The Sheriff of Los Angeles County is discouraging citizens of his county from buying guns during the coronavirus epidemic.
Sheriff Alex Villanueva made the remarks during a press conference earlier this week, pointing out a surge in gun sales as a potential threat during the nation epidemic. The Democrat Sheriff pushed back against the idea of purchasing firearms in surprising forceful terms, especially considering he’s bound to protect the constitutional Second Amendment rights of all citizens in his jurisdiction.
“Buying guns is a bad idea. You have a lot of people now who are at home, normally they’re not, cabin fever sets in, you got a crowded environment, weapons are not a good mix.”
Villanueva’s description of Los Angeles residents as innately prone to gun violence on the mere basis of being cooped up at home in isolation is quite a low view to his constituents, to put it lightly.
Villanueva is also releasing incarcerated criminals from county jails, citing a threat to the inmates from the virus in confinement. Other municipalities such as New York City have enacted a coronavirus jailbreak. Sheriff Villanueva is also ordering his deputies to cease arresting suspects for a litany of supposed minor crimes, and the agency has already reduced it average number of daily arrests from 300 to 60.
There’s nothing like releasing convicted criminals from the jails while discouraging law-abiding citizens from purchasing guns to instill confidence in local law enforcement among the general public. If you fear the epidemic will damage the system of law and order in Democrat-controlled municipalities such as Los Angeles, have no fear- the anti-gun sheriff’s priorities are laser focused upon where they need to be
2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020
Gun grabbers take another L.
2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms.
In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020.
These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses.
Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.
The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
