Backdoor gun grab/control via “emergency orders”

Every gun-grabber’s dream: Use the Wuhan virus as an excuse to suspend your Second Amendment rights. See the following examples:

Los Angeles: “LA County Sheriff tells me he is beginning to close county gun stores immediately. Deputies are currently going to the stores one by one to order them shut down. Sheriff to utilize scofflaw violations for any gun store still open after he deemed them nonessential.

The Sheriff told me he is a gun owner himself, supports 2nd amendment, but believes too many first time buyers are panicking and bringing guns into homes where people are locked down, which he believes is recipe for disaster with potential accidental shootings.”

(The stores in Burbank are going to remain open because they facilitate security needs. They were ordered to close on Saturday, but the city revised it today.)

Pennsylvania: “Big news: PA Governor Tom Wolf has issued new guidelines that will allow gun stores to remain open across the state, as long as they follow specific social distancing mandates.

The governor’s order is very close to the ideas offered up by three state Supreme Court justices in their dissenting opinion in a suit challenging the governor’s original declaration about “essential” businesses.

Stores will be allowed to operate by appointment only, with undefined “limited” hours, so it’s not perfect. It’s better, and I hope it can be continued to be improved to ensure Pennsylvanians access to their rights.”

North Carolina: “Wake County Sheriff’s Office just suspended ALL pistol permit applications due to “unprecedented demand for weapons.” They will not reopen applications in Wake county until APRIL 30th. They say they’ve seen a 250% increase in demand.”

New Jersey: “New Jersey governor Phil Murphy has ordered all gun stores in the state to remain closed during the declared state of emergency over the coronavirus.”

Apparently gun-grabbers believe gun stores are “non essential” businesses and that an “increase in demand” means they can suspend your rights. Figures.

And this is WHY we need the Second Amendment to protect ourselves (posted at 9:19 last night): “Police in Yakima, Washington now say they DO NOT KNOW how many inmates have escaped local jail, witnesses report at least 20.”

All but eight are “unaccounted for.”

Watch the video of the inmates (obviously not yet fully processed as they are still in civilian clothing?) escaping here.

Felons Released from Prison So They Won’t Catch the Corona Virus

The BBC has reported that communities across the USA are releasing hundreds of felons from federal, state, county and city lockups due to the Chinese Covid-19 virus pandemic. In addition, judges are said to be working out plea bargaining deals for low-level offenders who have yet to be convicted of their alleged crimes. These alleged criminals will be released without serving time.

The newly released felons include drug dealers, thieves, muggers and so forth. It takes no stretch of the imagination to know these criminals will be able to take up where they left off—prowling the streets, mugging passersby, selling drugs, boosting cars, and invade the homes. One has to wonder just how much social distancing this bunch of losers are going to observe, model citizens that they are (sarc).

From the BBC 3/19/2020:

New York City is releasing “vulnerable” prisoners, the mayor said on Wednesday, days after Los Angeles and Cleveland freed hundreds of inmates.

Prison reform advocates say those in jail are at higher risk of catching and passing on Covid-19.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday that city officials will this week identify individuals for release, including people who were arrested for minor crimes and those most vulnerable to infection due to underlying health problems.

His announcement came hours after a guard and a prisoner tested positive for coronavirus at Rikers Island prison, where disgraced former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, 68, is a high-profile inmate. (Do you wonder if they also checked Weinstein’s cell mate for STD?) Weinstein will be moved to a different state prison, an official said on Wednesday.

Other New York prisons, such as Sing Sing, have had inmates test positive for corona virus and one employee for the state’s corrections department has died from it.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reduced its inmate population by 600 in the last two weeks, officials said on Tuesday.

“Our population within our jails is a vulnerable population just by who they are, where they are located, so we’re protecting that population from potential exposure,” Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters earlier this week.

The LA County jail system is the largest prison system in the world (and rightly so) with an average population of around 22,000 prisoners.

Mr. Villaneuva disclosed that arrests in the county are also down, from an average of 300 per weekend to only 60 in mid-March.

Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where the city of Cleveland is located, has also released hundreds of prisoners due to corona virus concerns.

Judges held emergency hearings through the weekend to work out plea deals and other agreements to allow prisoners to be released early or without serving time.

Several states from New York to California are now banning in-person visitors. A ban on visits led to a deadly prison riot in Italy last week.

Federal agencies will postpone most arrests and deportations during the corona virus crisis.

Prison-reform campaigners (aka bleeding heart liberals) say prisoners face unique risks, due to a lack of hygiene in overcrowded cells and hallways.

Handcuffed people cannot cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze, sinks often lack soap and hand sanitizer is considered contraband due to its alcohol content.

Iran has already released 85,000 people, including political prisoners, in an effort to combat the pandemic. (And yet, the faithful still literally lick the iron bars around their holy shrines one after another.)

The US locks up more of its citizens per capita than any other country, with an estimated 2.3 million people behind bars in federal, state and local prisons.

Some high profile convicts have argued for early release over corona virus fears.

They include President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, 53, financial fraudster Bernie Madoff, 81, and Gilberto Rodriguez-Orejuela, a notorious Colombian drug lord.

It’s All A Joke to Them: Canadian Howie Mandel Wears Hazmat Suit to Hollyweird Gig

Howie obviously missed the memo from Dr. Drew.

Howie Mandel is a judge on the TV show, America’s Got Talent (AGT). He’s also a big germaphobe.

So how did this Canadian decide to show up for work in California the other day? Like this:

Howie made a joke about his outfit. That’s to be expected by someone who suffers from TDS.

This man is worth $40 million, courtesy of his $70,000/per episode paycheck from AGT. He can afford to miss a few days of work if he is REALLY that concerned about the Wuhan Virus.

Yet that wouldn’t allow him the opportunity to run with the demorat narrative, now would it?

San Francisco public defender lashes out at ICE for arresting illegal alien with felony convictions

Mano Raju working hard to defend criminal illegal aliens

California doing their best to protect illegal alien criminals.

From MyFoxChicago: The San Francisco Public Defender on Thursday lashed out at ICE, criticizing federal agents for arresting a San Francisco man as he was on the courthouse steps on his way to a criminal hearing.

Mano Raju said the Election Day arrest was conducted without a judicial warrant and “therefore in violation of state law.”

In an email, Raju’s spokeswoman said the man was taken into custody on a civil immigration violation and is currently being held in ICE detention in California. He will get an administrative hearing and will not get immediately deported.

Raju’s office would not comment on why the man was in court on Tuesday.

Jonathan Moor, an ICE spokesman, identified the man as Alberto Uc Ponce, 43. He sent KTVU a statement saying that the man had three felony convictions for second-degree burglary from 2016, 2017 and 2018. ICE lodged a a detainer on the man in 2018, which was “not honored.”

Moor said the man was arrested by local law enforcement a total of seven times in the past five years, and at least eight detainers have been requested following those arrests.

On Friday, Moor provided an exact accounting of Ponce’s history:

June 22, 2015: convicted of shoplifting in Redwood City
Aug. 3, 2015: convicted of receiving stolen property in San Francisco
Feb. 2, 2016: convicted of second degree burglary
May 11, 2016: convicted of felony second degree burglary in San Francisco
Mar. 7, 2017: convicted of felony second degree burglary in San Francisco
Feb. 25, 2019: convicted of felony second degree burglary in San Francisco
Nov. 29, 2019: the San Francisco Police Department arrested him with second degree burglary, possession of burglary tools and possession of controlled substance. Those charges are pending.

How can this be happening? Mass shooting in California at “celebration of life” event

California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. This includes age restrictions, gun registration, limit on ammunition purchases and red flag laws.

Last year Governor Newsom signed into law an additional 15 new gun control laws. He said at the time: “Gun violence is an epidemic in this country, one that’s been inflamed by the inaction of politicians in Washington. While Washington has refused to act on even the most basic gun safety reforms, California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

How’s that gun control working in California? Yesterday’s headline: 1 Killed and 5 Injured, Including 7-Year-Old Girl, in Shooting at California Family’s ‘Celebration of Life’ Party.”

Details from Yahoo:

“A shooter fired multiple rounds at a gathering of people at an apartment in Tulare, Calif. on Wednesday night, killing one and injuring five others, including a 7-year-old child, according to police.

Tulare Police Sgt. Ed Hinojosa said during a press conference that the suspect opened fire at a “party or some type of celebration of life going on for somebody who was buried today that was apparently involved in a car accident a few days ago.” He added that there were about 50 to 60 people present.

A 23-year-old man has died and five others were injured: two men, two women and the 7-year-old girl, police have confirmed. The girl was being treated for multiple gunshot wounds and had been transported to Valley Children’s Hospitals. As of Thursday morning, no updates on her condition have been provided. The police department did not immediately respond to a request to comment from TIME.

As mourners left the apartment, the shooter approached a group outside in a front driveway, and opened fire. “We were all dancing, listening to music and drinking and the only thing I remember is hearing one shot, and then after that we heard like 10 rounds,” an eyewitness told ABC7 News. “Then everyone dropped to the floor and then we just heard screaming. Then after that everyone ran inside.”

“There was blood everywhere,” another eyewitness told local newspaper The Visalia Times Delta.

Hinojosa said police arrived to a “chaotic” scene after receiving several calls around 10:30 p.m. reporting multiple gunshots fired. He did not elaborate on a description of the shooter, but speculated that the incident could be gang-related.”

Restorative justice in SF: DA Boudin drops charges against one suspect in viral attack on Asian man

Apparently the victim decided restorative justice was the best outcome for this case. I’m sure no influence was put upon him…

From SF Gate: San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is withdrawing charges against one of the two suspects arrested in connection to a shocking viral video that shows an Asian man being robbed.

Twenty-year-old Dwayne Grayson, who police say recorded and uploaded the disturbing clip to social media, will no longer be charged with elder abuse, and will instead face “restorative justice,” which involves rehabilitation and reconciliation with victims.

“We’ve been in conversation with the victim who expressed interest in a restorative justice outcome in this case,” Alex Bastian, a spokesperson for the DA’s office, told The Chronicle. “Specifically, against the young person who videoed the incident. We respect victims and their desires and we will explore a restorative justice outcome.

Grayson was also suspected of violating probation for battery.

Earlier Monday, police arrested 56-year-old Jonathan Amerson, the person suspected of hitting the victim with a metal pole. He was charged with robbery and elder abuse, and is also suspected of robbing the same victim of his recyclables about two months ago in the same area.

Read the whole story here.

There’s almost 500 comments on this article, the majority of which are not positive. Too little, too late demorats. You gotta learn the hard way:

Santa Clara County DA’s office “gun grab” will have zero effect on gun violence.

Santa Clara County DA’s office “gun grab” will have zero effect on gun violence.  It’s just a “con job” to take guns from legal owner’s.

This is a follow up on DCG’s post Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders.

The DA’s office of Santa Clara County(pop. 1,922,200) in  California has made the decision to remove firearms from “dangerous offenders”.  Besides felons they have included persons with restraining orders and people with a history of domestic violence.

Restraining orders– Anyone can get a emergency restraining order on anyone.  All a person needs to do is say “I think the person has a gun” when filing the restraining order.  Then by default, once the restraining order is filed, the person who is being restrained is supposed to sell their guns or turn them over to the police.  It does not matter if the person filing is making a false report.  The person still cannot be in possession  of a firearm.  They lose their gun ownership rights from 1 year up to 10 years, if not more.

The person is being punished for a crime they have not been convicted of. Guilty before proven innocent instead of Innocent until proven guilty.  They lose their gun ownership right and are being deprived of their rights. I would argue that this is a violation of  2nd, 5th and 14th amendments.

Domestic violence- Usually comes with a restraining order.  Domestic violence can be a felony or a misdemeanor.  Some common charges that fall under domestic violence are,

When a person who is charged for Domestic violence and has not been convicted, their rights are being violated in the same way as the person with a simple restraining order. The person is being punished for a crime they have not been convicted of. Guilty before proven innocent instead of Innocent until proven guilty.  They lose their gun ownership right and are being deprived of their rights. I would argue that this is a violation of  2nd, 5th and 14th amendments.

Felons- Don’t usually register guns so there is no way this move on taking guns from dangerous people will have any impact of felons having firearms.  The gun grab only takes guns from legal owners.

Gun owners associated with Domestic violence are being treated as a major threat to public safety.  We are being lead to believe that a large amount of firearm related deaths are the result of domestic violence.  We are being lead to believe that  taking guns from people accused or convicted  of domestic violence will end a large part of firearm deaths.  In California that just isn’t true.  The following is a quote from the L.A. Times after reviewing Los Angeles County(pop. 10,098,052)  Coroner’s records for 2018.

“Women are less likely than men to be killed in a shooting, but more likely to be beaten, stabbed or strangled. Female homicide victims also tend to be older, with a median age of 35, compared with 31 years old for men.”

“Last year, 114 women were killed in Los Angeles County, the highest number since the beginning of the decade, according to a Times analysis of coroner and law enforcement records. Meanwhile, the death toll for men, who make up the vast majority of casualties, declined dramatically to 523 from 755 a decade earlier.”

Considering there are at least 5,000,000 women is LA County, that number is still pretty low.  Overall, the amount of Homicides in LA county has declined.

In LA county almost 300 women have been killed in the last 3 years.  Almost half of them had a relationship with their killer at some point in time.

Here are some facts on the USA in 2017.

  • 2017 total population in the USA- 325,719,178
  • Total deaths- 2,813,503. Men 1,439,111. Women 1,374,392.
  • Suicide by firearm 23,854. 3,239 were women.,
  • Accidental discharge of firearms – 486. 63 were women.
  • Legal intervention- 616. 30 were women.
  • Assault (homicide) by discharge of firearms- 14,542. 2322  were women.(A little over half domestic violence related.) 
  • Undetermined- 338.

Total deaths connected to firearms- 39,773.  That is 1.41 % of deaths in 2017 with .041% connected to domestic violence where women were victims.

When compared to the total population in the USA,  325,719,178, Domestic violence  related deaths that involve firearms  happens to .00035644201459946% of the total population.  Firearm related deaths happens to .012210825363191% of total population. Both are hardly an excuse to violate a persons rights.

Laws are not going to stop domestic violence in the USA.  Not when you have religions like ISLAM, where beating and cutting the heads off of women is accepted.

Not saying Islam is the single cause of domestic violence. But it’s ideology promotes oppression of women.  This sort of influence  in Western  culture only fuels the opportunity for domestic violence.

Cultural diffusion promoting “old School” western values, teaching your children respect, manners, integrity, accountability, critical thinking, appreciation, compassion, courtesy,  loyalty, patriotism, the law, responsibility and to treat others like they would like to be treated would produce far better results than any gun control law.

 

 

If people are truly concerned with saving lives then they should focus their attention on the causes and cures relevant to deaths in the following images.

Second Amendment,

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

“Shall not be infringed”.  Infringed definition is “to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another”.

That being said,  any changes to the Second Amendment, any modification that allowed any sort of gun control is unconstitutional and illegal.  The simple act of the change or modification  of the Amendment is a violation of our rights.  The changes are the infringement.

 

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot

Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders

I’m all for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. What I’d like to see is stronger enforcement of current gun laws and harsher punishments for prohibited offenders.

Just serving a warrant can be dangerous enough for police. Can you imagine how volatile situations may become when trying to confiscate a violent criminal’s firearm?

LA finally going to solve homeless crisis with “Housing Central Command”

The street of LA…

Like many progressive-run, West coast cities, Los Angeles has had a homeless crisis for many years.

In June 2019, it was announced that the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County jumped 12 percent over the previous year, despite $619 million in government tax spending tax payer dollars to help alleviate the problem.

After spending all that taxpayer money to barely make a dent in their crisis, the bureaucrats have come up with a solution: the creation of a “Housing Central Command” center. Details from Yahoo:

“Los Angeles city and county officials on Tuesday announced a new strategy to speed the process of getting homeless people into permanent housing that is modeled on the federal government’s response to natural disasters.

The creation of a “Housing Central Command” marks an overhaul of how agencies work together in addressing the growing number of people living on the street, according to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.

Previously the system was slowed by red tape and gaps in information showing what housing units were available and who is eligible to move into them, officials said. In some cases there was a waiting period of 10 months from a person being matched to housing to signing a lease.

“Nobody was holding the full picture of resources,” said LAHSA interim executive director Heidi Marston. “Our systems weren’t talking to each other.”

The new initiative uses a “war room model” inspired by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s approach to finding homes for people suddenly displaced by hurricanes, Marston said. Now officials will have access to real-time data showing housing availability as well as funding streams, according to LAHSA.

Since the launch in December, officials have identified some 3,000 potential housing units that were previously not part of the overall inventory, Marston said.

The central command is a major step toward restructuring a response system overseen by LAHSA that also includes housing and development authorities, the mayor’s office and health departments.

“We have a high number of people who need to be rehoused rapidly,” Marson said of the situation in greater Los Angeles, where officials have declared homelessness a state of emergency. Including crisis-response experts on a day-to-day basis shows that officials are treating the problem with the urgency it deserves, she said.

In its 2019 count, the authority reported that there were close to 60,000 homeless people living in LA County, with more than 36,000 of them in the city. All but about 25% live on the streets. Freeway overpasses are lined with tents, and it’s a common sight to see someone pushing a shopping cart filled with belongings through downtown.

According to LAHSA and Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office, an average of 130 homeless people in Los Angeles move into housing daily. However, an average of 150 people become homeless every day. “The homelessness crisis demands an emergency response, and moving the needle means being nimble, flexible and creative with our resources,” Garcetti said in a statement praising the new strategy.

Through the new process, officials also discovered $30 million of a $107 million grant from HUD to Los Angeles in 2017 had gone unspent within a calendar-year deadline, LAHSA said.

That happened because of low vacancy rates and higher market rates than public housing authorities could pay, LAHSA officials said, along with “landlord bias” against tenants with mental disorders or a history of homelessness.

“It is completely unacceptable that housing funds were left unspent when our unsheltered neighbors continue to languish out on the street,” said LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis. The new efforts will leave behind a “disjointed” system and “maximize all of the region’s resources,” she said.”

Read the whole story here.

While HUD Secretary Ben Carson met with Los Angeles officials a week ago to discuss strategies for addressing homelessness in Los Angeles, I’m not holding my breath that the demorats in charge will actually accomplish any major goals. Well, maybe just one: the “discovery” of more unspent taxpayer dollars.

Tolerant left: SF Giants snub Aubrey Huff from 10-year reunion due to his support of President Trump?

The San Francisco Giants have told former player Aubrey Huff that he will not be invited to their ten-year anniversary celebration of their World Series win. The reason?

According to SF Gate, Huff is not invited due to “a series of sexist and vulgar social-media posts.”

More from SF Gate:

“Earlier this month, we reached out to Aubrey Huff to let him know that he will not be included in the upcoming 2010 World Series Championship reunion,” the Giants said in a statement sent to the Chronicle and the Athletic. “Aubrey has made multiple comments on social media that are unacceptable and run counter to the values of our organization. While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision.”

Apparently the sexist comment was the following: Huff mocked the Giants’ hiring of Alyssa Nakken as the first female coach in major league history, tweeting he “couldn’t imagine taking baseball instruction from an ex female softball player. Have fun with that.”

Read the whole story here.

Huff ain’t having none of it. His response that he posted on Twitter (I couldn’t make graphic bigger, click on Twitter link to read original tweet):

Huff is a supporter of President Trump. See his Twitter feed here.

I find it ironic that the SF Giants consider anything Huff has said as “vulgar” considering their city hosts the perverted Folsom Street Fair. Don’t Google that with your safe search “off.”

Trust me (this link is NSFW).

Yet double standards and intolerance are to be expected from the oh-so-tolerant progressives.
