I've been bombarded with texts and spam phone calls from his campaign. I received some flyers from the mail and it says he supports hiring more police officers and wants to get rid of illegal. I'm not sure what that's means

TIMES STAFF WRITER
A ban on the sale of .50-caliber guns passed the Los Angeles Police Commission unanimously Tuesday, the latest in a series of measures designed to ban or limit the availability of weapons and ammunition in the city.

Police could not cite any instances in which the powerful weapons have been used to commit crimes in Los Angeles.

Commission President Rick Caruso said the ban, if passed by the Los Angeles City Council, will ensure that the weapons are harder to find. Such a weapon can pierce concrete from more than 400 yards and inflict damage over far greater distances, commissioners were told.

It's also a poorly kept and well known secret that he donates buttloads of cash to the same Dems, that created the socioeconomic problems. That he is now campaigning to fix as his platform.

Sounds like the stereotypical DemRat to me.

Create a BIG problem. Then PROMISE to fix the problem by spending tax dollars.

Everything you would expect, and yet, if I have to vote between him and what else is on the list, I would put in for him over all the other options.

Absolutely a RINO, won't be doing us any favors other than he may yank the rug out from under all the Prop 47, bail-free-bail, Fund a Pedophile, Give a Gang a Break, "Defund the Police" and Gascon nonsense.

TURD - Rich guy has served on lots of City boards. Builds/owns shopping centers like the Grove and the one across from the old mall in Glendale. His dad was a car dealer who has his license cancelled for being a crook. As a 40+ year LA City Employee and die hard R Don't vote for him. But on the flip side who else is running the current and any past counsel members are a hard pass.

Where did that he is an R or RINO come from?

This is from his website: Rick is a pro-jobs, pro-public safety Democrat ready to fight for a better, safer LA. Add your name to join the movement powering his campaign for a better, safer LA.

HOW ABOUT THIS TID BIT??

RICK CARUSO -- DONALD TRUMP IS PERSONA NON GRATA AT THE GROVE
One of the titans of business in L.A. threw shade on his New York counterpart, telling us Donald Trump is an angry man who is not welcome at the West Coast's premiere shopping mall.

Because he is being endorsed by previous/other RINOs and his campaign is being aimed at registered Republicans, speaking to current Republican concerns about supporting law-enforcement, business, reducing run-away taxes.

My mail box has been full of his campaign fliers since he started; I haven't gotten ANY mailers from ANYONE else - being a registered Republican, it's a sure bet he's trying to target that demographic without actually stating as much.

But is he a Republican? No - he just wants to be coy and give the impression he is without actually putting it in writing in his campaign propaganda. Because he knows that there is no way in hell that any Republicans will even think of voting for any of the other Dem pukes running against him.

I would not vote for Rick Caruso,he is on the same page as Kevin Leon and Karen Bass.

Then who will (or would, if you can't) you be voting for? The options are bleak.

Someone who can't win !

Im not voting I this election, but if I were, I would listen to why he is better than the others .
That said I don't care how crummy LA gets. They hate Me and the feeling is mutual. So much so I used to shop South Coast plaza over LA. My next purchases of that type will be in Florida or other red state .

HELLO, it's Crap O fornia, which has Excremento as a capitol.

There are rarely any good choices.

It's always a choice of which Cerote is less smelly.

Turd

When Karen Bass was caught without her panties, so to speak, when her guns were stolen, Caruso criticized her not as a hypocrite but for having guns in the first place

She’s a dishonest left winger, but at least in her heart she recognizes the value of owning guns

She is a hypocrite and Caruso is calling her out on her hypocrisy. Like it or not, he is the closest one can get to a Republican getting elected in LA.

I can't think of a time I've heard the name Rick Caruso used in a good way. Every time I've heard him mentioned it was something bad.

Even with all the TDS, even the left liked Trump before, and he was generally liked by Americans in general before he ran. But Caruso--does anybody like him?

I would not vote Rick Caruso ! I could conceivably vote Karen Bass which would make that the worst vote of my life , even surpassing my libertarian vote for Richard Boodie who got us Feinstein for at least 3 decades !
