I’m so glad “defund the police” is working all over the country… shootings are up and no level of additional gun control will fix peoples willingness to perform evil tasks. You can pass 1,000 new gun controls laws, but no criminal who is willing to disrespect “Thou shalt not kill” is going to obey them. It just makes more things you can charge them with after someone has already been killed. It doesn’t save a single life.
Fund the police and treat them with the respect they deserve. They put themselves on the line with every call they go to. Let honest working people defend themselves until the police can get there, because as much as I respect LEO, they are NOT the first line of defense.
