Glendale police made headlines in December 2000 when officers conducted one of the largest gang round-ups in state history by executing search warrants at 16 residences and one business in search of several members of the Califas street gang, an extremely violent gang that had a stronghold on a Glendale neighborhood.
"This group was, in effect, a criminal syndicate," Sgt. Jim Doolittle, head of Glendale's gang enforcement squad, said. "I would liken it to domestic terrorism."
These are the exact 2 reasons that Soccer moms are death afraid of assult weapons. 1, typical morons in gangs abusing them and 2 the completley innacurate media again. Although its had to tell exactly what they are. From the left, they say he has 2 Tec-9's when clearly anyone can see there different. The first is porbbaly a mac-10 clone of some sort, semi auto and a total piece of junk. Same goes with the next wich probably is a tec-9 or post ban AB 10. Same deal , high cap but garbage manufactured. Still probably fun to shoot at the range though as most stuff is. Next is a shotgun "hey they got that oen right" and the last is most certainly not a SKS but a AK variant of some sort.
FOr some reason The million mom march seems to think if these guns are gone street viloence disapears. They also think that these guns are the CAUSE of the viololence. Liek just becuase they have a tec-9 its a reason to kill someone. These guns are not evil and are no more dangerous than any bolt action rifle in someones hands. If every single "asssult" weapon were somehow cleard from the streets then they would just use shotguns,handguns and anythign else they can get ther hands on. They cant seem to understand this though. bad upbringing,abuse,drugs,moelstation,gangs none of that is what causes shootings JUST the guns i suppose. The assult weapon ban will keep the guns out of only one group of peoples hands. That group is the law abiding civilains. If anyoen hasnt noticed, cocain,pot,crack the list goes on are all illegal yet gangs have a steady flow of supply. Same as guns, you will not keep them outa of the hands of criminals so lets stop taking them away from us who obey the law.
