So, if I understand it, ALL firearms legally purchased in CA are somehow a "threat" to the LAPD? Or is it that all CA residents who buy guns & follow the law want to harm the sworn officers of the LAPD?
Chief Beck should explain what he meant. If I was a LA resident(tax-payer) & owned a firearm, I'd be insulted.
he might be talking about the influx of weapons that end up in cities, criminal shootings, gang memebers hands, etc that threaten his police force.
that being said, i don't know this guy and live far from CA....just saying he might be an avid firearms owner who worries about the guys patrolling the streets(and then again he might not)
