If anyone wants to add another piece of evidence to the argument in favor of granting more freedom to have firearms for self defense, we need look no further than Baltimore's mayor: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/201...reddie-gray-protesters-who-wished-to-destroy/ It seems that she believed that the rioters needed some space to destroy if they chose to do so in order for them to be safe as they exercised their First Amendment rights. As a result, the Baltimore police were directed to stand by and allow mayhem to ensue, unchecked. Once again, we have had a city government stand by and allow the dregs of society to loot, riot, burn, and batter because they didn't want to offend the anarchic scum. As long as it is other people's property and lives at risk, they have no compunctions about sacrificing something of someone else's all in the name of appeasing criminals. And they dare to declare that we should remain unarmed and just rely upon their security. Obviously, the government is not a reliable source of security, and We The People must provide it for ourselves when the chips are down. Ultimately, opponents of the Second Amendment have no leg to stand on. The proof is in the pudding. City and state governments will fail us, and we must exercise our Constitutional rights if we are to avoid death or financial ruin when chaos ensues. It's a terrible shame that we have reached such a point in our history where we are vilified for wanting to have the means to protect what is precious to us when the very institutions implemented to do so refuse to carry out their sworn duties. May the NRA and every other pro-2A organization shout this from the highest buildings.
