Guns Are The Only Option When The Police Are Abolished

From The Washington Examiner:

“My whole adult life, opponents of private gun ownership have insisted that an individual right to keep and bear arms was outmoded because it is better to rely on the police,” Georgetown Law professor Randy Barnett recently remarked. “In multiple ways, in 2020 that argument has been completely demolished.”

Backlash In Seattle For Funding The Police

From Stop Defunding:

With over 100,000 signatures on our petition, the city council is panicking and has postponed the vote to defund the Seattle Police Department until Monday, August 10th.
On Monday August 3rd 2020, despite having no specific plan, the Seattle City Council will vote to defund the Seattle Police Department.  The defunding of the SPD would mean that up to 800 officers would be fired.  That’s over half of all sworn officers.  It would also mean immensely longer 911 response times and of course, higher crime rates.  Please sign our petition to stop the defunding of the Seattle Police Department and send a message to the city council that says “no” to the defunding the Seattle Police Department.

Until just a few months ago, gun control groups would likely have cheered the president’s decision. After all, more federal law enforcement resources means more opportunities to enforce federal gun laws. Since the start of the “defund police” movement, however, gun control advocates have found themselves in the increasingly awkward position of advocating for more gun laws to be put on the books, while downplaying the idea of actually enforcing them.
