California Presses Forward to Outlaw Self-Defense in the Form of "Gun Control"
The statistics are not in California's favor, as states with higher rates of legal gun ownership and less restrictions continue to enjoy lower levels of crime.
Nevertheless, California pushes ahead with its clumsy attempt to disarm the law-abiding population, and by extension, take away their right to self-defense. Fox News reports:
When a leftist state like California passes laws to restrict even the number of rounds allowed in a magazine (despite virtually no evidence supporting its efficacy), law makers are not targeting criminals. They are targeting law-abiding citizens.
Ask yourself two things honestly. From the perspective of a criminal:
- Would you rather target someone for a crime in a state where they're likely to be armed or unarmed?
- Would you want to carry a weapon that's been legally "neutered" or illegally unrestricted, so that in the event your victim was legally armed, you'd still retain an advantage?
In their quest for more power and control, leftists like to ignore inconvenient truths. Such was the case of disgraced former-Senator Leland Yee (D-CA), who was hailed for pushing increasingly restrictive gun legislation, only to be arrested for illegally selling the same weapons he campaigned against.
The leftist power structure Yee left behind after being removed from office in 2015 carries on his legacy. If this trend persists and crime continues to run rampant, it will only be a matter of time before California becomes completely uninhabitable.
