Sadly, it’s time to stop being “surprised” by this stuff. Violent crime is spiraling out of control with a seemingly non-stop stream of high-profile mass shootings and street crimes. Our Politicians continue to foster this atmosphere with the non-stop rhetoric of targeting the guns rather than the criminals that are holding them.
If you’re going to regulate gun control, your regulations should have the biggest impact on criminals who are not fit to possess a weapon rather than the law-abiding citizens. Most of the current gun control measures impact the law-abiding citizens far more than they impact the present judicial system punishment of the criminals.
"Until the attitudes and outcry say enough, this is going to continue." We see firsthand on a daily basis that the Police will not be there when you need them. They respond to calls of those who are already in peril, or to a crime scene after the offense has occurred.
So once again, we have a few stories from last month on how the criminals are raising havoc in a civilized society, and of those people who are legally armed and chose to defend themselves, and others. Because no one wants to become just another victim.
A word of caution…..If you don't like hearing the truth, don't read these links. If you just want things in your life sugarcoated, go eat some doughnuts.
