I predict that with a few years, anti-freedom fascists will be decorating the streets. Lampposts, anyway.

Most police chiefs answer to their political masters, so their positions reflect those they are answerable to. The rank and file almost always disagree with the chiefs on just about any issue, including gun control.

It's working miracles in Chicago there, Chief. Only SEVEN people murdered this past Saturday night.

Of course he does not live in San Diego. He lives about 70 miles away in Fallbrook. He is a 100% partisan Democrat hack. The local news media rarely ask him to answer tough questions. If they do ask him a tough question he does not answer it.

San Diego Chief of Police: We Can Disarm America "Within a Generation"


As the goal is admitted, let us have no more discussion of these ridiculous diversions.

The goal sought is disarmament, period. Accomplished bit by bit. But none of those bits are "reasonable" or "common sense" as they are admittedly simply elements of the intended goal, which is complete disarmament.

If the goal isn't worthy, then none of the steps towards it should be undertaken.

And the police wonder why they aren’t respected anymore.

Imbeciles like this chief actively siding with the criminals in disarming the people and turning them into prey instead of supporting their ability to defend themselves against predators couldn’t possibly be part of it, nooo....

Did they look for the furthest left wing, lowest IQ possible to fill the chief’s badge or what?

He has reason to be optimistic. Look at how anti drug programs have cleared the streets of drugs. Gun control should be at least as successful.

Well I should hope so! Who puts their gun down in the street anyway? It might get run over or someone might trip and there is all kinds of gravel and oil down there, at the least you would mar the finish. Guns belong in holsters when not in use or in hand when they are.

The system will be overwhelmed long before then.

And the overwhelming isn't going to work out as well for the oligarchy as they believe.

Only half of America.

The other half will have successfully seceded from this future tyranny.

San Diegans Call for Resignation of Police Chief William Lansdowne

Chief Lansdowne has mishandled the Occupy San Diego Protest. He has facilitated the waste of over 2.4 million dollars in 30 days on suppressing free speech at Civic Center Plaza in San Diego.

He has ordered the macing and beating of peaceful protesters and continues to waste over $57,000 per day on intimidating, harassing, and suppressing the peaceful protest rather than protecting and serving the interests of those exercising their freedom of speech and assembly.

We the Citizens of San Diego call on Chief Lansdowne to resign his post as Chief of Police immediately.

Even without the upcoming amnesty, demographics will guarantee a permanent Democrat majority within a few election cycles. Once the dems have majority ownership of all 3 branches of gov’t, they will surely ban guns.

Typical JBT mentality. Sure guns will be off the street right after the war on drugs is won.

These brown shirts cannot even keep guns, weapons, drugs out of prisons and somehow with direction from the magic negro guns will be removed from millions of constitution obeying citizens by unconstitutional LEO scum? I don’t think so.

And if that happens, it still won’t matter since there still will be over 200 million guns in the US. They are not going to get turned in to loons like this guy.

Given the state of budgetary restraints on most departments, they will only be going after citizens (the low hanging, registered fruit).
There is not much the police can do against illegal, un-registered weapons other than respond to "calls".

The intentions of this sadistic Police chief and most on the left is the implementation of a Totalitarian Police State. If they make the "final" push to destroy our Republic, then what you state would be minimal justice.

The left will not stop until they unleash H*ll against us. They are playing for keeps.

Sen. John F. Kennedy’s statement, Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, April 1960, p. 4 (1960): “By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia,’ the ‘security’ of the nation, and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”

Sen. Hubert Humphrey’s statement, Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, Feb. 1960, p. 4 (1960): “Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”

Most cities have audio sensors that triangulate a gunshot almost immediately withing a few feet.
Cops never seem to answer the calls quick enough though.

There is no need to bother with that anymore. These days one simply visits a "no questions asked" gun buyback event (on the opposite end of the country, usually) and gives all their firearms away.

Very good! “In holsters or in hand”. My thought was
EGAD those guns could be run over by steamrollers or little tricycles with clowns riding on them!

At least the dumb chief didn't say “out of the hood”, that
could mean no longer hidden in a hoodie.
