Not sure if serious.

The ordinance affects companies which have donated money to (sponsored) the NRA, or otherwise conducted business with it. In other words, if a company in the printing business accepted an order from the NRA to print pamphlets, they will be required to disclose that fact.

Makes sense (from an ultra-lib) standpoint if you are trying to decrease the amount of funding available to the NRA or make it difficult for them to do business with companies in California- imply that you are going to blackball any company which donates money to, or receives orders from, the NRA.

It's also a good way of coloring public perception of the NRA. "Oh, man, this group is so evil that companies which do business with it are required to DISCLOSE that fact!" In a few years, we'll start to see clickbait headlines about some random city councilman who hired a lawncare company which "had failed to disclose its previous connections with the NRA." My interpretation: LA is playing the long-game here.

I think it's a fairly simple game. If you're a Democrat and want to get ahead in the party, you need to set yourself apart in extreme ways to get noticed by the power-players. Coming up with with **** like this is one way to please Feinstein at least. The councilman who wrote it, Mitch O'Farrel will probably be appointed by the Mayor to a higher position... then accuse the mayor of sexual assault and run for Mayor. Then run for state congress. Then claim native american 1/64 and become a Senator, then Governor... and in 20 years, be a Presidential hopeful... with a strong record of "taking on the NRA".

The problem for him is that it's tough to stand out as a Democrat in California, that's at war with Oregon and Washinton to be the most "woke" state on the left coast. Ocasio-Cortez could likely be appointed God-Emperor of Los Angeles County if she just showed up and flashed her ****.

A quick Google'ing reveals that O'farrel is 100% about development. His disctrict encompasses Hollywood. My guess is that there is a large LA contractor/developer/real-estate whatever that voted for Trump who he wants to "out" so he can funnel business to some company owned by one of Feinsteins cousins.

What really sucks for the people of Los Angeles, is that the first company who actually does have a "tie" to the NRA... and doesn't win a bid where they were clearly the best candidate... will sue the city to the tune of tens or hundreds of millions that will be paid by taxpayers.

You're just mad that this story isn't out of OK.

Be happy that you have a strong Contitutional Conservative as Governor now who will sign permitless carry when it gets to him.

Hardly chief. In reality, I'm not worried about permitless carry. Ultimately, anyone who wants to carry a gun, legally or not, is just going to do it. Criminality be damned.

As for the "strong Constitutional Conservative" governor? Nah, he's a bonafide crook who had his own company barred from doing business in the state until he stacked the committee after being elected, he never voted in an Oklahoma gubernatorial election until he himself ran for office, and he and his kind in the state house constantly propose or pass laws, that go explicitly against the state constitution, which costs us wasted money and time in court, to play to the religious base of this state.

I'm going to stray off topic for a moment to address the comment above.

I'm just an amateur student of the teachings of Jesus, but he was pretty outspoken against legislation of morality. He said he wanted people to do things willingly because they knew it was the right thing to do. He said the people who behave a certain way only because of the compulsion of law are worse than those who don't follow any law, because they're Hypocrites at a minimum.

Your politicians are either poor scholars of what they're purporting to follow or more likely just pandering as politicians so often do.

Jesus's teachings were far more libertarian than many of his more vocal followers would lead you to believe.

Correct.

Sorry, there are things I love about Oklahoma, but many of the idiots who live that constantly vote against their own interests just because someone goes to church blows my mind.

But this state was literally founded by cheaters, who then try to use Jesus as a moral compass. It's mind boggling.
