The Left is upset with President Donald Trump because he is ending Barack Obama‘s ban on allowing police departments to purchase military-grade weapons from the Department of Defense. It’s almost as though if Obama issued a bad, injurious executive order, that each and all subsequent presidents must worship the edict and no one shall be permitted to rescind it.
The phony reason given by Obama to justify this failed decision to withhold weapons from police forces that must daily fight violent criminals, a decision that denied heavier firepower to local police forces across the country, was that the use of heavier weapons by the police might offend and be considered a threat to local residents. But what our lame-brained, radical, police-hating former president did not even consider is that the denial of heavier weapons might also get police officers killed by better-armed criminals.
But the idea that local residents would be offended by these weapons in the hands of police is just another in a series of Obama‘s bald-faced lies; the only people offended by the use of such weapons would be criminals who would no longer be able to out-shoot the police while defending the local residents who Obama claimed would be offended with their use. The local police forces already carry pistols and shotguns that can kill if discharged, so what is there to be offended about if the police also possess more deadly weapons needed to fight today’s better-armed criminals?
The truth of Obama’s issuing this idiotic order is that our former president was best pals with the Black Lives Matter terror group, who were party to the random assassination of police officers while he was in office, and he just bought their favor by limiting the killing ability of the withheld weapons compared to what potential criminals like themselves might carry.
For many years, America’s police forces have encountered criminals who have much more powerful weapons than the police forces have, and many police officers have lost their lives trying to combat a criminal force that had superior weapons. These new weapons will not only help police officers defend themselves but will also allow them to better protect the citizens they serve.
