Police chiefs back Obama gun-control plan

San Diego County law enforcement officials expressed strong support for President Barack Obama’s gun-control plans that he laid out in a speech Wednesday.

“I was pleasantly surprised when I heard him take a comprehensive approach,” said Carlsbad police Chief Gary Morrison. “I liked the way he talked about the medical community and the impact of video games on kids, and money to law enforcement and schools to craft emergency response plans.”

President Obama said he would sign 23 executive actions giving law enforcement, schools, and public health community some of the tools they need to reduce gun violence.

Big city police chiefs maybe, (at least in blue states.)

Sheriffs are elected.

The NRA will make them road kill if they chose to enforce.

Police Chiefs are typically appointed by 'rat office holders.

Sheriffs on the other hand....

Police chiefs who are auditioning for a spot in the Village People.

Yep. Nuff said. His retirement benefits aren't funded. They don't have the money. They've got to scarf it up from somewhere.
Why not sell out a Constitutional right, or maybe two? There's retirement funding here!

San Diego County is one of the more conservative counties in the state so I expect it to be more sane than liberal parts further north. But they all want more money and are, apparently, willing to try and auction off our rights to get it.

It is deeper than that; I’m sure within a year of coming to power Hitler and Stalin had the support of the (surviving) police chiefs as well.

Keep a magic marker in your pocket, and if you suddenly 'feel an urge' to scrawl FUBO & Molon Labe on something,
well...just consider it as 'getting the message out there'!

There is no gun plan.

There is but another method to plunder the treasury.
