“A Salinas City Councilwoman will not face charges after someone stole a high power [AK-47/SKS] assault rifle from her home,” kionrightnow.com reports. “According to Salinas Police, on January 24th, someone stole the weapon and $700 worth of jewelry from the home of Gloria DeLaRosa [above] on the 700 block of St Michael Way. Because California Penal Code 30605(a) prohibits possession of an assault rifle in the State of California, Salinas Police Detectives and agents from the Bureaus of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) conducted an investigation. The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office elected not to file charges against any persons involved based on the evidence available at this time.” They were elected to do what? Ignore the law when the lawbreaker is an elected official? Ban what they would keep for themselves? Yup. That’s about it.
