California Gun Confiscation Program to be "National Model"

California’s Attorney General Kamala Harris wrote a letter to Joe Biden recommending that California serve as a national model for gun confiscation. “What do we do about the guns that are already in the hands of persons who, by law, are considered too dangerous to possess them?” she wrote. In total, about 20,000 Californians and 200,000 citizens nationwide own guns “illegally.”

Probably no other state tracks firearm sales as closely as California. They’re constantly cross-referencing their gun registry with criminal and mental health records. About 15 to 20 previously “legal” gun owners get added to the criminal or mental health records daily, all of sudden making them criminals for owning a firearm.

If someone was recently admitted to a mental hospital, that revokes that person’s 2nd Amendment rights. If someone had a restraining order placed against him, (whether justified or not) that revokes that person’s 2nd Amendment rights.

California’s Department of Justice has been going around door-to-door and actively participating in gun confiscation. Last year, they seized over 2,000. They also confiscated 117,000 rounds of ammo and 11,000 high-capacity magazines.

John Marsh, one of California DOJ’s supervising agents for the gun confiscation program, lamented that he got called the Antichrist by a resident who was outraged that he was taking people’s guns away. He assured Bloomberg News that they weren’t “contacting anybody who can legally own a gun.”

Yeah, but they’ll be saying that long after they’ve taken everybody’s guns away. They’ll claim that not one “lawful” gun owner had his guns confiscated. It just so happened that all gun owners in some way revoked their own 2nd Amendment rights, making their possession of firearms illegal, warranting gun confiscation.

This is how they’ll take everyone’s guns away supposedly without violating people’s 2nd Amendment rights. They’ll continue to champion the 2nd Amendment while they persist in keeping guns out of the “wrong hands.” They’ll just eventually consider every single non-government civilian as the “wrong hands.”

Lynette Phillips, one Californian whose guns were seized by the California DOJ, recently stayed involuntarily at a mental hospital for 2 days. That was enough for her to show up on their list of “illegal” gun owners and have her and her husband’s 3 guns taken away. She said that the mental health professional blew a situation out of proportion, and she was forced to stay in a mental health facility. That’s entirely plausible. But was she able to state her case to the police before they stole her weapons? Of course not. Once you show up on the list, that’s it.

We already know who Homeland Security deems to be domestic terrorists. Mental health professionals aren’t going to be any different, because they don’t want to “take any chances” of a gun winding up in the hands of someone who might have a politically incorrect opinion. After all, they’ll be held accountable for not turning someone in who ends up committing a crime. So, that’s their incentive for wanting to be overly cautious.

This is why conservatives should not at all be in favor of sanctimonious politicians trying to keep guns out of the “wrong hands” via background checks and mental health records. You and I are the wrong hands.

Part of the solution is for states to enforce penalties for murder, rape and other violent crimes. Murderers and rapists especially should be executed, regardless of whether or not they were “insane” at the time of the crime. And it doesn’t matter what weapon, if any, they used to threaten or kill their victim. The focus should not be on the tools used to commit the crime, but rather the criminal act itself.

The other half of the solution is to encourage all households to own and carry firearms for their protection. Cities and small towns around the country are starting to do this, but it needs to be much more widespread. Gun proliferation among law-abiding citizens is far more effective than a police state in combating crime.

We can’t and shouldn’t depend on the police or mental health professionals for crime prevention. Yes, guns will end up in the hands of criminals, regardless of the laws. But I’d much rather have good people and bad people own guns than just the bad people. Besides, we outnumber the bad guys by far. But that won’t be true for long if California becomes the national model for gun confiscation.

    Being a politician is grounds to remove their rights to guns or body guards they are a dime a dozen and all expendable.

    These idiots want to lock up citizens not criminals!
    These idiots will allow criminals to outgun citizens- sentencing them to death!
    These idiots, I hope will feel the wrath of the survivors, and in bad ways, since these idiots will be the murderers.
    The answer? Stand your ground on the law, and the law says, owning guns shall not be “infringed”. Disregard the false and illegal laws that try and take away a right these idiots do not possess to take away in the first place.
    These idiots are waging war! I hope they get it.
    All of the constitution is under attack- don’t let it stand.

    If the nurse is not sane enough to exercise her rights to gun ownership then she will not meet criteria for being a nurse if you review most state board rules/regulations/and expectations of health care workers taking care of patients. This sets a disturbing precedent and could lead to many health care professionals losing their jobs. One also has to wonder if Lynette was a victim of passive aggressive behavior by a peer, especially since she was admitted to a facility against her will, and yes they would have to pad the documentation to meet admission criteria and cya as they say so as not to get sued. If you ever have to deal with any of these people, you may want to start recording the conversation. Lateral violence as well as bullying and passive agressive behaviors are well documented in the health care community among peers. Lynette, I wish you good counsel and good fortune.

    Kampala Harris needs to take some “anger management” classes. This brings her qualifications into question, due to her comment that confiscation of weapons without due process is a “Civil Rights” violation. They would be using the color of their authority to take actions against the public in contradiction to the Constitution.

    Nazi Tactic Sympathizer Attorney General Kamala Harris, is swiftly tearing down progress made in the mental health community. By terrorizing persons with mental health incidents, she is instilling fear and anxiety among those who might otherwise seek treatment or counseling for a myriad of mental health problems. Mental health is a continuum. People can and do overcome mental health downfalls such as dysfunctional grieving and a plethora of other problems. We do not need such an arrogant display of coercive power to deter violence. What is needed is a supportive community. You are no better than the gun cartel that is probably supporting you.

    It won’t be long and anyone who is a member of the NRA or any other gun organization will be deemed unfit to own firearms; and don’t dare write a comment or heaven forbid an entire article supporting the true 2nd Amendment.

    The way I see it is that sooner or later everyone in this country will be judged to be unfit to have a weapon so the only sane solution is for everyone to arm themselve’s. DO NOT REGISTER YOUR ARMS

    Not only do corporations have incentive to leave California, but individuals as well, people who feel they have the right to defend themselves by all means. There must be something in the water out there.

    Ah,but consider that Fornicalia is also the home of the frivolous lawsuit! That lady who had her 2nd Amendment rights abrogated by a 2-day stay in a mental institution should hire a good lawyer (preferably one with a successful history of defending the rights of the disabled — including “mentally disabled”) and sue the hell out of the state of CA for “discrimination”. If done well, the lawsuit should not only give the lady her rights back — plus a hefty chunk of change — but it should abolish the whole registry. Can anyone recommend such a lawyer in that state?
