Okay, I’ll be up front. The headline above may be a bit tongue in cheek. Or just flat out sarcastic. Because, if you’ve read this site very much, you know that California’s strident efforts on gun control (and they are one of the states leading the pack toward a total gun lock down) have really just been a complete failure.
So, with that in mind, this story won’t surprise you (hat tip to here for the lead). Andrew Kuhn gives us the details about this pathetic failure of gun control:
The Merced County Sheriff’s Office said it arrested a felon in possession of guns after he fired a gun during an argument with a roommate.
Deputies arrested 41-year-old Merced County resident Francisco Gonzalez on Friday after responding to a report of a disturbance between roommates and shots fired in the 4000 block of North Highway 59, according to a news release.
Authorities said deputies spoke with the victim and learned that Gonzalez threw water at the victim during an argument. In retaliation, the victim threw mouthwash into Gonzalez’s eyes, according to the news release. According to Deputy Daryl Allen, the victim spoke with deputies after leaving the home where the argument occurred.
Gonzalez was located at a nearby residence in the 4000 block of North Highway 59 and deputies recovered a .380 caliber handgun as well as a fully automatic AR-15 rife.
According to authorities, Gonzalez was booked into the Merced County Jail on suspicion of discharging a firearm in a negligent matter, felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, child endangerment likely to cause great bodily injury and possession of an assault weapon.
Now, if a pro-gun person could simply give me a reasonable answer as to why gun control (which is strict in California) did not prevent a convicted felon from getting his hands on not one, but two, firearms, and then rationally explain how gun control can provent this from happening in the future, I would appreciate the enlightenment.
But I’m not betting that it’s ever going to happen because gun control goes against the simple fact of the matter that a law cannot prevent a person with both creativity and determination to get their hands on a gun.
And, so, this is another story that shows that gun control only makes people less safe because the law-abiding people are the only ones who will actually comply with it. Sadly, though, when one gun control effort fails, anti-gunners will push another one and another one because they keep assuming that the problem is the program when the real problem is the thinking behind the program.
So, this is simply another in a long line of stories that continue to show why gun control is the wrong answer to gun violence.
“Fully automatic AR-15”? No such thing.
I wonder how many “clips” it holds?
Why do they care more about saving the crooks who can get guns anyway so law a bidding people not to protect themselves? Do they care about the crooks?
It is not about gun control, it is about people control, and the point of it is that they will eventually insure that no one other than law enforcement and themselves have any access to any kind of firearm. To suggest that it is about gun control or gun violence is a red herring that allows them to continue to promote ever increasing forms of control until voila, no legally held firearms. Then we can have the same kind of felonious violence that they are experiencing in Britain and other “enlightened” societies that have severely restricted the right to own and bear arms.
An AR-15 is not a assault weapon. AR stands for Armalite Rifle which was established in the 50’s and later sold to the Colt manufacturing Company in 1959. The patent expired in 77 but Colt retained the trademark.
The media calls it a assault rifle to fit the anti-gunners agenda.
Democrats should Google it to see that they are wrong about the assault rifle term. Although I’m sure they know that.
This story makes little sense. I can understand that the guy had a .380, but the AR may have simply been at the residence where he was found. I kind of think so was the child, since no mention of it was made with respect to the original altercation. Perhaps a bit of “throw the book at him and see what sticks”? The fully auto part I don’t get at all, and I wonder hos they will prove that. Not that it is hard, but it is unusual.
They only want absolute control and don’t care who gets hurt in the way of getting it.
It’s a control thing, so they can control the people, like Hitler did.
Do as I say, not as I do.
What does “fully automatic AR15” mean in “California-Speak?” Does it mean a normal semiautomatic AR15, an AR15 illegally modified to fire in full auto, or does it mean one of those Democratic “fully semiautomatic AR15s” (whatever that meant)?
guns don’t kill people, people kill people. it is what is in the mind and in the heart that kills.
Not only no such thing as a full-auto AR-15, but what about felony in possession of an automatic weapon without a class lll permit??? Whole story sounds like FAKE NEWS!!!!! Only from Commiforma!
guns don’t kill people. people kill people. it’s what is in the mind and in the heart that kills.
Simple explanation…California law makers are stupid!
Not stupid but rather downright vicious. Their only purpose is total power ***over*** the people. Such as the power that Hitler had over Germany (and he was not German) and the power that Stalin had over the Russian people.
JC, you have no idea.
I, unfortunately, live in the People’s Democratic Republic of Kalifornia.
Der Kalifornia Democratische Volksrebublik? Sieg Heil? Pray for a Great Earthquake.
Sorry, the word is spelled “Volksrepuplik.”
The Jewish People in the Warsaw ghetto were under German gun control anybody care to tell me what happened to them. Perhaps we should call it population control. Folks you better wake up before it’d too late. Why are our students not taught history in school? When the people who make our laws refuse to abide by those same laws we are them obligated to remove them. I believe the term is impeachment, and as far as I’m concerned we may need our guns to defend our families. I am 85 years old and I lived through WW2 Land on Normandy without a weapon see what happens then. Six million Jews I’ll bet wish they had guns I hope you pay attention to how the Jews react now I personally don’t think congress person Omar would go to Isreal and bad mouth the Jews now It might prove to be very unhealthy now.
Kalifornia is a test state for the New World Order, they must have disarmed slaves.
The above posts should tell you what to expect if we don’t fight every way possible.
I am 78 years old in 10 days, and the DemoRATS have been planning this for a long time.
Way back they started changing history saying the Holocaust never happened, and then started to teach ONLY SELECTIVE HISTORY, NOT TRUE HISTORY. They changed things a little at a time over the years, until people getting out of school in the last 25 to 30 years have no idea of our real history.
What’s happening now, happened with Hitler, and the outcome was WW2.
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST. LET’S JUST HOPE ENOUGH OF US REMEMBER THE HITLER YEARS AND PUT THINGS BACK IN THE BOOKS THE WAY IT REALLY WAS AND WHAT THE RESULTS WERE, SO WE DON’T REPEAT IT AGAIN.
We didn’t have this great divide in our people until they stopped teaching the true history of the world.
The SCOTUS needs to forever end the constant ambush of the Second Amendment by lib states. Not sure how they’ll do it. Possibly to refer to it as an illegal attempt to subvert a constitutional amendment. Worth a try!!
