California Gestapo gun down thirteen year old child:

(Reuters) – A 13-year-old California boy carrying a replica of an assault rifle was shot and killed by sheriff’s deputies who apparently believed the gun was real, family members and authorities said.

The incident took place in the northern California community of Santa Rosa on Tuesday, a day after a 12-year-old boy killed a teacher at a Nevada middle school with a gun he also used to take his own life.

Although authorities declined to identify the child killed in the California incident, the boy’s father, Rodrigo Lopez, said he was 13-year-old Andy Lopez, who was on his way to a friend’s house with a pellet gun left at the family home over the weekend.

Is is time to disarm all the police in California? Their mantra appears to be shoot first, ask questions later. I find no mention in the article where the late Andy Lopez ever posed a threat to the California Gestapo.   Open carry of a firearm, or replica thereof, may be illegal in California.   It should not  however convert city streets into a free fire zone.
