Could someone please explain to me how a sign that says “Gun Free Zone’’ makes us safer from criminals?
There are laws against brandishing and firing weapons in the city limits. There are laws against shooting at people or possession of a firearm and/or ammunition by a minor or convicted felon.
If we continue down this path of making more laws, my concern is that the bad guys will be better armed than the good guys . We are also letting them know that they probably won’t encounter much resistance until law enforcement arrives.
There is also the fear that if California outlaws most semi-automatic rifles and handguns, lawmakers will continue chipping away at our Second Amendment rights, which when lost, will be gone forever.
Never miss a local story.
