  • Pérez asks sergeant to revoke members' gun permission

    Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez has asked the lower house's chief sergeant-at-arms to revoke authorization several members were given to carry concealed firearms in the Capitol "pending a full review of safety and security measures."

    The request came hours after The Bee first reported that Assembly Sergeant-at-Arms Ronald Pane had granted four members special permission to carry weapons under the dome and in legislative office buildings.

    Perez spokesman John A. Vigna said in a written statement:
    "The Speaker does not believe that members should bring weapons into the Capitol because the job of protecting the men and women who visit and work in the Capitol is best left to the well trained professionals in the Sergeant's office and the California Highway Patrol. The Speaker has asked members to work with his office to review safety and security concerns they may have about their district offices. The safety of the men and women who visit the Capitol, as well as their representative's district office is the highest priority for the Speaker."

    The wording of this statement so typifies the liberal view that it is the job of the police to protect us, so we should not be allowed to protect ourselves.

    I know one Assemblyman who is LASD reserve. I don't know if he carries or not, but I would think he would be allowed to if he felt it necessary.

        That might be a reason to encourage them to carry guns so long as the public is not around.

          Very true. You know what they say; politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often for the same reasons.

          Liberals are very broadminded: they are always willing to give careful consideration to both sides of the same side.
