Bloomberg: Cops Should Go On Strike Until Americans Surrender Their Guns
July 25, 2012
New York’s gun-grabbing mayor Michael Bloomberg told Piers Morgan the other night that police around the country should go out on strike until the American people stop practicing their right to own firearms.
Actually, this is one of Bloomberg’s better ideas. Short of directing traffic and filling out paperwork at automobile accidents, the police serve little purpose. Police officialdom readily admits cops do not have an obligation to protect citizens. Citizens well armed and trained in firearm use are far better at protecting their families and property than the police.
Prior to the mid-1800s, Americans were expected to protect themselves and each other. The organized and bureaucratic gangs supported by the state we now call “police” would have been considered a standing army. “The notion of a police force in those days was abhorrent in England and America,” writes Peter Kasler.
