LAPD lobbying to end gun rights

Two years ago this June the United States Supreme Court said the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights was an individual right to own guns unconnected with service in a militia.

Today, in Washington D.C., Los Angeles Policed Department spokeswoman Sandy Jo MacArthur testified before the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in support of legislation that would take away an individual’s right to buy a firearm and allow the Attorney General to deny anyone the right to buy a gun by merely claiming that he or she might be a potential terrorist or appears on some watch list. The hearing was labeled “TERRORISTS AND GUNS: THE NATURE OF THE THREAT AND PROPOSED REFORMS” S.1317 is titled “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009″

This really shouldn’t surprise anyone. The LAPD has a long history of opposition to our Constitutional right to own a gun. Have you heard about the LAPD death squad? Not the 1996 Rampart one but the original set up in 1926 by then LAPD Chief James E. Davis.-[source]
