Over the weekend, hundreds of teens joined forces to harass, mug and beat peaceful residents of the disarmed city of Chicago.
Things got pretty bad and very quickly, with a lot of innocent shoppers and tourists caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation.
Now, imagine a situation where you’re taking a leisurely stroll through the city with your family when you’re approached by dozens of mob-crazed individuals who have no qualms about robbing you or hurting those you love.
Police are powerless, because they show up after the fact, and even if they do get there as the situation is developing, there are way too many mobsters for law enforcement to get a handle on the situation before someone gets hurt.
So, how do you stop them?
Realistically, there is only ONE solution, and it requires that you have on your person multiple high capacity magazines and a semi-automatic weapon capable of discharging a hail of bullets in rapid succession.
If there were ever a case for why high capacity magazines belong in the holster belt of every American, the events in Chicago over the last two days are it.
Only the individual citizen, in real-time, will have any chance of protecting themselves in an active mob scenario.
When the bodies start hitting the floor you better believe mob members will think twice about pursuing their new found strategy of attacking innocent people. Moreover, those who are likely being empowered by the success of such mobs to go out and do the same in their own cities will reconsider the risks versus reward.
Chicago is a gun-free zone. It is also the murder capital of the United States, with over 500 killed last year. With law abiding citizens having been disarmed, there is nothing to stop brazen attacks like what happened this weekend from continuing, and spreading.
Put the power back in the hands of Americans.
Let the people arm themselves – heavily.
