ALERT: Senate Education Committee Passes Anti Gun Research Bill
Earlier today, the Senate Education Committee passed SB 1006, with the only no votes coming from the two Republican members.
The bill, authored by Senator Lois Wolk (D-Davis) seeks to establish the California Firearm Violence Research Center within the University of California (UC) system.
A couple of things struck me about this CA bill moving forward: ONE being that politically/agenda driven “Research Centers” are COMPLETELY unable to think freely (which is precisely the point); and TWO that State-Funded Institutions have a way of NEVER going away or diminishing as Administrators and Bureaucrats are incentivized to spend their budgets on personnel and empire-building since the “research” is a foregone conclusion anyway; and THREE, that what do you want to bet there will be some Fascist-Feminist Glaciation Expert telling the new California Firearm Violence Research Center Diversity Committee that they must inevitably produce an “educational” paper with the proper “People Of Color and the Feminist Perspective,” or else they will CERTAINLY be attacked by Social Justice Warriors.
Opposition is Here.
