Californias Largest Police Union Joins Anti-Gun Initiative Opposition

posted on May 11, 2016

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plan to further restrict gun rights in California has taken an even bigger setback: Opposition from the state’s largest law enforcement union, as well as eight other police groups. The proposal, dubbed by Newsom as the Safety For All Act, would ban magazines that would hold more than 10 rounds, as well as require background checks for buying ammunition. The California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA) is concerned those measures will, in reality, make the public less safe, leading them to join the resistance.

Currently, the Coalition for Civil Liberties heads up the opposition, with Coalition Co-Chair Chuck Michel summing up their position. “It’s telling that California’s law enforcement experts are overwhelmingly critical of Newsom’s proposal,” Michel said in a prepared statement. “They’re the ones risking their lives every day and have a unique vantage point on what it takes to keep our streets safe. We should be listening to them, not politicians out to promote their own personal interest.”
