Yes, I’m sure I read that somewhere. One benefit of consulting it from time to time would be that the chaos of the legislative process is a stumbling block to tyranny.

What is it with these folks in CA?

It started with a bag ban, and the styrofoam ban is coming soon. There’s also a law against honking bicyclists.
