Our crime problem starts with criminals.

Yes…, our crime problem starts with criminals, and the democrats have chosen to support the criminals over innocent law abiding citizens.  

Howard Kurtz of Fox News reports that, “Biden moves on guns as surging crime has Democrats on the defensive.”

Not quite, Howard.  I’m sure the democrats don’t feel their “on the defensive” at all.  As a matter of fact, things are going nicely according to plan as far as they’re concerned.

What we’re seeing, regarding homicides, shootings, and other crimes, is A DIRECT RESULT OF DEMOCRAT POLICIES regarding the elimination of bail requirements, letting violent criminals back out into the community, district attorneys choosing not to prosecute violent criminals or any criminals for that matter, the defunding of police, and the limiting of police response options and general support.  

Kurtz continues, “As the carnage continues, the rise in urban crime is ‘staggering’ and ‘sobering.’”

“Carnage” is a good choice of words!

The truth is you’d be much, much, much safer opting to do a tour of duty in Afghanistan right now, as opposed to spending some time in Chicago!

In fact, this could apply to a long list of democrat run American cities.”

The democrats like to say “this isn’t a red or a blue issue,” but, I’m sorry…, this most definitely a blue (democrat) created problem that they don’t want to address.  

“That’s not some police commissioner or Republican lawmaker decrying the surge in violence. It’s President Biden’s deputy attorney general, Lisa Monaco.”

I’m sorry, Lisa, but it appears you’re just not cut-out for this job!

You may want to start looking for a new line of work.

Kurtz continues by saying, “The spike in homicides and other major crimes is becoming a political albatross for the Democrats, who run nearly all these major cities. And that’s why Biden gave a crime speech Wednesday when he’d rather be focusing on vaccines or infrastructure or just about anything else.”

Actually, he’d rather be having some warm milk and cookies, before getting ready to go “nite-nite,” but I digress.

“Unfortunately for the president, and urban America, he has few tools at his disposal, which is why he’s concentrating mainly on guns, despite his failure to get any legislative traction on that subject or police reform. The Justice Department is creating several strike forces to go after illegal gun trafficking in the largest cities.”

No, Howard…, the reason he’s “concentrating mainly on guns” is because that’s what the progressives, otherwise known as anti-Americans, want to concentrate on.  They want to concentrate on removing guns from the hands of decent, law abiding people, by trying to create all of these new restrictive gun laws.

Just a little reminder here…, CRIMINALS DON’T OBEY LAWS!

Shooting someone, killing someone, armed robbery, etc, are already against the law!  Adding another restrictive law will only effect people who are already obeying the law and not the criminals.

Oh…, and additionally, a law is only as effective as the resulting punishment for breaking it.

Again, a law is only as effective as the resulting punishment for breaking it.

If you really want to stop gun crime, all you have to do is establish a policy where if you commit a crime with a gun, you get a mandatory 20 year sentence…, minimum.  

Most of the people committing gun crimes have long rap sheets and a history of breaking the law. 

The real problem is democrats are willing to accept the costs these criminals impose on our communities as a trade-off for an excuse to take guns out of the hands of law abiding people, which will eventually allow them to rule with impunity over the American people.  

They’re, the democrat Nazis are, jealous of China’s ability to dictate everything to their people, with no fear of repercussions.  

“Biden’s workmanlike speech mostly repeated talking points on gun control (the sellers are ‘merchants of death,’ and we need a ‘ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines’).”

Is that what that was, “workmanlike?”

Struggling to coherently read someone else’s words from a teleprompter, while looking and sounding like you missed your nap, is far from “workmanlike,” and much closer to embarrassing and uninspired.

Gun Laws 101.

Class is now in session!

Here is my third public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Gun Laws 101.”

Okay…, well, let’s get the class rolling.

Are you ready?

Here we go.

The first thing we have to recognize is that CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Again…, CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

So, for our democrat friends, especially Illegitimate Joe, Cackling Kamala, Crazy Nancy Pelosi, and Upchuck Schumer…, here is the breaking news:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Did you get that, Joe, Kamala, Nancy, Chuck, along with the rest of your clueless democrat friends?

And truthfully, there are some clueless, establishment republicans who need reminding as well.

So, just in case you missed it:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

The only people any gun laws you pass will have any effect on are the law-abiding gun owners who are not the problem in the first place.

Again:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

Okay, so, back to addressing my students.

So, whenever we hear these disingenuous politicians pontificating on the new gun laws they are proposing, just be aware that it is a bunch of hot air that will do absolutely nothing, regarding gun violence in our country.

NOTHING.

CRIMINALS DO NOT BUY THEIR GUNS AT DICK’S SPORTING GOODS, BASS PRO SHOPS, OR CABELAS.

CRIMINALS USE STOLEN GUNS OR GUNS THEY GET ILLEGALLY OFF THE BLACK MARKET.

So, the politicians can make legally buying a firearm as difficult as they want, but these added requirements only make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase a gun.

THESE ADDED ROAD BLOCKS TO BUYING A GUN HAVE NO EFFECT ON CRIMINALS OBTAINING A WEAPON.

NONE.

The ironic part of this whole issue is that we already have plenty of gun laws on the books to deter gun violence.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COURTS DON’T PROPERLY ENFORCE THE LAW!

OVER 75% OF PEOPLE WHO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS!

PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF CIRCULATION AND PUT AWAY FOR A LONG TIME.

WE HAVE TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT IF YOU USE A GUN ILLEGALLY, YOU WILL NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO AGAIN.

It is not hard to figure out, that if we do this, within a few years, the rate of crime involving a weapon will go way down.

WAY DOWN.

Gun laws are there to protect law-abiding citizens.

IF THE COURT SYSTEM CHOOSES TO TREAT GUN CRIME LIGHTLY, THEY DO SO AT THE EXPENSE OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMES AGANST SOCIETY AS WELL.  

So, do we really need any new gun laws?

No.

IF THE POLITICIANS REALLY WANT TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE, ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS DEMAND THAT OUR CURRENT LAWS ARE ENFORCED, AND THAT USING A GUN ILLEGALLY WILL BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

The sad part is they already know this, but they knowingly choose to put the “rights” of criminals ahead of the rights of the victims and law-abiding citizens, like you and me.

They make sure they’re protected though.

It’s the ultimate challenge a free society has to face.

The laws that allow us to enjoy freedom are the same laws that allow the haters of America’s freedoms to attack our freedom.  

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

Hey…, I’m just trying to do my part!

Biden should be impeached!

Based on his remarks and intentions, regarding the 2nd Amendment to The Constitution, “President” Joe Biden has violated his oath of office, and should thus be removed from office.

Article II of The Constitution, referring to the president, and concerning executive power, Section 1, Clause 8 states: “Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Joe Biden said these words while placing his hand on a Bible, a short two and a half months ago.

Now, he is already breaking that oath. 

The Second Amendment, one of the ten amendments to the Constitution comprising the Bill of Rights, states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” 

Did you get that?

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

What part of that does Joe Biden not understand? 

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “President Biden on Thursday announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control, saying that gun violence is ‘a public health crisis’ and the administration’s actions do not contravene Second Amendment rights.”

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

“The administration aims to ‘confront not just the gun crisis but what is actually a public health crisis,’ Biden said in his remarks in the Rose Garden. He was joined by Vice President Harris.”

‘“Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,’ Biden said. ‘These are phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake from what we’re talking about.’”

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

“Continuing, Biden said: ‘But no amendment to the Constitution is absolute … From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons. So, the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution.’”

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

“An administration official detailed the actions to reporters on Wednesday. Among them, Biden is asking the Justice Department (DOJ) to propose within a month a rule to stop ‘ghost guns,’ which are ‘kits’ people can buy legally to assemble a functioning firearm that does not have a serial number.”

For your information, Joe, there are already federal laws regarding “ghost guns.”

“Biden is also asking the DOJ to propose within 60 days a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate; to propose action on ‘community violence intervention’; to publish suggestions for ‘red flag’ legislation; and is asking his administration to issue a report on gun trafficking.”

“Biden also formally announced David Chipman as the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).”

“A senior administration official Wednesday said that Chipman will respect the Second Amendment while he enforces gun laws.”

Respecting the Second Amendment and following the law of the Second Amendment are not necessarily the same. 

Just for the record, Chipman is a good little Nazi, in my opinion, and should not be the head of of anything, or even work in the government, period.

‘“I’ve seen with my own two eyes what a bullet can do to the human body … and I’ve fought my entire career to fight this violence and to pass reasonable gun safety measures,’ Harris said as she introduced Biden.”

‘“What are we waiting for? Cause we aren’t waiting for a tragedy… We’ve had more tragedy than we can bear,’ she said. ‘The solutions exist… people on both sides of the aisle want action, real people … so all that is left is the will and the courage to act.’”

Yes, we know Kamala. Tragedy strikes every weekend in the city of Chicago, regarding gun deaths, and they already have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

You seem to choose to ignore, Kamala, the fact that CRIMINALS DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW! 

“The Biden administration is also expected to throw its weight behind gun control proposals in Congress.”

‘“Enough prayers, time for some action,’ Biden said of Congress. ‘I believe the Senate should immediately pass three House-passed bills to close loopholes that allow gun purchases, purchasers, to bypass the background checks.’”

What about people like your son Hunter, Joe? 

What about people like your son, Hunter, who lie on the application and illegally obtain a firearm, and then are not even punished for it?

What good does passing another law do if no one is punished for breaking it?  

I’m sure no one present from the press thought to ask Illegitimate Joe that question.

“He also pushed for two gun control laws that would go even further than that.”

‘“We should also ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country,’ Biden said. He said ‘there’s no reason’ a person would need a weapon that can hold ‘100 rounds.’”

Please remember, Joe, that the Second Amendment was not written regarding deer hunting…, it was written to make sure the people could stand up against a hostile and oppressive government, either foreign or domestic.   

‘“We should also eliminate gun manufacturers from the immunity they receive from the Congress,’ Biden said, referring to the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), a law that prevents gunmakers from being sued for crimes committed with guns they sell legally.”

To even suggest this is utterly ignorant.

Should we allow car companies to be sued when people kill and injure people with their cars?

Should we allow Alcohol manufacturers to be sued when people kill and injure people after getting drunk off of their products?

It would be nice, Joe, if you could stop and think about what you’re saying before letting this type of stupidness come out of your mouth.

‘“This is the only outfit that is exempt from being sued,’ he continued. ‘If I get one thing on my list… give me that one because I tell you what there would be a come to the Lord moment these folks would have real quickly.’”

Beside lying here, “cognitively challenged” Joe then doubles down on his idiocy.

“Republicans, meanwhile, have expressed their suspicion of Biden’s agenda which goes even further than what he announced Thursday.”

Really?

The republicans “have expressed their suspicion of Biden’s agenda?”

Wow.  These republicans are really sharp! You can’t get anything past them!

‘“By appointing the anti-gun Merrick Garland as attorney general and nominating David Chipman — formerly a senior staffer at the leading gun control lobby —  to head ATF, Biden has made clear his sights are set on restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners while ignoring criminals and foregoing substantive measures that will actually keep Americans safe,’ the National Rifle Association (NRA) said in a statement.”

And you can add Biden’s name right next to Obama’s.

‘“Further, the proposals Biden announced tonight could require law-abiding citizens to surrender lawful property and enable states to expand gun confiscation orders. The NRA will fight this nomination and ill-conceived executive actions,’ the NRA also said.”

Good for the NRA.  At least they speak the truth, exhibit some common sense, and stand up for The Constitution.    

“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., added: ‘President Biden plans to announce his attempts to trample over our constitutional 2A rights by executive fiat. He is soft on crime, but infringes on the rights of law-abiding citizens. I won’t stand for it. And neither will House Republicans. Follow the Constitution!’”

Those are nice words, Kevin.  Let’s see how you follow through on them.

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said, ‘The answer is not to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, the answer is to go after violent criminals and come down on them like a ton of bricks.’”

Again, agreed, but why aren’t we dealing effectively with violent criminals already?

Word, words, words.

Boy, do I miss President Trump.

The choice is really quite simple.

Our presidential election is only a few weeks away. 

We have the choice between the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, and the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Yes, we have to vote for one of these two men, but we also need to consider what these two men represent.

Let’s review what you apparently support by voting for either the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, or the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Democrats/liberals believe it is a woman’s right to abort a baby right up to the moment before birth.

Republicans/conservatives believe all babies have a right to be born and live. 

Democrats/liberals support defunding police departments.  All criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe if anything, police department support needs to be increased.

Democrats/liberals support taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Again, all criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe law abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves and bear arms, as guaranteed in The Constitution.

Democrats/liberals believe anyone from anywhere should be able to freely walk right into our country whenever they feel like it.  The drug cartels and human traffickers love this.

Republicans/conservatives believe our borders should be secure, limiting who can and who can’t come in at any given time, while affording us an orderly and managed legal immigration process.

Democrats/liberals believe in tearing down monuments to our history as a country.

Republicans/conservatives believe in honoring and learning from our history, not trying to erase it.

Democrats/liberals support “sanctuary” cities and states, where illegal immigrants can live without fear of being taken into Federal custody and charged with crimes or be deported.

Republicans/conservatives believe illegal immigrants are “illegal” and are here illegally, and should be treated as such. Republicans/conservatives also believe that the concerns of legal citizens should come before those of illegal immigrants.  

Democrats/liberals support raising taxes across the board.  They claim working class people won’t be affected, but we all know higher tax rates for companies and corporations are just passed down to us.

Republicans/conservatives support the continued reduction of taxes across the board.

Democrats/liberals immediately take money from the military at their earliest opportunity, weakening our nation’s defense.

Republicans/conservatives believe a strong military is an absolute necessity in today’s global environment.  The defense of our country is also the federal government’s primary responsibility per The Constitution.

…   

Democrats/liberals love implementing a seemingly never-ending list of federal regulations designed to suffocate construction, business operations, and whatever else they can think of to stifle our civil liberties.

Republicans/conservatives believe some regulations are necessary, but that less regulation is preferable in order promote businesses and maintain a strong economy.  

… 

Democrats/liberals feel it is a good idea to allow anyone living in our country to vote, regardless of whether they are here legally or not, and regardless of whether the voter has any proper ID to prove who they are.  

Republicans/conservatives believe only legal citizens should be allowed to vote, and that an ID should be required.

Democrats/liberals believe that government should be the “end all be all” for anyone living in America.

Republicans/conservatives believe that government is a “necessary evil,” and that most things are done more efficiently and cheaper by the private sector.

Democrats/liberals believe in a person’s dependence on government, and that having some form of a socialist government is more desirable that our capitalist system, even though no socialist government in the past can be pointed to as a successful government.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in our capitalist way of doing things, providing for ourselves as a rule, and system which allows individuals to rise to any level of success, dependent on the individuals’ desire to attain it.

 … 

Democrats/liberals believe in free speech as long as your speech agrees with their beliefs, if not, they have no problem with censoring or silencing you.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in the 1st Amendment, and that everyone has a right to their own opinions and that they have a right to voice those opinions. 

Democrats/liberals believe rioting, burning, and looting are acceptable forms of “peaceful protesting.”  They believe in deferring to the desires of “the mob” as opposed to following the law.

Republicans/conservatives believe in law and order, and that no one has the right to harm other people or their property as part of their “protest.”

Democrats/liberals prefer to operate in a way that highlights a person’s racial identity, gender identity, or sexual preference above all else…, except their political leaning.  

Republicans/conservatives prefer to identify people by the quality of their character and by their actions and beliefs, without concern for race, color, or creed.

Democrats/liberals believe the United States’ industry, people and economy need to be punished and restricted due to “climate change,” while the rest of the world is allowed to keep right on polluting and taking advantage of us.

Republicans/conservatives believe if “climate change” is real, it wasn’t caused by us and we have no real way of affecting “climate change” one way or the other.

Democrats/liberals believe fossil fuels are evil and need to be done away with.  

Republicans/conservatives believe fossil fuels are still the energy souce of choice right now, at least until other options become viable. Republicans/consrvatives like the US having energy independence, not having to rely on the Middle East for anything, contolling our own energy pricing.

Democrats/liberals believe it’s okay for the “media” to operate as an arm of the democrat party, reporting only things that support their narrative, while attacking republicans/conservatives, and especially President Trump on a daily basis.  

Republicans/conservatives believe the “media” should report from an unbiased point of view, acting as a watchdog against all government improprieties, regardless of which party it is. 

And what about the economy?

Democrats/liberals point to the economy after China, and the democrats I believe, dropped the coronavirus bomb on us.  

Republicans/conservatives point the hottest economy in history, prior to the China virus, and believe President Trump can get our econmy humming again. Without the release of “The virus,” the democrats would not have stood a chance in this election.  

So, like I said in the beginning, “The choice is really quite simple.”  

The differences between democrats/liberals and republicans/conservatives have never been more obvious. 

The question is which side are you on?

If you’re having a hard time deciding who to vote for, you are obviously one confused individual!

There should be no undecided voters at this point. 

If you really are undecided, then maybe you shouldn’t even bother voting.

Just sayin’.

The liberal mantra is “Do as I say, not as I do!”

Over the Labor Day weekend, 35 people were shot in the city of Chicago, and seven people were killed as a result of gun violence.

Unless you were tuned into Fox News you probably didn’t hear about this.

That’s because this, of course, was ignored by democrats and their partners in crime, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” because Chicago already has many of the gun laws which are being proposed by democrats to solve gun violence nationally.

chitown 6

chitown 9

Another example of “propaganda by omission.”

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot clashed with Sen. Ted Cruz over the latest burst of gun violence in the city, claiming Monday that Chicago’s decades-long crime problem is actually the fault of Republican-run states like Indiana – because they don’t have ‘commonsense gun legislation’ in place.”

Ohhhh, riiiiight.  I get it.  Of course…, Chicago’s crime rate and gun violence problems are due to the Republicans in Indiana!

Makes sense to me…, NOT!

I guess you have to have some sense before you can have any common sense, Ms. Lightfoot.

She then added that Senator Cruz should, ‘“Keep our name out of your mouth.’”

Oooooh.  That sounds like a threat!

chitown 5

It also sounds like Lori Lightfoot (Seriously?) is trying to deny Senator Cruz his right of freedom of speech.

Do as we say, not as we do.

It sounds like she had “republicans” in her mouth.

It sounds like she had “Indiana” in her mouth.

Do as we say, not as we do.

chitown 10

“The retort came after Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted that ‘gun control doesn’t work’ and pointed to the Democrat-run city as evidence that ‘disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.’ His tweet referenced an article reporting that at least 35 people were shot in Chicago during Labor Day weekend amid a continuing crime wave in the city.”

‘“Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates,’ Cruz tweeted. ‘Let’s protect our citizens.’”

Lightfoot, who was elected mayor of Chicago earlier this year, then tweeted something about Indiana, Wisconsin and Mississippi and recovered firearms.

chitown 2

chitown 14

chitown 3

Now she’s got “Wisconsin” and Mississippi” in her mouth as well.

Mississippi?  Really?  What the hell does Mississippi have to do with Chicago?

Do as we say, not as we do.

Don’t you know it’s everyone and anyone’s fault EXCEPT the poor helpless people of Chicago.

chitown 4

She then went on to call Republicans ‘cowards’ and blah, blah, blah and blah, blah, blah.

If this feud goes on much longer, we’re bound to see the race card come out!

‘“When @tedcruz and the @gop dismiss common sense gun policies, they disrespect victims and their families, who deserve to live without pain and fear,’ she [Lori Lightfoot] added.”

chitown 11

chitown 12

Yes, Ms. Lightfoot…, “disrespected victims and their families,” in the city of Chicago, do “deserve to live without pain and fear.”

The people of Chicago also deserve more than the poor excuse for a mayor you are.

Crowd taunts and throws things at Philadelphia police officers…, during latest standoff and shootout!

Believe me my friends…, the wild, wild, west was never this wild…, and certainly not this stupid.

Danielle Wallace of Fox News reports that, “Onlookers were seen taunting and throwing things at Philadelphia police Wednesday night amid a wild shootout and subsequent standoff that saw six cops wounded, and video posted online shows one woman shoving a police officer making his way to the scene.”

Put your cursor on the hyperlink, press “ctrl” and click to watch the video.

https://youtu.be/Qc5RUGgb-6A

Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reporter Alexandria Hoff said, “A major moment of disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire!”

philly 4

philly 5

Unbelievable.

philly 1

Who are these “people?”

And I use the term “people” begrudgingly.

philly 7

‘“Several officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant at the multifamily home — in connection with what may have been a drug-related offense — when things “went awry almost immediately,” and the shooter opened fire,’ Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. said.”

“The dramatic shootout in Philadelphia stretched on for more than eight hours as six officers were shot.”

“After withstanding more than five hours of gunfire, SWAT officers managed to get the two officers and three hostages out of the residence safely. The gunman eventually surrendered just after midnight Thursday, exiting the residence with his hands in the air and with a police light shining on him, surrounded by a cloud of tear gas.”

I applaud these officers for doing their jobs and risking their lives…, but on the other hand I have to wonder “who the hell would want to be a cop in these big cities these days?!”

You couldn’t pay me enough to put up with that crap, while risking my life everyday on top of it.

How long is it going to be before there won’t be anyone to do that job?

How long is it going to be before the gangs and drug lords run the cities and are the law there?

How far away are we from an “Escape from New York” type of scenario?

philly 2

In case you’re not familiar with this movie, “Escape from New York” is a movie made in 1981 about a crime-ridden United States in 1997, (We’re over 20 years past that now!) where New York City’s Manhattan Island (the entire island) has been converted into a maximum-security prison, and “once you go in you never come out.”

Think about it.

How far are we away from just abandoning some of these cities and letting these people who want to live in a lawless world just sit there and kill each other off whenever they want?

If they don’t want the police there and they don’t appreciate the police there, then fine…, but then realize you’re on your own, and don’t come crying later.

As usual, there are all kinds of calls for additional gun control laws, blah, blah, blah…, blah, blah, blah.

philly 11

Excuse me…, but isn’t discharging a weapon in the city already a crime?

philly 9

Isn’t shooting at police officers already a crime?

Isn’t attempted homicide already a crime?

The problem here is with the individual.

The problem here is with the “justice” system.

philly 10

This individual already had a criminal record as long as your arm.

According to Travis Fedschun of Fox News, “Court documents obtained by FOX29 show Maurice Hill’s [the shooter’s] lengthy criminal history, including a least a dozen arrests since he turned 18.  The 36-year-old has been in and out of prison since 2002 after convictions for such crimes as illegal possession of guns and aggravated assault.”

“Records obtained by FOX29 also showed dozens of serious charges over the years that were later withdrawn in court.”

“Hill also spent time in federal prison, pleading guilty to federal firearms violations in 2008.”

The problem is he should have never been out on the street and free to commit another crime.

The problem is they should have locked this guy up a long time ago and thrown away the key.

The people of Philadelphia are extremely lucky that the incompetent liberal court system there didn’t cost someone their life in this latest shooting.

As usual, the liberals are demonstrating they are good at exploiting a situation rather than helping to realistically address the situation.

philly 8

Slapping people on the wrists for using a gun illegally just can’t be acceptable anymore.  They need to be taken out of circulation and put away.

Using a weapon improperly needs to be treated with zero tolerance.

Build 20 more prisons for these people if need be.  It would definitely be worth all of the innocent lives we would save.

Chicago’s a “sanctuary” city?

Chicago, Illinois and its liberal democrat leadership claim it be a “sanctuary” city.

I think you’d be safer walking around downtown Baghdad, taking a hike through North Korea or spending a weekend in Benghazi.

According to Merriam-Webster, “sanctuary” means “a place of refuge or safety.”

Elizabeth Llorente of Fox News reported that “Chicago has most violent weekend this year: 52 shot, 10 dead.

chicago 2

Wow…, 52 shot and 10 dead in one weekend!  Those numbers prompted me to look more closely at some other numbers.

My first reaction when I saw these numbers was that these numbers remind me of numbers you might see in a real “war zone.”

So I decided to look at the casualty numbers from the war in Afghanistan and see how the “sanctuary” city of Chicago compared.

From 2012-2018, 6 years, the total number of deaths suffered by our military personnel in Afghanistan was 857.

From 2012-2018, 6 years, the total number of gun deaths recorded in Chicago, Illinois was 1,216.

You can tack on another 20,000 or so casualties during that time frame as well.

This is a “sanctuary” city?

A “sanctuary” for who?

Chicago is the third largest city in the United States.

It is also, by definition, a “war zone.”

Actually…, based on the numbers, Chicago is worse than the war zone in Afghanistan.

According to Kristine Frazao of WJLA-TV in Washington D.C., “Some states with strictest gun laws also have the most dangerous cities.”

“One of the top ten states with the most restrictive gun laws in the country is Illinois, where last year there were 650 murders in Chicago alone, according to a USA Today’s compilation of crime data.”

“In Maryland, another state with some of the strictest gun laws in the country, Baltimore had 343 murders last year and has highest per capita murder rate in the nation. The city was also just named the most dangerous city in America by USA Today.”

Liberals still haven’t figured out that criminals typically don’t follow “the law!”  Or maybe they have, but they just don’t care.

“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has said she’s considering replacing Johnson [Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson], but will not decide until after a more thorough study of the city’s problems, according to WGN-TV.”

“A study of the city’s problems?”

“A study of the city’s problems?”

Just off the top of my head…, I would say there are too many criminals on the streets with too many weapons.  Now that’s just off the top of my head mind you.

“On Twitter, [Department spokesman Anthony] Guglielmi assailed a program known as ‘I-Bond’ that allows Cook County offenders to be released on a no-cash bond. The program was implemented in 1982 to address jail overcrowding.  But critics long have said it provides criminals a fast way to get back on the streets.”

‘“Letting gun offenders out on I-Bonds shows there is absolutely no repercussion for carrying illegal guns in Chicago,’ Guglielmi tweeted.”

Again…, just off the top of my head…, I would say these I-Bond things are a real issue as well…, but that’s just off the top of my head…, again, mind you.

In my mind, you would address jail overcrowding by building a bigger jail or another jail…, not letting criminals back out on the street who are a threat to the community…, but that’s just me.

What?!

Are you kidding me?!

Again…, just off the top of my head now…, I would say that part of the problem is that some of these gang members are not even human beings!

These people don’t need to be let out on bail when they’re caught…, they need to be locked up and the key thrown away…, regardless of how much it costs to keep them behind bars.

The alternative is more people are going to die.

These liberal “do gooders,” which is a fallacy all on its own, should be forced to live in the neighborhoods these “things” prey on.

They are obviously willing to take their chances with the lives of other law abiding citizens in Chicago…, why not their own?
