I could go on and on and on with similar links. But, yeah! We've gotta get GUNS off the streets! Guns, I tell you! GUNS are doing it! Get the guns! And THEN the criminals will just stop being criminals! Makes perfect sense.

It stands to reason when you get the guns [ from criminals ] you've also nabbed the criminal. At least that's how it worked when I worked as part of the AG's effort to get the guns off the streets. Never saw a criminal who was nabbed with one or more guns just be let go by leo's. Their arrest was subsequent to the guns being taken resulting in sundry felony charges.

Are you suggesting there should be a cease and desist in targeting criminals with guns for some reason? Drugs?, ya find the guns, gangs, ya find the guns, etc. Thus gang units want to "get the guns" off the streets if only as a side benefit. Same for narcotics units, they want the drugs, but they get the guns as a side benefit at the same time.

From your links, it appears there's no bridge from getting the guns off the streets to criminals not being held responsible for their actions. To not be held accountable suggests there were arrests prior, and if they were grug or gang related likely resulted in capturing stolen firearms.

In CA. if a gang member is caught with a stolen gun they are released with a ticket to appear in court it is a misdemeanor passed a few years ago .The BLM are democraps brown shirts .
Unfortunately, progressive states courts like Ca. are part and parcel to the continued gun violence on their streets in major cities like San Jose [ triads, tongs ], LA [ bloods/crips/triads etc ]. How in the hell is that state going to reduce gun violence when they won't detain those people after charges are filed, but release them right back into general public.

Some of the major efforts to get the gangs members, drug traffic have been successful, but only to a point. Politicians are cutting leo's off at the knees, thus the system designed is replaced by their idea of justice. They don't give two craps about their voters, and apparently in Ca. at least, the majority of people are stupid enough to keep voting them back into office.

Major score in an attempt to get the guns off the streets have been the SC ring transporting firearms into NYC and Boston to be distributed to other gang members in those cities. That came to light when several firearms were found to have originated in SC. That ring was busted up after a lengthy 2 year investigation.

1993/94, Long Beach harbor. A Chinese ship docked for unloading is discovered to have numerous [ forget the numbers now but something on the order of 100-200 ] full auto AK's which were bound for tong gangs across Ca. That resulted in the infamous order by Clinton to stop all importing firearms out of China.

1981, Boston, state and federal authorities are turned on to smuggling operations off their south shore coastline. Cash for guns exchanged at sea. The guns originated with the Irish organized crime faction led by ****** Bulger hdqt'd in "southie". The cache of stolen gun came from all over New England where they were warehoused in S Boston until the ship from Ireland was off shore. Long line swordfish boat was used to deliver them at sea [ that boat was out of Marshfield, Ma on the south shore, and as it came to be, I'd already investigated that boat owner for arson of one of his building in Marshfield. They'd already been paid for in advance by factions within the IRA through channels created by drug smugglers on both sides of the pond. I was involved in this one to some extent, the intel end of it anyway.

When politicians speak to getting guns off the streets, they are for the most part concerned with illegal arms in the inner cities [ targeting gangs ]. Now it is obvious some pols want the general population disarmed generally, but we've not seen anyone targeting revolvers, semi auto handguns. They've not stopped the importation of Turkish made handguns which they could easily do like Clinton did with China. That would reduce the number of guns on the streets, but those guns aren't being bought and used by gangs/criminals in any great numbers, YET
