It’s very dramatic, like a scene out of a post-apocalyptic film.
This isn’t “Mad Max,” after all, where the hero saves the day.
If someone resembling Mad Max were to show up in California, the governor’s thugs would confiscate his weapons before sending him packing.
Four people in masks and hoods are shown in broad daylight robbing a wrecked automobile on the side of a Los Angeles roadway in a video that has gone viral online.
The California Highway Patrol told KABC-TV that the suspects deliberately caused the crash so they could rob the motorist, who is seen in the footage holding his hands up.
After that, they hopped in a waiting car and quickly drove away.
It’s just another ordinary Tuesday in L.A.

The movie version missed an excellent opportunity to have the victim become the hero. The writer would have him pull a.44 Magnum out of his belt and start shooting. Punishment was received and duly imposed.
However, some of the nation’s toughest gun prohibitions may be found in the Golden State. There is no fairness whatsoever.
According to a statement on Newsom’s website, “New Findings Continue to Show California’s Gun Safety Laws Work.” Really? To the untrained eye, it doesn’t appear that way.
The only people the gun regulations are protecting are criminals because their victims can’t defend themselves.
How come in January, The New York Times ran an article titled “California Has More Than 100 Gun Laws? If they know how to stop mass shootings, why don’t they do it? Sure enough.
The subtitle read, “The state is still reeling from back-to-back attacks that left at least 19 people dead.”
One has to wonder what would have happened if the victims had been armed.
When the bad guys are winning, the California roadways seem like something out of a horrible movie. It has become a shelter for criminals and a nightmare for its citizens due to lax gun laws and strong support for the Second Amendment.
Having “experienced a sharp increase in violent and property crime over the past few years,” according to Newsweek, it is no wonder that so many Californians are hightailing it out of Newsom’s liberal hellhole.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, California lost 340,000 residents to other states in the year 2022. Try to guess where they went.
The two most popular destinations were Texas and Arizona, which are among the most pro-Second Amendment states in the country.
Writer Robert A. Heinlein said it best: “An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”
