1:52 am
he a about an edito a newspaper columnist in texas has found another reason to, quote, despise california. he and some other texans are a bit upset about a cartoon. you check it out. you decide what you think. >> reporter: it's sacramento dollar daily, now getting red in texas, where flags are flying at half-staff following last week's deadly fertilizer explosion. >> how could you do something like that when you know people are hurting? >> reporter: it shows governor rick perry boasting that business is booming in texas, in front of a picture of a massive blast. governor perry responded to the bee with this statement. it was with extreme disappoint i viewed your recent cartoon. while i will always welcome healthy debate, i won't stand
1:53 am
for this. the paper is standing by cartoonist jack omen, who wrote on the paper's website, i am not really trying to be tasteless. i am not. what i am trying to do is get readers to think about an issue in a striking way. perry has been promoting texas as having a better business climate than california with fewer regulations. sacramento constitutional attorney jeff kravetz called the cartoon good journalism. >> this is a serious and important issue. this cartoon used a shocking method to bring people's attention to it. that's what his job is. >> reporter: a stinging commentary. now it's the bee in the headlines. and this cartoon debate isn't over yet. i am told the editorial team is preparing a response to governor perry that will be published in tomorrow's
1:54 am
edition. in sacramento, kpix 5. >> and tonight governor perry is demanding an apology. the cartoonist says he would draw it again without thinking twice. a new survey finds that today's teens don't think it's a big deal to drive while stoned. 34% think weed makes them better drivers. and 41% say pot has no effect at all. but joe vazquez tells us, legally speaking, in california it's a bit hazy. >> this is a strain called blueberry train wreck. >> reporter: how much pot do you have to smoke before you have trouble driving? our cbs station in seattle recently conducted a test where three drivers got high and then drove on a controlled track. turns out, all of them slowed down significantly. when this driver measured seven times washington's legal limit for marijuana, she hit a cone. but the instructor said, actually he's still okay.
1:55 am
>> yeah. >> well, you do drive slower. >> reporter: these teenagers had mixed feelings about the subject but they do believe alcohol is way more dangerous. >> there's a famous saying. it says a stoned driver will stop at a stop sign and wait till it turns drink. a drunk driver will just run that stop sign. and this is the stop sign. it doesn't turn green. >> it has very little effect on the cause of accidents. >> reporter: clint warner is the author of marijuana, gateway to hell. >> some data seems to suggest if people compensate and they're more thoughtful when driving while they're high, then they're driving better. >> one time you get to do this. you should do it! ha ha! yeah! >> reporter: by the end of the test in washington state -- >> oh. i'll do it again. >> reporter: the drivers that
1:56 am
smoked 9/10 of a gram of weed, about two full joints -- >> i am stoned. definitely shouldn't be driving. >> reporter: and they're driving was clearly affected. >> i would say that all three would have been arrested for driving under the influence. >> reporter: i talked to some law enforcement folks tonight who said, you know what? they believe marijuana does slow down your reflexes, so liz, this debate, it's not a new one. it rages on. >> right. it's a big argument here, not one we haven't heard before. how do we settle it? >> reporter: well, there have been studies out there. we'll let the viewers check those out. but we were trying to compare dui's with alcohol with dui's with marijuana. we found something very interesting. prosecutors rarely bring dui's with just marijuana to trial, so it's -- you know, it's very difficult to compare them. >> thank you, joe. well, currently there are what the new york times describe as quiet talks underway in washington to
1:57 am
revive gun-control legislation on the federal level. meanwhile, california already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. so to see how state gun laws really work in practice, we sent christin ayers to the county that's the gun buying capital of california. >> reporter: three hours north of san francisco, and you might as well be a world away. this is shasta county, california, a place where pickup trucks outnumber prius. >> we don't have to deal with the hustle and bustle and somebody yelling in our ears or why we have george w. bush bumper stickers on our bumper five years after the election. >> reporter: shasta county is gun country, a place where longtime gun instructor sissy says it's never too early to buy a kid his first gun. >> i bought a shotgun for this baby before he was even born as
1:58 am
a baby shower gift. >> reporter: shasta county has the highest number of gun sales per 1,000 people in the state. it's a place where gun control and gun ownership coexist, though not quite peacefully. >> i don't think we need any more restrictions. >> reporter: that's the consensus here in the old west, where young and old come to talk pistols and politics. jude smith has a 22 caliber rifle, knowing full well she won't walk out of the store with it. >> you knew you were going to have to wait ten days to come back and pick it one? how do you feel about that? >> do you want bother -- doesn't bother me at all. >> reporter: what does bother here is a whole host of other restrictions. >> you'd have to answer these 23 questions correctly. once that was done, you fill out a federal form. when you finish that form, i'll go back and start your state
1:59 am
paperwork. >> reporter: they are steps that don't exist in states like texas or idaho. shasta county is something of a gun-control guinea pig, a glimpse of the impact that new federal gun-control laws could have on gun-loving states nationwide. but the laws have done nothing to dampen a passion for firearms. >> we had about 2300 concealed carry licenses or permits in shasta county in 2006. right now we have about 43-, 4400. >> it's a 22 caliber. >> reporter: at the public firing range, an instructor eagerly gave me my first shooting lesson. >> perfect! >> reporter: gun sales are booming at old west, up more than 50% since december, with a raft of new state gun-control laws pending. it's a sign that gun culture can still thrive in the face of gun control, even as fears linger in this gun capital that firearm freedoms are being chipped away.
