Senator Mike Lee (R.Utah) sets up website for people to recount their armed resistance to evil. Here’s one such tale that might resonate with Greenwich residents:
“Jim, from Louisiana, writes as follows,” Lee said in remarks Wednesday on the Senate floor, “‘I lived through the Los Angeles riots. My wife and I were living in Silver Lake. For five days we watched the orange glow of businesses being burned on two sides. For five days we never saw a law enforcement officer … We took shifts watching the street and who was coming and going. Our neighbors brought us coffee in the middle of the night, a night that was lit with the flames of burning buildings. Twice cars came up our street, saw us armed and turned around.’”
Gun opponents ridicule those who feel they need guns to resist a totalitarian government; how about a “Sandy” event, just a little larger? Or the shut down of our country’s electrical system for several months? If trouble arrives, would you rather stand guard at your driveway armed with a garden hose or a gun? Polls show that the majority of Connecticut residents prefer the garden hose defense strengthened, no doubt, with “Gun-Free Zone” signs in every neighborhood.
Better hope the bad guys can read.
