...Sting Like a Bee By: Charles Payne
Charles, you should have checked out Mike Robbins before airing his skewed facts in his interview.
Ex-Councilman Robbins was elected to Council in 1992. He amazed the city with a zeal for guns. His agenda was mostly for gun permits and legalization of carrying concealed weapons. He regularly called local radio shows over the topic – until he was asked to never call again by the KABC host Michael Jackson who suggested, “Sir, you need to get help…” before cutting him off.
Mike continued his work as councilman with the belief that by slashing Law Enforcement Officer’s pay in half, we could hire twice as many. That worked really well; by the time he was voted out, he paved the way for the Police Department to be understaffed for years.
Mike failed to get re-elected in 1996, but garnered a whopping 12% of the votes cast in that election. Although he was only a Councilman for one term and then fired, he certainly hangs his hat on that title, even 14 years later.
I will respond to other points made by this city “Champion,” but I thought this information would be food for thought regarding his interest in the city: Mike believes the government is being taken over by communists and lists many gun sites on his personal home page:
Decide for yourself about his credibility....I think you are awesome and would hate for him to taint your show. There are two sides to every story.
