    Don’t expect the govt to do anything serious. They are the ones who initiated this act. Expect it to happen more and more, starting with the major cities, and there-on out.

    They plan to make it so dangerous to own a gun, that people will be more willing to give them up.

    In a place where gun possession is dependent on the good will of the Govenment- New York, California, England- then the list of the favored SHOULD be open to the public.

    So we know who our masters favour.

    I think it would be advisable for he/they to tone down the gun control discussion/hate on both sides just before all of the celebrations of our re-elected taker down of this Country. Just sayin’.

    SOP when performing work at CA prisons is for the workforce to park in outlying lots and then be bussed into the prison.

    Keeps the inmates from getting your license plate number. The less they know about you, the safer you and yours are…

    Keep track of incidents to present to the paper.

    This will get messy for the dead tree organization.

    People “outed” the bosses at the Journal – should have done the same with Gannett, too.

    Not only are their DOC people being harassed, but citizens who were victims of some of the prisoners are now being harassed at their homes. Yeah, I know, not exactly a sign of intelligence on the part of the cons and ex-cons.

    So, which party supports the CRIMINAL ELEMENT?

    Pretty frigging clear, if you ask me.

    Bastards, just bastards.
