LA County sheriff abandons effort to close gun stores

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who was sued by gun-rights groups after trying to shut down firearms dealers in the wake of coronavirus concerns, said Monday that he is abandoning the effort.

The sheriff said he’s heeding a federal Department of Homeland Security advisory issued on Saturday that listed gun and ammunition dealers as “essential critical infrastructure workers.”

    FYI. The blog is still skipping the posts on the page after the first page. It goes from your Making California Safer post to Sunday Video #9. No biggie. I guess I will catch those on Wednesday or Thursday.

    Thank you for all you do.

    And Happy Anniversary and many more to come for you both.

    Guns and ammunition are essential. Government departments that do background checks for the sale of such are not, so no sales.

    But the stores ARE open in accordance with Federal diktat.
