Liberal California City Considers Banning People Feeding Homeless


California city proposes ban on public feeding homeless

 The new measure, if passed, will make the handing out of food in Lancaster, CA banned on public streets, sidewalks, parking lots and other city-owned property.

 Lawmakers claim the extreme measure will cut down on trash and “public nuisance.” But critics claim it will endanger the lives of the already vulnerable homeless population.

 Lancaster’s Mayor Rex Parris, a massive supporter of the ban, argued with homeless advocates in a tense meeting on Tuesday night.

Foxnews.com reports: “A lot of people would come to eat, the people feeding them would leave and the mess would be left behind,” Parris said. “We’re talking about people defecating in the entryways of the business. It became a public health problem.”

The City and government in general needs to stop legislating morals and social policy... if the problem with homelessness is so great that it is spilling over into areas the city doesn't want it... they need to examine why and too take corrective action... things like RENT CONTROL and reducing regulation, taxes and other anti-business laws... thus bringing back industry and jobs... ending the primary cause for homelessness.

One thing for sure they should end any sanctuary status for illegals and go after employers who refuse to hire US Citizens preferring low wage illegal aliens.

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
