LA County Sheriff Makes Unusual 2nd Amendment Decision

LA County Sheriff Makes Unusual 2nd Amendment Decision

The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

The purpose of this stalwart American right has been argued multiple times over the years, but the plain and simple reality is that good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns.

With that in mind, it looks like the sheriff in Los Angeles County is ready to enlist civilian help to stop the sharp rise in homicides in the last year. The murder rate in L.A. County has close to doubled, and Sheriff Alex Villanueva has had enough.

Concealed carry permits are in and of themselves controversial, but when the criminals don’t know who is armed and who isn’t then, being on their best behavior is a sure way to stay alive.

The sheriff, no stranger to taking controversial stands, is willing to take the heat on this matter just as he has consistently in recent months.

Villanueva has been a consistent opponent of efforts by Democrats to “defund the police,” and noted the LASD had been forced to cut 1310 positions in the past year, after being cut by $145 million, with $143 million more in cuts coming.

He spoke out against the Board’s support for “Measure J,” a referendum that passed in 2020 to provide “alternatives to incarceration” and fight “racial injustice” through 10% of the country’s budget.

Villanueva also disagreed with local leaders’ attempts to spend more money on housing for the homeless, saying it would attract more homeless from other states.

The sheriff has signed a recall petition aimed at George Soros-backed, left-wing L.A. County District Attorney George Gascón, who has pursued criminal justice reforms, over prosecutors’ objections, even as crime has soared in the county.

He also said Wednesday that L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti needed to explain why he had failed to “regulate public space” to stop homelessness, saying it was a question he needed to answer before leaving for “India,” where he is rumored to be the next U.S. ambassador.

He also criticized City Councilmember Mike Bonin for attempting to interfere with policing homelessness. Bonin is proposing to use beach parking facilities to house the homeless, a proposal residents oppose.

America needs more law enforcement officers like him.
