The right to bear arms is enshrined in our Constitution. Liberals treat it as a policy issue rather than a right and pass laws blocking individual right to self-defense. Freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is challenging DC gun laws that only allow unloaded guns in Congressional offices and none on the streets. We expect the DC government to take legal action. This may end in a Supreme Court challenge.
For years, liberals have told Americans they do not need guns because the police have guns. But now many leftists advocate defunding police altogether. This brings serious public policy questions. In Leftist Land, who exactly would have guns? And who is responsible for protecting Americans?
This is what you get with liberals in charge of cities. Law abiding business owners get detained or arrested for opening their businesses, not wearing masks, or protecting their businesses from looters, but criminals can get away with arson, looting, vandalism and wearing whatever they want. Is this America?
