Everywhere we look these days we hear about gun violence and how evil guns are. The public is being programmed and they don’t even know it. People are being programmed to fear guns and anyone who has one. The police are no different they are supposed to act legally and sensibly but the programming is even affecting their judgment. The gun grabbers are working overtime to take away our guns.
The gun grabbers have really gotten brave lately. Just recently a businessman, a Mr. Eric Lee was arrested on his own property for loitering and for gun position. If you can’t loiter on your own property or carry a gun on your own property then where can you? But it gets even worse, he had a concealed carry permit on him and he informed the officer of that fact but that had no bearing on the officer’s actions.
The police were called to Mr. Lee’s place of business because of a disturbance. When the officer arrived he asked if anyone had a firearm and being a responsible businessman, Mr. Eric Lee told the officer he had a weapon and informed him he also had a concealed carry permit. The office ignored everything the businessman told him. He immediately confiscated the gun, cuffed him and threw him in the back of his cruiser along with several homeless drunks that were on Mr. Lee’s property.
To top it off the officer had the property owner’s vehicle towed to an impound yard. If this isn’t the perfect example of living in a police state I don’t know what is. This officer stomped all over Mr. Lee’s rights. Property owners have the right to have weapons on their own property. Property owners have the right to hang around their own property. Property owners have the right to reasonable search and seizures. In this case everything was unreasonable. All Citizens have the right to carry firearms and those with gun permits should have twice the right to carry.
The amazing part of this entire story is that because the crime rate was so bad in the area, the local police had previously informed him and other business owners in the area to buy a firearm and to get a carry permit. The police instructed him to get the weapon to protect his business but when he did, without hesitation the police took his weapon and arrested him for having it.
I know not all policemen would do what this one did but it only takes a few bad apples to spoil the whole bunch. This policeman is so bad I can smell him on the other side of the Atlanta metro area. He should not be allowed to wear a badge anywhere, ever again.
This happened in the city of Decatur Ga. If you’re not familiar with the city it is basically part of Atlanta. Even though the two cities reside in two different counties they are almost in distinguishable from each other. Decatur is just a suburb of Atlanta and it butts right up to the Atlanta city limits. It is no surprise that Decatur Policemen would act like just like Atlanta City Policemen.
Mr. Lee had all the charges thrown out when he went to court and the judge even apologized to him but apologies don’t do anyone any good when crimes against our rights are being committed by the very people who are paid to protect them. Apologies don’t reimburse Mr. Lee for having his vehicle towed, nor do they give him his weapon back. He is in litigation with the city over this and I hope he gets the officer fired for his obvious disregard for Mr. Lee’s civil rights. I further hope he takes the city to the cleaners.
The police took his gun and now they can’t even tell him where to retrieve his gun. This makes me think of the Fast and Furious scandal but in reverse. In the Fast and Furious scandal the Federal government distributed guns to criminals, then lost track of the guns. In this case the local police confiscated a legal weapon and then lost track of the weapon. If they can’t keep track of weapons within their own position, how can we trust them with our safety once they take our weapons? Most “lost” weapons end up in the hands of criminals, so it appears that the government is one of the primary suppliers of weapons for criminals. Think about that when you contemplate giving away your gun rights.
But this article isn’t about government distribution, it is about how our guns rights are be eroded before our eyes. So let me get back to the subject of gun rights and how we are being manipulated by the media.
It is getting more and more common to hear stories similar to this one. Our guns rights are being attacked everywhere. There was even an Army Veteran who lives near Augusta Ga., who made the mistake of posting a copy of her concealed carry permit on Facebook. When she went to her child’s elementary school and she was informed by a police officer that she had to leave or she would be served a criminal trespass warning. The principle of the school knew she was ex-army and saw the weapons permit on line. The fact that the mother was ex-military and had a carry permit frightened the principle so much so that she got a “no trespass order” against the mother. That means she was no longer able to go to her child’s school, not even to pick the child up and take the child home. The mother ended up in enrolling her child in another school which was probably best for the child and her.
I guess from now on we all have to be “closet” guns owners so we don’t frighten the ignorant among us. You would think that a school principle would have more common sense that this. But apparently the principle has been properly programmed by the gun grabbers and now she is part of that elite group of people who hate and fear guns for what people can do with them.
Has our society deteriorated so much that pictures of legal documents scare us? Has it deteriorated so much that we are frightened of those who have served to protect us? Has it deteriorated so much that our right to bear arms is no longer valid? Has it deteriorated so much that we have become scared rabbits that are willing to to be herded and manipulated at the whim of government? Our society is deteriorating rapidly in so many ways that I can’t even count them all. Once it reaches bottom there will be a lot of people who will wish they had a weapon to defend themselves. Hopefully there will be a lot more thankful people who kept their guns. Which one will you be?
