Maybe someone should forward this to Mr Reese:
(from another THR thread on this forum, titled "just like any citizen")
In NYC…: An off-duty Brooklyn cop - who had left her gun at work - was caught defenseless when a masked intruder ambushed her as she arrived home and raped her at knifepoint, officials said yesterday.
The fact that she wasn't carrying at the time would bolster his argument.
Excellent article. I think in states where the citizens are not allowed to carry the police should not be allowed to carry. It would be reasonable. I mean after all its illegal to carry a gun so nobody is doing it right?
I don't think they should be allowed to carry pepper spray or clubs either.
They should only be armed with hugs and kisses...
We're number one! We're number one! [/foam finger]
People everywhere seem to think this nowadays. What is our world coming to, people used to have common sense and actually use that sense, but now that seems to be the exception rather than the norm.
The whole point of his article is how absurd it is to ask anyone, police or civilian, to disarm. He is not really arguing for police to be disarmed.
As much as this piece was done tongue in cheek
the fact remains that it makes more sense - if someone is going to be disarmed - that it be the police. Let's consider VT.
There are always - I hate this term - ordinary citizens on the scene. The numbers say it is unlikely police will be there. If an LEO requires assistance there is a much better chance that a citizen will be available to help than the other way around.
However, there is another consideration and it is high time everyone realized it. One of our members of parliament told me the other day at a charity barbeque that we have many politicians and bureaucrats in this country - and I have no reason to believe the USA is any different - who believe that only the military should be armed. That's right, they want to disarm police as well as the rest of us.
For the thread starter,
Man your compostion started off so strong. I believe also if there is disarmenent...that is total disarmenent. We would have brazin fists.
Good luck, because then only the criminals have guns.
S.W.A.T. only stands for 'police state' no matter how you spell it.
And, there is no way this American public will ever be without gun rights! No way! Because we make 'em, shoot'em, stock pile 'em, love 'em, and protect THEM. Ammo and ALL! We earn these stripes! Evil doer's step aside! Handcuffs for the dumb. Liberty, Decision, and Personal Protection from ALL!
AND I MEAN ALL!!!! No matter who you are!
You are either for our American Constitutional rights.... or you...... are against our Constitution!
That means you too... officer! sergeant! corporal! general! detective! If you go by these names or other public support offices, time to choose if you even like those nice guns you have at YOUR home.
Do you want them to stay at YOUR home? Do you?
Because the UN is next! Bub-by bullets!! Bub-by frail pigeon. Bub-by personal well being. Might as well begin beating and clubing us NOW! Scenes come to mind of U.S.S.R. , Nazi, Rome, North Korea, Sh*t.... prior non-armed countries. You have seen the pictures...the videos.... would you like to live in TOTAL fear? Even with murderers and rapist on the streets of the U.S.A. ...... I still feel safe that the bastards with the clubs and hate and guns aint coming into my house divide me and my family!!! And steal my food and lifehood!! I think most of these bully's want our beautiful wives in their beds. Why else would they.... TAKE the only thing in between.
Do you ALL HEAR really what I am SAYING???
I will remeber to start my own thread. sorry.
