California: Several Anti-Gun Bills Waiting for Governor’s Action

2nd Amendment rights, Constitution, Politicians & agencies, State gov

E-mail Governor Brown Now and over the weekend urging him to VETO all anti-gun bills

Gun owners still have critical work to do to stop anti-gun action in Sacramento, because Governor Brown has only three days to VETO or sign several anti-gun bills or these bills will go into law without his signature.

Please call AND e-mail Governor Jerry Brown TODAY and also over the weekend urging him to VETO SB 1366, AB 1527, AB 2460 and AB 2333.  Also, forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners in California and urge them to do the same.  California needs all gun owners and sportsmen contacting the Governor now urging him to SUPPORT the Second Amendment by vetoing these anti-gun bills.

Let him know that these bills, if enacted into law, will only hurt law-abiding gun owners because they are the only ones who respect and obey the law.  These bills will do nothing to reduce California’s crime rate.

Governor Jerry Brown can be reached at 916-445-2841 and by e-mail here.

Urge Governor Brown to VETO the following bills:

   Senate Bill 1366 – Lost and Stolen Reporting of Firearms

SB 1366, introduced by state Senator Mark DeSaulnier (D-7), would require every person to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 48 hours of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost.  Law-abiding gun owners should not be made a victim twice and punished for theft of their firearm(s).

Assembly Bill 1527 – Open Carry Ban (of unloaded long guns)

AB 1527, introduced by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-44), would expand on last year’s ban on open carrying of an unloaded handgun to also include unloaded rifles and shotguns.

Assembly Bill 2333 – Liability for Negligent Storage of BB Devices

AB 2333, introduced by Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-69), would expand California’s negligent storage law to any person who knowingly or reasonably should have known that a minor is likely to gain access to a BB device without the permission of the minor’s parents or legal guardian and the minor carries the BB device in a public place.  The definition of “public place” includes a “front yard, driveway, doorway or entrance to a building or dwelling.”  If a minor possesses a “BB device” that is visible from your own private property you and your child would be in violation.  Violators would be subject to a civil penalty and/or community service.

  Assembly Bill 2460 – Ban of Law Enforcement Transfer of Firearms

AB 2460, introduced by Assemblyman Roger Dickinson (D-9), would ban law enforcement officers from transferring handguns that are not on California’s approved “roster” to anyone but law enforcement officers.  Currently, California law allows for the transfer of firearms that are not on the approved “roster” to be transferred to law-abiding civilians.  These transfers must go through a licensed firearms dealer and are only transferred when the new civilian owner has passed a criminal background check.

Unfortunately on Wednesday, Governor Jerry Brown succumbed to the political agenda of radical animal “rights” activists and signed Senate Bill 1221 into law.  SB 1221 bans the use of dogs to hunt bears and bobcats.  Hunting with dogs is a tradition that continues across the country.  Many dog breeds with select characteristics for hunting can be traced back for thousands of years and the use of hounds for hunting has never been shown to have an adverse impact on wildlife numbers.

UN Small Arms Treaty Passes While Media Sleeps

2nd Amendment rights

http://www.westernjournalism.com/un-small-arms-treaty-passes-while-media-sleeps/

September 20, 2012

By Breaking News

The United Nations Small Arms Treaty passed in its second session. The Media was silent over its passage.

According to the UN’s press release,

Concluding its two-week session today, the second United Nations conference to review the 2001 Programme of Action on trafficking in small arms and light weapons adopted a consensus outcome document that highlighted the international community’s renewed commitment to preventing, combating and eradicating the illicit trade.

The document’s adoption represented a major achievement for delegations, who had failed to agree on a final outcome at the first review conference, held in 2006. “We accomplished something great today,” said U. Joy Ogwu ( Nigeria), President of the Conference, formally known as the United Nations Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.

According to the text, Member States renewed their pledge to rid the world of the scourge brought upon it by the illicit manufacture, transfer and circulation of small arms and light weapons, and their excessive accumulation and uncontrolled spread in many parts of the world. They also committed to mobilizing the necessary political will and resources to implement the Programme of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with the aim of achieving clear and tangible results over the next six years, through 2018.

Further by the text, States emphasized that the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons continued to sustain conflicts, exacerbate armed violence, undermine respect for international humanitarian law and international human rights law, aid terrorism and illegal armed groups, and facilitate increasing levels of transnational organized crime, as well as trafficking in humans, drugs and certain natural resources.

CFWC responds to goofy opinion

Klamath River & Dams

PNP comment: We agree with the California Farm Water Coalition’s statement. — Editor Liz Bowen

Klamath salmon could be harmed by planned canal

Opinion
By Victor Gonella
From Eureka Times-Standard – Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012
The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors was right when it recently acted to protect the Trinity andKlamath River salmon runs from the looming peripheral canal. The peripheral canal is a grandiose water project being pushed by a handful of corporate agricultural operations in theSan JoaquinValley and southernCalifornia’s biggest water supplier to grab more of northernCalifornia’s salmon water.

Coalition response…This opinion article is written opposite of the facts. The Trinity River ROD (Record of Decision) was adopted in December 2000 and requires an annual release of water between 369,000 acre-feet and 815,000 acre-feet for fish in the river. Water is sent to the Sacramento River watershed each year only after Interior ensures there will be enough water to make the fishery releases to theTrinity River required by the ROD.

Far from reducing the salmon flows required by the Trinity ROD, Interior is going in the opposite direction by releasing even more flows to theTrinity Riverfor salmon than it is supposed to under the ROD. This August and September, Reclamation released more water than is provided for under the ROD in an effort to improve conditions in theLower Klamath. The Siskiyou Board of Supervisors, among others, objected to those increased releases based on concerns about the unexamined environmental consequences of unnaturally high flows this time of year, including concerns that the releases could trigger premature upstream migration before upstream water temperatures have sufficiently cooled.

Claiming that water users “have their eye on theTrinity River” to increase their deliveries is far from the truth. It ignores the regulations that govern these deliveries and the reality of how much water is being dedicated for fish purposes. Such claims only serve to heighten the rhetoric aimed at the Bay Delta Conservation Plan that is directed to restore the ecosystem of the Delta and establish a reliable water supply.

Letter from Siskiyou Co. Ag. Commish to CA. F&G Commission – wolf

Agriculture - California, Dept. Fish & Game, Endangered Species Act, Siskiyou County, State gov, Wolves

September 27, 2012

Mr. Jim Kellogg, President

California Fish and Game Commission

P.O. Box 944209
Sacramento, CA 94244-2090

Re:  Petition to List the Gray Wolf as an Endangered Species under the California Endangered Species Act

Dear President Kellogg,

The Siskiyou County Agricultural Commissioner appreciates the opportunity to comment on the evaluation of the petition to list the gray wolf as an endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA).   The Mission of the Agriculture Commissioner is to promote and protect the agricultural industry within his respective county.  In an effort to protect the livestock industry I am expressing my opposition to the listing of the gray wolf as an endangered species under CESA.  The agricultural industry, local economy, and families in Siskiyou County communities have been adversely affected by many other endangered species listings.  Some examples are the Coho Salmon, Shortnose Sucker, Lost River Sucker and the Spotted Owl.  Listing the wolf as endangered under CESA will further stifle economic growth and create additional impacts to the agricultural industry. It is the Fish and Game Commission’s responsibility to consider economic impact and property rights that may be affected by this listing.

The California Department of Fish and Game has been considering the development of a Wolf Management Plan. The Plan needs to indentify the agency responsible for confirming wolf depredation and establish a fund for livestock losses.  If the wolf is listed as endangered and granted additional protection under CESA, it will be much more difficult to develop a Wolf Management Plan with the elements needed to protect livestock and make appropriate compensation for losses resulting from wolf depredation.

Wolves entering California will not find bountiful wild ungulates populations that once existed in Yellowstone Park or central Idaho where wolves were introduced in 1995/96. California’s deer populations have been declining for many years and are at very low levels now. Elk populations are growing but are not sufficient to sustain large packs of wolves. The presence of wolves in California coupled with already low populations of wild ungulates will result in substantial livestock depredation and economic loss. It has been well documented in other states that exposing livestock to wolves increases stress, increases weight loss and decreases conception rates. Human population density must also be considered as a factor.  Siskiyou County residences will be subjected to more frequent interactions with wolves resulting in the increased taking of their property.  In consideration of the economic losses from killed and stressed cattle as a result of a potentially increasing wolf population and no mechanism in place for reimbursement of such losses or control of wolf populations, I oppose the listing and urge the Fish and Game Commissioners to reject the Petition to list the wolf as an endangered species under CESA.

Fish and Game Code Section 2062 defines an “endangered species” as a native species “which is in serious danger of becoming extinct throughout all or part of its range…”  Any gray wolves that existed in California have been extinct for more than 80 years. We must place human needs and the ability to produce renewable natural resources above the needs of an animal that is already extinct.

Sincerely,

Patrick J. Griffin

Siskiyou County Agricultural Commissioner

Oregon Senator Doug Whitsettt on Water Rights in Oregon

Agriculture, OR Senator Doug Whitsett, Oregon and Water, Oregon governments, Water, Resources & Quality

Hundreds of legislative proposals are drafted (LC Draft) for Oregon State Agencies by the attorneys at Legislative Counsel each legislative session. This year, the Oregon Water Resources Department (Department) has asked for LC drafts on six or more legislative proposals. At least three of the concepts should be of significant interest to all those who use the waters of the state.

LC 657 proposes to establish Department authority to change the name on a water right certificate and to establish a fee to fully pay for that service.

The name on a water right certificate is usually the name of the person, or entity, that first claimed the water right, and that originally made the improvements required to receive the permanent certificate. It has long been understood that water rights appurtenant to the land are transferred to the new land owner when the land is sold. However, the name on the certificate is usually not changed when the land irrigated by that water right is purchased.

A recent Oregon Supreme Court decision suggests that the owner of the water right is the name of the person or entity on the certificate, rather than the owner of the land to which the water right is appurtenant.

The proposed change would allow current landowners to pay to secure the water right certificate appurtenant to their land in their own name. The LC draft is not entirely clear whether the Department would have authority to change the name on a certificate without being requested to do so, or what course the Department would take if the requested name change is contested.

The change would also better enable the Department to communicate with water right holders, to improve compliance with water measurement requirements, and to clarify where to send the bill for the Department’s proposed new tax on the use of water.
LC 659 would establish a water right management tax to be charged to each of Oregon’s 85,000 holders of Oregon water rights. The tax would apply to all agricultural, industrial, municipal and in stream water rights.

The Department expects that a significant number of privately owned water rights will be abandon by their holders rather than pay the new annual tax on water. The draft is not clear on who would pay the fee for Oregon’s myriad in-stream water rights.
This tax would extract about $12 million per biennium from Oregon water users. The revenue is to be used to generally support the Department’s activities.

The concept assumes that anyone holding a permit, certificate or decree would be subject to an annual fee of $100 per water right, with a cap of $1,000 for all but municipal customers. Apparently the tax cap would not apply to municipal water rights because municipal systems have a base of rate payers that allows them to pass the cost of the water tax on to their customers.

LC 661 would expand the current water right transaction fee-schedule and then make it permanent.

The draft language increases the current fee schedules by about 13 percent across the board. It also adds a couple of additional new fees “to bring consistency” to the overall fee schedule. The Department alleges that the double digit fee increase is needed to account for increased Department costs.

In the event that this bill does not pass, a sunset clause in the current fee schedule authorization would automatically cause the fees to revert back to the amounts charged by the Department in 2003.

The recent adoption of Oregon’s Integrated Water Resources Strategy has the potential to significantly increase the regulatory activities of the Water Resources Department. Many irrigators and legislators have wondered how the Department planned to fund those activities. The answer appears to be double-digit fee increases and a new perpetual tax on the use of the waters of the state.

Please remember, if we do not stand up for rural Oregon, no one will.

Best regards,

Doug

Southern Oregon irrigation project gains wide support

Southern Oregon irrigation project gains wide support | capitalpress.com

Capital Press

September 27, 2012

MEDFORD, Ore. — Farmers, conservationists, lawmakers and others ratified an agreement Sept. 26 proclaiming their commitment to improve water delivery systems in the upper Rogue River Valley.

The Water for Irrigation Streams and Economy project, or WISE, is designed to improve in-stream flows for fish and increase irrigation efficiencies for 35,000 acres of farm ground serviced by the Talent, Medford and Rogue River Valley irrigation districts.

“I’m proud to be involved in this collaborate process between so many diverse interests in our valley,” said Rep. Peter Buckley, D-Ashland, who participated in the ceremony.

“WISE is a responsible, economically viable plan to get cooler, cleaner water in our streams, more reliable water supplies for our farmers, and better habitat for our salmon and steelhead,” said Bob Hunter of WaterWatch of Oregon.

The project involves piping about 200 miles of canals and 300 miles of laterals and possibly raising the height of a reservoir at a total cost of approximately $400 million.

Next step in the project is developing a cost-benefit analysis, said Bryan Baumgartner of the Rogue River Valley Irrigation District. Project leaders recently received notification they have been awarded $243,000 in state funds to do the analysis, Baumgartner said.

The project also needs an environmental impact statement before it can proceed to construction. The EIS is projected to cost $3 million. Under the project plan, the federal government would pay half the cost.

Baumgartner said he’s been working on the project since the 1990s.

“Because of the enormity of it, we’ve never been able to get it off the ground,” he said.

Six California central coast farms fined for ag runoff

Agriculture - California, Clean Water ACT - EPA

PNP comment: More fear from government agencies with over-regulations and fines to support itself. Pure corruption! Not part of the Constitution. — Editor Liz Bowen

Posted: Thursday, September 27, 2012 9:31 AM

Capital Press

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — Six California central coast farms have been fined for failing to comply with new agricultural runoff rules.

The Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board fined the farms nearly $36,000 for failure to submit monitoring fees or file monitoring reports.

Farmers have the choice of participating in a cooperative monitoring program for a fee or doing the monitoring themselves.

Monitoring is a key component in new rules designed to reduce polluted farm runoff.

The San Luis Obispo County Tribune (bit.ly/NThKZS) says the farms cited are Garcia Farms in Salinas, B&E Vineyard in Paso Robles, Amesti Road Ranch in Freedom, Mine Brothers in Watsonville, Vidal Medina in Watsonville and Gomes Orchards of Hollister.

An Oct. 12 hearing is scheduled.

Kids wowed by stock dogs at California education day

Agriculture - California

Posted: Thursday, September 27, 2012 11:32 AM

By TIM HEARDEN

Capital Press

ANDERSON, Calif. – After rancher and dog breeder Merle Newton gave his presentation to schoolchildren during an education day here, it didn’t take long for the kids to rush forward.

They were invited to reach through the fence and pet the dogs he just used to move sheep around an arena.

“I thought it was really cool,” said Jordan Constantino, a fourth-grader at Junction Elementary School in Palo Cedro, Calif. “I like to learn about what kind of dogs do it (work on ranches).”

Newton’s talk was included among more than a half-dozen stations that area fourth-graders rotated through during the Shasta County Farm Bureau’s 12th Farm-City Day Sept. 26 at the Shasta District Fair grounds here.

Several hundred youngsters were given lessons on the beef industry, area wildlife, rangelands, bees, forestry and bugs and watched 4-H students feed a calf with a bottle.

The stock dog demonstration is always one of the most popular at the annual field day. Last year the kids voted it as their favorite.

Students are riveted as Newton and his wife, Sandi, show how the dogs learn to start, stop and circle a herd to move it along.

“I think this is great,” said Meredith Feamster, whose daughter, Raelynn, was attending the field trip. “It’s good for the kids. It gives them an appreciation for all of the ag that’s around us. They see all the fields and the cows that are all around us. It gives the kids an appreciation for what’s real.”

During their talk, the Newtons ask the children if they had a glass of milk that morning, then tell them a stock dog was responsible in an indirect way.
