Quote of the day–Bill Lockyer

We cannot rely on the federal government to enact responsible legislation that will prevent criminals from possessing and using guns. In order to create safer streets and neighborhoods in California, we must act now to stop illegal gun trafficking at its source.

Bill Lockyer
California State Attorney General

[You would think that someone smart enough to get themselves elected to such a high office would realize that government cannot actually prevent things.  Government can only punish acts that have already been committed.  Never mind the little “shall not be infringed” issue in the Bill of Rights which means Mr. Lockyer is actually admitting to a felony.  But as we already know, the law doesn’t apply to ‘them’.–Joe]
