    Everybody thinks that. But life isn't like that.

    So if you live in an urban area and you have a gun the police can come after you? Is thinking otherwise stupid?

    You might want to visit the Progressive policies of all our major cities where most of the shootings occur. Some ban guns others make it damn near impossible to own one for their own protection but criminals don't seem to have a problem finding one.

    That's nice. But if it's all the fault of the left, why isn't the right wing standing up for their rights?

    If everyone is armed, how does that make for fewer shootings? How do you know which are criminals if they're not comitting a crime?

    Do you think they just shoot you for jaywalking? Minding your own business?

    Frankly, the numbe surprises me not at all.

    Look, if you don't want to get shot by the police then don't break the law or if they pull you over to question you even by mistake - do everything they say.
    You follow these two guidelines and I GUARANTEE you that a cop will not shoot you.
    Problem is as clearly demonstrated in the case where the Officer shot the man repeatedly in the back.
    As a senior Police Officer stated, the Officer had all the information needed to make an arrest later. Address, ID the whole picture. No need to pursue, none.
    He then stated that many of today's newer Officer take it farther than needed such as in cases of pursuit.

    I wouldn't live in such a neighborhood at all. Why don't they leave? There is no wall around the place.

    Who is making that argument? Oh, that's right. No one.

    You are. You said that the people the police were killing were armed and therefore the police were justified. Why shouldn't they be allowed to be armed?

    What part don't you understand that every major city in this country is a Democrat stronghold.

    Let's just take the month of May for example......
    In Baltimore, which was wracked by violence just one month ago after Freddie Gray, an African-American man, died while in police custody, 32 people were shot. Nine of them died. That brings to 35+ the shootings in Baltimore just in May and the month isn't over until midnight.

    In New York City, eight people were shot and killed.

    In Chicago, where murder has become common, 12+ people died and 44+ were wounded.

    Care to take a guess what these three cities have in common? They are all presided over by elected Democratic mayors and majority Democratic city councils. They all have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

    President Obama says he was elected to "end wars, not start them." While he is retreating overseas, he might consider trying to end the war in America's inner cities. And those inner-city voters might benefit from ending their loyalty to a party that has done them little good.

    And while we are at it, let's continue the charade to point to the racist, trigger happy cops that are "oppressing" the people. After all, that takes the heat off of the Progressives and their friggen failed policies.
