California Gun SALES Skyrocket, Gun Injuries Plummet

by Ben Shapiro, Breitbart:

With Democrats in Congress and in the California state legislature pushing as much gun control as humanly possible, California gun sales are skyrocketing. Meanwhile, gun crime in the state is dropping dramatically.

In 2002, 350,000 guns were sold in the state of California. By 2011, that number was 600,000. Last year, it jumped to 817,000, a single year increase of 36 percent.

Did crime go up? Precisely the opposite. Since 2002, hospital visits due to injuries from gun wounds plummeted 28 percent. Gun deaths decreased 15 percent.

But that doesn’t stop California’s sanctimonious liberals from pushing more gun control. “When I see that the sales go up, I don’t like that,” complained LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. “My officers have to face these guns on the street.”

    Charlie Beck is only the Chief because he toes the party line. No big city police chief gets appointed without parroting official city policy, which is usually very left-wing. And don’t forget, less crime is a bad thing for police budgets. These police chiefs know very well, that more legally owned guns equals less crime. When citizens are disarmed and helpless, criminals terrorize, and police have more work. When citizens are armed, criminals look for a safer line of work. They can’t have this for two reasons; local budgets, including Federal grants, and the perception that they are the only ones qualified to protect the sheep.

    Police agencies exist to protect the corporation and it’s interests. i.e. THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES. Like any governmental body, they want to survive, eat and grow. Pressure from the top also pushes for stronger more para-military departments. How else can they enforce a one-world-government at the local level? Those damn sheep aren’t going to round themselves up, are they?
