Listen to Democrats.
They say they want to defund the police. They mean it. They say they want to disarm the police. They mean it. They say they want to confiscate lawfully owned firearms. They mean it. As homicides spike in major U.S. cities, they also advocate for no-bail policies for hardened criminals.
They are encouraging the chaos.
On Saturday night in Los Angeles, two sheriff’s deputies were ambushed while sitting in their car in Compton, and shot in cold blood. Both are fighting for their lives today and there’s a $100,000 reward to find the shooter, who ran away. As both deputies were rushed to the hospital, angry black lives matter activists blocked the entryway to the hospital and chanted “we hope they die.”
Anti-police rhetoric seems to be at an all-time high throughout the country. Cities like New York, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, and Austin, Texas, to name a few, have all proposed defunding the police, and many have. As police departments get cut, officers within these cities are stepping back, while homicides surge. Many law-abiding citizens, concerned about the rioting and crime spike, are surging gun sales to historic levels.
Yet, Democrats – too fearful to confront black lives matter activists – have shifted the blame of societal unrest to law-enforcement officers and law-abiding citizens.
Today, Democratic Senator Ed Markey tweeted: “Portland police routinely attack peaceful protesters with brute force. We must disarm these officers, and every other police department in America, of weapons of war, and enact a nationwide ban on tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds.”
Yesterday, Joe Biden tweeted: “Weapons of war have no place in our communities. we need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”
This is essentially a gun confiscation plan on law-abiding individuals. No where in the tweet does Biden say he’s proposing a ban on new “assault weapons” sales, and no where in his tweet does he define what constitutes a “weapon of war.”
Biden has also named Beto O’Rourke, who has called for a mandatory gun buyback, to lead his gun-control push.
All of this at a time when Democrats are pushing no-bail policies, allowing criminals who have been arrested by law-enforcement to get out of jail for free.
According to Fox News:
Hundreds of looters and rioters arrested by the New York Police Department over the past several days have been immediately released due to the state’s new bail-reform law that some say is turning the criminal justice process into a mockery and threatening public safety.
New York City police chief Terrance Monahan said “just about all” of the looters arrested will be released without bail.
Frustrated law enforcement officials across the state say repeat offenders are getting bolder by the day and claim the state’s policy gives lawbreakers the green light to commit crimes without consequences.
Take Democrats at at their words and actions and think about what that means for the safety of our communities.
