A "prominent" op-ed writer for the Los Angeles Times opined today that the recent shootout in the nearby mountains proved the "folly" of being armed to fight government. The citizen can't deploy that level of force and will just get killed. "Government wins virtually every time." The whole argument that 2A is about fighting tyranny from government is false and outdated.
He also thinks that the current imbalance of force available to government over citizens should be increased by passage of more gun restrictions than CA currently has
We have the ballot box to reign in government, which is what the Founders intended, he said.
He did admit to being less than a "constitutional scholar".
I reckon so.
