In CA

Gun owners are the problem, not the criminals. At least, that’s what the legislature seems to think:

Thursday, in a move that absolutely defies the slightest semblance of logic, the Democrat controlled California State Senate passed a measure that will lower the sentences for felons who used a gun in the commission of their crimes. Yes, you read that right. They are reducing sentences for criminals using guns. These are the very same Democrats that constantly create and pass stricter and stricter gun control laws, and who constantly scream, cry and whine about how guns are bad.

    In CA, the intention of gun control laws is NOT to reduce gun violence. It is to inconvenience gun owners (who overwhelmingly tend to be Republicans), so that they leave the state or don’t move here in the first place. It also puts a stigma on gun ownership, which reduces the likelihood that a democrat will pick up a firearm, which they might enjoy, which might lead them to vote republican in the future.

    Just think of gun control as a form of gerrymandering and it makes sense.

    The Progressives have been building their own army of expendable pawns. This is another way of doing it. I’ve been referring to the political authoritarian class as the Criminal Class for a reason. Also; they need more chaos as a cloak for growing their police state. Letting out violent felons, importing jihadists and other anti-Americans, etc., gives them more in that regard.

    Lyle: They are called ‘Colectivos’ in Venezuela. This is the business model the left uses.

  4. Paul Koning Says:

    Scotty, I think you’re insufficiently cynical. A more cynical answer is that the politicians are protecting the criminals — their friends — from the risk of being shot by honest people.

    I approve. This is in reaction to cases like Ronald Thompson and Marissa Alexander, that some of you may be familiar with, where a relatively minor offense is “enhanced” to 25 years in prison because a firearm was used. These enhancement laws are often abused by prosecutors and, in my opinion, serve mostly to enrich the prison industry not take dangerous people off the streets.

    The politicians in California love felons more than they hate guns.

    The democrat retards (but I repeat myself) in Suckramento, aint done anything logical since I was in High School. And was in the early 1970s.

    And Scotty, I agree with you 100%.

    @Lyle, that sounds like a “conspiracy theory” which I think is a fact. Very well said!

  9. Lyle Says:

    Ron W; I don’t how much actual conspiring is required there, verses leftists simply doing what is in their nature to do. I don’t suppose it really matters in the long run. Obviously there is some significant conspiring, otherwise they would have a movement.

    At the same time I believe nk has a point; you can get nailed as a “felon” nowadays for some pretty minor things. Do some little thing that annoys the collectivists, and do it while wearing a gun, and Bingo, you’re a “gun felon”.

    And so it is that the real criminals are becoming harder to distinguish from the more innocent, political prisoners. That’s another feature of authoritarianism– blur the distinctions between right and wrong.

    The Dark Side wants to make you into what they are. They want to make you a criminal, because that would be Social Justice. They want to make you hate black people as much as they hate black people, and other races, because Eugenics. They want to make you poor and desperate, because Economic Justice. It’s built into the psyche.

    Conspiracy comes naturally from that pathological, criminal mind, when two or more of them are gathered together…

  10. Ron W Says:

    Lyle, Once again, I agree! And actually most things, especially in the political realm, happen by “conspiracy” since the definition is something that is planned and carried out by two or more people, as your last sentence aptly states, often with clandestine, evil aspects.

    As admitted: “Nothing in politics happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet that it was planned that way.” –FDR
