Washington Post: These California agents are coming for your guns
Snappy headline. And timely, too.
And as an added bonus, foreign nationals (with no background check, entry inspection, or visa) are officially welcome to enter the State of California and are and harbored from ICE and the USBP by State authorities (the State Attorney General has threatened to prosecute anybody who cooperates with ICE), all the while the CA DoJ six-person gendarme squad is going door to door looking for guns.
Granted, I support removing firearms from felons. Makes sense. Good move. But the level of effort here seems unserious. Six officers - for the entire State of California? They will realistically need hundreds of agents to be effective. And MRAP’s, too.
And I would also observe that recent mass shootings caused by the bloodthirsty NRA (in Parkland Florida, Sutherland Springs Texas, Charleston SC) all were preventable, had our government institutions done their job, and followed current law.
Clearly, what the Progressive Left and media (I know, I repeat myself here) are clamoring for, and what we desperately need, are more legal restrictions on firearms, because the current law is not enforced by those entrusted to enforce it.
But after reading the piece in WaPo, I would take a step back and wonder why the Governor Jerry Brown and the benevolent legislature in Sacramento,
• pardoned convicted Illegal aliens to prevent their deportation,
• pushed early release of violent felons from prison,
• now registers anyone with a driver’s license (including illegal aliens) to vote.
Remember, the US Federal Constitution requires the census only to count people residing in the States (not US Citizens), and therefore each illegal alien is not only a potential voter, but added representation in Washington DC. Those poor rubes in North and South Dakota are each stuck with only one measly Representative. Iowa only has four Representatives in the US House. They would otherwise have more (representatives in DC) if it were not for the non-citizens residing in California.
It would seem that (in California) the law is a tool, to be used to achieve your Progressive Left agenda of building liberty snuffing, wealth transfer (Progressive Left Socialist) paradise, with an out-sized political influence in DC.
Public safety does not enter into it.
It's politics, all the way down.
