San Jose Mercury News talks to Dr. Paul Song after Governor Brown Vetoes the Lifesaving Intelligent Firearm Enforcement (LIFE) Act in California

The Courage Campaign, a liberal online organizing network that led other groups in holding a candlelight vigil Thursday outside the state Capitol, is “really upset and disappointed with the governor’s vetoes,” Executive Chairman Paul Song said Friday. “It seems to me he was much more concerned about his re-election and pandering to the gun owners rather than the overall safety of California,” Song said. “We hope it does not take another mass shooting for him to realize that he should’ve voted the other way. This is the one state where we didn’t expect the NRA to have as much power as it obviously still does.”
