California governor signs bill to speed up gun seizures | Fox News I am choosing to pick on just one thing from this article: a statement made by the California Attorney General Kamala Harris: "California is leading the nation in a common-sense effort to protect public safety," Attorney General Kamala Harris, who oversees the state Department of Justice, said in a statement. Ms. Harris, I don't need my public safety protected. As if you COULD protect it. Which you obviously CANNOT. Only I can protect my safety in public and no amount of effort on the part of the state (as in all levels of government) can protect me from harm. So stop trying because the only thing you accomplish is trampling the Constitutional rights of citizens. I know they are talking about convicted felons, those ruled mentally unstable, and subject to domestic violence restraining orders. But there have been instances in California recently of overzealous enforcement expanding the definitions of these classes to include people who represent no threat whatsoever to the public (or even specific private parties). And as anyone who knows someone going through a divorce involving children, false accusations of domestic violence get filed all the time as a custody tactic. And I'm sure the same thing probably happens with getting rulings of mental instability. The other problem I have with this is the databases used for cross reference. Five of them. WHICH five? I'm willing to bet that at least ONE of them is a federal HIPPA violation to access in the manner they use. Ok. I didn't pick on just one thing... I'm just glad I don't live in California and feel sorry for those who do.
