"And takes your guns away!"
In 1988, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis lost his presidential race in no small part due to the fact that he had paroled violent criminals. Taking a page from Dukakis’ book, California Governor Jerry Brown is now making a habit of paroling convicted murders. According to Brown, he expunged the records of 128 felons last year, and also gave the greenlight to parole for 377 convicted murders, a full 81 percent of all those the parole board recommended go free. Virtually all other California governors have rejected such pleas from the parole board.
Some of the murderers who will now walk the streets of California include:
- Bert Cole, 43, a former Graveyard Crip who shot a man to death after mistaking him for a competing gang member;
- Lawrence Owens, 43, who kicked and punched a man over a $20 drug deal, then watched his friend beat him to death with a concrete slab.
According to Brown, the courts have been pushing hard to release inmates slated for release by the parole board. But that’s no excuse. There may be a Willie Horton in Jerry Brown’s future – and a bevy of victims, too.

Isn't any wonder we need to be able to defend ourselves with all those criminals running around?
and they want the people to give up their guns!
Yep. That they do! They figure they can get a lot of these criminals for their elite commie regimes military IMO when it comes down to it.
Do you really think so Sherry, that this is what is behind it?
Jerry Brown is such an IDIOT
Ivonne, this Obama and his merry band of anti-gun commie dems I put nothing past. There has been conversion of prisoners to Islam going on for years. whether because they just choose, or feel like they are getting more priviliges by doing so, or protection from radical gangs in there who are or converted to Islam, because they feel safer then. Some stay converted, and why are they letting out murderers and ones who watch murders and got caught? These people already have the personality and mentality they would be looking for, and they're going to be beholding to these dems for letting them out, all at a time they want our guns. Yes, I put the connection together, along with the criminals on their side they already will not go after, that you know darn well will and do have the guns they say they are going after, the drug cartels they supply, wanting every damned criminal they can get here, as is evident in all the illegals, muslims crossing with them, sleeper cells we have already heard about. There is no reason to let cold blooded murderers out, even if nonviolent may be being let out also, which I don't know about, but there are many nonviolent they could let out instead.
Frankenstein (Feinstein) is targeting near every type gun from what I hear. She knows as well as the rest of them, as do we, in who's hands they will stay.
