I’m actually not surprised to see that Mayor Pro Tem Gene James wants to declare San Clemente as a Second Amendment Sanctuary City. His lack of knowledge regarding American history and the development of the Second Amendment is clear in his statement about the intent of the Founding Fathers.

“The Founding Fathers and Framers saw this day coming …” couldn’t be farther from reality and makes it obvious that he hasn’t read the basis of the Second Amendment in Federalist 29, and yet rambles on as though he had some semblance of knowledge.

We don’t need liabilities like Gene James making erroneous proclamations that only serve to create division within our city.
