Los Angeles County Sheriff Closing All Gun Retailers, Says They Are ‘Not An Essential Function’

 

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has announced that they will be closing all gun retailers as they are “not an essential function.”

Sheriff Villanueva also added 1,300 more deputies to patrol the county and released 1,700 “nonviolent” inmates from county jails since Governor Gavin Newson issued a stay-at-home order in the state.

Speaking to Fox 11, Villanueva claimed to support the Second Amendment, but spewed anti-gun talking points while announcing the gun store shut down.

“We will be closing them, they are not an essential function,” Villanueva said. “I’m a supporter of the 2nd amendment, I’m a gun owner myself, but now you have the mixture of people that are not formerly gun owners and you have a lot more people at home and anytime you introduce a firearm in a home, from what I understand from CDC studies, it increases fourfold the chance that someone is gonna get shot.”

The station reports that he also freed 10% of the inmate population from county jails — nonviolent offenders with misdemeanor sentences that were up within 30 days.

“We’re gonna keep violent felony suspects who are a threat to the community in the jail no matter what,” Villanueva said. “Anybody who has an idea that somehow we’re not going to be hard on crooks out there on the streets, they’re tragically mistaken, there’s twice as many deputies on the street now so the odds of you getting caught are a lot higher.”

Though he has doubled the police patrol, he claims that the National Guard is not active in the county, despite photos posted to social media that show large amounts of military vehicles.

“If we start losing major portions of our sworn personnel, that impacts our ability to man jails or our patrol obligations, and were running out of people to do that, if were in that position typically our counterparts in LAPD they’ll be in the same boat, then we can use the National Guard to start assigning them to security operations,” Villanueva said.

On Monday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied an emergency request that would have blocked the governor’s order to close all gun retailers in the state in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The court ruled on Sunday evening that the gun shops could be closed down, letting the order go into effect on Monday.

The gun shop shut down was part of an order by Democrat Governor Tom Wolf that closed all businesses that are not considered to be “life sustaining.” Gun rights groups argued before the Supreme Court that this should include weapons retailers, but they were denied.

The order shut down the stores on Monday without any timeline for when they can reopen.

 

Liberal-Run Cities Shut Down Gun Sales Using Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic as Excuse

This is an assault on the 2nd Amendment.

By Shane Trejo – 3/19/2020

Cities that are run by liberals are beginning to cut off gun sales, which have skyrocketed throughout the country in recent days with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down America.

San Jose, Calif. Mayor Sam Liccardo declared that gun stores were “non-essential businesses,” and they are no longer permitted to stay open during the lock down effective immediately.

“We are having panic buying right now for food,” Liccardo said on Wednesday. “The one thing we cannot have is panic buying of guns.”

The San Jose police explained how they carried out an order to shut down the Bullseye Bishop gun store, which had a massive line of people buying weapons before they were forced to close.

“We went out there and closed it,” San Jose police Chief Eddie Garcia said, mentioning that the gun store owner was complaint as they were snuffing out his livelihood.

The move to ban gun stores has only made the emergency situation even more tense as panic grips the public. People are worried that they will not be able to defend themselves and their family as the crisis worsens.

“Essential? It’s our right to arm ourselves,” 37-year-old painting contractor Joshua Wolfe said. “Toilet paper is essential, right? People are going nuts for that, right?”

“If they’re short on supplies, they’ll come after people who are prepared,” Wolfe added.

“I’ve seen people fighting over toilet paper. I’m worried what they will do out of desperation,” said 31-year-old San Jose resident J.V. Sumabat.

“When people start looting stores and they don’t have access to food, they could come into the homes of those they feel are vulnerable. I’d rather be prepared,” he added.

There are also reports that the city of Washington D.C. has halted gun sales as well.

“You’re Full of Sh*t!” – Biden Snaps at Detroit Auto Worker, Calls Him a “Horse’s Ass” (VIDEO)

77-year-old Joe Biden on Tuesday snapped at auto plant workers in Detroit who confronted him about wanting to take away their guns.

Biden previously promised that gun-grabbing fake Latino Bobby “Beto” O’Rourke “will be the one who leads” on his gun control efforts.

Old “blue collar Joe” couldn’t take the heat and started screaming at the auto workers and even told his staffer to shut up.

“You are actively trying to diminish our Second Amendment right and take away our guns,” one auto worker said.

“You’re full of shit,” Biden retorted.

WATCH:

Biden then called one of the workers a “horse’s ass” after he confronted him about wanting to make AR-15s illegal.

 

Two 10 Year Old Boys Arrested On Felonies For Playing With Toy Guns in Colorado

CAP

 

A couple of 10 year old boys were doing what 10 year old boys do, playing battle with some toy guns. Then someone called the police on them, and next thing the boys knew, they were being tossed into the back of police cars in handcuffs.

The two boys were charged with felony menacing, and forced to do community service, among other things.

Fox 21 in Colorado Springs reports:

A Fort Carson family wants to share their story with others after their 10-year-old son was arrested and charged with Felony Menacing, a Class 5 felony, which has since been expunged.

“They came back over, told me my rights, and told me what was going to happen. They put handcuffs on me, and I got into the car,” 10-year-old Gavin Carpenter said.

The incident happened in July of 2019.

FOX21 exclusively interviewed the 10-year-old. Gavin said he and a friend were playing outside with toys near N. Powers Blvd and Constitution Ave. He said they were playing a version of the video game Fortnite.

“The toy bow was an orange Nerf bow. It didn’t work. Nothing could shoot out of it. Nothing would come out of it. The weapon, well toy I had, had an orange tip. It was also broken and couldn’t shoot anything out of it,” Gavin said.

Gavin stated they pretended to shoot at about 5 to 10 cars until one man stopped. He said he and his friend ran to his friend’s grandparents’ house.

“He slammed his breaks and started reversing as fast as he could,” Gavin said. “He came up and started getting very heated and was very mad. I was at the time, very scared.”

The man called the police. According to the Carpenter family, El Paso County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and arrested both Gavin and his friend. He was handcuffed and taken to the Colorado Springs Police Department for mugshots and fingerprinting.

Gavin’s parents, Chris and Stephanie, followed the cars to the police station. They said that night Gavin wasn’t released until 10:30 p.m.

They immediately hired an attorney to help get the charge expunged from Gavin’s record. They were set a court date, and when they arrived, they were taken to a separate room instead of seeing a judge.

“It was just a hard no, that the District Attorney wasn’t going to throw this out,” Gavin’s father Chris said. “That is when we moved into the diversion program.”

The diversion program required Gavin to do community service, submit an essay, and other tasks before the expunge could happen. After 216 days of fighting it, the felony was finally expunged.

EPSO released this statement when we asked about the arrest:

“If anyone is dissatisfied with the actions of any employee of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, they have administrative avenues available to them. We encourage citizens to take advantage of those avenues.

Daily Mail adds:

As Gavin, now aged 11, tells it in an interview with Fox21, he was armed with a Nerf gun equipped with an orange tip, while his friend had a Nerf crossbow; he said both toys were broken and incapable of shooting foam projectiles.

The boy said they pointed their orange-tipped gun and crossbow at five or 10 cars before they encountered an oncoming truck, whose driver slammed on the breaks and went in reverse.

Gavin and his friend ran inside a grandparent’s home, where a Ring doorbell camera captured the furious truck driver’s confrontation with the family.

‘He came up and started getting very heated and was very mad,’ Gavin told the station. ‘I was at the time, very scared.’

The video shared with Fox 21 shows the man, dressed in a plaid shirt and a baseball hat, yelling, ‘I don’t know what kind of gun it is. It was some kind of gun.’

An adult inside the house asks the stranger to ‘watch your mouth, please,’ to which the driver responds, ‘How about I call the f***ing cops?’

The driver made good on his threat and summoned deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, who proceeded to arrest Gavin and his friend.

Both boys, then aged 10, were handcuffed, placed inside patrol cars and taken to the Colorado Springs Police, where they were photographed for mugshots and had their fingerprints taken.

According to his parents, Gavin is now ‘terrified’ of law enforcement and suffers from ‘flashbacks’ of his arrest.

Stephanie Carpenter explained in her post that she has decided to talk publicly about her family’s plight to educate other parents that this ‘could happen to anyone with children.’

She went on to say that the family had plans to settle in Colorado for good after her husband’s eventual retirement from the military, but all that has now changed.

‘I can’t live in a state where my kids can’t be kids and play outside without being scared of being arrested,’ she wrote. ‘I fully believe schools need to be educating children that this is a possibility. Had Gavin known….none of this would have happened.’

Chris Carpenter is scheduled to be relocated to another posting in less than three months, and his wife says the move could not come soon enough ‘as we are all ready to leave.’

She has expressed concern that her son, now aged 11, will spend the rest of his life dealing with ‘the mental repercussions’ stemming from his brush with the law.

Gavin’s mother took to facebook to make this post:

James Comey Endorses and Votes for Joe Biden in Virginia

(INSET: Joe Biden) WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 17: Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey arrives at the Rayburn House Office Building before testifying to the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees on Capitol Hill December 17, 2018 in Washington, DC. House Republicans subpoenaed Comey to testify …

by Joshua Caplan – 3/3/2020

Fired FBI Director James Comey endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden and said he voted for him in Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary on Super Tuesday.

“Voted in first Dem primary to support party dedicated to restoring values in WH. I agree with @amyklobuchar: We need candidate who cares about all Americans and will restore decency, dignity to the office,” Comey wrote on Twitter. “There is a reason Trump fears @joebiden and roots for Bernie. #Biden2020.” 

CAP

Andrew Bates, the Biden campaign’s rapid response director, seemingly rejected Comey’s endorsement, tweeting: “Yes, customer service? I just received a package that I very much did not order. How can I return it, free of charge?”

Comey, who quit the Republican Party in 2018, donated $2,700 to Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) now-defunct campaign, while his wife made two contributions — $1,000 and $1,700 — to her last year. After dropping out of the Democrat presidential primary on Monday, Klobuchar endorsed Biden, saying the former vice president “can bring our country together and build that coalition of our fired-up Democratic base.”

In addition to Klobuchar, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg threw his support behind Biden after dropping out of the race Sunday. Appearing together in Dallas, Buttigieg said Biden is the only candidate who can “bring back dignity to the White House.”

“When I ran for president we made it clear that the whole idea was about rallying the country together to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for the values that we share,” the former mayor said. “And that was always a goal that was much bigger than me becoming president and it is in the name of that very same goal that I am delighted to endorse and support Joe Biden for President.”
Former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) also endorsed Biden on Monday.

“I, like a lot of people in Texas, really wanted to make sure I made a good decision. So I watched the debates, watched the town halls, listened to the candidates. And you know, by the end of last week, I knew that I wanted to vote for Biden. And it was a huge relief to finally figure out the candidate who I wanted to vote for,” O’Rourke said of his decision to back Biden.

“And then this weekend I was talking to my oldest son, Ulysses, and told him I was going to vote for Biden,” he added. “And he said, ‘Well, you should endorse him.’ And I said, ‘OK, that makes sense.’ He said, ‘If you want this guy to win, you should do everything you can to help him.’”

 

Joe Biden Promises Beto O’Rourke Will Be the One Who Leads on the “Gun Problem” – The Guy Who Wants to Take Your Guns (VIDEO)

 

Last night in Texas Senator Amy Klobuchar and former Rep. Bobby O’Rourke endorsed Joe Biden for president.

During his rally Joe Biden promised supporters that Bobby, fake Latino ‘Beto’, “will be the one who leads” on his gun control efforts.

It is widely known that Bobby O’Rourke wants the government to confiscate your guns.

Bobby knows about as much about guns as Joe knows what state he’s in.

WTH? So FOX Banned Pro-Life and Gun Rights Ads at Super Bowl but JLo Grabbing Her P*ssy was AOK?

This year FOX decided to ban pro-life ads and gun rights ads from their Super Bowl broadcast.

They were too controversial.

Pro-life advocates with the new Faces of Choice organization said they waited at least six months for an answer from FOX about their ad – and then were denied the opportunity to air their message during the Super Bowl.

But during the Super Bowl halftime show Jennifer Lopez and Shakira were flashing tongues and crotch shots on national TV.

Jennifer Lopez flashed the Puerto Rican flag.

George Stephanopoulos Caught on Camera Telling ABC Studio to Cut-Off Trump Defense Attorney

A good reminder of what we can expect when President Trump’s defense team has their first opportunity in five months to defend him

The Last Refuge – JANUARY 24, 2020

A good reminder of what we can expect when President Trump’s defense team has their first opportunity in five months to defend him. 

During a broadcast segment on ABC news reporters in the Capitol were interviewing President Trump defense attorney Jay Sekulow.

Back in the ABC studio, Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos did not want to see ABC broadcasting statements from the defense and he is caught on camera using hand signals to tell the producers to cut-off the broadcast.   Stephanopoulos realized he was caught:

This powerful video compilation exposes the mainstream media’s false narrative that attendees of the Virginia Gun March are racists and rednecks. In reality, Americans of every race, creed and color are united in their loyalty to the Constitution and are prepared to fight to protect it. This footage highlights the danger a unified populace poses to the political establishment who want the American people divided, NOT united.
