Well look what just happened.
Law enforcement associations and unions in California said more than 23,000 firearms were in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them.
In a press conference Thursday, leaders of the groups asked for help taking 23,200 guns off the hands of convicted criminals and people with severe mental health illness.
Phil Jonas with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Employee Benefit Association (SEBA) said there just weren’t enough agents tasked with confiscating weapons from the state’s Armed and Prohibited Persons System (APPS).
“Our attorney general, Xavier Becerra, needs the support of local government to augment the approximate 50 agents assigned to recover weapons from the over 22,000 persons listed in the Armed and Prohibited System. You do the math,” Jonas said.
