N.C. Journal on Guns In Eureka

Maybe it's just me but I'm somewhat bothered by the tone of Thadeus Greenson's article in the North Coast Journal today. He writes about what is the supposed increase in guns confiscated by police in Eureka. Chief Mills is quoted and it reads to me as if Mills is bothered by the number of guns in town, too.But, maybe it's just me? I've wondered for some time when we'd start hearing complaints of the number of guns in the city and county, with the influx of people moving here from Southern California. As for me, it's one of the things I liked about Humboldt when I moved here up in the '70s: Live and let live and lots of guns. I didn't see a lot of guns, but heard of them through locals I met. I got into the gun thing myself after a bit at one point owning over 40, many of which I sold when I realized it was silly cluttering up my house with guns that I would likely never shoot. Yep, 40 guns, but no harm done. As is the case with most up here who own lots of guns- no harm done. I've always wondered when we'd start hearing cries for more local gun laws from all these SoCal immigrants? Hard to say if that's Greenson's intent with his story or if he just needed something to write about this week. In any case, there's tons of guns up here and not really much violence because of it, despite the spin Greenson tries to put on it and, as the Daily Sheeple points out, the places that suffer the most violence from firearms are the ones with the strictest gun laws. We don't need any new local gun laws, another one of those things where if it ain't broke, don't try and fix it.

I've never understood the right's fascination with guns. Some serious paranoia in my opinion.

i grew up with guns or as my dad called them WEAPONS . they are intended from manufacture for one purpose . hitting the target you shoot at . if properly trained they can defend you and protect you and those around you . i own 30 or so myself and i think only one has killed people MAYBE cause its a 1943 M1 carbine military issue rifle my dad got in the 50s and now its mine .
its interesting that while more guns are found in criminal hands , most of those never been used in any crime other than they were near person arrested . although you almost always hear of store or bank robbery with one mentioned or implied , or home invasion using one and then stealing the ones from the home .
and i dont think there are as many moving up north from so cal as there used to be although HSU gets lots of libtards that stick around after graduating from libtard school . think lots get here from out of state and find our state gun laws so costly and rediculas or they dont even think of registering them like required on all guns entering the state as long as not a banned gun . and then they get ripped off or are only here as trimmigant pot trimmer and get involved in garbage like they did where they came from . then they get caught with perfect legal gun unregistered but since comited crime it adds another charge
ive lost track of my thinking , rum makes for fun typing

Wow, 40 in your collection!
Take away the political agenda, & there isn't a big problem. Theres only millions of people ready to defend selves, others & country. Millions to one.
The chief has been going to seminars put on by the false "safe" propaganda. These are Bloomberg, UN, trash programs, convincing local police to sign on to federal enforcement, & the UN strong cities network.
Democide Koop-aid.
