Armed “Surge” Needed in Chicago
September 8th, 2008
History proves gun control does not work to stop violence.
Statistics prove gun control does not work to stop violence.
Common sense proves gun control does not work to stop violence.
Yet, we still have misguided, gun-grabbing politicians stripping law-abiding, responsible citizens of their constitutional right to carry a firearm for self defense. In doing so, these politicians shift the balance of power on the street into the hands of criminals who will never follow gun control laws and the result is ALWAYS a dramatic increase in violent crime.
The latest, greatest hero of gun control is Chicago’s Mayor Daley. Under his leadership he has championed every imaginable gun control scheme possible and now has the dubious distinction of creating a city that had almost TWICE the number of Americans killed by gunfire over the summer than Americans killed in Iraq during the same time! That’s right! 247 people shot resulting in 125 killed this summer in Chicago!
Read this news report by CBS News and then let me share my solution for the good, law-abiding and responsible people of Chicago. I’m going to help them out with an Armed “Surge” compliments of Front Sight’s Millionaire Patriot.
Here is the CBS Channel 2 News story…
The answer to curbing violent crime in ANY city is not banning guns or preventing law-abiding responsible citizens from having a concealed weapon permit. The answer is to first balance the power on the street by placing guns in the hands of law-abiding, responsible and TRAINED citizens. Society is safer when criminals do not know who is armed.
The more safe, responsible, law-abiding and trained citizens you place on the street carrying a concealed weapon, the more you shift the balance of power into the hands of the good guys.
After a few thugs are gunned downed by law-abiding citizens during convenience store robberies and home invasions, (as we have seen time and time again in those cities and states that have adopted Shall Issue Concealed Carry Laws) the word will get out on the street that Chicago is no longer a happy hunting ground for predators preying on defenseless men and women. Criminals will leave Chicago and look for easier victims in cities where politicians are still clinging to the false promises of gun control.
So here is how I will help Mayor Daley out for the mess he has created in Chicago:
Between now and the end of this year, I will pay the tuition for any law-abiding, responsible citizen of Chicago and its suburbs to attend a Four Day Defensive Handgun Course. You read this correctly. This is a $2,000 Four Day Defensive Handgun Course that I will pay for any law-abiding citizen of Chicago and its suburbs.
Tell Mayor Daley that help is on the way in the form of a Front Sight “Surge” of armed and trained Chicago citizens. After a Four Day Defensive Handgun Course, a citizen of Chicago will have skills in the use of a defensive handgun that exceed the law enforcement standards of the Chicago Police Department. This is no exaggeration. Just ask the law enforcement officers who travel across the country on their own dime to attend our courses.
If Mayor Daley has any common sense left in him and can study the statistics of other large cities that have adopted “shall issue” concealed carry laws, he should immediately begin allowing his citizens who have graduated from Front Sight to carry a concealed weapon in their normal daily activities. It is time to shift the balance of power on the streets of Chicago back into the hands of the law-abiding.
The Front Sight “Surge” will do the trick and I will put my money where my mouth is by paying the Four Day Defensive Handgun Course tuition for any law-abiding citizen of Chicago and its suburbs.
