ABOUT THE INTERVIEW
San Diego Union Tribune
During public comment, Michael Schwartz, of San Diego County Gun Owners, spoke out against Del Mar including the “outright ban” language in the resolution stating that it was “inappropriate” for a school board to advance an anti-second amendment agenda.
“Most of the resolution is fantastic. Everybody wants children to be safe and be in a safe environment but unfortunately it goes off the rails wildly when it starts to talk about the second amendment issues and banning guns specifically,” Schwartz said.
Schwartz said that to pass a resolution against semi-automatic weapons was “extreme” when approximately 65 percent of the guns owned by civilians in America are semi-automatic and 80 percent of those sold are semi-automatic.
