These poor women were floating through my mind during the Boston Lockdown on Friday. No Criminal charges have been filed, and the charges most certainly would be violation of police protocol, as well as attempted murder, destruction of property and assault with a deadly weapon. The police are refusing to arrest their own, which means this WILL happen again.
Also when people see armored cars filled with police officers clad in full military gear, they seem to think there’s a need for THEM to defend themselves.
On Friday, the nation watched as the Boston area went under lockdown during a manhunt for the armed and dangerous marathon bombing suspect. If you were in that situation, would you want a gun at your side?
Most American voters say yes, according to a new Fox News poll.
Sixty-nine percent say if they were in a situation similar to Bostonians, they would want a gun in their house.
That includes a large 88-percent majority of those in gun-owner households, as well as 50 percent of those in non-gun homes.
So much for 90%! Also isn’t it nice that the towns effected by this lockdown are towns that generally refuse to issue carry permits to citizens, and do everything they can to make life difficult for those who even want a crappy restricted permit.
Be safe out there, people!
