Santa, Please Bring Mommy an Assault Rifle

Santa, Please Bring Mommy an Assault Rifle

Momservation: Setting a good example for your kids doesn’t mean target shooting with an assault weapon.

Someone please tell me why a suburban mother needs an assault rifle.

And being a “gun enthusiast” is a hollow explanation reverberating against the sobs of parents.

Congressional candidates agree to first formal debate

Congressional candidates agree to first formal debate

Sacramento, CA – Congressional candidates Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Gold River, and his Democratic challenger, Ami Bera, an Elk Grove doctor, have agreed to participate in a live debate at News 10 studios on Tuesday, Sept. 25.  It will be sponsored by The Sacramento Bee, News10 and Capital Public Radio, and will be the first formal debate between the candidates.

Each media outlet plans to stream the debate live at 3 p.m. on their individual websites. The next day, The Bee will publish a story in its Wednesday newspaper; News10 will air the debate at 9 a.m. and Capital Public Radio will broadcast it at 10 a.m. on “Insight.”

The 7th Congressional District is considered one of the most competitive and closely watched House races in the nation, with national party organizations and other outside groups expected to contribute substantially to their respective candidates.

Sharon Ito's blog: Congressional candidate Ami Bera's turn

Sharon Ito's blog: Democratic congressional candidate Dr. Ami Bera brought a congenial style to his studio interview on News10 at 9 a.m., though the last campaign with Republican incumbent Dan Lungren was a bruiser.

The way Lungren remembered it when he was our show the week before, Bera's campaign was "mostly attacks." Bera told us there were "attacks on both sides," but like Lungren he wants a higher level of dialogue this time around. Maybe when the men debate on our show in the coming months, we'll see a civil exchange. Their ad campaigns may be a different story.

This is a high profile and highly competitive race; both parties are heavily invested in this election since it could change the balance of power in the House. The 7th Congressional District has been redrawn and includes a greater swath of Elk Grove, and as a result leans more independent and democratic.
