Is there ever a legal right to defend yourself with a firearm in Los Angeles? Under no circumstances whatsoever. Even when the case is completely black and white. And there’s undeniable evidence of what actually happened. Still no.
The Nov. 6 incident happened outside Vince Ricci’s home in a Central L.A. neighborhood. His wife and 5-month-old child were reportedly inside the residence when the shootout occurred.
Ricci had just pulled into his gated driveway and was walking to the front door when masked robbers jumped over a wall.
Video shows one robber charging at Ricci with a gun as he goes to open his front door.
The homeowner immediately drops his keys and a beverage, pulls out a concealed handgun and opens fire on the intruders, who run away while returning fire.
And then the inevitable next thing happened.
A Los Angeles homeowner who exchanged gunfire with a pair of would-be robbers in a terrifying incident that was captured on home surveillance video earlier this month has had his concealed carry license suspended, officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to KTLA.
You can credit Sheriff Luna for trashing the department and functioning as a perfect partner for George Gascon. Meanwhile, the robbers know that Ricci is unarmed, and every criminal in California has easy access to guns.
No licenses needed.
But it’s okay. California just needs more gun laws.

They don’t stop crime, but they certainly stop people from defending themselves.
