“No one should say ‘this is a great place to raise kids’ about neighborhoods where even one person has an assault rifle.”

— Los Angeles Times opinion columnist, Virginia Heffernan

Thankfully the L.A. Times, Los Angeles has relatively low [legal] gun ownership rates, so obviously it must be “a great place to raise kids.” Like the kids playing with the police car in the lead photo.

Meanwhile, Ms. Heffernan was born and raised in New Hampshire, which has a gun ownership rate 45 percent higher than that of California. It’s a wonder she survived growing up in what was almost certainly a “bad neighborhood” by her standards.
