U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- There is nothing quite like mob violence, the retreat of the police, riots, and the burning of public buildings and private property, to fuel gun sales. An American city abandoning a Police Station to the leftist mob and almost losing a second!
In just a few days, we will see the May figures for gun sales as told by the National Instant background Check System (NICS)
May of 2020 is going to be a very high sales month. The immediate future looks bad; the future of gun and ammunition sales however is quite certain.
It is completely understandable that a resident of Minneapolis, Detroit, Atlanta, Dallas, Memphis, or Louisville, along with a host of additional cities, would find themselves wishing they had purchased a pistol, rifle, shotgun, and/or ammunition, before the current crop of leftists thugs decided to burn down their once-beautiful city.
Those wishing they had armed themselves likely see there is still a chance… if they act now and act quickly.
If you are well armed and well prepared, do not blame those who saw the world in a different light until the recent riots convinced them otherwise.
Welcome them to your world. Offer them advice and training. Give them a wider perspective. If they are your neighbor, plant the seeds of a neighborhood looking out for each other and preventing violence.
Americans have spontaneously formed militias to maintain order and prevent looting, long before, and as long as, the United States has existed.
Some of that is currently happening in Minneapolis. From townhall.com:
“We heard that and figured ‘Well, we better get up and go see if these guys need help,'” the second man said, pointing to the smoke shop behind him. “It turns out these guys are out here with machetes and trying to keep looters out of their business because the cops can’t get out here. And so, I figured, before there were cops there were Americans. So here we are.”
Rioters tend to avoid armed defenders of buildings, businesses, and neighborhoods.
If you ever wondered why rioters stay in the inner cities, in spite of provocateurs pushing them to go to the suburbs, now you know.
American suburbs are well-armed. That is where many of American’s retired veterans and police officers live. For each of those, there are 20 other armed Americans, and likely a third of them have experience in hunting. A hunter is halfway to being a militiaman.
Men naturally form into groups to defend their homes and businesses. America has the seeds of necessary leadership and experience, to form and use rudimentary, spontaneous militias to protect their own.
The United States is the most armed population in the world, with about 450 million guns owned by a hundred million or more citizens and residents.
Those numbers are going to continue to rise. Much of the rest of the world looks on in awe and wishes they had the freedom to be armed, such as exists in the United States.
The subjects of Communist China, wish they had the option to be armed. The residents of Libya and Syria wished they had their own community militias. Some did. Many of those who did not have fled.
There is nowhere for Americans to flee. We have to stand and fight for the future of this nation. The most important fight, at the moment, is to reassert the rule of law, not just in the rioting cities, but in the capital.
Pray for President Trump to have wisdom and guidance from Divine Providence.
