    If elected Governor, I will refuse to send the National Guard to the border. This Exec Order is not about border security. It's about Trump pandering to white nationalists.
  5. Carmen Gutiérrez, candidate for West Coast Governor, today declared that, if elected, she would take all possible steps to prevent the deployment of the Arizona Army National Guard to the border, following an Executive Order by President Trump. “The National Guard have no place at our border. Border security is a job for the Border Patrol,” Gutiérrez explained. “The military are deliberately and expressly forbidden from doing law enforcement work.” “I believe the President's Executive Order is unconstitutional. If I am elected as Governor, I will refuse the President's request. I will take all possible steps to follow my constitutional duty as the Commander-in-Chief of that National Guard to stop them being used unlawfully.” “Trump's actions are nothing to do with border security or immigration. They are everything to do with making himself look like a tough guy, and pandering to the racists and white nationalists amongst his supporters. As a proud Arizonan, I will not allow him to use the people of Arizona to do so.”

  9. Carmen Gutiérrez, Majority Whip of the West Coast Regional Legislature, today announced that she will be running for Governor of the West Coast Region. “If the people of our region have learnt anything over the last two years, it's that we can't rely on the current inhabitant of the White House for the stable leadership that solves the real problems we face today.” “We've all seen this President's campaign chairmen pleading guilty to their crimes, his children employed in the White House, his failure to disavow the racists that embrace him, his pardon of a sheriff's racial profiling, his treatment of the free press. That is not what we need. We need the real solutions to the real problems facing us.” “Real problems like the scourge of drug addition, which needs tackling on many fronts. We need to deal with people who are addicted by treating them like people not like criminals, treating that medical issue. We need to look at the issue of overprescription of opioids, so they're not the first thing the doctor reaches to for people in pain.” “We need to ensure everyone gets the healthcare they need, including veterans, including seniors and including people with pre-existing conditions. We don't need to be ripping the Affordable Care Act down; we need to be building it up. That is what I will do as Governor. Build up our region into the place we have the potential to be.”

  11. Tim Stephens, Congressman from Oregon's 1st district, today introduced the BUMP Act to ban the fitting of bump stocks to semi-automatic firearms. These devices allow semi-automatic firearms to match the firing speed of a fully automatic weapon. "We all saw the devastation of an automatic-like rate of fire at Las Vegas last year, where 58 innocent people lost their lives and over 850 people were injured. And yet, the bump stocks that facilitated that carnage remain legal and on sale," Mr Stephens explained. "This horrific attack would not and could not have occurred with a conventional handgun, rifle, or shotgun; the sort used by law-abiding responsible gun owners for hunting or self defense." Even the National Rifle Association believes something needs to be done, saying "Devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations." "My Bill bans cracks down on these devices and their capacity for slaughter. Exception is made for law-abiding people with an existing modified weapon, properly-registered. Instead, these devices are limited to military uses, just as they should be."

    BUMP Act

    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Mr Stephens (with thanks to Mr Flake) introduced the following bill A BILL To prohibit the illegal modification of firearms to approximate the action or rate of fire of a machinegun, and for other purposes. Section 1. Short title This Act may be cited as the Banning Unlawful Machinegun Parts Act of 2018 or the BUMP Act. Section 2. Prohibition (a) In general.— (1) It shall be unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, receive, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce— (A) any device primarily designed so that when attached to a semiautomatic firearm— (i) materially increases the rate of fire of the firearm; (ii) approximates the action or rate of fire of a machinegun; or (iii) eliminates the need for the operator of the firearm to make a separate movement for each individual function of the trigger; or (B) any semiautomatic firearm modified with a device in paragraph (A) (2) any person who lawfully owns or possesses a semiautomatic firearm that was modified as described in paragraph (1)(B) before the date of enactment of this section shall register the semiautomatic firearm in accordance with law not later than 180 days after such enactment. Such registration shall become a part of the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record. (b) Exceptions.— (1) Subsection (a)(1) does not apply to any lawful transfer or possession of a semiautomatic firearm registered in accordance with subsection (a)(2). (2) Subsection (a) does not apply with respect to the importation for, manufacture for, sale to, transfer to, or possession by or under the authority of, the United States; or any department or agency thereof; or a State, or a department, agency, or political subdivision thereof. Section 3. Definition The term “semiautomatic firearm” means any firearm that— (a) uses a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge to extract the fired cartridge case and chamber the next shell or round; (b) requires a separate function of the trigger to fire each cartridge; and (c) is not a machinegun.
