Ferguson, Missouri has seen violence escalate dramatically last night as so-called “protesters” – in reality just troublemakers masquerading as social warriors – hurled Molotov cocktails at police, looting and burning additional businesses and generally acted like savage hooligans.
If Sunday night’s arrests were any indication, the majority of the most aggressive troublemakers have come from outside of Ferguson for the opportunity to loot and riot.
Regardless of their home addresses, the rioting masses of black hoodlums are scaring a lot of Joe and Jane Sixpacks of every skin color, pushing them towards gun ownership with greater effectiveness than a million pro-gun public service announcements.
Headlines like this one from the Gateway Pundit have got to further shake the confidence of folks who don’t have the means to protect themselves and their families until help can arrive:
Sometimes people need a “Come to Jesus” moment to realize that they need to be proactive in taking action to help make sure their families are safe and protected. In our society, people often take for granted the ability of police to maintain law and order. There’s also the misplaced belief that police have a duty to protect the innocent.
Cops can’t be everywhere and when seconds count, cops are minutes away.
Yes, police may be busy in the best of times and when there are times like present day St. Louis, police might not arrive until daybreak.
Once again, be careful if you need to be in St. Louis for business or pleasure in the coming days.
