This is how the Left sees self-defense, and defense of others folks. The hold disdain for it. It is simply unfathomable that anyone with an IQ over 12 could approve of disarming law enforcement.
Chicago’s Aviation Police at the cities two airports are angry because they can’t carry guns at work, and they’re told to run and hide in the event of someone attacking the airport.
“We’re nothing but casualties if you tell us to run and hide” said one of the frustrated officers.
If there is a terror attack, or an armed robbery, or any other sort of violent crime, all Chicago Aviation police can do is stand around helplessly… like the rest of us.
Good for CNN for running the story. This folks, is what the media SHOULD be doing more often.
Of course, this idiocy should not shock anyone, not at all. The sad fact is the Left is far more concerned with hassling law-abiding gun owners than prosecuting thugs who commit crimes with guns
The administration has overseen a striking drop in prosecutions of gun crimes, winning only about 6,000 convictions in 2015 — down more than 15 percent from five years ago, and giving added weight to claims by gun rights groups that President Obama has failed to enforce the laws already on the books.
As a series of high-profile mass shootings has drawn attention to the issue, Mr. Obama has pushed for ever-stricter gun laws prohibiting sales of some firearms and paraphernalia, and more controls on whom they can be sold to.
But the push comes as his lawyers at the Justice Department are winning fewer cases using the laws already passed to ban criminals from buying or owning firearms, according to data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
It comes down to values. And this administration, and the Left in general, cares more about taking guns away from the law-abiding than about prosecuting straw purchasers, armed thugs, or even ensuring terror targets like airports, are secured as well as they can be. Yes, the Left has values, but liberty and self-defense are not among them
