Everyone has the right to defend themselves against criminals who want to hurt them. In today’s world, the best tool for that purpose is a firearm. Disarming the people in Thousand Oaks did nothing but create a shooting gallery for anyone who wanted to casually kill as many people as possible. Sadly, that is exactly what happened there. This is where local elections and judges become very important.
Liberals understood this decades ago. They started running for local offices where very few people pay attention and even fewer vote.
