[If they can stick to this, then it will be awesome. Under no conditions must Americans give up their weapons … ever. You can get EVERYTHING BACK later… with your weapons …. including your free speech, etc. And you'll be needing them to deal with your various 5th column enemies inside the USA. I'm delighted to see RESISTANCE! EXCELLENT! Jan]
In light of all the 2nd Amendment debate and the debacle that is Virginia and its governor (who I don’t respect enough to even know his name) spouting off about “If we have constitutional laws…” blah, blah, blah. Listen up.
I work in civilian law enforcement. I am also a veteran.
I work with many veterans, some of whom still serve in the reserves or National Guard. In both oaths, military and civilian, we all swore to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States.
We did not swear to obey a tyrant or dictator.
I’ve been in law enforcement for over 21 years. In all that time I have met not one law enforcement officer who was anti-gun. Oh, I know they exist, but they are not being intellectually honest.
You see, law enforcement officers everywhere KNOW that guns save lives.
Guns prevent crime.
Guns stop attacks.
Guns even the odds between the criminal and his would-be victim.
Guns stop stalkers when a piece of paper doesn’t. (Shout out to my dear friend Ann who shot and killed her estranged husband when came to attack again.)
Real cops, not politicians, KNOW that more honest gun owners mean less crime.
If there is anyone wearing a badge that disagrees with this they are a liar- statistics prove this time and again. Literally every state that loosens gun carry restrictions nearly immediately sees a drop in violent crime.
When I am on patrol, I take time to reach out and thank civilians for exercising their 2A rights- yes, even the open carriers. I have detained or arrested thousands of people.
Not one legal carrier has ever threatened me or my partners.
I even joke about one particular restaurant in my town where veterans meet for breakfast. I say if anything ever pops off in here we are all going to die in the crossfire!
The populace has so many guns they cannot be counted. They couldn’t be confiscated even if the government threw every available resource at it.
The only thing to possibly curb gun ownership is a voluntary buy-back program. Those only work when a populace is convinced that “the children will be safer”.
After all, who doesn’t want safe children, right? Seems I’ve heard that rationale somewhere before.
Why don’t we all study up on history (before the DOE changes it in all the books), lest we repeat it.
Cops and veterans, we are of the same mold. We speak the same language. We get each other, because in many cases we are both.
We are protectors. It’s in our nature. We will stand up for the weak and for the populace.
In many ways, law enforcement IS the best defense against a tyrannical government. I mean just look what Virginia sheriffs have done.
When the governor spoke out of turn, they told him to pound sand before any bills have even passed.
So let’s stop all the boogaloo talk and just stand together.
Cops aren’t coming to your door for your guns.
It just isn’t going to happen.
The Second Amendment is here to stay because we know how important it is. It is an integral part of our fabric. It really does make us all equal in the eyes of the government. It works for the United States of America, the greatest civilization in history.
