A police officer shot and killed an unarmed black man in Missouri and the riots started. Once the riots started the looting started. People who had nothing to do with the shooting became victims of those who fail to see the irony of protesting in support of someone who was wronged by wronging other people.
The left in America tells us that no one needs guns. Oh they claim that guns are OK for some things but that no one needs an assault weapon to hunt. They ignore the fact that the Second Amendment is not about hunting, it is about protection. That is protection from others and protection from our government.
Call the police the anti gun folks say. Well the rioters in Missouri overwhelmed the police and the community. There were two courses of action for those who were attacked by the rioters. Either become a victim or stand their ground.
A number of business owners decided to stand their ground as people with the dreaded AR 15 style “assault” rifles protected themselves and defended their property. Yes, the bad black rifle was used for protection.
You see, there is no such thing as an assault rifle. That is a name given by the anti gun crowd to cause fear but if they insist on calling it an assault rifle I will insist that the people in Missouri showed it was an effective deterrent if you are assaulted.
The rioters were causing problems but any business that had armed people standing watch did not have trouble. The criminals (and rioters and looters are criminals) did not want to risk getting shot so they moved on to unprotected targets.
Firearms are a way of life and are necessary for a free people. Those who are disarmed are slaves to the government and victims to the criminal element.
It is tragic that the young man lost his life. It is also tragic that people feel the only way to solve the issue is to riot. Keep in mind; cops shoot people of all colors all over the country. For some reason only certain communities resort to rioting.
In any event, this episode demonstrates one of the reasons we have a Second Amendment. Thank goodness well armed citizens were there to thwart the rioters.

Never surrender, never submit.
