Anyone who thinks all cops are anti-gun needs to talk to real street cops. One such voice is one of my favorite blogs, Second City Cop out of Chicago. In the excerpt below, they expose yet another example of the “guns for we, but not for thee” of those of the gun prohibitionists:
Get a load of this ignoramus:
“A gun control activist in Chicago got a gun and justified it by saying her community is too dangerous to live in without one.
The activist–Camiella Williams–got a concealed carry permit too.
According to NPR, Williams grew up living on Chicago’s South Side and was personally impacted by violence at age nine, when she was hit in the head with a brick. She became involved in gang activity, acquired a gun at age 12, and lived violently until she had a son at age 18. At that point she decided to make a change; she moved away from the South Side, got a GED and a college education, and began lobbying the state for Illinois for more gun control.
She also traveled to Washington DC to press members of Congress to pass more gun laws.
And Williams continues to lobby, yet NPR’s Chip Mitchell reports that Williams has two thing most people would not expect a gun control proponent to possess–a gun and a concealed carry permit. Moreover, Williams makes clear she is ready to use her gun if she has too.”
She said, “I mean I just know that I would probably retaliate.”
“Retaliate.” There’s a problem waiting to happen. The purpose of Concealed Carry is self-defense, not “retaliation.” In fact, “retaliation” is a huge no-no in Concealed Carry classes – the threat ends, so does the justification for using the gun. In other words:
- Self defense = defense of self
Someone might want to head this one off before it becomes fodder for her fellow travelers.
