Rioting and the 2nd amendment

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

It is time to draw some conclusions about the last seven days of uncontrolled rioting in major cities throughout the United States of America. There are many, but this article focuses on one that every American should draw.

The left is waging a war against citizens of the United States and the governors, the mayors, and the police are not protecting the citizens of their cities. At the point where the government is not defending the citizen, the second amendment and the need for citizens to arm themselves with guns becomes priority number one, because this violence disguised as protest is really a war against law-abiding citizens.

The left’s argument against owning guns, especially AR-15s falls flat in this time of crisis. They say that citizens don’t need “weapons of war” because the police will protect them.

Well, over the past seven days, we have seen thousands of businesses looted and many people injured or killed by these rioters, and the police did not stop them. People’s lives were in danger in the face of vicious rioters, without a policeman in sight to protect them.

For example:

A Rochester business owner,  armed with nothing, was viciously beaten by large male rioters.

This man, we now know, wasn’t a business owner, but he was in the business district in Dallas to help protect businesses.  After rioters threw rocks and bricks at him, he fought back with his sword, but it wasn’t enough. The rioters mobbed him, beat him bloody with a skateboard, and left him lying twisted in an unnatural posture on the ground. He survived the attack, but he could have easily been killed.

In another instance in Dallas, this man was unarmed when the rioters attacked him.

 

Business owners with AR-15s, shotguns, and handguns

On the bright side, if there can be a bright side in these dark times, there are stories of business owners protecting their businesses with guns, the great equalizers, which turn out a lot better for the businesses and owners, as even the rioters make the better choice to move on.

The armed business owner does the rioters a favor by changing their minds about committing crimes.

These armed business owners in St. Paul, MN stood outside their businesses advertising their ability to defend their stores.

Rioting and looting is widespread in Los Angeles, but these business owners had their shotguns ready for any trouble.

When looters were confronted by the owners of a cigar shop, armed with guns and big voices, they hustled right out and went on their way.

In another instance in Los Angeles, armed business owners, while trying to get the attention of the police, were able to dissuade looters. Sadly, when the police finally arrived, the defenders were handcuffed.

The importance of the 2nd amendment

Gun sales were already rising during the coronavirus pandemic, and these latest riots will only raise sales to new heights. Reasons for the 2nd amendment can’t be plainer than during these dual catastrophes.

Any person that can put two and two together realizes that their lives depend on themselves, not the police or the National Guard. This is not a Hollywood production, where law enforcement arrives just in time to save the citizen. Rather, your life and livelihood may depend on your having a gun and knowing how to use it.

  1. THANKS TO MR. TRUMP IT DIDN’T GET ANY WORSE I WOULD THINK THAT NANCY., AND SCHUMER SCHIFF NADLER ETC WOULD HAVE GONE TO THESE CITIES AND TRIED TO PLEAD FOR PEACE. LIKE THAT WOULD HAPPEN.

  2. I am all for 2nd amendment… I think ALL BUSINESS OWNERS should have a weapon and know how to use it… I also think the police need to BACK OFF on people who defend with their weapons… You do what it takes to defend your property and your family.. If they don’t back-off with a weapon pointed at them
    with a warning… Then pop it to them… LESSONS NEED TO BE LEARNED !!!

    1. Totally agreed Dorothy! If I had a business, I would be right there with my .270 rifle & my .45 handgun locked & loaded!

    2. I’m for the 2nd Amendment, too. But I have another powerful weapon instead of gun. Praying every days: Four Mysteries of the Holy Rosary, Sprinkling The Holy Water, and wearing the Crucifix. 🙏

  3. Good point. These violent rioters are NOT representing any legitimate reason to attack innocent people, destroy stores, homes or even attack the police. No justification at all. Just greed and evil intentions. Do guarding your LIFE and property with legally owned firearms is necessary since the Hollywood actors will not save anyone. Tv cops are a joke. So are TV firefighters!

  4. Stupid DemoRats in California Arrest the Business owners and in New York the theives are turned loose with their no Bail rules. What a horible life for us if more DemoRats get into office

    1. The one way to fix this is to vote gop and have your guns close. Busines owners should be able to protect their property from thugs.

  5. These RIOTS have left a scar on every city that they Rioted in plus on the COUNTRY!!!
    AND another thing, saying that they sprayed tear gas on the crowd just before the President walked through to the Church that had been damaged in the Rioting, is total BULL 💩💩. I’ve been in a store where they used it, and nobody in the store could breathe, SO UNLESS Trump had a gas mask, there is NO WAY this is the truth!!!!!!!!

  6. 2 wrongs don’t make a right….the looters, the antifa (terrorists) and others who intend to do harm to businesses, monuments, individuals, etc. are laughable, because they are just as criminal as those they protest about. I say use what ever military force we have to protect our citizens, or soon the average citizen & business owners will need to get their arms together and take things into their own hands to defend themselves.

  7. You are absolutely correct! If these people are confronted they back down they are cowards who prey on those who can’t or aren’t allowed to defend themselves! My family have cops in it and many have owned weapons for as long as I can remember! My husband buys guns goes to gun range to shoot has trained both daughters and recently with the tone in this country I started to go as well! This past weekend I felt threatened and my husband said if they come they will be met with bullets! It’s the only way to feel safe because you can’t ever count on anybody but yourself to defend you or your property!

  8. In many cases, as I was taught in the Military Police School in Fort Gordon, Georgia, if you are shooting at the enemy, shoot to kill.. If shooting at civilian’s during riots or robberies, shoot to take them down.. What’s going on in America today is a war that can not be won by the looters, arsonist, bombers and murderers.. So to me, it is a shoot to kill, to bring peace back to America.. It does not matter of the color of their skin, only of their actions..

  9. The Police are handcuffed if they stop someone and they resist if they do anything they are tried in court and are fired I don’t see anybody protesting when a Police Officer is killed in the line of duty these people looting and robbing need to be shot

    1. Exactly! And the instigators (the planners) are Soros, and the Clinton/Obuma Cartel and sitting back and just laughing and waiting so they can continue to destroy our Country with the brainwashed liberals they have paid or said go loot, go burn buildings because nothing will happen to you, we can protect you. It is disgusting and needs to stop and we need to do our part by stopping these selfish, greedy dems in their tracks.

  10. It’s one of the worst disgraceful acts that’s ever been committed by the Democrats and they seem to be very proud of their actions. Can you even imagine If the roles were reversed and a Republican candidate running for President of the USA was bragging about collecting money to use as bail for the criminals who destroyed innocent business owners property and also killed people who were black and white and Asian who were just trying to protect property that others worked for their whole lives ? Joe Biden was proud to announce he helped the criminals! Almost every Democrat Governor also felt sorry for the rioting criminals and no empathy for the innocent victims. This has not been about an innocent man losing his life, this whole mess along with the Virus has been a political stunt to destroy our country and President Trump, who has given up his private life to help Americans! Hate is destroying this country and it’s not hate amongst the people, it’s hate created by the party who is not helping the Innocent People but financially helping the rioting criminals and are very proud they are helping the wrong people! If they think the People are dumb enough not to see what they have done to this country, they are mistaken! The People are not angry; they are sad to know fellow Americans have such little pride and love for this country to aid in the destruction of such a strong, Prosperous, beautiful country! God Bless the USA and keep us safe!

  11. I totally agree Anonymous! Approx. 1-200 protesters came to our town in N. Idaho ready to riot & fortunately they were met by All our law enforcement PLUS Several Hundred ARMED citizens all banned together with AR-15’s, AK-47’s, ETC. Etc, Well guess what? When they saw so many Armed people downtown to protect the businesses, etc., They made a Bee Line Back to Spokane. We are Legal Carry state & they found out REAL quick that they don’t mess with Idaho!!! No rocks or bricks thrown, No broken windows, nobody hurt! Once again, The Power of The 2nd Amendment!!!!!

  12. This whole situation is very disgraceful. Everyone needs to realize that this is exactly what the Leftist want. They have been working on the scheme for many years of taking control of our government AND country. They got a big slap in the face when their dishonesty of getting Hillary in office failed AND Donald Trump was legally elected. So they have resorted to using the Virus and now the murder of Mr. Floyd as a an excuse to push their agenda even further. By hiring Antifa to come in to major cities to riot & loot they have created the chaos they wanted. Business owners, and anyone that has their life threatened, has the right to defend themselves. The absolute biggest instigator of it all is Pelosi. She [ & many others] is so totally overcome with hate for Trump that they can’t even focus on what is best for this country. I have NEVER seen anyone so overcome with hate & anger the way the Leftist are. This type of hate only comes from Satan! I pray that everyone opens their eyes to what the Democrats are AND what they are doing by trying to destroy this country. I helped vote Trump into office, I stand with him, AND I WILL vote for him again. He’s not perfect, none of us are, but he’s the BEST we have had in many years. Everyone needs to remember that he was not a politician, therefore he does not speak with a forked tongue the way most politicians do. He is a Patriot & speaks as a common man. I find it very refreshing! So I am praying for the Democrats to be stopped with their destructive agenda. I pray we have a HUGE Republican victory on Election Day AND we have Trump in office for a second term. God help us all if the LEFTIST take over our country and our society !! May God Almighty continue to bless America!!!

  13. These people do not know the difference between a riot and a protest. The man did not deserve to be murdered no matter what kind of a person he was and he was not an angel . His criminal record is quite impressive, but he did not deserve to die like he did. I would like for someone to explain what they think white privilege is because I do not know. No one have ever given me anything. Competition for jobs or acceptance into higher education was and has never been easy. However, there is a lot of evidence that the rioters have been paid to do what they have done.. at least the leaders have been paid

  14. I can’t believe what is happening in the United State of America. The racism is not on the white side, Is on the black side they want to take over they want to be number one for whatever reason they have their mentality that everyone that is not black owe something to them, therefore if you’re not black get on your knees and apologize for being white. Being black, white, brown, yellow, red or purple is not a privilege is who you are and be proud of it. (No offense intended to those who are not involved in this racism games ) the right is right and wrong is wrong therefore it has to be Punished.

  15. I THINK ALL OF AMERICA SUPPORTED PEACEFUL PROTESTS ON THE FLOYD MURDER. HOWEVER, THE RIOTS ARE A DIFFERENT STORY. PEACEFUL PROTESTS BULL. EVERYONE LOOTER, THUG, FELON, AND ARSONIST FROM MILES AROUND SHOWED UP. THEY RUINED MANY FAMILIES LIVES AND LIVELIHOOD. THEY KILLED MANY MORE BLACK AND WHITE PEOPLE THAT FAKE MSM WON’T SHOW YOU. THIS IS NOTHING BUT ANARCHY AND SHOULD BE STOPPED BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY LIKE IT ALWAYS WAS IN THE PAST. THERE IS NO JUSTICE, THE CONSTITUTION IS BEING TRAMPLED AND THE THUGS HAVE MORE RIGHTS THAN THE CITIZENS JUST LIKE ILLEGAL ALIENS……BULLPOOH!!

  16. These are terrorist. Paid terrorist. Stop being nice and start treating them like you would ISIS or Islamic terrorist. Take them out and if these liberal mayors, governors, MSM or congressional members get in the way they can just become one more stat to add to the thugs. Law abiding citizens should not have to put up with these violent thugs. Time to take out the trash.

  17. Remember the 2nd amendment to our Constitution for it is there to protect all the rest of our freedoms !!!
