Also according to the article:Given the dire economic outlook we are facing as a State and the resulting conditions that have a clearly demonstrated detrimental effect on public safety (Open Carry advocates have never once committed a violent crime in the entire 160-year history of California and any perceived threat that the Open Carry Movement presents is, therefore, purely speculative conjecture), is now the time to make sure that only violent criminals will be armed while leaving all common, law-abiding citizens completely unarmed and defenseless in a public setting?
CA is releasing over 13,000 felons this year.
In 2009 more than 1000 LEOs were laid off. More in 2010.
How can the Brady Bunch look at those numbers, and that quote, and still claim that being defenseless against criminals is good?
