The FIRST responder
It’s almost closing time at the jewelry store/restaurant/convenience store. An armed criminal rushes in demanding money/herding customers or employees to the back/shooting. Who is the first responder?
Sure, someone calls 911. The police are on the way. EMS are on the way. But who is the FIRST responder to a violent crime when you are there?
Would you want the police to be armed when they show up? Would you want them to “outgun” the bad guy either with better arms or higher capacity magazines? Would you want them to shoot until the threat was neutralized? Of course you would. But they will be the SECOND responders. Who is the FIRST responder?
Shouldn’t you be armed? Shouldn’t you “outgun” the bad guy, either with better arms or a higher capacity magazine? Shouldn’t you shoot until the threat is neutralized? Of course you should.
YOU ARE THE FIRST RESPONDER IF THERE IS VIOLENCE WHERE YOU ARE!
YOU SHOULD BE ARMED TO THE TEETH, AND HAVE ENOUGH AMMUNITION TO KEEP SHOOTING – NOT UNTIL YOU THINK HE’S DEAD, BUT UNTIL HE THINKS HE’S DEAD!
The President of the United States of America, and many of the Democratic Party think you should be unarmed and helpless in the face of violence. They think that you should wait until the first responders can arrive. But, when violence occurs, YOU ARE THE FIRST RESPONDER!
And the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution OFFICIALLY recognizes that fact.
