Oakland Tries to Take On Guns
By MELANIE MASON

After Tuesday night’s city council meeting, Oakland is one step closer to approving stricter gun control laws.

The council unanimously approved, in the first reading, a measure proposed by Larry Reid, a council member representing East Oakland. The measure consists of three proposed changes: Require the reporting of lost or stolen firearms to the Oakland Police Department; require a thumbprint for all ammunition purchases and enforce strict permit requirements for the sale of firearms and ammunition in Oakland. The council is expected to consider the proposal for a final vote on Feb. 16.

That idea to restrict the sale of firearms in Oakland has riled some people, because, as the San Francisco Chronicle reported, Oakland does not have any firearms dealers that sell to the public. On its website, Calguns, the gun rights group, said that the ordinance is “an extensive, draconian regulation of firearms, firearm components, and ammunition vendors, which will basically make it impossible to have a gun store in the City of Oakland.”

This is the second time in two weeks that the city officials have asserted their pro-gun-control stance. On January 19, the council authorized city attorney, John Russo, to sign a friend-of-the-court brief in the case of McDonald vs. Chicago, which is to begin oral arguments in front of the Supreme Court this March. McDonald would decide if state and local gun control laws are subject to the Second Amendment (the Court’s landmark gun control decision, District of Columbia v. Heller, only applied to Washington D.C.). Oakland joins other jurisdictions like Richmond, Sacramento and Alameda County in asserting that the Second Amendment does not apply to state and municipal governments.

On Tuesday, I spoke to Mr. Russo and Reygan Harmon, a legislative analyst for Mr. Reid, about the status of gun control laws in Oakland. Their comments have been condensed and edited.

Q.

How did these proposals come about? What was the strategy?

A.

Ms. Harmon: The Legal Community Against Violence approached the city of Oakland almost two years ago, when they did an audit of our municipal code. They gave us suggestions on enhancing local gun control laws.

A lot of the laws that are on the books prior to these proposed changes are no longer applicable because California state laws have changed. This is cleaning up the municipal code, because we haven’t really looked at gun control laws in ten years.

A.

Mr. Russo: The national landscape is in flux. Our strategy is to try to find ways to protect ourselves. That’s really what it’s about. The reality is that we’re trying to fashion solutions in the real world, as opposed to these people who want to have a very academic discussion about the scope of the Second Amendment.

Q.

Why include a proposal that regulates firearms dealers, when there currently are no licensed dealers in Oakland that sell to the public?

A.

Mr. Russo: Council member Reid has one of the more challenged districts in the city. I think he wants to be sure that nobody gets any ideas of opening something. And if they did, they could regulate it under this law.

Q.

What impact can one city’s gun control laws have?

A.

Mr. Russo: The reality is that this is something that’s better handled federally or at the state level. No question about that. The irony is that’s the argument that gets made by largely pointy-headed, theoretical pro-gun people. But at the same time, they are vehemently opposed to federal regulation.

Still, if a couple people end up not getting killed, I’m not going to apologize. I’m not going to try to take away efforts that will only be incrementally successful if they are life saving efforts.

Ms. Harmon: I think one city can do the best they can, and that’s what we’re trying to do. We’re working with neighboring cities like Richmond, San Francisco and San Mateo so we have similar legislation to make it more difficult for people to go city to city. All we can do, or all San Francisco or Richmond can do, is tighten up the laws in their cities.

Perhaps they would be open to CGF doing an "audit of our municipal code. They gave us suggestions on enhancing local gun control laws."

Then they could adjust those codes to ensure they are in line with Federal, State, and case law.

Russo wants to be mayor and may have a decent shot at it one of these days.

Also - for those who aren't aware, Oakland has a special tax they levy on stores that sell guns which applies to everything, so if you buy a fishing rod you have to pay more for it than you would at a store that doesn't sell guns. That was one of the major factors that drove Siegle's (sp?), Oakland's last gun store, out of business.

If he has to play the "academic" card, then he clearly knows he doesn't have a legal leg to stand on.

Also, how ironic that he would be interested in "practical" rather than academic solutions considering that Oakland doesn't have any real gun stores. (So the net effect is "practically" speaking, very little.)

And that's the point isn't it? Mr. Russo, along with LCAV, is engaging with theory. We, on the other hand, have that pesky constitution thingee and several hundred years of jurisprudence and legal scholarship as the point of our argument.

In a perfect and logical world, Russo's theory would never be entertained.

Can we PRAR Reid's and Russo's financials? I suspect LCAV has funded Reid's campaign. Be good to know if it was right before or right after. Should do similar in Sacramento, Richmond and San Francisco.

If there is a pattern, FPPC may want to look into it.

navyinrwanda
02-03-2010, 7:48 PM
I can't say that I'm too surprised. Bay Area government officials generally move in similar circles with the same private sector attorneys who practice pro bono "public service" law — the same types that help the LCAV. And in these circles, gun control is such a mom-and-apple pie issue that voting "yes" for new ordinances is as reflexive as voting for Barack Obama.

They truly think that any opposition could only come from fringe anti-social extremists or the "gun industry lobby" who want to make money from the slaughter of Oakland's innocents. If there's any hope of getting through to these people (short of an injunction), it'll take a different argument from a different kind of person... not middle-aged overweight white males whining about their "rights" being violated.

Gene and other have suggested that we need more minorities as part of our public face. If we ever want our arguments to be heard by these types, they'll have to be spoken by disabled African-American lesbian single mothers defending themselves and their children.

Or we'll need a big bank account to finance a lot of litigation.

Well, it's looking like the Supreme Court is going to invite CGF to audit Oakland's muni codes and CCW policy.

Instead of dismissing us as Neanderthals, he's now taking the opposite tact and dismissing us as intellectuals?

Yes, I love it! First we were denigrated as hicks, now we're, um, denigrated as being too intellectual?

Anyway, Mr. Russo, I have a not-theoretical plan for helping Oakland's most hopeless neighborhoods. It's not just a flippant, sarcastic plan, but a real one that would work:


The big problem that is blocking any effective law enforcement solutions in Oakland's most troubled neighborhoods is the "don't snitch" movement. This movement is both a value-belief, and also a set of enforcement mechanisms, which prevent law abiding residents from helping the police to help protect them. Obviously there is social pressure to "don't snitch" but it's backed by imminent violence to anyone who breaks the code. That is why the Bay Area routinely has murders in crowded places in broad daylight and there are no witnesses somehow.
If they want to break the "don't snitch" concept they need to give people confidence that they will be safe after they present their information to the police. Not just the person who talks, but his family and so on.
Unfortunately Oakland doesn't have the resources to assign police officers to work as 24-hour bodyguards for everyone (and his family) who calls in a valuable gang tip. It's just not possible. There is only one solution: if the person has not had person criminal involvement, he needs a CCW. Patrick McCullough got one because he reported gang activity. Oakland needs a thousand Patrick McCulloughs.

Oakland joins other jurisdictions like Richmond, Sacramento and Alameda County in asserting that the Second Amendment does not apply to state and municipal governments.


But the First, Fourth, Fifth and the rest of the Amendments DO apply to state and municipal governments? Why would not the second apply as well?

The reality is that we’re trying to fashion solutions in the real world, as opposed to these people who want to have a very academic discussion about the scope of the Second Amendment.

So us redneck, duck huntin', bible toting, gun nuts are now academics?
That's quite a turnaround! Does that mean the the people who are " trying to fashion solutions in the real world" are now the less intelligent parties in the game?
Are we seeing a bit of desperation here?

Following the MacDonald decision, the "discussion" is going to be a lot more than "academic".

Mr. Russo: The reality is that this is something that’s better handled federally or at the state level. No question about that.

No sir, no question about that! Its going to get "handled" at the Federal (SCOTUS) level and Mr. Russo will have his "gun control laws" handed back to him in ribbons.

CGF, as a 501(c)3, is limited in its lobbying efforts and cannot endorse candidates to political office. Lobbying, propaganda or other legislative activity must be kept relatively insubstantial. Intervention in political campaigns or the endorsement/anti-endorsement of candidates for public office is strictly prohibited.

By supporting CGF you would not be getting involved in politics. You would be contributing to educational and legal efforts.

AB962 is -- sort of -- restricted, applying to ammunition "primarily for use in handguns."

The oakland ordinances will apply to -- roughly -- things AB962 doesn't cover,
long-gun/shotgun ammunition,and including reloading supplies, which AB962 doesn't cover.

Except that after Feb 1, 2011, the Oakland ordinance will not apply to ammunition "principally for use in pistols, revolvers, or other firearms capable of being concealed upon the person." This has some odd implications if you

PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS. The TV cameras are located on the other side of the room, and when they pan across the gallery, all they will see will be a bunch of people who look like Klansmen from a distance. This will pretty much cancel out anything positive that we may gain by our appearance at the City Council meeting, and may even have negative effects on the potential litigation. This is the type of image and video that would go viral in a heartbeat, SO DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.

Folks, if anyone comes to the 2/16/2010 CC meeting with any sort of cone on their head, I will personally kick them in the nuts, and force them to use their cone as a suppository.

Dude, the MSM portrayed a black man carrying a black rifle as a white racist redneck carrying a machine gun.

They will find a way. Facts don't matter to the MSM - if the real ones don't fit what they need, they'll make some of their own.

What about a dodecahedron, or perhaps a nice ellipsoid of revolution?

I'm not against polyhedra, so I'll make an exception for pirate hats, since they are, well, cool. . .
