36 neighbors want a plan to end gun violence in Oakland.

Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing. More than 1.5 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives. 

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town. Learn more about the gun violence prevention movement here - http://everytown.org/

From June 18:

“Under AB 180, the City of Oakland would have the authority to regulate the registration of firearms and licensing of gun owners---areas that are currently pre-empted by state law. AB 180 is a smart and sensible bill that empowers Oakland and provides local control in addressing gun violence---where it is needed most,” concluded Bonta.

The California State Senate Public Safety Committee approved AB 180, authored by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland). AB 180 provides the City of Oakland with additional tools that it needs to curb gun violence. AB 180 now moves to the Senate floor."

Proposition 63, The Safety for All initiative, gives California voters the opportunity to keep guns and ammo out of the hands of violent, dangerous, hateful people this November. This proposition:

- Removes illegal guns from our communities by ensuring that dangerous criminals and domestic abusers sell or transfer their firearms after they’re convicted.

- Requires any business that sells ammunition to report if their ammunition is lost or stolen.

- Requires people to notify law enforcement if their guns are lost or stolen.

- Ensures people convicted of gun theft are ineligible to own guns.

- Strengthens our background check systems and ensures that CA law enforcement shares data about dangerous people with the FBI.

Bonta and Skinner both called on Gov. Brown, who formerly served as Oakland's mayor, to sign a bill already approved by the state Legislature, Assembly Bill 180, that would pre-empt state law and provide Oakland with additional tools to regulate the registration and licensing of firearms.
Skinner said, "All communities aren't equal" and "some cities don't need their own gun laws" but cities such as Oakland, Richmond and Fresno "need the tools" to have tougher gun registration and licensing laws.

Thanks Max - great insights.

As far as the text of idea - we worked with the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a coalition of 750+ US Mayors, to share their proposal across cities. It was meant to start open, honest, local dialogues based on the national issue. Here's an explanation of the partnership - handbook.neighborland.com/dema...

Also, um, the proposal above is a copy-pasted advocacy for a national plan to end gun violence.

There's nothing about Oakland specifically. What the hell?

We can't do gang injunctions in Oakland. Could we target criminals who've used firearms individually instead?

Call up Rob Bonta and Nancy Skinner, tell them to pass a law stating that anyone convicted of having an unregistered gun using any gun in a violent crime would be subjected to a mandatory 5 years of parole searches, no matter what their sentence is. Use a gun illegally, the cops get to check and make sure you don't have a gun, any time they want to, for five years.

Also: funding public research would seem contrary to banning assault weapons. Public research is clear on illegal guns, mostly handguns being the most deadly class of weapon in America. Register all of them. Force registration retroactively. But as for assault weapons? Sorry, red herring.

The CDC and two other government agencies did a study of the first assault weapons ban, all three studies concluded it had no effect. More info on that topic, with facts to back it up, here: www.assaultweapon.info

Huge win today! www.demandaplan.org/thanks

"President Obama signed 23 executive orders to crack down on gun criminals, expand access to mental health services and make our schools safer. He also laid out the crucial priorities that we’ll be fighting for in the months ahead -- priorities that will save lives, including:

Fixing our broken background check system and requiring a background check for ALL gun sales.

Getting assault weapons and high-capacity magazines off our streets.

Making gun trafficking a federal crime with tough penalties for offenders.

Funding public research on gun violence and gun crime that will make law enforcement more efficient and effective."
