Law abiding citizens, many newly jobless and being ordered to self quarantine, are now in even greater peril as the Coronavirus incongruously takes its toll on their safety and that of their families by leaving them vulnerable to criminals.
States with Democrat governors from California to New York are releasing from prison felons charged with violent crimes, claiming the close conditions are breeding grounds for the scourge. At the same time, the pandemic is being used by Second Amendment restrictionists to deem gun shops “non-essential” and in need of being closed.
The unprecedented national quarantine has also bizarrely presented a fertile opportunity for those intent on imposing the leftist’s “Criminal Justice Reform” mandates. Socialist billionaire George Soros has been funneling money to far-left candidates in an effort to overhaul the U.S. Justice System — influencing races for elected District Attorneys (in Arizona they are known as County Attorneys) and county sheriffs.
One of Soros’ PACs poured $millions into defeating Sheriff Joe Arpaio and installing Democrat Paul Penzone as Maricopa County Sheriff, aided by the left-wing Arizona Republic. He tried the same tactic against then-Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who not only won reelection, but was later appointed to the state Supreme Court.
On Friday, a lawsuit was filed in the Central District Court of California challenging the notion that gun dealers were non-essential businesses and must be shut down. Among the plaintiffs questioning the illogical restrictions was the National Rifle Association of America (NRA). Read the legal challenge here.
