    Ms. Armitage makes some statements which are untrue and misleading.
    1. She says that in other states anyone can buy a gun from a gun show or over the internet without a background check. This is not true. All gun dealers are federally licensed and required to obtain back ground checks before delivering the gun.
    2. She states that nothing has been done about guns in the 20 years since Columbine. This is also untrue especially in California. While it is true that nothing effective to reduce crime has been done, a number of semi automatic rifles and pistols are not allowed to be sold and even possessed in California. No guns are allowed on school campus even by state licensed Concealed Carry permit owners. Guns must be stored so they are not accessible to prohibited persons.
    This has not reduced crime, but has resulted in making it less hazardous to a school shooter who now knows he will face no opposition until police can arrive.
    While “red flag” laws may in some cases help, they can also be used to further a crime. Then the abusive ex-husband or boyfriend turns in his former spouse a possibly suicidal, he then knows the police have disarmed her so he can pay her the late night call and not face an effective defense.
    The action she should be demanding is to train and equip honest citizens to resist crime as police can’t be there in time to prevent a crime and can’t legally act until a crime is committed. Israel requires its school teachers to be weapons permit holders who possess and know how to use a pistol. They are the ones who are charged with the safe keeping of their students and school shootings stopped when that policy became effective.
    They should also be demanding an end to the “catch and release” program for criminals. Just look at how many violent crimes are committed by persons still on parole due to early release because someone says the jails are over crowded.
    Perhaps they should demand work programs for the recently released. It is a tragic fact that when someone gets out of jail, no one will hire him so he is forced back into the life a crime he may be trying to leave.
    We need to concentrate on the criminals and their actions and not blame the victims for the actions of the violators.

      Excellent comment, Kathy Armitage doesn’t get the whole picture.
