Why I carry a handgun for protection, Vol. 52

Because of events just like what happened today, when the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the state of California to immediately release upwards of 46,000 inmates, many of whom are violent felons, due to overcrowding in the mismanaged prison system there.

"[Dissenting Justice Antonin Scalia] added that 'terrible things are sure to happen as a consequence of this outrageous order.' Justice Clarence Thomas agreed with him."

We of course want prisoners to be treated humanely, but there's got to be a better solution to this crisis than simply opening the prison gates and letting so many predators back out among the law-abiding populace to once again wreak their mayhem.

California is one of the few states left that unfairly refuses to issue handgun carry permits to most law-abiding citizens, reserving that "privilege" for special persons such as Dianne Feinstein (virulently anti-gun politician for everyone else but her) and Sean Penn (rich and famous celebrity who has a long and violent police record, including an arrest for felony domestic assault).  That's too bad, because it certainly appears as if those innocent residents are going to need all the help they can get in very short order.

If the felons that should have been executed had been and the ones that should be deported had been, CA would not have had these excess vermin to worry about. God help the people in that state.
