CA Reduces Sentences for Use of a Gun:  Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law that allows judges to give a shorter sentence to criminals who use a gun during a crime.  The Deputy District Attorneys Association of Los Angeles reports that SB 620 would eliminate the mandatory sentence enhancement for criminal use of a firearm.  The poster boy Senator Steven Bradford used to promote his bill was Denzel Crisp who, for no reason, fired multiple shots into a crowd at a party, injuring one.  Senator Bradford and Governor Brown believe that because nobody was killed, an increased sentence for shooting into a crowd is too harsh.

Is this how democrat politicians fight the NRA, by reducing penalties for
illegally using guns?

Or is this their new "reverse psychology" appoach to multiple crimes?

Knowingly exposing others to HIV is no longer a felony in California ...
Eli Rosenberg | October 10, 2017 | WashPost
"California lawmakers have passed legislation to reduce the penalty for those who knowingly or intentionally expose others to HIV without their knowledge, rolling
back a law that mostly affected sex workers. ... The act of knowingly donating
HIV-infected blood, also a felony now, will be decriminalized."
