Calif. guns chief: State can’t afford to disarm felons, mentally ill

Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown has boasted in the past that the state’s financial woes are finally over, but a report Wednesday said the state is unable to find the funds to disarm more than 19,700 convicted felons and the mentally ill.

The state annually confiscates the guns of about 2,000 people on the Armed Prohibited Persons list, but the effort is like bailing out a sinking vessel, with more than 3,000 people being added to the list yearly, Mr. Lindley said.

The statements of politicians and reality are almost entirely unrelated. They can't describe guns correctly, yet want to control their manufacture. They think they can screen the "mentally ill". They think they can protect the population, yet they've mismanaged public resources so badly, they can't enforce the laws that are currently on the books.
