Why is this guy being offered bail at all? Seriously, folks. What possible reason would it be OK for this guy to be free among the population? SMH. He seems to me to be beyond qualification to be held until trial.


I agree!


There is no mandatory “registration” of firearms in California.


Seems like every felon has at least one P80 in their possession nowadays.
