The Mob Is Taking Over Police Precincts and Police Weapons But Where Are The Republican Lawmakers?
(Tea Party 247) – The United States is being overrun by the mob of leftist radicals who are rioting and taking over police stations and now even taking possession of police-issued firearms. It seems lawlessness has taken over but it’s all for “justice” so don’t worry.
The worst part is that it seems as though the silent majority of Americans who identify as more conservative than liberal have seemingly been abandoned by Republican lawmakers who would rather pander to the mob than take a hard stance against the chaos and lawlessness.
Where are the Republican lawmakers who are supposed to be sending the message that riots and violence will not be tolerated in the US? Instead of backing the police they’ve abandoned them. Police departments across the country have been left out to dry by cowardly GOP representatives.
Daniel Horowitz wrote about the anarchy and the lack of Republican response for the Conservative Review, saying:
During one of the worst nights of rioting earlier this month, 45 handguns were stolen from one Georgia gun shop. Even worse, rioters are now stealing firearms out of police vehicles. When the politicians send the message to the rioters that they don’t have the backs of the officers, the police back off, use too little force, and allow the anarchists to burn their vehicles. Well, there are often valuable and potentially dangerous tools in those vehicles. Nearly three weeks after that night of rioting, Georgia authorities are still looking for two semiautomatic rifles stolen from burned-out cop cars belonging to Georgia Tech police. In addition, there have been dozens of car break-ins and guns have been stolen out of citizen cars.
Why is there no outrage from Republicans and no push for action to stiffen penalties for gun felonies during riots? They are sitting idly while the corrupt Fulton County prosecutor railroads two cops who acted in self-defense and have now caused police to cede the city streets to the anarchist mob.
This is a problem spreading across the country. 150 guns were stolen from a shop in Albuquerque. At least 40 firearms stolen from a Fayetteville, North Carolina, gun shop, at least 50 guns from a shop in Vacaville, California, and 34 from one in St. Louis.
Has Congress suddenly gotten shy about dealing with gun violence? Wouldn’t now be the best time to deter gun felons with stiffer sentencing? The very same people who push gun control are the ones seeking to avoid locking up gun felons at all costs. What if Republicans, instead of their pandering policing bill, brought a bill to the Senate floor to increase mandatory sentencing on gun felons for those engaging in a violent crime with guns or those caught possessing guns after being convicted of aggravated felonies?
Not only are Republicans sitting idly by why rioters destroy American cities across the country and loot police stations and vehicles, they’re staying silent on gun rights while gun sales are soaring, breaking record numbers for the last 3 months. Shouldn’t that be a clue to Republicans that Americans are concerned about their safety and that being able to own, and open carry, is of utmost importance to voters right now.
If GOP Congress members were serious about winning upcoming elections they would be taking a hard stance on bad guys with guns, like the ones looting and rioting right now, and give good guys with guns more liberty. There is no reason why law-abiding citizens should not be allowed to open carry in all 50 states, just like drivers licenses are valid in all 50 states.
If the Republicans aren’t going to back the police and protect Americans, then the GOP needs to allow private citizens to protect themselves from the current anarchy.
Horowitz also points out:
Instead, GOP senators like Sen. John Cornyn are pushing cheesy pandering bills to codify Juneteenth Day as a federal holiday and promoting DACA amnesty for illegal aliens. Our cities are burning, statues of George Washington and symbols of our civilization are being destroyed, and Republicans do nothing but pander to the mob with weak “me too” political gestures. Who do they think they are appealing to? Not the black business owners who had their stores destroyed.
And most definitely not the silent majority.
