Apologists for the police state say we needed all those combat troops – er, excuse me, policemen – because there was a terrorist on the loose. It was necessary to violate the Fourth Amendment and search all those homes without court-issued search warrants.
But imagine if half the people in the neighborhood pictured below owned an AR-15 or some other suitable firearm. Militarized cops going house-to-house would not have been necessary. No self-respecting terrorist would force his way into a house where the owner has a firearm and is trained in its proper use. If he had, we wouldn’t have had to put up with so many hours of hysterical drama on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc.
But then this is Watertown, a suburb of Boston, in the liberal state of Massachusetts. Liberals fear and hate guns. Because of this they have to put up with cops pointing automatic weapons at them and screaming for them to put up their hands. They are as defenseless as a herd of sheep.
Liberalism is like some kind of disease. It may be fatal.
