The liberal Nanny State makes everyone less safe, and less free. But I’ve never seen an example as obvious as this one.
Consider gun control laws – the facts on the matter are clear: gun control leads to more gun violence. If citizens can’t protect themselves, criminals feel more free to act, and violence rises. Simple, logical, and true. And yet liberals want to remove guns from honest American citizens.
And now they’ve taken it a step further – they want to take those same guns from cops, too.
And the worst part is, it’s not just the libs – it’s the government of Minnesota.
The Conservative Tribune reports:
A mayoral candidate is sure to lose votes after he demanded the police of his city make one major change.
Democrat state rep. and Minneapolis mayoral candidate Raymond Dehn has called for a major overhaul of police policies, and one of those changes involves disarming a large portion of police officers of their sidearms and replacing those guns with pepper spray or a nightstick.
Yes, you read that correctly. Cops without guns.
But this won’t lead to more cop deaths or anything, because the police will still have their guns – just not on their person.
I don’t really have words for this.
Let’s consider the standard Danger Scenario for a cop – he confronts a threat, tells the threat to stand down, and is suddenly faced with a gun-wielding criminal.
Now, because he needs his sidearm, he tells the criminal to wait patiently a moment, walks back to his car, retrieves his gun, returns to the standoff, and tells the criminal to stand down. The criminal, shocked at the sight of the officer’s sidearm, stands down, and is arrested. No one is hurt.
And this is, naturally, how the entire scene will play out.
(I just…can’t. I need a drink.)
Democrat Dehn has made it clear exactly why he wants these measures taken. He has bought into every bad example of Black Lives Matter rhetoric around.
And now he’s using it to make our streets, and cops, less safe.
Vote him out.
