One clear message that Villanueva is sending, is on gun stores.

“We will be closing them, they are not an essential function,” Villanueva said. “I’m a supporter of the 2nd amendment, I’m a gun owner myself, but now you have the mixture of people that are not formerly gun owners and you have a lot more people at home and anytime you introduce a firearm in a home, from what I understand from CDC studies, it increases fourfold the chance that someone is gonna get shot.”

I wonder if he would let someone vote for a first time even if they didn't in previous elections.

Of course we all push for more training.  Everyone is stuck inside their homes and have nothing to do.  Plenty of info online to get an understanding how it works.  Some snap caps to practice with.  Maybe a bb gun in the basement with a chunk of carpet for a back stop to learn too.  Bottom line, no experience necessary to be free man.

A lot of people buy a gun , load it , and then place it in a drawer in case they might need it.  They never hurt themselves or anyone else.  There will always be those who can't handle any kind of tool without hurting themselves.

Not an "essential function"? What is your department's average response time sheriff?

Now more than ever you have to be certain of your surroundings
I will not agree with the non-essential statement
I will agree that many people making purchases now are not your “I have a firearm” from before!

No one wants to see anything get out of hand, but if it does I chose to give myself a fighting chance.

If having a gun is not essential, he and his crew of deputies can leave them at the station.

Anyone who starts out with " I am a supporter of the 2nd and a gun owner BUT!!!!!!" you know they are lying. Time to get these illegal and unconstitutional actions into court and hold them accountable.

Congratulations on surviving your surgery and your recovery.  No surgery for me (recently) but bad back and 40-50 lbs. overweight keep me from "running away".  But after riding motorcycles all over  southeastern Missouri, Southern Illinois, and southwestern Indiana, my head "lives" on a swivel. :laugh:

Training is always a good idea, but a Constitutional right does not, and should not, have infringements attached, such as a training requirement. If any "right" should require training, it is the right to vote.

Maybe they bought a hipoint.  I always said that if that were my carry piece, any functional issue and you could always throw it at them.  Bricks have been known to kill a man.

Moot. The L.A. County Attorney told the Sheriff Tuesday, that gun shops were legally “essential”.

This tyrant needs to be kicked to the curb come election time. I have a question. Are there any examples of state police or Sherriff's refusing to obey these unconstitutional orders? From New Jersey to New Mexico, the state police and/or local Sherriff's are doing their respective authoritarian governors bidding. What happened to all these cops that said "not in my county" when a ban was imminent? Does anyone uphold their oath anymore? COPS are not on our side!

wolf doesn't like because I won't tow the same line he does. It's cool. I am not here to be popular, as a moderate lefty that supports constitutional carry nationwide I get angst from everyone.  I'm used to it. :)
I am here for 2A news in IL and the nation and to support RTC legislation fwiw.

Closing gun shops because there are too many first time gun owners walking out with firearms is a legislative issue, not an executive powers thingy.

Quote: "as a moderate lefty" -- there is no such thing. The Democrat Party no longer tolerates or supports ANY moderate positions on any issue. The last of the pro-life Democrats have been kicked to the curb by the Party, and the radical socialist, anti-American and vehemently anti-2nd Amendment rantings of AOC and the "squad" now seems to represent that Party. Those who say "but Biden is a moderate" are either ignorant or lying. Biden has adopted the far Left positions advocated by the "squad" as well as by Communist Bernie Sanders. So when I hear someone claim to be both a Democrat and "moderate" I know it is pure BS. 

 

There was a time in the past when a fair number of Democrast supported the 2nd Amendment, but that day has passed. But I do understand that there may be some that wish that the Democrats were more flexible on gun issues, but if they remain a supporter of the Democrat Party they are clearly indicating that the 2nd Amendment is a "nice to have" Constitutional right at best, and of lower priority than the rest of the Far Left agenda of the Democrat Party including unlimited abortion "rights", open borders, health care and other taxpayer paid benefits for those illegally in our country, high taxation and oppressive government regulation of what would become a no longer free market system economy. 

 

For me things are fairly straightforward since the same politicians that support the 2nd Amendment, also desire secure borders and a solution to the challenge of the 20 million illegals in our country. All other issue are secondary for me.

I find that the Second Amendment, the liberal application of the right to keep and bear arms, is not inconsistent with much of what is on the liberal "agenda"...  you are witnessing that as former gun agnostics and haters seek to become first time gun owners in these odd times.

 

I also find that the far end of the conservative agenda seeks to deny rights and freedoms and progress.

 

I am in the middle and will pick from the best freedoms of all worlds...
