Excellent job Matt.
Well written as always, Matt. I’m going to be more succinct about things. The Yellow Line is when everything changes for me. I won’t wait around for “LE” (God I so despise that term) to kick in my door.
I’ll be visiting the people who make the “yellow line” decisions. And I ain’t Santa Claus....
Will be sending you a private response.
Law enforcement, whether city, county, state, or federal, will be the pointy end of the spear required for gun confiscation. They need to understand that we are counting on them to do the right thing.
I would even emphasize that law enforcement should be taking steps NOW to prevent the worst case scenarios from playing out.
Unfortunately, these same law enforcement officers here in Kalifornia are failing us. The Heller and McDonald decisions need to be incorporated into law-enforcement training.
The right to keep and bear arms is an individual right. It is not to be infringed by any government, whether federal, state, or local.
We have about 68 pages of gun laws here in Kalifornia. I doubt that even one page worth of those laws is Constitutional. One case which has been awaiting its day in court involves a man who has been arrested TWICE, in two different jurisdictions, for violating the unConstitutional Kalifornia "assault weapons" laws. What is especially telling is that both jurisdictions now agree that the man, in fact, DIDN'T violate these infringing laws.
But where is the outcry from the policeman on the street that he should be relieved of any obligation to enforce these laws? There is none.
Where is the outrage from the Chief Law Enforcement Officers of the various jurisdictions in Kalifornia that their officers are being put in jeopardy by the malingering courts who have permitted this tyranny? There is none.
It does not bode well for the future.
Very well put.
We are so far gone that many reading this would not dare post this on social media using our names.
There are a lot of good law enforcement agents, and a lot of fence sitters. "We" are among "them".
bump to self, good read
