California Gun Safety Confusion!

LA Times reports California’s Gun Safety Sham is real!

California has just passed legislation that would reduce criminal sentences associated with gun crimes while at the same time passing legislation to strengthen gun control laws. Makes sense, right?

Via LA Daily News:

California lawmakers love gun control. Gov. Jerry Brown signed no less than six different bills designed to restrict gun and ammunition sales in the Golden State last year alone, and a number of the leading candidates to replace him as governor are running on a platform of even more regulation.

There’s not an aspect of legal gun ownership that isn’t in their crosshairs, so to speak.

But at the very same time that Sacramento politicians want to punish legal gun owners, these same lawmakers just passed Senate Bill 620 — which would strip mandatory sentencing enhancements for criminals convicted of committing a felony with a gun.

After all, why waste valuable prison space on somebody who robbed a liquor store with a sawed-off shotgun when we clearly need it for the dangerous lunatics who use the wrong gender pronouns?

Priorities, please!

This totally insane legislation joins Propositions 47 and 57 and Assembly Bill 109, which together are attempting to systematically empty the jails of as many criminals as possible.

According to Eric W. Siddall, vice president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys in Los Angeles County, the recidivism rate hovers around 70 percent in California.
