It seems the Democrats in California just keep saying the part they are supposed to keep quiet out loud.
The 2nd Amendment will not protect you from the government.

Is it because they are too comfortable in a cultural and local politics majority? If that was the case, you’d expect to hear more statements like that from NYC leaders, too. The reason I say it’s a California thing – or maybe a “guys name Eric” thing – is because I had the same thought as Stephen Gutowski when he posted about it:
This is a lot like when Congressman Swallwel, who was running for President at the time, said resisting government tyranny was pointless because the president could just nuke his own country. A very odd thing to say as a candidate for office.
