California Gun Laws And Criminals

posted on July 6, 2015

Speaking of restrictive California gun laws and sheriffs who basically forbid carry of firearms in their counties, it seems that only law-abiding citizens—and not criminals—are willing to play by those rules.

On Thursday, two San Francisco news crews reporting live on the murder of a woman in the Bay area were robbed at gunpoint, and a camera operator pistol-whipped. According to news reports, crews from KNTV-Channel 11 and KTVU-Channel 2 were reporting live when the robbery occurred, and their camera and recording equipment were stolen. Part of the robbery was actually broadcast on air.

The armed robbers apparently weren’t aware of—or simply didn’t care about—the restrictive gun laws that limit law-abiding citizens’ right to bear arms in San Francisco. Neither, apparently, was the armed murderer who had killed the woman earlier, prompting the news coverage.
