A majority of California Assembly members and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom are calling for the head of the state Fish and Game Commission, Dan Richards, to resign after he was photographed posing with a mountain lion he killed in Idaho. It's legal to kill mountain lions in that state, but not in California -- and critics say the head of the wildlife commission is sending the wrong message. Should Richards resign?
