Southern California –-(Ammoland.com) In California we have to embrace political corruption.
TV and newspapers have stopped condemning government waste and fraud. The press wants to sell happy stories and the legislature knows it.
This is an election year so legislators are eager to see their name in print. The legislature will pass any bill the press will promote. Unfortunately the press will promote almost any gun control measure after the last narcissistic psycho-killer beat, stabbed, shot and ran over some white college students in Santa Barbara. The latest crazy proposals from the California legislature are an array of gun violence restraining orders. This legislation gets the politicians the campaign donations he wants. It works for the media since anti-gun bigotry is such an easy sell in California.
Here is the upside. We can use these corrupt laws to our advantage. We finally have legislation that keeps the crazies out of public office!
New legislation allows a police officer to call a judge and collect all your firearms and ammunition. They say they need reasonable cause. In fact, all they need is an accusation from an immediate family member, from anyone in California law enforcement, or from any licensed mental health professional.
We’ve heard about “reasonable cause” before. Legislators said they need reasonable cause for the no-knock raids that kick in the front door at the wrong address. We’ve seen how that works in practice. Technically, a court needs reasonable cause for the charges of domestic violence or sexual assault. In theory, there are penalties for false reporting. In fact, we don’t see prosecutions for false reporting.. at least not in California. For a cop on a mission, it only takes an “anonymous” phone call to establish reasonable cause.
Now we can embrace this corruption. This new anti-gun bill not only confiscates weapons and ammunition from innocent firearms owners, it can bar them from entering sensitive government offices. There it is! Now we have the legislation we need.
We finally have legislation that keeps the crazies out of public office!
You don’t think California legislators are crazy? Some of them tried to sell rocket launchers to terrorists. Those legislators kept their seat in the California Senate! This new bill can prevent that kind of crazy. The bill applies to anyone who even visits California.. like our Representatives and Senators that visit a few days a year for fundraising events. Heaven knows we have enough evidence in the public record to convince any open minded judge there is reasonable cause these legislators present a danger to the public and to themselves. The public record is filled with years of their insane lies. This could be model legislation for all 50 states and territories. All it takes is one honest judge in California.
On second thought, finding one honest judge might not be as easy as it sounds.
