John Stoos, a key advisor in the gubernatorial campaign of Republican state Sen. Tom McClintock, has a dream: "I dream of the day when a strong Christian majority is elected to a city council somewhere in America. This council could then pass a resolution declaring that abortion is now illegal in their city," Stoos wrote this year in a conservative religious journal.

For all the hype and anticipation surrounding Arnold Schwarzenegger's appearance on the "Oprah Winfrey Show" on Monday, one moment seemed a bit, well, off message. The Tom McClintock campaign chose the program to debut its 60-second TV spot in the L.A. and San Francisco markets. So while Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, clasped hands and schmoozed with the queen of daytime talk, Republican rival McClintock made a cameo of sorts during the commercial break.

In a showdown reminiscent of last spring's recall election, gun rights advocates were once again squaring off against state Sen. David A. Roberti, whose bill to expand California's assault-weapon ban is up for a do-or-die committee hearing today. Buoyed by their apparent success in targeting other gun-control bills in the final weeks of the Legislature, firearms rights groups notified supporters in a letter to pull out all the stops in telling lawmakers that they oppose Roberti's bill.

As part of a tentative settlement of a lawsuit, the city of Los Angeles has agreed to end its decades-old policy of refusing to issue concealed weapon permits to private citizens. The out-of-court agreement would transfer authority to issue the permits from the Police Commission to Chief Willie L. Williams. The lawsuit claimed that the Police Commission had violated state law by summarily refusing all permit applications.

"A Standoff With No Point" (editorial, July 3) misses the point. The proposed tax increase will cost the average family $120 a year at a time when families are paying higher fuel and power costs that can be attributed to Sacramento. Gov. Gray Davis and the Democrats in the Legislature are proposing a budget that ignores economic reality. They are expanding existing programs and adding new programs while asking us to pay more. Your editorial says we need the budget to provide money for roads.

If at first you don't succeed, try the initiative process. That California truism could soon be the strategy pursued by Assemblyman Tom McClintock, who, after failing to garner support in the Legislature last year for a full repeal of the state's vehicle license fee, is feeling the waters for a statewide ballot drive to accomplish the same goal. McClintock (R-Northridge) is planning to resubmit his constitutional amendment Monday to kill the so-called "car tax."

The rancor among Republican candidates for governor intensified Friday as Tom McClintock described rival Arnold Schwarzenegger as a "vacuum cleaner" for corporate campaign donations and accused the actor of breaking a vow to forgo special-interest money. The rising antagonism comes amid fears by some Republicans that the two will split the party's vote and ensure a GOP defeat in the gubernatorial recall race.

Reporters keep asking Sen. Tom McClintock whether he's going to drop out of the race and clear the track for Arnold Schwarzenegger. And he keeps giving them the same answer: "I'm in this race to the finish. That would be 8 p.m., Oct. 7.... I'm old-fashioned. I believe we should have a campaign first and then let the voters decide who wins. They're perfectly capable. "What's going on here is the country club set wants to make the decision for the people."

Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante is avoiding state restrictions on recall campaign contributions by asking donors to give money to his 2002 reelection campaign committee, which is not subject to the same cap on donations that new campaigns must observe. Bustamante has raised nearly $400,000 in the last month in unlimited contributions to his old campaign committee -- money that he can roll over into his recall campaign. The move circumvents a new law that restricts donations to candidates to $21,200.
