(Bugout.news) When it comes to crime, punishment and guns, Left-wing politicians are an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, surrounded by hypocrisy. They generally oppose Americans’ right to keep and bear arms for self-defense, while also opposing the death penalty – yet their anti-gun policies are essentially death sentences for tens of millions of Americans.
The fact is, if you live in a city or state that has very restrictive gun control laws, your chances of survival drop to nearly zero in a SHTF scenario. And you can thank our political “leaders” for that.
You can bet that they will be protected – by police, by the military, by security teams – for at least as long as it takes to usher them to safety. As for the rest of us, we will be on our own from the outset of the collapse of the civil society.
The worst states to be in right now in terms of gun control are most definitely along both coastlines of the U.S. For some reason a majority of voters in those states prefer to outsource their personal security by electing candidates who seek to deprive them of a key constitutional right. That’s a lot of trust to have in someone, especially when your life is at stake.
And it’s misplaced trust. As we have seen time and again in various situations where society has broken down – either due to natural disaster or politically-motivated rioting – when seconds count the overwhelmed police are hours away. Troops usually take a day or more to deploy.
Plus, in a situation short of world war, where city after city is being consumed by violence, looting and chaos, you can bet that as many as half of all police forces and National Guard members will refuse to report for duty, opting instead to remain behind to take care of their own families. Those who do show up will be quickly overwhelmed and may opt to fall back into a defensive position.
That means the law of the jungle will prevail: Kill or be killed. And those most able to defend themselves – with firearms – will have the best chance. That’s just the way it is.
Even now in heavily gun-regulated cities and states, the criminal element is often better-armed than police. Criminals and thugs are definitely better armed than law-abiding citizens who obey without question gun control restrictions.
The best thing for you to do – right now, before stuff happens – is to find someplace where you can exercise your right to defend your life, liberty and property if need be. That may require pulling up stakes and leaving a place where you’ve lived your whole life. As difficult as that will be, in the end it’ll be worth it. Your security and safety in times of turmoil should not be left to others to provide, especially when they will be looking out from themselves first and foremost.
Gun controllers may think they’re doing you a favor because they have deluded themselves into thinking anti-gun policies ‘make the public safer,’ but they don’t. All they do make it easier for the bad people to make a victim out of you and your loved ones.
Left-wing anti-gun politicians may say they oppose the death penalty, but they sure don’t mind imposing one on you if it fits their political agenda. Don’t let them impose one on you.
