So Arnold signs AB50, which will cost California jobs. How many jobs? I don't know, but EDM is moving out of state, and presumably they will start buying from out-of-state suppliers. I imagine there are other losses that will be directly attributable to AB50 as well.

Now Arnold is impressed with himself because a printing company is moving ten - that's right, TEN - jobs into California. Yay Arnold.

LA VERNE, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger rolled up to a warehouse today in a custom-painted moving van to announce a sign-printing company was closing its doors in Las Vegas and bringing its jobs to California.

All 10 of them.

``This is the first company that is moving back to California, bringing jobs back to California,'' Schwarzenegger said, standing beside Candice Doi, owner of the Lynch Sign Co.

``We have hope again in California,'' the governor said. ``We are all into creating action and creating jobs.''

Last month, Schwarzenegger boasted that if a company was willing to relocate to California, he would get a truck and move them.

Where is the press release that says EDM is leaving the PDRK?

Will EDM cease sales to PDRK law enforcement agencies?

He doesn't say anything about stopping sales to California LE, but it's a logical inference.

I'm glad he has chosen to leave. I'm sure his business generates more taxes and business than a sign making business.

It will make it easier for him to refuse to service weapons sold to PDRK law enforcement agencies if his operations are elsewhere.

I could be wrong, but the way I read AB-50, he's got a choice of leaving or shutting down. It will shortly be illegal to "manufacture or cause to be manufactured...".

I guess he could just drop the .50's from the line and stay put.

I wouldn't be surprised if at least one North Texas chamber of commerce is already circling Redlands like a buzzard. Bill Ritchie's got 15 jobs.

Please stop using me and that word in the same sentence, ok? Thanks! :)

And no, I don't want Gray back. I just think it's a little hypocritical of Arnold to be making a big deal about attracting TEN jobs to California when he signed a bill that, in addition to NOT preventing any crimes, and making criminals out of hundreds if not thousands of otherwise law-abiding Californians, is driving jobs and tax revenue out of the state.
