OK, the level of….of….of….I’m trying to think of a nicer word, but I can’t. So here goes. The level of stupidity is going off the scale. The latest involves…you know…Washington D.C. and the U.S. Congress. This latest level of stupidity is being led by U.S. Representative William “Lacy” Clay of Missouri with help from U.S. Representative Ro Khanna of Cauliflower, excuse, California.
They are writing a bill to present to Congress called The PEACE Act. Sounds innocuous. Who wouldn’t want peace? Well, here’s the full title: Police Exercising Absolute Care with Everyone. It redefines when Federal Law Enforcement can use lethal force. It would also require states to comply with the same standards or lose federal funds.
Here is the bill in a nutshell: It would require law enforcement officers to ask a suspect NOT to kill them BEFORE they could use lethal force. It would require the following scenario: Law Enforcement Officer: “I see you with a lethal weapon, would you put in down and not use it to kill me?” OK, now the other side. Suspect: (The sound of his gun). Law Enforcement Officer is injured or dead. And the family will need to be notified. Here’s the link to the whole article: PEACE ACT
I live in a “Stand Your Ground” state, meaning I can defend my property, family, friends and self including but not limited to the use of deadly force. I would have more legal authority than my local law enforcement officers. More than my son who is a Deputy in the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department.
The sheer lunacy of this proposal shows how out of touch those in our nation’s capitol are with reality. I would like to ask you, my readers, to contact your U.S. Representative and ask them NOT to support this bill. You can find your Representative at this Website.
With proposed legislation like this, we are going to see that Darwin’s theory wasn’t about the past, but the future. This is leading to nothing but chaos and anarchy, where only the strongest which seems to be the criminal element, will survive. Let’s end the lunacy in D.C. and bring back common sense.
I’m just sayin….
