PAUL WEHRLE, San Clemente

I read the article discussing Councilmember James’ desire to have San Clemente be designated a Second Amendment Sanctuary with considerable dismay and absolutely no surprise.

I warned many in this town about the folly of electing him to our city council, but not enough of you listened.

I suspect this is only the beginning of many inane or potentially dangerous proposals that may be emanating from this ultra-right-wing, Trump-loving zealot.

This man, in my opinion, is rather loose with his facts and statements and blames his political opponents and progressives for the current ills in our society, when in reality, that is just not the truth.

What we need are stronger gun laws and maybe not so much firepower on our streets. Council, please do all of us a favor and either censure this loon or vote him off the council.
