Default Why Oakland supports gun control



Obviously gun laws (and traffic laws, public assembly laws, and assaulting an officer laws) are selective enforced in Oakland. Some groups are given a pass, and some groups (like us) are held to every letter of the law.

I am sure that if there were any gun violations at an NRA meeting, or a Tea Party rally, there would be a swift and unsparing law enforcement response. If a group tried to shut down a freeway for a Tea Party rally, the list of charges would go on for pages. But some other groups in Oakland are not under any such scrutiny, apparently.

Welcome to the end product of 40 some years of the Democrat legislature
controlling California.

Because policies like gun-control punishing the average law-abiding citizen,
works so well against the criminals depicted in the video.

Can you imagine any of this happening in Kennesaw, Georgia ?

For some of you new Calguns lurkers in the audience who are unaware:

In 1982 the city passed an ordinance mandating gun ownership.

Quote:
Gun rights activist David Kopel stated that there is evidence that this gun law has reduced the incident rate of home burglaries citing that in the first year, home burglaries dropped from 65 before the ordinance, down to 26 in 1983, and to 11 in 1984.[19] The overall crime rate had decreased by more than 50% between 1982 and 2005.[20] Another report observed a noticeable reduction in burglary from 1981, the year before the ordinance was passed, to 1999. A 2001 media report stated that Kennesaw's crime rates continued to decline and were well below the national average, making citizens feel safer and more secure.[21] Later research stated that there is no evidence that [the law] reduced the rate of home burglaries [in Kennesaw],[22][23] The city's website says that the city has the lowest crime rate in Cobb county.[24]

"Welcome to the end product of 40 some years of the Democrat legislature
controlling California." Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't Gov Brown mayor of Oakland for awhile? Just saying, of course the current mayor isn't any better - in fact she is worse!

That is 3 year old footage, and we are hamstrung by political cronyism. Since you are pointing this out, can you please sign the petition to keep Chabot Gun Club open.
