San Diego Police Chief, William Lansdowne said in an interview that the implementation of new gun laws will take guns off the streets of America within a generation. According to San Diego 6, Lansdowne said that it may take a generation but guns will eventually be taken off the streets through new laws like Senator Dianne Feinstein´s proposed assault weapons ban: "Chief Lansdowne, who plays an active role in the western region of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) association, said it may take a generation but guns will eventually be taken off the streets through new laws

Having spent 37 years in the People´s Democratic Republic of Kalifornia, before I made my escape from the gulag, I can certainly see how his thoughts could actually happen in that socialist state. But if he thinks it is going to happen nationwide, then he´s been in Colorado enjoying some of that stinky weed.I would offer him the opportunity to come visit me and personally attempt to take my firearms.

Probably no drugs on the streets either since the "War on Drugs" has been so successful. The only thing this can mean is disarming law abiding citizens as criminals will always have guns. Or, the guy is an idiot.

I am planning to visit that fine city in about 3 weeks. Based on this loon´s comment, coupled with an understanding of geography, it will be my last trip to that fair city.

Criminals will always possess weaponry be it a zip gun, knife, sword, bale hook, baseball bat or fish gig. Law abiding citizens are the only people who are disarmed by regulation.

This guy needs to retire, along with DiFi, BabsBox, and Moonbeam Brown.

He´s appointed #3. Like many "retired" hero cop chiefs he just retires from one chief position and is hired by another. Sometimes they are hired for stuff like a school district or some other government BS.

Police Chiefs are not elected by the people. They are hired by the city they work for. They are nothing but lackies for the current political office holders. The opinions of these Democratic Chiefs are of no account.

There´s always a liberal that lets the cat out of the bag and tells us what they really intend beyond their lying.

Liberals are all about incrementalism and conservatives are too busy working and goi g about our lives thinking are liberty is guaranteed and the freedom we love will last forever. Truth is, liberals are always working underground and in the background trying to usurp that liberty and crush individualism. And we have been asleep while they have been hard at work.

Now they are out in the open believing they can make their move to take this country from us using the ignorant, the gullible, the media, academia and entertainment. The sad thing is that we may have slept too long. They may be right. The country may already be gone.

I agree with #14, #15, and #16. Chief Landsdowne was appointed after a stint in San Jose. San Diego is a fine city, so I hope you enjoy your visit #14. San Diego used to be very a conservative, military-focused city, but like every other city I can think of, it´s changing for the worse, i.e., becoming liberal and stupid.

I´m not going to give up my firearms, period. The police have no legal right to seize them. They also have no legal obligation whatever to protect any individual. The Supreme Court said so. Their only obligation is to enforce the law - as best they can.

I´ve never quite understood why so many law enforcement officers want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens. It seems they want a total monopoly on firearms, which is hardly helpful for enforcing the law or for protecting innocent individuals from violent criminals.

American citizens are arming for the upcoming revolution. The libnut gun grabbers and tyrannical gov´t should think seriously about the consequences of confiscating guns or imposing restrictions on law abiding citizens.

Law abiding citizens are not the problem. The problem is the complete collapse of criminal control.

When guns are banned, such as they are in England, this is what you will read in the San Diego Papers. In London yesterday, Jan 27, 2013, "A 16-year-old boy was heard screaming for his life before he was fatally stabbed by a gang armed with knives and swords, residents of a well-heeled area of London said today." If he had a concealed weapons permit, he probably would not even have had to fire it, just show it and those cowards would have high tailed it out of sight. We cannot trust the cops to save us because they cannot be everywhere at once.

Here is one anecdote to show the chief how wrong he is.
New York State has a tough gun law.
Last week, a 17 year old lad, first name Romeo, was appearing before a local judge for illegal possession of a loaded 357 magnum revolver. And less than a year ago, the lad was convicted of shooting at people with a 357 magnum pistol.
The most recent gun possession charge resulted in a plea bargain - the judge approved a reduction in charges to a misdemeanor. Romeo said he needed time to think it over.
If existing gun laws were enforced, there would be a dramatic reduction in guns on the street. But that will not happen, because the constituents, many of them black and gangbangers, wouldn´t support the democrats.

All the feds have to do is make all gun crimes federal felony offenses with mandatory sentences. Why is this not discussed?

Feinstein intends to make it impossible for gun & ammo mfg´s to produce & distribute products in the US. Then a major confiscation will occur, once Holder has his database of owners complete. That is why this guy said they´ll be gone in a generation.

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board.

The seasonally adjusted price index for uncooked ground beef jumped 3.8 percent from January to February, as the average price for a pound of 100-percent ground chuck rose from approximately $3.59 in January to a new record high of $3.73 in February, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100.

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration. Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force

Alex Sink, who was the model for the Democratic congressional candidate of 2014, lost what was supposed to be a slam-dunk victory Tuesday in Florida. She got the slam, but not the dunk, and departs the arena leaving a valuable lesson for her party. The Democrats spent lavishly in the district, which includes St. Petersburg and hugs the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, confident that voters who twice gave majorities to President Obama would respond eagerly to a candidate much like him. There was plenty of money to spread the message. She spent $5.4 million on the race, nearly $1 million

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

Did Justice Kagan embarrass herself
during the Hobby Lobby oral arguments?

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or
