Why You Should Avoid Oakland Altogether

You know it’s bad when even the police are scared and suddenly find reasons to be elsewhere.

The last time Mrs. Maetenloch drove through Oakland she had to stop off for gas and got caught up in a gunfight between police and a guy who had hijacked a police car. Luckily the station attendant pulled her into his bullet-proof kiosk when the shots started flying.  Since then I never travel through Oakland unless I’m armed. To paraphrase PJ O’Rourke you’d be crazy not to be armed in Oakland, but I assure you all the crazies have guns too.

Ace’s guy Maetenloch must be a cop, then, because I assure you that there are no concealed carry permits issued to the general citizenry in Oakland, and it is feloniously illegal to carry a loaded firearm on your person or in a car.  You can transport an unloaded firearm in a locked container in your car, but that sort of defeats the purpose, eh?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
