Yes, You Need a Gun During the Virus Scare..and After

March 23, 2020

You want to have a gun before you need it. Advocates of armed defense have been saying that for decades, though recent events underlined their point. Last month, sentencing reforms in some states effectively decriminalized theft under about 900$. We saw stores stripped by flash-mobs. Police refused to investigate a “misdemeanor” crime even though the total loss may be tens-of-thousands of dollars. Those sentencing revisions also let more serious criminals out of jail without bail. The revolving door of injustice spun pretty fast after that. Last week, some cities let convicted thugs out of jail because of a flu virus. States closed gun shops and promise to arrest you if you leave your home. Police in some cities refuse to respond to crime in progress due to the risk from public contact. Yes, you need a gun.. and you need a lot more.

These recent headlines highlight an obvious fact. These events let us see that we are on our own. If we’re attacked, the police arrive after we’ve gotten to safety, after we’ve made the call to 911, and if law enforcement has personnel available to help us. It is up to us to defend ourselves until the police arrive.

That realization changed last week, but only by a matter of degree. Now we’re in the middle of a virus scare and police may or may not respond to our calls. Today, law enforcement in many cities are refusing to come to the scene of the crime if the criminal threat is gone. As you’d expect, crime increases when criminals are not pursued, arrested, jailed, charged, and prosecuted. Today, you are at a greater risk, but you were never completely safe.

Many people wanted to believe that they’d be safer if they were unarmed. Our experience with armed citizens says otherwise, and so do the recent headlines. Many people who were only vaguely aware of self-defense now see the need for a personal firearm. I’m sorry, but for many of you it is too late to become armed defenders.

First, you’d need a gun. Some states said that gun shops were “non-essential businesses” so they were told to close their doors. We’ve seen panic buying that emptied store shelves. If you wanted a gun, now you’re too late.

You thought you needed a gun, but you also need a holster, ammunition, and cleaning supplies for that firearm. Some states require a permit before you may buy a gun. Some states also stopped processing those firearms purchase permits. If you’re not ready now, then you’re too late.

You want to protect yourself and your family, but two thirds of aggravated assaults happen away from home. That means that you might need a permit to legally carry a firearm as you walk to your mailbox. States that disregard the right of self-defense have stopped processing those concealed carry permits.

The advocates for armed defense have been warning you about these infringements for years, and now you’re too late.

You thought that owning a gun would make you safer, but a firearm is useless without the skills to use it. Fortunately, defending your family from thugs coming up the stairs doesn’t take a lot of skill. Unfortunately, it takes skill to defend your family from several thugs converging on you at night from between the parked cars in the grocery store parking lot. If you haven’t developed that skill, then you’re depending on luck, and there are usually several attackers.

How did you get here? The public receives the public policies for which they voted. Now, you’re paying the price with your family’s safety. I hope you’re one of the lucky ones and no one is hurt.

I like that you want to defend your family. Now defend the right to do so. The right of honest citizens to keep and bear arms should not be infringed. This virus scare will pass, but the infringements on your rights of armed defense will remain.. until you remove them. Don’t wait until November. Secure your rights before you need them. Become politically active now, or the rights you lost will be lost forever.. and then you’re depending on luck.

    Great article Rob.
    But don’t worry:
    H.R.5717 – Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020
    THIS will keep us safe!
    The destruction of the Second Amendment, being quietly pushed in under the cover of THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC, BEHIND THE SCENES!
    They never rest, they never lose their focus.

    A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression. Flash mobs may be organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.

    I’m a retired cop, with 37 years of West Coast, urban policing. Most HONEST cops realize that there’s no way the police can protect any single citizen, or non-citizen for that matter. Sure, real cops will bust their butts and risk their lives to respond to your call for help, but in vast majority of cases, the offender is gone before you can get a dial tone. They’ll do their best to get you medical help if needed, and will make an honest effort to catch the criminal/s, but the ugly truth is; the bad guys too often get away with it. Even if they should be caught, it’s increasingly unlikely to be prosecuted.

    Now the jails are being cleared out, criminal behavior is being de-criminalized, and honest citizens are being prohibited from defending themselves. The politicians deny ill intention, but pause for a moment and consider the consequences of their behavior. It doesn’t take a Berkeley educated genius to figure out they are condoning crime.

    How’d all of this happen? Simple: years, nay, decades of liberal democrat politicians have over time legislated or litigated law enforcement and corrections efforts to institute their “progressive” ideals of politically correct, utopian societal engineering.

    How do we fix this mess? After decades of promises from the left to fix society if you will surrender personal freedoms and responsibility, and only give them power, all will be fine. How’s that working out so far? Yes this can be fixed. Don’t fall for the lies from nirvana, and support and vote for conservative, honest citizens. Not career politicos who only want power and personal enrichment. What have you got to lose? I ask again, how’s leftist socialism working for us so far? They can only build their utopian world by first breaking down our civil society.

    15 years ago, we tried to teach a basic hand gun class for the Temple. First we met with great resistance, gradually they agreed. I’m an NRA R,P&S inst., the others all long time shooters. I wonder if they still consider us pariahs, and perhaps wish they’d been more attentive. Given Our past, why?

      ALAN, why are most JEWS anti gun, you would think that the Holocaust would have woke them up but probably like most they forget history. G-D bless the JPFO & I’m a Catholic

    I BLAME the citizens of America for what’s going on. Before the election in NYS, I as a long time member asked SCOPE & the NYSRPA (pro-gun groups) to ask for donations to put up billboards telling the NYS citizens to Vote their RIGHTS, not their Political Party. I promised I would donate at least $1000 myself. They REFUSED,said the billboards were TOO expensive & guess what, ANTI secondment CUOMO got re-elected. My daily paper will never print most of the letters I send as they too are Far Left Liberals& deny me my First Amendment Rights.Even with the Holocaust most Jews are anti-gun, so what’s a guy to do ???
