This is a great lesson, of why the Second Amendment is of the utmost importance, and why it must be vigorously defended. Gateway Pundit reports, that on a night of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following a grand jury announcement of the fate of Officer Darrel Wilson, citizens took up arms to defend their livelihoods, at the North St. Louis Strip Mall. As a result, businesses there were not looted, nor burned to the ground.
The result of potential looters, knowing that lives and property are protected by armed citizens, carrying AR15 rifles and pistols is priceless:
“They estimated that 100 cars had come by throughout the night, seemingly to check the place out, but turned away.
Realize that in states and locales across the United States, there are gun prohibition laws, that ban the best firearms for self defense. That discourage or prohibit even the carry of unloaded firearms. As in California. So what recourse do citizens have in such places, were the powers that be are so against self defense, that they put the public at great risk during times of unrest. Where it’s highly likely that police and emergency services cannot or will not respond?
To say that such anti-gun extremists, do the public a great disservice, would be an understatement.
