Once Obama takes away your guns, your town will become like an Inner City. Liberals coddle the criminals, but don’t care what happens to law-abiding inner city residents. All they want is their votes. If a Conservative points out the impact of crime on these residents; he is demonized, called a “racist,” and forced to shut up.
Have you any idea what law-abiding inner city citizens go through? Gangs infest their streets. Crime and drug abuse are rampant. Shooting and murders occur daily. Women and children cannot go out alone at night. Kids are put to sleep in cast-iron bathtubs to be safe from stray bullets.
Meanwhile, Obama and other politicians are protected by armed Secret Service; millionaire Hollywood and Banker Liberals and their kids’ schools are protected by armed guards. Even Obama’s empty Chicago home has round-the-clock secret service protection.
Once your guns are taken away, do you think the police will protect you? Think again!!
Aggressive public unions and their pension demands have bankrupted dozens of cities, including Stockton, San Bernardino, Maywood and Vallejo. CA; Central Falls RI; Harrisburg, PA; Jefferson County, AL and Detroit, MI and states such as Illinois and California. They can’t afford to hire sufficient police officers.
Police Unions are among the worst. Officers can retire at 50 with 90% of their last salary, which is inflated using overtime, car allowances, uniform costs and unused vacation/sick leave. They can buy additional service credits at a steep discount to boost pension checks; and double dip with both government pensions and government paychecks.
Police unions protect their benefits very aggressively. They increase their clout by storming council meetings, creating work slowdowns and putting up billboards publicizing crimes. Stockton had already laid off 25% and planned another 16% cut. In retaliation, the union put up bill-boards asserting Stockton was a dangerous city, that they could not guarantee pubic safety and gave the Manager’s phone number. The police union also purchased the adjacent home, did prolonged and noisy repairs, and harassed the City Manager, his wife and kids. The Manager caved. Now, Stockton is violating all bankruptcy laws and trying to renege on payments to its bondholders so it can continue pension payments.
In Costa Mesa, the police union hired private detectives to investigate and intimidate the councilmen who were trying to reduce their pensions. At Detroit’s Comerica Park, 400 police officers handed out fliers warning spectators: “You enter Detroit at your own risk”
Spending money on pensions forces cities to raise your taxes and also cut down on current police officers. This had led to unprecedented crime waves. Chicago’s 2012 murder rate of 532 exceeded the 405 troop deaths in Afghanistan. Philadelphia is now Kill-a-delphia. Homicides in Stockton have tripled in the past four years. Homicides have risen 60% in Flint, Michigan. Homicides are up 52% in two years in San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland. Police response times are extremely slow. San Bernardino’s murder rate went up 50% last year and its city attorney finally advised his residents to “lock their doors and load their guns!”
Once Obama takes away your guns, you will be totally dependent on the cops. But police unions demand more money and drive your city into bankruptcy. As your city cuts down on current police officers, the crime and murder rates will rise exponentially.
When your town has few cops and you have no guns for self-protection; your town will deteriorate into an Inner City ghetto. And you will be at the mercy of gangs and rapists, exactly like those in the Inner Cities of America.
Still think gun control is a great idea?
