When the going gets tough, residents in New Jersey and New York have found government isn’t there to protect them from violent intruders, looters, rapists and burglars.
What do they turn to?
GUN OWNER NEIGHBORS.
How about that?
All the sudden, in these anti-gun urban areas, it’s the gun owners who are suddenly everyone’s best friend.
And those without guns?
They are seeking their own or favor from neighboring gun owners.
“Keep an eye on my place,” homeowners without guns say to their neighbor with his shotgun or rifle.
“Got one of those I can borrow?” another non-gun owner asks his neighbor.
These non-gun owners are the sort of people who vote for politicians like Mayor “Nanny State” Bloomberg, Governor Andrew Cuomo, or Governor Chris Christie who would take away all of their guns or who would make lawful gun ownership an arduous, expensive proposition at every turn.
These same voters vote for state and local officials with a similar anti-self-defense, anti-gun viewpoint.
You would think, for the folks whose family tree branches, they would support those politicians who would support and defend their right to defend themselves.
There are now more and more stories hitting the mainstream media about the pervasive looting still taking place almost a week and a half after the super storm hit.
The anecdotal reports we’ve heard have said that looting and violence is *much* worse than is being reported by the media, as is the difficult living conditions for residents in the hardest hit areas.
Government “help” has been slow and spotty helping those who need it.
And criminals have been right there to take advantage of this.
We found this story particularly interesting:
Homeowners Issue Warnings To Looters Following Superstorm Sandy
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In the wake of superstorm Sandy, reports of lootings across the Tri-State have been widespread.
Areas hit especially hard by Sandy continue to deal with dealing with lawlessness.
Rockaways residents told 1010 WINS reporter Gary Baumgarten that looting and thievery have become such serious threats that taking up arms and fleeing town are the best options for staying safe.
“If you got bags coming in and they see that they can rob you,” said Thomas, who plans on taking a bus out of the Rockaways.
