Swap guns for rights

Unemployment in California: 11.2 percent. Unemployment in Los Angeles County: 11.4 percent. State, county and cities crying about their financial crisis, and what does our (county) government decide to spend our money on?

Giving away cash cards for guns ("Swap guns for gifts this weekend," April 18).

Do our elected officials believe this is really an intelligent investment ... $50 for firearms that don't work?

And $200 for an assault weapon? Does that include bows and arrows, spears, knives, gallon cans of gasoline and pick handles?

Do they really believe the gang-bangers, thugs, thieves, other criminals (or possibly terrorists) in this society are going to do this?

Or is this a simple ploy to further the effort of every gun confiscation and anti-Second Amendment fanatic in the country - to remove every single firearm from as many law abiding citizens as possible?

Where does all this hatred for gun owners come from?

Where does the belief come from that an unarmed society is not only safe from itself, but from its government?

My only conclusion is Europe. That seems to be the part of the world our current political majority wants to emulate.

OK, so now I guess we can look forward to the wonderful utopian society Europe's created over the centuries.

You know, complete with brotherly love, all for one and one for all, freedom from being persecuted because you're of a different faith, national origin, blood-type, and so on. Further, freedom from war(?), freedom to travel to and from at will, freedom from national and international border restrictions.

Freedom of the press and all those other silly things in the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights and amendments as well.

Europe's done such a magnificent job of creating their world, I can't wait until the American people finally give up, forfeit our Constitution, and swear allegiance to the United Nations, the European Union, or whatever world government they finally decide upon.

Hail Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Clinton!
