After the success of its first video revealing some truths about the value of the California DOJ’s Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS) program, Ginny Simone and NRA News have released a follow-up video [viewed below] containing an extended interview with former DOJ Special Agent, Greg Cameron, who has nothing good to say about the California DOJ gun seizure program in which he has participated.
As part of their efforts to justify increased firearm purchase fees and universal gun registration nationwide, anti-gun California politicians are enhancing a program which identifies people who are prohibited from possessing firearms, ammunition, ammunition components, clips, magazines and speed loaders, and then send out teams of police to confiscate them.
If you are unsure of your status to possess firearms, take action! Police may be knocking on your door!
Attorney General Kamala Harris claims that this program goes after “violent felons” and people “determined by a court to be mentally ill.” This “system” doesn’t work that way, and Harris’ claims are not accurate.
The first video, that NRA News recently released, featured accounts from innocent victims of the APPS program, the informed critical opinions of a former DOJ agent who actually took part in APPS sweeps and firearm civil rights attorney, C.D. Michel.
That video revealed the APPS program as at best ineffective or incidental at getting guns from violent criminals, and at worst a campaign of civil rights violations against unknowing accidental and harmless “criminals” mislabeled as crime fighting.
While the idea behind APPS program is good in theory – seeking to disarm the truly dangerous elements of society – the APPS program does not actually do this.
