Letter: Democrats the biggest threat to safety, security


The state Legislature is in the process of gutting the “three strikes, you’re out” law, passed by voters with an overwhelming majority. Lawmakers are also trying to get rid of the death penalty for convicted murderers.

They have created sanctuary cities, where illegal aliens convicted of major crimes won’t be exported. Then, in a blast of stupendous hypocrisy, they’re trying to severely limit law-abiding citizens’ rights to gun ownership.

In other words, it’s OK to turn violent criminals loose in society where they won’t have to fear armed citizens having the ability to protect themselves.

It seems to me that progressive Democrats are the most dangerous threat we currently face to our safety and peace of mind.
