I do not condone any level of street violence, from any side, but let’s ask the very pertinent question again: what do law-abiding citizens do when its government, the State, does not protect them?
I am sure there are many other stories out there that you may know of. Remember what I often say: “An armed individual is a citizen, an unarmed one is a subject.”
For the progressive socialist left, we must subjugate ourselves to Roe v. Wade, and Obergefell v. Hodges (same-sex marriage), as the law of the land, but the left will never honor the Second Amendment, even with court decisions, as the law of the land.
This is not over-the-top hyperbole. This is a reality that has played out elsewhere throughout history with totalitarian governing systems.
Only the irrational mind focuses on the firearm, the tool used to enact violence. The rational individual focuses on the deranged individual, and their intent to do harm.
