The disaffection of LA residents forces sheriff to abandon the idea to close gun shops
One day after Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva decided to “free” citizens from the right to buy firearms, justifying their decision by an epidemic, the rioting majority was able to force Villanueva to return everything to its previous course.
The public immediately rebelled against the sheriff, pointing out that the executive order from Governor Gavin Newsom nowhere indicated that weapons stores were non-essential businesses.
Having understood the mistake, Sheriff Alex Villanueva sent an official request to the governor's office for clarification but did not receive a response. At this stage, all gun shops continue to work, and the sheriff realized that the rights of Americans always come first.
“Los Angeles, the nation’s largest county with 10 million residents, enacted a stay-at-home order last week that required all nonessential businesses to close to slow the spread of the virus”.
“The county order — and an executive order from Gov. Gavin Newsom — did not specifically mention gun shops, prompting the Los Angeles County counsel's office to issue a statement late Tuesday saying it has “opined that gun stores qualify as essential businesses”,” reports FOX 26 News.
The current situation inside the USA clearly shows that the population is afraid of outbreaks of coronavirus and criminals, and if there is no vaccine against COVID-19 yet, then authorities cannot cancel rights to self-defense. In turn, the police and officials are afraid of a surge of crime, so they prohibit everything that can contribute to this.
