Safer Streets 2010: Attention Kalifornia State Legislature.
April 19, 7:41 AMLA Gun Rights ExaminerJohn

I'd hold off on that next gun ban in California. It's the type of pattern and practice that puts the K in Kalifornia and parallels World War II European thinking. Incremental abuses of law. As if smear weren't bad enough, Kalifornia now wants to confiscate more guns by repealing a law that never hurt anyone: the open carry of an unloaded handgun by a law-abiding adult taxpayer.

Kalifornia's not worried about blood in the streets from armed honest citizens, she is worried about the cold-blooded disarmament of the law-abiding who have learned that they cannot count on public servants. I'll say for the umpteenth time that police have no duty to protect individuals from the criminal acts of others.

A report from the Mercury News on this: "Officers are taught from Day 1 in the academy that guns are a threat," said [Emeryville Police Chief] James, whose association is sponsoring the bill. "This open carry places officers in a position between a rock and a hard spot."

This mis-frames the issue as a law enforcement officer-safety question and totally disregards the issues as a freedom question of the sovereign people in the absence of police. Where someone is armed and can de-escalate a violent act, it's usually over by the time police arrive. Blocking this ability and authority to stop a crime in progress is that pattern and practice of public servants: to hell with your rights, because we say so.

Police have little to fear from guns, they have a lot to fear from criminals who have guns, and so far, public servants have no decent track record of keeping guns from already prohibited persons. That tells the people that gun bans don't work. Beat officers see it differently; they seem to be able to discern the legal guns in the hands of allies of law enforcement and guns in the hands of criminals.

Think November.

Silicon Valley MercuryNews.com writer Samantha Young's report makes one mistake: it consults public servants on how much liberty and authority the people have. It assumes that we need permission from them to carry a gun. It assumes that gun owners need to convince them. Who told them that? Who told her that?

The battle is not about showing cause or convincing servants on one side of a two-sided issue, but educating and reminding the public servants of what they may not legally do to begin with. There is no two sides as to who is in charge in this country: we are. Americans do not challenge their servants' authority: we gave it to them and only on our terms! But in their over-reach, in violating our terms, they exceed their authority and it is they who challenge the people! There is no two sides to this.

"What I'm concerned about is people who have no training can carry a gun for no other purpose than to make a public statement," said the bill's author Democratic Assemblywoman Lori Saldana of San Diego. Madam Assemblywoman, you have no idea what sort of training an individual citizen has. It is smear to say for publication that people who carry a gun have no training. It is misleading, because in this country, not only are we free to carry a gun, but millions obtain training.

You came to Sacramento with no training, didn't you? The answer is that you do not need training to serve in the capacity of Assembly Person. That's the way America wants it. You don't need training to make a public statement.

Oh, she was talking about training for the gun??? Oh, well, that I get. When it comes to putting the K in Kalifornia, officials choose smear. Smear is in this year. Many, many gun owners do obtain training; classes held by police officers, the FBI and military personnel as much as private instructors, each of whom believes that the Assemby is wrong. Training is reasonably priced and held all over the place. You can't karp with any kredibility that gun owners on the one hand are only making a statement (their fundamental right) and at the same time smear that they have no training to carry a gun (also a fundamental right). But, as smear often does, it ignores fundamental rights all around: citizens can carry and they can make a statement by carrying if they like. Writing a law smearing them so is a rather obvious equivalent of silencing citizens. Pure contempt for the electorate.

California gun owners (the people who want to put the Vitamin C in California) already obtain training without having to be reminded by servants. Vitamin C is for Constitution. It can put the sunshine of C back in California.

I heard this morning on the radio talk show host Bill Handel [Los Angeles KFI / 640] castigated by listeners because he said that the Military swears allegiance to the Commander-in-Chief. He was upbraided by sharp alert listeners because the Military swears allegiance to the Constitution.

Don't we all? That would mean no gun laws. It would mean that officials need to be reminded of this. It would also mean that we do not consult public servants on how much liberty and authority we have; we tell them what authority they do not have.

Why, then, is it wrong to be Constitutionalist? It isn't. What we need is less servant control of the people and more people control of the servants.

What servants are really afraid of is not being needed. But as long as you can smear freedom, it is a case of the servant control of the sovereign.

Think November.

Hi Folks,

Gee, didn't anyone tell Ms. Saldana that the law requires anyone purchasing a hand gun to demonstrate that they can safely handle that gun and know the basic function of it? All this before the dealer says: "go in peace my child, choose your target wisely".

Best to all,
