San Diego Police Chief: We Can Disarm Americans Within a Generation

San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne is fully supportive of the Obama/Feinstein gun grab, and says if lawmakers play it right Americans can be completely disarmed within "a generation."

Lansdowne has gone on record saying: "I could not be more supportive of the president for taking the position he has. I think it's courageous with the politics involved in this process. [And] I think it's going to eventually make the country safer."

He made it clear that it may take "a generation," but new laws could eventually take all guns off the streets.

This is quite a departure from other law enforcement personnel we've seen around the country--particularly Sheriffs--who've come out firmly against any infringement on the 2nd Amendment. We've cheered those officials for standing with the people, and now Lansdowne has taken a position completely opposite them.

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

San Diego has the Tri-fecta

- Police-state
- Nanny-state
- Military-industrial capitol

The population of San Diego is comprised of 4 parts:
1. Military
2. Military Contractors
3. Corporate Welfare recipients
3. Social Welfare recipients

This city is the perfect storm combination of neo-con control freaks and socialist control-freaks. Blind faith the our fearless dear leaders flourishes in this town.

San Diego Anecdotes

A San Diego update…

This region, when I was growing up, was Republican country; probably due to the amount of retired veterans and active military installations. It was so republican, that the RNC had their convention here during Bob Doles campaign.

Having recently returned after a long while away, I have found a vastly different city. I can’t quit put my finger on why such a drastic change has occured. aAfew anecdotes might give the casual reader a picture of what our reality is.

The city was transformed using state redevelopment funds. Resources were pumped into the Gaslamp and North Park, and the nightlife flourished. As fun as these places are, I fear they have been a magnet for the zombie youths…..They have flocked here. Most newcomers come from liberal bastions: San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Minnesota and Wisconsin. (On a side note… I suspect that many of them are double dipping when it comes to voting. Casting both absentee ballots in their states and voting here…it’s really easy to register to vote in CA).

Like all of California, the unions are very powerful No one seems to take issue with this, even though they make considerably more money that average workers. We’ve been trying to battle this union power grab…but the people always side “with the children” haha. Every time they need to back fill their 95% pensions they trot out some kids and get everything they want.

As to the commissioner and his police department…So far this year(2013) I think the SDPD has shot 5 people, (one guy came at a cop with what was described as a “boulder” haha, they shot him).
San Diego was one of the first cities to install and use red light cameras. Not wanting to be outdone by other cities, the city council and police department want to install smart-parking meters that have the ability of notifying the police when ones parking time runs out. No one seems to care about the polic state developing here, People here increasingly have a weird soviet style philosophy about “it’s our duty to obey the cops pay taxes and parking tickets”.

The republicans here are inept. They go to their golf resort every month and get drunk. While drinking they try as hard as they possibly can to fit every known stereotype of the country club conservative: pretentious, overindulgent, and uninteresting. They spend all of our dues on “high powered” consulting companies (Look up Revolvis) who then proceed to run republican political campaigns into the ground. It’s so bad that a longtime congressman, Brian Bilbray, was so out maneuvered by his democratic challenger, that he paraded his dying daughter (she is 22 and has melanoma) in front of the camera to try and get a sympathy vote…it backfired and he lost.

The city for about a decade was plagued by corruption; all parties involved have been promptly promoted. A pension scam destroyed our treasury. A stripper/bribe scandal ran two or so council members out of town with threats of indictment. With so much corruption, the style of government change to a "strong mayor" form of government. Right now that spot is occupied by a democratic socialist named Bob Filner. He is a moron, if he was a movie character he would be hilarious but alas, he has real power. He would want nothing more than to disarm America

every elected judge that is voted into office in this county scares me to death. they brag about how they make decision about people based off of race,ethnicity, and social background.

One of the most corrupt school districts in the USA can be found in SD. called the Sweetwater school district. All five board members were indicted on some corruption charge. The board had ample state oversight and is now being run by a 15 member school board. At one point the Mexican mafia had representatives voted in as board members. In my home town high school the freshman English teacher who is supposed to teach English literature as prescribed by the state mandate syllabus has his student instead read the great literary work (communist manifest by Karl Marx). Then instead of having them write about it, the student draw pictures as assigned; The statist can’t even indoctrinate right haha


About the only thing beside the military that is worthwhile about this region is the sheriff’s office. He is an avid 2nd amendment supporter (that what he said during his election 2yrs ago). What nice is the five other guys gunning to be sheriff are also big 2nd amendment supporters :)
his office does tend to be overzealous and a little inept when conducting complicated murder investigation. He's botch a few in his career.

The people keep voting in the same people that cause all of the problems. Is a great city and a great placE, but I fear that the city will be divided up to the arrogant, the ignorant and those with huge egos. I think I'll post this on the main site, in case any other DPers areintersted. If anyone want to see how not to run a city/region look up more anecdotes about San Diego on Wikipedia!!!:)

San Diego = Disfunction Junction

You nailed it!

The prime example of everything you just laid out can be found in the free weekly San Diego CityBeat. They love to hate on Bilbray (usually for all the wrong reasons), and Dems can do no wrong! The main Republican challenger for mayor, Carl deMaio (deMao?) was so inept he makes Bob Dole look cool! Blech.

Once when I was with a group at City Council trying to stop water fluoridation, I heard Marti Emerald (former TV personality and current council head) ridicule a plan to locate potholes with a half million dollar van outfitted with sonar. She sent waves of laughter throughout the building when she pointed out that it would cost like $47 per pothole just to locate them, but only $13 each to just send out a crew to fill them in based on phone tips from the public.

Of course the sonar van proposition then passed 9-0.

San Dieg'ans won't do

SHAT about this. I lived there from 1986-1999 and they won't get off thier hind quarters for crap unless it is a Charger, Padre or SDSU lame football game...

They are pussies whoosies and whimps, just like my former Church Horizon Christian Fellowship and all the other Stazi Denom's and Non-Denom churches that bow down and kiss the ring of Mystery Babylon headquarters in D.C.

San Dieg'ans need to go to City Counsel meetings... Yeah, right!

Hey, whoa there!

We'll do it, promise.

(Depending on the tides and swell direction of course.)

City council meetings

San Diegans need to get down there to inform Mr. Lansdowne that his opinion matters NOT ONE BIT and that he ought to keep his POLICE STATE WET DREAMS private.

It's also time to get an open records request on just which oath(s) he has sworn to uphold. It might also be a good idea to remind him that municipal codes, rules, policies, statutes, and ordinances passed by the City Council and enforced by their internal security arm (SDPD) only apply to city employees on city property BY LAW.

The next meeting is tomorrow morning at 10am:

If that's too short notice, it appears they'll be meeting again next Tuesday, February the 5th at the same time.

What a

horrible man.

Greed is not necessarily criminal?????

Well, it IS criminal when it leads you to loot the treasury of the US in the wake of losses these enormous "too big to exist" corporations were about to take...


If these nasty crappy corporations went down for their own actions, we ALL would have been WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better off...

But power protects power... but yet we have Raw Milk farms being raided and put out of business.... Go figure... time to set the record straight!

Note to self....

San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne is a piece of trash traitor!!!

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

San Diegans need to

go before the city council and demand the resignation of the Police Chief. I would bring a lot of people who are offended.

If that doesnt work get new council members and contact the county Sheriff immediately.

Big Gov't types are so dense

Every time we prohibit things we get a jump in crime and empowerment of the criminal class. How will gun prohibitions be any different?

We prohibited alcohol, did it go away? No, it just enriched criminals. We prohibit pot, same result. We crack down of a slew of pain killers, same result.

If we illegalize guns, that will be another avenue for "criminals" to make money. Legitimate business will be put out of work, but they will be replaced by people who will do far greater harm to our nation than the occasional angry shooters that are pop-up today.

Every one in San Diego

file a complaint with the city council and asked he be fired.


The new direction is to get rid of the Constitution within a generation? We need to teach our kids the 10 commandments:

1. Thou shalt belive in the Constitution thy creed.
2. Thou shalt not shrink to controversy when the United States
Constitution is of issue.
3. Thou shalt remember to never forget why we took the British flag down in America
4. Thou shalt remember to be faithful and protective of your family.
5. Thou shalt not kill anyones beliefs in freedom.
6 Thou shalt always keep family values and be kind to your fellow man.
7. Thou shalt not steal anything.
8. Thou shalt not bear false flags to achieve a percievd moral goal.
9. Thou shalt covet thy neighbors wife, but ok to covet the husband.
10.Thou shalt be kind to your neighbor at all times.


Amendment XIV Section 3.

Enforce this Amendment....he is all done...this is open rebellion, and he has vacated his office pursuant to The U.S. Constitution.

Also Section 4. of that Amendment makes it illegal to pay him any money.
Bye,bye retirement.

I'm local to this guy. It's things like this that make me want to get the h e double hockey sticks outta here.

He's not the County SHERIFF...

...he's the City POLICE chief. What you need to do is this:

Contact your County SHERIFF and urge him to STAND for the Constitution. Ideally, convince him to announce that he would ARREST the police Chiefs of ANY city in his jurisdiction who order or actively participate in ANY gun-grabbing.

Good point

The sheriff of San Diego county is William "Bill" Gore.

Or a step further, arrest the police chief for perjury instead of waiting.

I currently reside in San Diego

for Graduate School... this news disgusts me.

File a complaint? voice

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Dear Mr. Police Chief,

So guns are dangerous and you want people disarmed?

Why not start with your department?

Write us back in a generation and tell us how it went.

What to do with a sheriff like this?

If he was supportive of the 2nd Amendment, I could send him a thank you. This guy, on the other hand, I'm not sure if he's worth contacting. It's clear where he stands. There's nothing I could do to uncorrupt him. Any suggestions for what local San Diegans should do?

first of all I LOVE San Diego

used to spend winters there in the 90's. (Canadian here)

how do we send him a message?
Call email local San Diego tv radio stations and expose this scum bag.

is supposedly a conservative town, for cali I guess.


Liberty = Responsibility

Just sent a message on this board and it didn't make it. I hope the DP didn't get attacked again...
