There will always been liberals who hate our Constitutional rights.
Around the country, leftist lawmakers try to limit our freedoms, be they of speech, religion, or others. This is especially true in California, the land of unchecked liberalism.
But it looks like one particular ban is up for repeal. And you’ll never believe what right it addresses.
The Los Angeles City Council will be voting Tuesday on whether to end its 16-year-old “ultra-compact” handgun ban.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the ban prohibits gun dealers from selling guns smaller than 6.75 inches in length and 4.5 inches in height. Dealers are also prohibited from selling holsters to accommodate such guns.
But Second Amendment defenders argue that the ban “hurt women and disabled gun owners who need smaller weapons to defend themselves from attackers.” The ban basically mandates them out as a means of self-defense…
The vote takes place amid increasing pressure from the NRA and the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA), both of which contend “that the city restrictions have been preempted by state law.”
California has a track record of attacking rights conservatives believe in. That includes religious rights, free speech, and gun ownership.
It’s not a huge surprise that a city like LA, with its high amounts of crime, would ban small handguns. Of course, it only served to deprive law-abiding citizens from owning guns. Criminals, on the other hand, don’t bother to obey gun control laws.
The fact that this ban is up for repeal speaks volumes. Despite the heavy democratic influence, there are enough Second Amendment-supporting people in LA to see this get put through. Even in the liberal safe space of California, conservatives are breaking through.
It remains to be seen if this ban will in fact be overturned. But the very fact that Second Amendment advocates have gotten this far, in LA, is telling.
What other reforms can be pushed through that will end the tyranny of the left? How else will California conservatives save their state?
We’ll just have to wait and see.
