Stupid Media Idea - "We trusted the police to keep it peaceful"

You have to dig a bit in these stories, but the quote from one of the store owners tells you everything you need to know about the underlying assumption.

"There's no police," he said. "We trusted the police to keep it peaceful; they didn't do their job."
Therein lies the heart of stupid. Note that the store owner is saying this "with a large black gun resting on his shoulder". Damn straight. Cops fill out reports, and call the coroner to haul bodies away. It is obviously a bad idea to expect them to stop a crime in progress. Better to prevent the crime attempt in the first place.

Had a weekend coffee meeting with LB this morning, so choose this for my message of the day, and was bemused that some folks glanced at it, but didn't make any comments. I don't really want to meet strangers, but I do enjoy irritating spineless lefties. If one of them is foolish enough to open a tête-à-tête, I always have a bit of time to hammer on stupid. I think of it as productive community service.

Sometimes, the only answer for impending or active violence is violence. A man should choose wisely, but have prepared so that they have the means necessary at-hand.

Since it is summertime, LB and I discussed some options for discrete versus open carry. Perhaps more on that later.
