Matter of fact every single LEO tonight told me it is their understanding that CC class is insistent that a graduate DOES NOT get involved in ANY situation. For various reasons not just liability.

The gun laws of California are some of the strictest in the United States. A Handgun Safety Certificate, obtained by passing a written test, is required for handgun purchases, although there are exemptions to this requirement. Handguns sold by dealers must be "California legal" by being listed on the state's roster of handguns certified for sale. Private sales of firearms must be done through a licensed dealer. All firearm sales are recorded by the state, and have a ten-day waiting period. Unlike most other states, California has no provision in its state constitution that explicitly guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. The California Supreme Court has maintained that most of California's restrictive gun laws are constitutional based on the fact that the state's constitution does not explicitly guarantee private citizens the right to purchase, possess, or carry firearms. However recent US Supreme Court decisions of Heller (2008) and McDonald (2010) established that the 2nd Amendment applied to all states within the Union, and many of California's gun laws are now being challenged in the federal courts.Semi-automatic firearms that the state has classified as assault weapons, .50 BMG caliber rifles, and magazines that can hold more than ten rounds of ammunition may not be sold in California. Possession of automatic firearms, and of short-barreled shotguns and rifles, is generally prohibited.California is a "may-issue" state for permits to carry concealed guns. The willingness of issuing authorities in California ranges from No-Issue in most urban areas to Shall-Issue in rural counties. However, concealed carry permits are valid statewide, regardless of where they were issued. California does not recognize concealed carry permits issued by other states, and non-residents are generally forbidden from obtaining a California concealed carry permit.California has state preemption for many, but not all, firearms laws. Actual enforcement of California's firearms laws also varies widely across the state. Urban areas, such as the San Francisco and Los Angeles metropolitan areas strictly enforce firearms laws, and some communities within these areas have passed local ordinances that make legally owning a firearm difficult. Meanwhile, some rural jurisdictions are narrowly enforcing the same firearms laws by targeting only those who demonstrate malicious intent, or not enforcing portions of the state's firearms laws at all.

You know, the city that was a war zone in 1990 but is now one of the safer cities in the US? The same city where CC is illegal and that you aren't allowed to have a gun outside of your home? We have plenty of domestic examples to follow for building toward a better future. Lets be real, the only reason this discussion is even coming up now is because instead of people dying in low income areas and/or people murdering their wife/husband/mother/prostitute/mistress now the victims are suburban white kids, something everyone that has turned a blind eye to the need (and success) of gun control is the US has to acknowledge..... it just so happens that incidents like this are also the least likely to be stopped (whereas the daily homicide rate can be impacted, greatly).If you want a plan, I'd start with the states and cities here that have had undeniable success and go from there.And I never said meltdown all the guns, I'm fully aware that making an order like that here would do nothing more than start a civil war. Though I could make a strong argument that a civil war would be in this countries best interests.........

Fuck it, you fucks wants your guns and CCs let's just institute a gun tax where you have to pay 1,000 (per gun) a month for the right to own handgun. You all can pay it and anyone registered as owning a handgun has to pay. Anyone not registered as owning a handgun and caught with one can go to jail for ten years. And the semi-autos and autos, well, I guess you can have those for $5,000 a month per gun. And if you don't want to pay the tax we'll throw in a gun buyback program similar to what NYC did this weekend (of course, all buybacks will be funded by the Death Toy Tax).You wanted to own toys capable of killing, pay for it. Same concept as the sin taxes, just on an annualized basis since these toys actually kill... well.... others.

In essence, those that want to pay to own guns would be paying for that security in the schools..Dude, sometimes you do go off half-cocked............
