KILLING OF WHITTIER COP PROVES FAILURE OF LIBERAL GUN CONTROL/CRIME POLICIES
February 21, 2017
Yesterday in Whittier California, a police officer was killed by a gang banger who just killed a relative hours earlier at his home after getting out of prison two weeks ago, according to reports.. The Officer killed was identified as Keith Boyer, a 27-year veteran of the department.
All the facts are not in yet. We don’t know what the gangbanger was in jail for just 2 weeks earlier. We don’t know his immigration status. We don’t know his criminal history.
The parolee gangbanger had a semiautomatic gun, stole a car, killed a relative hours earlier, then killed a police officer and injured his partner in the shootout. California’s toughest in the nation gun control laws and lax criminal justice system has just blown up in their faces. A parolee cannot legally possess a firearm, yet he had one. Conservatives have said for years, criminals will always figure out how to get guns. Gun control laws only affect the law abiding citizens who will be disarmed and at the mercy of criminals like this gangbanger. Recently in Arizona, an armed citizen saved a police officer’s life who was in a similar situation and was praised for his brave action.
Many people, myself included, left California to get away from these kinds of policies. We moved to states like Nevada and Texas which were more libertarian and freedom loving. But we have been sliding down the same liberal rabbit hole as California with our own explosion in murder and crime here in Clark County and now sanctuary city policies. Now liberals are trying to take away our guns here in Nevada promising us we will be safer.
This tragedy was predictable and should be a lesson for every state in the nation. Liberals have argued for reduced sentences for criminals, calling them victims of racial oppression, while claiming more gun control will make us all safer. Those were the claims from college professors and liberal reporters sitting safely in their offices out of harm’s way. History and the facts proved them wrong and now we have a real world tragedy playing out because of liberal failed policies. When will we learn? When will we finally reject the argument that if we just give up some of our freedoms to government we will be safer? The government could not even protect itself yesterday.
