-funding the CHP for crimes committed in neighborhoods typically under the local police jurisdictions (way to avoid saying he funded the Police after saying defund the police earlier).

This guy is an absolute waste of air.

Uses state resources to create fire barriers for his winery that he apparently has no influence over......ha.

Crime is apparently down....yet we're having to increase funding because....its down?

Please stop voting these jokers in office, find a moderate Republican or Democrat. Vote for the Republican that other Republicans call a socialist. Vote for the Democrat that other Democrats call a Trump supporter.

Stop voting down party lines. Stop buying the lie.
