One thought on “SAPD seeks public assistance in identifying suspects who stabbed Irvine man”
  1. Three observations:

    1) You do not need a gun to kill.
    The majority of the killings in the Santa Ana are stabbings, a favorite gang’s assault weapon, because there are no bullets left behind for the forensic.

    So how would any unconstitutional-left-liberal gun control crapola helped.

    2) Leaving the restaurant and avoiding attackers cross the street and calling the SAPD did not save Garcia’s life as the left-liberal-anti-constitutionalists make you to believe.

    It is clearly apparent that the only way Garcia could save his life was by having a gun even though he was most likely a criminal and couldn’t legally obtain one because our government violated his constitutional rights. It was Garcia’s right — not a privilege — to own a gun even though he may had a criminal record.

    3) Furthermore, please notice many hopeless bystanders behind the counter who could interfere if they would have a gun, assault rifle or other effective fire arm with them and at the home, should the suspects try to set a score later.

    Therefore, do not trust left-liberal-progressive idiots like Vern Nelson and Greg Diamond from the OrangeJuiceBlog.
