The Best Case For the 2nd Amendment Yet

Sphere: Related Content

California is in dire financial straits with a huge deficit and the Governator's apparent distaste for tackling the real problems like illegal aliens and a fat state government. So what does he decide? Setting free 27,000 prison inmates:

Reporting from Sacramento -- The state budget deal negotiated by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and legislative leaders would reduce the population of California prisons by nearly 27,000 inmates in the current fiscal year.

That would be done with a combination of new measures, including allowing some inmates to finish their sentences on home detention, creating new incentives for completion of rehabilitation programs and scaling back parole supervision for the least serious offenders.
So there you go, instead of cutting loose 27,000 state workers who, to be honest, wouldn't be missed. Arnold is cutting loose 27,000 criminals who will--if recidivism rates are to be believed--mostly turn back to crime; especially in this economic climate. Happily for liberals, they won't be returned to prison because there won't be any room. That is until the liberals get mugged and become conservatives.

So we'll get a chance to see just how the repressive gun laws in California jibe with thousands of newly released criminals. It should be quite a spectacle.
