You Get What You Elect

I go to the Drudge Report every day to read articles and see what is going on around the Country.  Today a headline caught my attention and I went to CBS New York to read the article.  The headline read “Long Island Man Arrested for Defending Home With AK-47”. 

It seems Mr. George Grier had approximately 20 gang members on his property threatening him, so he shot four rounds into the ground to scare them away.  Mr. Grier got arrested.  I could write a blog about defending yourself or your property, or our right to bear arms, but I would like to explore the type of elected leadership you get in liberal states. 

You may not think local elections are important, but maybe you should go ask Mr. Grier.  I think the outcome of this situation would be considerably different if Mr. Grier lived in a “Red” state.  The local police would probably try to actually arrest the gang members, or maybe even police the neighborhood so that roving gangs wouldn’t harass citizens in their homes.

As I read the comments to the article, there was plenty of outrage.  Unfortunately, the location of the people making the comments was not listed.  I wonder if Mr. Grier’s New York neighbors feel this outrage.  Do his neighbors think it is just fine for families to be accosted on their property by gang members?  I’m sure the gang members are simply misunderstood.  They are probably in need of more government sponsored social services.

If there are any outraged New Yorkers, they have only themselves to blame.  If you elect liberals to office, you have to live with the laws they create.  Remember that in November.

Here’s the article:
