A state that allows pre-teens to take dangerous transgender chemical therapies, undergo permanently disfiguring “gender affirming” surgeries, and lets them choose abortions without parental consent is now looking to “safeguard” kids by banning them from playing tackle football.
The extreme, left-wing California state legislature that is dominated by woke Democrats is once again looking to ban football for kids, despite several past failures to pass such legislation.
The youth tackle football ban (Assembly Bill 734) would ban any child under the age of 12 from joining a tackle football team in schools or private leagues.
According to KCRA-TV, this is the third time that Democrat Assemblyman Kevin McCarty of Sacramento has introduced the bill after two failures. Similar bills introduced in Illinois and New York to ban youth football have also failed to pass.
McCarthy claims there are plenty of other sports for kids but his ban will “save lives.” So, his ban should be a no-brainer.
“There are certain things that just aren’t safe for younger people,” McCarty, a Democrat, told KCRA. “Banging your brains around for little kids just isn’t safe.
“It’s a high school sport. It’s going to be an Olympic sport. There is no way you can do a safe sport of 9, 10 11-year-olds,” McCarty insisted of his effort to save kids from themselves.
Opponents of the bill, though, say they have fought off this ban several times and will keep fighting to defeat it.
“We have had to fight it all three times, and I can tell you we will fight it again,” Jay Erhart, commissioner for Sacramento Youth Football, told the media.
Erhart added that his league has already instituted rules for less contact for younger players and mandated better safety equipment.
“With over 9,000 kids last year, we had less than 20 kids that went into return-to-play protocol for concussions,” he explained.
Erhart blasted the bill for eliminating
