    Oakland's KTVU.com has posted a video of an open carry debate hosted by the Commonwealth Club in the East Bay city of Lafayette. At the end of it, we learn that CA Assembly member Lori Saldaña, author of a bill to ban the practice of open carry in California, travels under the protection of an armed security detail.

    . . .


    Come we now to the focus of this piece, Lori Saldaña, a politician who is working to ensure you] have no choice when it comes to armed personal defense. Saldana claims "it's really about intimidation" and "a real mistrust of law enforcement."

    It's not that the irony of cops being the "Only Ones" armed (aside from criminals, of course) escapes her, it's that she doesn't care. She's got hers and intends to keep it that way as we learn she is traveling with an armed security detail because, as with testifying in a protective vest (see photo, above), it creates great media theater and provides an instant visual that her political opponents must be violent armed extremists.

    Her justification for the armed escort? She's become a "lightning rod" and "she's had to step up her personal protection."

    And if you have to "step up" yours?

    There is no surprise here. She does not trust average, law-abiding citizens with guns because she believes that if we disagree with her philosophically we would be willing to shoot her.
    Perhaps because that is what she would be willing to do?
    I am beginning to believe that the "progressive" mind-set is truly a form of insanity.

    Bingo, projection.

    That, and pretending to be scared of something for no reason implies that danger actually exists.

    It's just like having a little sister that pretends you hit her to get you in trouble.

    Scream and yell "ouch" then start crying, when you weren't even in the room!

    She's not a lightning rod, she's sh!t on a stick. They don't get much lower.
