There are a number of cities and municipalities that have caved under the tiny pressure of a handful of raving lunatics and are responding to intimidation by slashing spending on their law enforcement/public safety responsibilities. How exactly do they see that working out over the course of the next few months as various people confronted by arsonists, looters, rapists and murderers have no choice now but to defend themselves with deadly force?
It’s not going to be pretty. The sheep that refused to arm themselves are going to suffer, the well heeled will be out money, time and effort keeping the lawyers fully employed in response to thousands of justified shootings that will still nevertheless clog up court dockets and make life hell for people that have never ventured into that aspect of the misjustice system and it will also be very hard on the criminal class who are going to find dying at the hands of their victims a harsh blow to the freedom to loot, rape, pillage and kill with impunity that they expected after a summer of getting away with murder and all the other crimes.
I’m sort of looking forward to it. We’ll see new voices raised by people that are asked about their take on all this “gun” violence and start to respond by shouting, “Hallalujah Jesus!!!! Thank God I/she/he had a gun and could end this with a bang.”
I foresee a long line of black mourners who aren’t going to be thrilled with what happens when one takes the police who protect the criminals from their victims out of the equation and restores the balance to kill or be killed.
Once again, the side with the guns are most likely to come out of this latest charade of social justice with a wry shake of the head as the “gun victims” start screaming for police protection again.
