A Santa Cruz jury convicted Saldinger more than four years ago of brandishing a weapon after she was arrested during a dispute with neighbors in which she displayed a BB gun as she chased them away from her horse farm. Saldinger and her husband had been feuding with the neighbors for months over the location of the boundary between their two properties.
“The Second Amendment doesn’t have any application to brandishing.” Deputy Attorney General Gregory Ott.
Next will be slingshots, blow guns and pea shooters (plastic straws) in that order. Doesn’t the Ninth Amendment protect the right to “brandishing” a Second Amendment BB gun for the protection of private property?
