    CA cops contribute to illegal arms trade

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/09/26...0-weapons.html

    California law doesn't require officers to report lost or stolen weapons, but departments voluntarily report missing guns to a state database.
    A more in depth article: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/p...pons-guns.html

    Southern California police agencies regularly lose track of all manner of firearms, from high-powered rifles and grenade launchers to standard service handguns weapons that often wind up on the street.
    - emphasis mine.

    And the law makers are worried about us LAC's???
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

My assumption is that we are likely talking about 37mm tear gas launchers, for which real explosive "grenades" are very difficult to make/obtain. Not that tear gas launchers should be stolen either, but the media is probably purposely making us picture Hollywood explosions from them.

    I have got to tour southern California. I have never seen any firearm on the street. No rifles, no pistols, and dang sure no grenade launchers. Who are the lucky people who find these things just lying around on the street? Its certainly never been me.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I was acquainted with the owner-captain of the Ludicriss that proudly displayed his evil black shotgun filled with 12 ga. flare and star shot. It would put on an impressive display.

    See N. N. Taleb's Ludic Fallacy, the belief that reality necessarily follows rules.
