BAD GUYS

By  –

California just decriminalized gun theft, making it easier for bad guys to get their hands on firearms and to avoid criminal prosecution. I know it sounds ridiculous considering that the Golden State has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation, but that’s how gun control works; punish the law abiding while rewarding the criminals.

Prop 47, a ballot initiative to reduce “non-serious” felonies to misdemeanors, passed last Tuesday with a 58% voter approval. In addition to making most drug possession a non-arrestable offense, the ill conceived law also decriminalizes all property crimes with theft values under $950 including, specifically, gun theft.

Going forward in California, anyone found in possession of a stolen firearm will be issued a ticket and sent on their merry way. Likewise, anyone caught stealing a gun, so long as it is valued at $950 or less, would get a slap on the wrist. Presumably, the stolen firearm would be confiscated, but that is not explicitly stated so, who knows?

But hey, don’t take my word for it. Check out what the Sacramento County Sheriff’s department put on its FaceBook page:

Effective immediately, the passage of Proposition 47 will have the following effects on the custody and policing practices of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department:

1. In most instances, many crimes that were previously “arrestable” as a felony will now only be “citable” as a misdemeanor. That means they may not be booked into jail but rather given a citation (similar to a traffic ticket) with a court date to appear, and released in the field. They will not be held pending trial. Such felony crimes that are now misdemeanors include:

• Commercial burglary (theft under $950)
• Forgery and bad checks (under $950 value)

• Theft of most firearms

• Theft of a vehicle (under $950 value)

• Possession of stolen property (under $950 value)
• Possession of heroin, cocaine, illegal prescriptions, concentrated cannabis, and methamphetamine

This is ridiculous! Unbelievable!
