That fundamental principle was valid when our laws were based on the common sense understanding of right and wrong. Many of the current California gun laws are based on irrational emotion, and a policy to discourage the public from engaging in activities involving firearms.

don't have a complete understanding of it.
This is why I do not get angry at a law enforcement officer
or gun store employee that has a misunderstanding of the law.
