(Washington Examiner) California Police Chief Ken James insisted earlier this month that the idea of a gun as a "defensive weapon" was a "myth." Speaking at a news conference about gun control with California lawmakers, James explained that he was concerned with the amount of weapons owned by American citizens.
"One issue that always boggles my mind is that the idea that a gun is a defensive weapon," James said. "That is a myth. A gun is not a defensive weapon."
