When Will They Learn?
It's been a week since the tragic July 28 shooting
spree at a Seattle Jewish center which left one dead and several
injured ( http://tinyurl.com/emwer
). Undoubtedly, "gun control" advocates will start crawling
out of the woodwork in short order to use this atrocity to lobby
for yet more restrictions on firearms ownership. Sadly, many of
these advocates will be members of the Jewish community.
Only one person was armed during this shooting:
the shooter himself, who chose to ignore all of the laws he was
breaking. The law-abiding innocents in the center had no ability
to defend themselves.
"Call the police!" say the gun-prohibitionists.
"That's what they're there for!"
As we document in our book, _Dial 911 and Die_
), police in Washington state have NO duty to protect you. Don't
believe us? Here's an excerpt from the book:
Washington falls in the category of "die first,
sue later" jurisdictions. In that state, the police are not
immune from being sued. In fact, a Washington statute requires
that the sheriff and deputies "shall keep and preserve the
peace" and "arrest...all persons who break the peace,
or attempt to break it." Under that statute, however, government
owes the duty to provide police protection to the public at large,
not to individuals [Chambers Castanes, 669 P.2d at 457; Beal
v City of Seattle, 954 P.2d 234 (Wash. App. 1998)(en banc)(same
Washington courts have regularly interpreted the
law to allow injured citizens and the heirs of dead citizens to
sue police departments for the negligence of their officers. Under
Washington law, a private individual can sue the government for
failure to provide police protection if:
(1) there is some legal relationship or connection
between the police department and the victim which "sets
the victim apart from the general public," and
(2) there are "explicit assurances of protection"
that cause the victim to rely on those assurances.
If you have your copy of _Dial 911 and Die_
, this is the right time to dust it off and educate those naive
folks who think they have a right to police protection. _They
don't_. Don't have the book? It's just $11.95, an inexpensive
resource for your "truth arsenal." It is the best way
to end the stupidity of promoting "gun control."
As for the "Schumerite" Jewish leadership
(taken from Charles Schumer, a rabid anti-gun Jewish politician),
they should read our alert, "'Schumerite' Jews Have Blood
on Their Hands...Again" at www.jpfo.org/alert20060713.htm
. They share the blame in this shooting, having methodically disarmed
their fellow Jews and others, leaving them helpless.
Disarm yourself to protect yourself? These folks
must have bagels for brains.
