The Bruen Case Is Exposing The Left’s Racism

From The LA Times:

But the governor and lawmakers could fail in their efforts, and the Supreme Court’s ruling could stand. And then, California could be forced to confront a reality that has long made many self-proclaimed liberals uncomfortable: Black people — potentially a lot of us — legally carrying guns in public.

Gun Control Groups Complain That Gun Owners’ Privacy Is Hampering Violence Studies

From Ammoland:

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that lawsuits filed by the National Rifle Association, Second Amendment Foundation and “other gun rights groups” challenging California’s sharing of admittedly “detailed information on gun owners” with researchers is hampering so-called “gun violence studies.”

LA Times Threatened By Citizens Protesting With Guns

From LA Times:

Only in the U.S., and no other civilized democracy, does a supposed right to take up arms against a duly elected government garner a measure of respect from politicians, the courts and the court of public opinion. No tenable reading of the Constitution supports it.

L.A. Times: Mandate Gun Storage

From The L.A. Times:

A study published this week in JAMA Pediatrics reinforces a sobering reality: that far too many minors are gaining access to firearms and either committing suicide or accidentally killing themselves — or others. Last year more than 4,500 children age 17 or younger were killed or wounded with guns. While suicide statistics for 2018 aren’t available, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported a sharp rise in recent youth suicides, about half of which historically have involved a gun.

How is this gun storage law going to be enforced unless the police can do random searches of your home to make sure you are following the law?

LA Times: Australian Gun Control Won’t Work Here

From The LA Times:

Mass shootings get the most attention, but they account for a tiny fraction of total gun deaths in the U.S., data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show. Among the nation’s 36,252 firearms-related fatalities in 2015, 61% were suicides and most of the rest were ordinary homicides.

Neither of those kinds of deaths actually fell in Australia as a result of the National Firearms Agreement, researchers reported Tuesday in the American Journal of Public Health.

LA Times Calls For Banning Firearms Because People “May” Go Crazy

George Skelton writing in the LA Times has this to say about the TSA agent that killed a colleague at LAX:

Problem is, too many citizens are law-abiding until they aren’t anymore.

Murder is already against the law and that TSA agent broke the law when he decided to kill. What does the manner of murder matter? Why don’t we ban automobiles because of the possibility someone might go crazy in the future and run over people. Everyone has the potential for evil, but that doesn’t stop us from choosing to accept those rare and horrific incidents in an open and free society.

The crux of the matter is the anti-gunners don’t care that you and I are law-biding citizens. We may go crazy at any moment and that scares the hell out of them. They don’t want to own guns themselves for protection, so they vote for the government to vicariously take our guns away. They get a false sense of security from this because they believe laws are a cure-all. Never mind the fact that criminals by their very nature ignore the law.
