Never go Full California on Guns

California has an A+ rating by the gun control lobby. You probably can’t name a gun control proposal the California Socialists haven’t passed.   Of course, these laws only disarm honest people and have no effect on violent crime.  In fact, after the latest violent muslim killed his wife in Minnesota and then shot his university professor in California, the California Socialists called for MORE gun control.

Never go full California.   No matter the problem, bigger government is always the California solution.   There are 23 thousand firearms laws. Those laws don’t stop criminals. Those gun laws do give us a long legislative record.  I predict the next California gun laws won’t prevent violence either.

That prediction should be obvious to anyone who looks at the record.  Bigoted gun laws fail in city after city.  New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles should each be a non-violent paradise if bigoted gun laws really worked.  These cities are among our most violent.

If bigoted gun control laws worked on a state by state basis, then Washington DC and Maryland should be crime free.  They aren’t, and it isn’t close.

Bigoted gun laws fail on a national scale.  Russia, Mexico and Brazil should be a crime free paradise rather than some of the world’s most violent countries if gun control really worked.

You see, failure it isn’t a matter of size.  Criminals break laws, while honest civilians follow the law.  Bigoted gun laws disarm the innocent victims, not the thugs.  That is a fact everywhere.  Meanwhile, the Socialist politicians in California continue to blame the victim.

The bigots cry that, “This next law might save one life?”

The fawning news media never asks if the law would work.  Even a casual examination of the record shows that the next gun law wouldn’t have stopped any of California’s mass murderers.  The California bigots are selling superstition.13black-magic
“But we have to do something!”

If we’re looking for a superstitious ritual, then I propose we have one Socialists politician urinate on the front steps of the California Teachers Association.  That is the same thing as a human sacrifice since the body will soon disappear from Sacramento in either case.  If my ritual doesn’t stop violent crime, then do the same with two Socialists politicians.

Hey, sometimes you have to take one for the team.. and it might save one life.

California, with its growing crime rates, is a model for all of us.. a model of what NOT to do.   California Socialists hate gun owners and the latest California gun laws are political theater in an election year.

Learn from others’ mistakes.. and never go full California.

Fleeing California only makes it a ‘softer target’ for Mexico’s secret war of attrition. However I don’t believe a Democrat President would cede the ‘territory’ to Mexico because California comprises one of the largest Liberal Democrat voter blocs. LOL


The other reason of why California is a criminal’s paradise is that they are under federal court order to reduce overcrowding. Here’s the typical scenario, a criminal stabs your significant other, a year later he is sentenced to 10 years in prison for Assault With A Deadly Weapon, and he has prior convictions as well. So you walk out of the sentencing hearing thinking that justice has been served. 18 months later you see that felon walking the streets a free man. The reason? Regardless of what a person is sentenced to, once the California Bureau Of Prisons takes custody… Read more »

I believe one reason they’re overcrowded is they function as if rehabilitation works. If prisons were advertised as places of punishment, they’d serve as a deterrent. That would eliminate the casual criminal. Of course the best deterrent is a polite but determined and armed society.


the only “punishment” criminals really fear is an armed and skilled citizen. But, we all know, in California that is a rare beast, a member of a declining population. Those smart enough to want to go about their daily business and keep at home whilst armed are also smart enough to up stakes and flee that socialist paradise.
