GVROs in California

In one year of GVROs, in a state of nearly 40 million people, there have been 86 issued. Man, quite the potential crime wave that’s been stopped there.

We see this time and time again: the gun control folks argue that fresh, new, common sense laws are needed to stop some imagined crisis, those laws get passed, and then go completely unused.

It’s almost as if it’s just a pretext to get more laws.

    Watch yourself there; when I suggest the something may actually be a pretext for something else, I’m attacked as a raving, space cadet paranoid.

    But I forgot; it’s only Those Guys who have ulterior motives; our guys are sincere defenders of Law and Order and the American Way. ;-)

      Hey, I never attacked you as a raving, space cadet paranoid. Just raised some questions about the political background of studies you were pushing. And so I actually agree with you about needing to watch out for ulterior motives.

        “Just raised some questions about the political background of studies you were pushing.”

        Oh, so discounting them out of hand based on some allegation that Emmanuel Goldstein authored them personally, and citing one alleged sin of omission in one state, was “raising some questions?” Declining to show any counter-statistics while dismissing the whole pattern?

        Maybe JAQing off works with the crowd you represent, but it doesn’t work with me anymore.

    And I wonder how many of them were fake/spiteful.

    I’ve witnessed a few messy and angry divorces (but not violent) where restraining orders were issued simply as an attack.

    This isn’t too surprising given that California’s existing 5150 law is more strict. No judge required.
