Obviously this is a thug's wet dream and the predicted results have occurred over the last few weeks.
CHARLESTON (JG-TC) -- A robbery was reported at the basketball courts near the W lot on the Eastern Illinois University campus at 3:58 p.m. Sunday, making it the fourth robbery reported since Sept. 13 in Charleston.In the comments, someone suggested campus carry. The response is again typical of a hysterical anti.
Three of the robberies have been reported on campus and one in the city. No arrests have been related to any of the crimes, according to law enforcement authorities.
Great idea. We can have armed robberies instead. Maybe even some shootouts on campus. How about requiring all students and faculty to carry M-16s as a deterrent? While the increase of guns ALWAYS results in higher deaths by guns, we will all feel safer knowing that the gun industry will have higher profits just like the 2nd amendment intended.So allowing legally vetted adults over the age of 21 is upgrading to armed robberies and everyone being issued 'M-16's" followed by the typical 'gun industry' talking points.
I guess ignorance is his shield.
Well at least some of the thugs have been caught.
CHARLESTON (JG-TC) -- The Police Department has arrested six Charleston juveniles in regard to the strong-arm robberies that have taken place between Aug. 16 and Sept. 20, according to a media statement.So a mob of them assault unarmed college students and they were already illegally armed. Who wants to wager that these wonderful children were all honor students out getting milk for their grandma while on their way to choir practice?
“The investigation led to charges of residential burglary, battery and weapons offenses from multiple incidents on multiple locations and dates,” according to a CPD press release.
According to the anti-gun/criminal empowerment zone mindset, it's fine to let criminals run around until their caught and actually punished under our increasingly failing 'justice' system but honest citizens are not allowed to protect themselves because to do so would somehow cause the criminals to get worse.
That makes sense.
