Thanks to Dem Lawmakers, California Sees Significant Rise in Violent Crime

While violent crime across the country continues to decline, like it has for decades, it has actually risen in California, and not by a small margin.  According to the FBI, California saw a 12% rise in violent crime.

Hmmm, let me see, what could possibly be the cause of this?

Could it be Prop 47?

Could it be AB 109?

The liberals in charge wrote those laws, laws that claimed to have the goal of making society safer, but instead released thousands of prison inmates, and decriminalized all sorts of crimes, making it impossible for the cops to lock up criminals.  Could it be those liberal lawmakers either 1) don’t have a damn clue what they are doing or 2) know exactly what they are doing and are doing it to try and push more, stricter gun control laws?

I’ll tell you what though, it sure as hell was not the cops.  No current chief LEO anywhere in the state supported either of those laws, and many cops across the state spoke out, loudly, in opposition of them both, myself included.  What do you know; the cops might actually know a thing or two about reducing crime…

Not to say I told you so, but HOLY CRAP, I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!

    You are spot on deputy Matt!

    Well Matt, when the second amendment was written the idea was that citizens should have the right to arm themselves BUT there were only simple guns and rifles.
    Now there are machine guns and other weapons that are dangerous to everyone.
    So do not use the 2nd amendment to advocate that ALL WEAPONS should be allowed for all citizens.
    YOU have a limited interpretation of the law.

    If people regardless of being right or wrong at the moment would just do what the guy with the gun is telling nobody would get shot without doing anything stupid. Once you get your free ride Dow town the situation can be straightened out one way or another and then if you did not do something stupid everybody can go home to there family that night , or at least one deserving person can abd the other will get a nice meal and good nights sleep
