A gun in the hand of a law abiding citizen is a good thing. The fact that a sheriff is preventing these citizens from arming themselves is appalling. It’s time this guy went into early retirement.
Southern California –– Sheriff Bill Gore said he will protect the citizens of San Diego county. and we have no need to protect ourselves.
The sheriff missed the thousands of crime victims last month. Most victims were unarmed and defenseless. Here are a few examples from a very long list;
- – A group of women were robbed at gunpoint in the Little Italy district at night. Two were shot.
- – A 76 year old man was attacked in a parking lot. The victim required two surgeries to repair damage to his face and eyes.
- – A registered sexual offender broke into a house and forcibly kissed and fondled the homeowner. The suspect was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of burglary, sexual battery, elder abuse and violation of parole.
These victims were denied the right of self-defense by Sheriff Gore. He says he can’t issue concealed carry permits to ordinary citizens, but many other California Sheriffs do exactly that. A three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals went so far as to call Sheriff Gore’s disarmament policy unconstitutional!
