San Bernardino Sheriff Condemns Gun-Control Initiative

posted on March 31, 2016

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “Safety For All” Act is a ballot initiative that would further beef up the state’s already harsh gun-control laws by calling for the confiscation of magazines holding over 10 rounds and requiring background checks for ammunition purchases. While the anti-gun politician has touted his proposals as a response to the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, he is facing opposition from the California State Sheriffs’ Association—including the vocal condemnation of the sheriff of San Bernardino County. 

Sheriff John McMahon sat down for an exclusive interview with investigative reporter Ginny Simone to explain why this legislation will only hurt well-intentioned gun owners without hindering criminals or terrorists. He concluded with a call to action: “My true belief is, you’re not involved in the process, you really don’t have any right to complain. Voice your opinion, and vote.” Watch the video on NRA News here.
