Sorry to sound like a broken record recently it’s just something that has come up a lot. I promise to talk more about skunks outside of my house and banana espresso smoothies again soon. Anyway, there’s a discussion going on on a mailing list I’m on about which of the LA Mayoral candidates is most gun friendly, or at least which ones are definitely not. I’ll skip the description of what that might mean, you can probably figure it out on your own.
Just to recap, the candidates are: Wendy Lyons, Antonio Villaraigosa, Walter Moore, Addie Miller, Richard Alarcon, Martin Luther King Aubrey Sr., Bruce Harry Darian, Ted Crisell, Bill Wyatt, Bob Hertzberg, James Kenneth Hahn (our incumbent), Bernard C. Park. So does anyone know where any of these people stand? Do any of them feel like commenting here about it? Unfortunately this isn’t discussed on any of their websites so it’s pretty much an unknown.
The one person I do know about is Walter Moore, I e-mailed him asking about this a few weeks ago and he respond promptly stating: “I think any law-abiding adult citizen who undergoes a background check, passes a written test (re when the use of force is authorized and gun safety) and passes a skill test should receive a permit.” It’s no secret I definitely agree with that, but I’m very curious where the other candidates stand, and I’m pointing the mailing list to this thread so hopefully some info about the others can be posted.
