JANUS Award of the Week

Total Hypcoprisy

Police Chief of Washington DC, the city where almost nobody can own or carry handgun, and even keeping a functional loaded weapon in your home is a crime, suggests citizens should get involved in their own mutual self-defense and “take down” active shooters if they can. You know, engage the bad guys with sustained and accurate gunfire until the cops show up. If the cops show up.

Hypocrisy by cops = hypcoprisy

In a surprising comment, [Washington DC] Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier is encouraging ordinary citizens to subdue or even kill active gunmen if they can as the “best option for saving lives before police can get there.”

During an interview Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Chief Lanier was asked what should people do if they are in the vicinity of an active shooter like the ones who terrorized Paris on Nov. 13.

“Your options are run, hide, or fight,” the D.C. police chief said. “If you’re in a position to try and take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there.”

The District for decades had outlawed handguns until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the ban in 2008. Since then, city leaders have enacted restrictive laws that are still being challenged in court by gun owners and pro-gun activists.

Chief Lanier, who has enthusiastically supported the city’s efforts to limit handgun ownership, admitted that her suggestion for the public in the midst of an active gunman does not reflect the longstanding advice offered by many police officials around the country.

Uh huh. So, for all those years when it was “To Serve And Protect” it was a) we aren’t legally required to do “protect” stuff you know, b) don’t do this yourself, “taking the law into your own hands”, and c) you aren’t allowed to own a gun, much less use one.

I see. And now, now that ISIS is popping up all over the world, now that the Agitator In Chief has us on the edge of a race based civil war, now that it’s open season on the police all over the country, NOW it’s “Shoot the bad guys first for us, protect us. PS - you still aren’t legally allowed to own, brandish, or use a loaded firearm.”

Guess they’re supposed to use blunt cutlery, finger guns, and precision-chewed PopTarts™.

Balderdash.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
