Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has released 1,700 inmates from county facilities and is ordering gun stores in the county closed.

Fox 11 reports the gun store closures are part of the coronavirus stay-at-home order while the release of the inmates is an attempt to slow the spread of the virus in county facilities.

Villanueva is the Director of Emergency Operations, which means “all FEMA requests go through him, and all National Guard requests go through him.”

He said, “When we’re communicating the shelter in place or the safer at home, there’s a lot of anguish, however, the people who have to enforce it are public safety, and we were totally out of the process, we were not involved,”

Villanueva defended his decision to close gun stores, by intimating that all the first-time gun buyers emerging amid the virus crisis create a perilous situation: “I’m a supporter of the 2nd amendment, I’m a gun owner myself, but now you have the mixture of people that are not formerly gun owners and you have a lot more people at home and anytime you introduce a firearm in a home, from what I understand from CDC studies, it increases fourfold the chance that someone is gonna get shot.”

A totalitarian who admits he owns guns but will not permit others to own them?

He should be the first one shot when the shooting begins.

San Diego County sheriff won’t force gun stores to close — at least for now

Should gun stores be open under a statewide order that forces nonessential business to close?

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore for now will not force gun stores in county jurisdiction to close, he said Tuesday.

Calling their service valuable, Gore asked stores to follow social distancing rules and find alternative ways to sell guns and ammunition, such as online or by appointment. The key, he said, is to restrict clusters of customers at storefronts.

Gore said he had contacted a top law enforcement aide to Gov. Gavin Newsom and was awaiting for guidance on “how (Newsom’s) order affects retail firearm sales.”

The sheriff’s remarks came hours after Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva labeled gun stores nonessential and said they will be cited unless they close.
