Just what LA needs--more gun laws

In the state touted by the Brady Campaign as being the least free . . . er, having the "strongest" gun laws, and in the city that recently passed a number of yet more restrictive gun laws, what do you do about high levels of violence? Don't be silly--you add some more gun laws, of course.

Just a few weeks after the Los Angeles City Council approved a batch of new gun and ammunition ordinances tightening restrictions on ammunition vendors, council members Jack Weiss and Janice Hahn are proposing a new law that would make it more difficult for individuals convicted of certain misdemeanors to own guns.
Now there's an idea--if you don't have enough felonies to sufficiently disarm the populace, you just start disarming them for misdemeanors, as well. To be fair, it's just "certain" misdemeanors that would require the denial of a person's Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental, absolute human right of the individual to keep and bear arms. So which misdemeanors are we talking about?
Weiss and Hahn’s measure would add other offenses to the list, including carrying a concealed weapon, possession of an assault weapon, burglary and misdemeanor gang crimes.
So some of the "crimes" that can lead to you being disarmed under the color of law are carrying the means to defend your life and family while in public, or possessing a semi-automatic rifle (of the sort used by Korean shop owners to defend their businesses during the Rodney King riots).

The people of Los Angeles must feel much safer now.
