I recently viewed a TV news program, emanating from the Chicago area, purporting to provide home-owners with sound advice with regard to home-invasions by VCAs.
The “expert” they consulted mouthed perfectly the party-line. The “principles” promoted by these nanny-state Liberals never change:
1. You’re too stupid to own a gun! Daring, initiative, and courage and have no place in your pathetic life. You’re just a helpless pawn, unable to do anything for yourself. Get used to it!
2. Violent criminals are absolutely invincible! They cannot be vanquished. Resistance, in any form, is thus futile. “Fighting back is the worst thing you can do.”
3. Your only viable option is to hide in a blind place, like a closet, where you can observe nothing, call 911, and wait helplessly for police to arrive.
4. When you are discovered, give VCAs whatever they want. When they “want” to murder you, I guess you’re supposed to resist the temptation to do anything in your own defense. That, of course, would be “vigilantism” and “taking the law into your own hands.” Unthinkable!
In short, only criminals and police are authorized to use force in any form. When you don’t fall into either category, you have no legitimate option but to submit hopelessly to criminal violence.
It makes me sick to think the descendants of pioneers, frontier fighters, and cowboys would ever take this ridiculous “advice” seriously!
Fighting, courageously resisting evil with righteous force, is what our Nation is all about!
Programs promoting the foregoing should be laughed off the air!
