One law for us, another for you: California’s legislative hypocrisy a failure of democracy

One law for us, another for you: California’s legislative hypocrisy a failure of democracy, by the Washington Times.

The California state Senate voted 28-8 Wednesday to exempt itself from the pointless gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the populace. Legislators apparently think they alone are worthy to pack heat on the streets for personal protection, and the masses ought to wait until the police arrive.

The arrogance of one-party government in California, by Thomas Lifson.

California’s gun control laws are draconian, and getting a concealed carry permit depends on the whim of your local sheriff.  If, like most Californians, you live in an urban county, it may be all but impossible, absent public death threats lodged against you.

Which rather says the reasons for anti-gun laws aren’t really believed by the elite. Who among the political leaders and business leaders at the very top denies guns to their own security details?
