I watched with sadness the press conference conducted by Andy Parker, the father of murdered WDBJ journalist Alison Parker, renewed his call Friday for politicians to enact “reasonable” gun control measures. He said the cause was so important to him that he was willing to become an advocate even if it puts his life in danger.
During the understandably emotional press conference, he called for some level of gun control. He blamed the NRA for a number of unfounded reasons – it is understandable … he just last his beloved daughter and then he said that because HE feared for HIS safety ….. he might “buy a gun”.
This circular logic is understandable because of the emotional turmoil he is going through. But what about the the heavily guarded politicians who would NEVER leave home without their “protection”?
You see, they want YOU unarmed. For them, their own lives and the lives of THEIR loved ones are too important to leave unprotected. In the similar manner in which they love private school for their own progeny but the local “F” rated school is just fine and dandy for your kids.
Let me make you aware of something: The Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.
So when Hillary blows the “call 911” through her teeth in response how YOU should take care of your safety, remember that the perpetrator’s bullet takes a fraction of a second to destroy your vital organs and a few seconds more to wipe out the lives your family.
It might take 10 minutes or more to dispatch a police car or two to arrive at your home, by then……. lights out.
YOU are the first line of defense in YOUR life. I can not think of any crook who will check with the local laws before obtaining a gun….. Ask any resident of Chicago, Baltimore, New York…… and so forth.
