Over these last few days, many American cities, particularly Democrat-owned cities, have been practical warzones with endless cases of looting, arson, vandalism, assaults and even a few murders here and there.
Given all the destruction and chaos we have witnessed over social media, television, etc., I cannot help but thank the Lord for our 2nd Amendment rights. I mean, good grief, if there ever was a better reason to own a gun, it is this insanity.
Amidst this chaos, we have seen people looting and burning businesses. But not just any businesses. The businesses that these animals have been looting and destroying all have one thing in common: they were not being protected by armed people.
Take for example a place called Corbo’s Italian Bakery, located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The rioters very well could have ransacked the place for its food or just burned it to the ground. However, two armed individuals made sure that there would be no looting or pillaging of the store. That place was not ransacked and razed to the ground precisely BECAUSE of armed people protecting it.
Those two individuals are doing good work. Better than some police departments, too. I have seen some attempts by law enforcement to quell the riots, but clearly they are being rather ineffective (not everywhere, of course). Matter of fact, Raleigh Police Chief recently said: “I will not put an officer in harms way to protect the property inside of a building.”
In other words, you’re on your own. While no one would disagree that a person's life is more valuable than property, it is the job of the police to protect both life AND property. We are not asking her to send "an officer", implying only one. We are asking her to send however many officers it takes to make sure PEOPLE'S BUSINESSES AREN'T RUINED AND THEIR LIVES DESTROYED AS A RESULT! THAT is the job of the police, otherwise they are not worth the tax money we pay them.
Your business could be facing a massive threat, be it via people looting it AT BEST or people outright setting it on fire, supposedly as a means to “honor” George Floyd. The police won’t be there to stop them, that much is clear. The police won’t protect your business. You have to do it yourself and you sure as heck are not going to be able to do it with words of “peace” or whatever liberal nonsense one might try. You’re not going to convince rioters not to destroy your business because you are also outraged at Floyd’s death; they don’t care about George Floyd, else they would not be doing this. You’re not going to convince them not to destroy your business if you tell them you are their “ally” or are also “progressive,” as Left-wing news outlets like CNN have also been attacked. Not even a knife or a melee weapon would be enough to stop them, since the rioters are generally equipped with such weapons of their own.
The only thing standing in the way of these savages and your business is you and your ability to wield and use, if necessary, a gun. A big one would be preferable, and one that intimidates people. These people are ANTIFA, after all, and they scare easily at the sight of a gun that looks scary. An AR-15 would be pretty ideal.
But considering the gun control legislations in place, it can be difficult for one to acquire a gun to protect themselves or their business. Why else do you think that these riots have occurred pretty strictly in Democrat-controlled cities, counties, states, etc.? And why even in red states like Georgia and Texas, these riots have only occurred in blue cities and counties?
John Nolte from Breitbart put it best: “Antifa knows Democrats are cucks who will allow them to riot. Antifa knows Democrat-run cities have gun control laws that ensure you remain defenseless… Antifa knows you’re stupid enough to vote for the same Democrats who coddle them, who fund them, who aid and abet them by looking the other way (clearly talking about the Democrat voters who live in the Democrat cities that have riots going on). Antifa knows you’re stupid enough to vote for Democrats who disarm you so you cannot defend your family or business. Antifa knows you’re stupid enough to vote for Democrats who arrest people who go to church in their car but not the predominantly white left-wing Antifa thugs who loot and burn black neighborhoods (because white Democrats have been looting and burning black America since Reconstruction).”
In sum, Antifa is rioting in cities that they KNOW won’t put up much resistance. The ONLY reason they were successful in destroying Minneapolis’ 3rd police precinct is because they knew that the city’s limp-stick, Trudeau-Chinese-knockoff mayor would order the police to allow them to do it. When they attack any other police station that is allowed to fight back, they get quickly taken down and they don’t try the same stupidity again.
Moral of the story is that when people are allowed to fight back, the insane and violent people in the world tend to screw off. They know perfectly well that if a particular target of theirs is armed and is not afraid to fight back/doesn’t have orders to stand down, that person is not one that they should target or try anything with.
Wherever these insane and dangerous people meet resistance, particularly of the lethal weapon variety, they tend to be a bit more cautious. They want to riot, destroy and kill, if they can get away with it, but they won’t risk their lives in the process.
Of course, there are those who are just insane enough to get a gun themselves and open fire on people, such as in Oakland, California, where a BLACK police officer was shot and killed last Friday night (I guess his black life didn’t matter) and a second officer was reportedly wounded as well. But that only further demonstrates We the People’s need to be able to defend ourselves.
These people are bad guys and they are particularly threatening and scary when they are the ones with guns. Few of them do, but still, they are too dangerous to be allowed to do this sort of thing. Gun control law doesn’t keep bad guys from getting guns, it only keeps good, law-abiding citizens from getting them.
And such gun control laws show some of their horrible effects in these rioting cities, which generally feature gun-control-heavy laws and police officers being told to stand down to one extent or another.
These last few days have utterly butchered the Leftist idea that “you don’t need a gun” because “the police will be there to help you.” That was never true before, but that talking point was utterly annihilated these days. The only person you can ever trust with your life and your safety is yourself, and that comes through the means of arming oneself.
Even assuming that there aren’t a LOT of bad apples in police departments (and I’m not just talking about racist cops, since a WaPo database shows that, out of 41 unarmed people who were shot and killed by police, 19 were white, 9 were black, 6 were Hispanic, 4 were other and 3 were unknown, so police brutality extends past race), the idea that calling the police is all you need to protect yourself would be laughable if the subject matter weren’t so serious. Often times, the cops aren’t there on time.
Sometimes they might be, sometimes they might be nearby or inside a store being robbed, or something, but the average police response time in the U.S. is TEN MINUTES, according to American Police Beat (ignore the unfortunate name). Police can’t realistically be everywhere and help everyone. In the case of an emergency, where you need prompt action, you simply CANNOT rely on the police to handle everything for you.
For example, if your home were to be intruded and you weren’t armed, you stand the risk of losing your life. Most people would seek some sort of hiding place, like a bedroom closet or a bathroom, etc. However, unless you are living by yourself in a massive mansion (and such places are usually well-guarded by people with GUNS), it’s only a matter of time before you’re found out, at which point you are at the mercy of less-than-reputable individuals.
In high-stress situations, ten minutes feel like an eternity and a lot can happen. Only the fortunate ones live through such experiences without being discovered.
The police simply cannot be one’s lone lifeline in case of an emergency. There is a reason it is a RIGHT for people to protect themselves and their property. When someone kills another person, if it is proven that it was in self-defense, the “killer” is allowed to walk because they were being attacked and they have the right to defend themselves.
Guns are the means through which millions of Americans rightfully and justly defend themselves and their families and property. I can guarantee that if each of the places that were looted and/or burned had armed guards posted on them, be it a small mom-and-pop shop or even Target itself, rioters would think twice about causing mayhem there.
The police, even when allowed to work uninhibited, can only do so much to help even when they want to.
So I don’t want to hear anyone on the Left tell me that I don’t “need” guns because this past weekend has PROVEN otherwise. I need any and all kinds of guns. I need as much ammo as I possibly can have for them. I need to be able to defend myself from clearly disturbed individuals who have little to lose other than their lives and would love nothing more than to see my own end in an instant.
The gun control debate is over. Forever.
