An octogenarian took positive steps to protect himself and his wife from a violent home invader. He did what was necessary to protect his life and the life of his loved ones by shooting an armed thug who broke into his home. The Army veteran had been robbed previously, and the piece of shit that broke into his home had a history of drug and weapons convictions. Oh… and he shot first.
Unfortunately, this incident happened in Chicago, where the only people who can use a gun are police, security shitbags who protect Dick Daley at taxpayer expense, even as he works to disarm the very people who pay to protect his worthless hide, and criminal thugs.
Would Obama have prosecuted this hero for taking a piece of festering shit off the streets for good – something that police haven’t been able to do?
“As an Illinois State Senator, Barack Obama voted not once, but twice in opposition to Senate Bill 2165,” recalled Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
The so-called “Hale DeMar Act” – named for a Wilmette, IL resident who shot a burglar with a handgun, a violation of Wilmette’s handgun ban- was passed in March 2004 on a 38-20 vote. Obama was one of the senators voting against the measure. After disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich vetoed the bill, the Senate voted to override the veto on Nov. 9 by a vote of 40-18. Again, Obama was one of the opponents.
It always appalls me to see politicians who take their own safety for granted because the very people who put them in office fund their ARMED security work to unilaterally make those same people vulnerable to armed thugs! They live at taxpayer expense, sucking on the public trough for decades, they have armed security, live in gated communities and never worry about the security of their loved ones. Their safety is funded by the very same people whom they try to disarm!
And if one of those people dares defend their lives and their loved ones despite the politicians’ best efforts, they’re prosecuted! They waste countless resources and nerves defending themselves against assaults on their very lives! First, by the armed street thugs, and then by the self-righteous, power-hungry politician thugs?
This is justice?
By what standard?
