Los Angeles Sheriff Reverses Course AGAIN!?, Orders Gun Stores to Close to the Public

LA Sheriff Villanueva Statement
LA Sheriff Villanueva's official statement posted on Twitter yesterday.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- LA County Sherriff Alex Villanueva is apparently having a hard time deciding whether or not to follow the supreme law of the land, the US Constitution. While originally, he ordered all gun shops closed to the public, a few days ago he reversed this decision before finally returning to his original anti-gun declaration.

This news comes on the heels of California releasing certain inmates to reduce the likelihood of spreading the Coronavirus. As Sherriff, one would assume Villanueva knows about this. Which should make Americans and Californians wonder what he and his anti-gun cronies are thinking. The NRA has the full rundown below.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva took to twitter to announce he is once again ordering the closure of gun stores to almost all retail traffic. This comes after the closure was announced, then lifted, but is now back in place. The Sheriff issued the below statement, placing extreme limitations on firearm stores and how they can conduct business.

In this case, a single official is unilaterally restricting the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their right to defend themselves and their loved ones. To contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's office to comment, please hit the following link https://lasd.org/commendation-and-complaint-form/ or call (800) 698-TALK. Please do not call an emergency or dispatch number.

“Declaring that American gun owners owe President Donald Trump a “very big thank you,” the Second Amendment Foundation today is cheering the announcement from the Department of Homeland Security defining firearms manufacturers and retailers as “essential businesses.”

And that was just yesterday. My, this virus moves fast. I thought it attacked the lungs, not the brain.

Yet another bought-and-paid-for SOROS county official!! I’m NOT surprised since LA’s District Attorney is another one! Ole georgie soros’s plan to fund local DA’s, Sheriffs, City Attorneys, etc. is something we should ALL pay attention to for every election!

Tyranny under color of corona virus or law. If this virus runs the course it was bread to do there are some rough times ahead. The corona virus is a militarized bioweapon manufactured in Wuhan China. There is no question as to wither you will get the virus or not. The idea is to mitigate it’s effects over a longer period of time so the hospitals will not be overburdened with too many patients at one time. If you have not tried to buy groceries lately you will be surprised as to what is not in store any more. Lack… Read more »

Surprisingly, here in Colorado, DemocRAT Governor Jared Polis ruled that gun stores will stay open for business during this emergency.

A clear violation of his Oath of Office. But, functional literacy is necessary to understand the context of that Oath.

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen, CourageousLion calls for the murder of a public official in the comment section of Ammoland. I wonder what Ammoland thinks of that.

, CL’s intentions are quite clear. Your attempt to twist the meaning by leaving out the “… from about 500 yards.” part is a failure.
CL frequently trys to manipulate others to act in ways that he would not or can not act himself.
Oh, and doctor is a pretty big claim, so doctor of what Ron?

I can think of a few “messages” that can be sent from 500 yds. and beyond, in different calibers, ahem, I mean local flavors. They’d all still say GTFO, STFU, I got you right where I want you, asshole. And you have the right to Kiss My Freedom Loving ASS, you commie! Would certainly do no good if the idiot was already dead. Who’d send such a pointless “message”? Then it would just be UNCIVILIZED target practice. LOL

He closes the gun stores and then releases 1700 convicted criminals from jail. Nothing bad could happen with that scenario. Idiot! It’s California, so it’s not too surprising.

I wonder how many of those convicted criminals had actually committed a crime where a victim was involved.

Now I wonder how many Californians wish they had voted to keep these kinds of idiots out of office. And how many regret that they allowed their rights to be trampled by the shitheads that now run the place they voted for. Same goes for NY, NJ and other Commie-governed States. Sucks to be you right now. Next time you vote, THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE ALLOWING TO HAVE POWER OVER YOURSELVES! You ELECTED them, YOU can EJECT them! They’re only there to serve and protect their own agendas and pockets. NOT YOU! And now some of you can’t even get… Read more »

As most Leftards haven’t the education, they have to be told what to do because they can’t/fail to think on their own, critical thinking as it were and this sheriff is a classic example of that.
