The Seattle Police Department began informing small business owners in the city on Friday that the force will have little to no means to prevent crimes from vandals and rioters targeting their businesses, after the Seattle City Council passed an ordinance preventing the city police from using even less-lethal crowd control measures such as pepper spray to deter violent crowds.
Ordinance 119805 prevents the Seattle police from using common law enforcement tools such as pepper spray and tear gas.
The stark admission was made in a letter addressed to Seattle small businesses.
“Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.
For these reasons, Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend- as I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in a safe way.”
Downtown Seattle has suffered from a whopping 525% increase in crime since the start of the now-dismantled Capital Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) project, an anarchist commune in which several people were murdered by self-appointed security.
Consistent rioting and criminal activity continues to occur in the far-left city, with gangs of rioters not only pillaging businesses in the downtown area, but going so far as to attack police precincts themselves with projectiles.
The far left city appears destined for a fate of destruction, with a free pass generously provided to left wing criminals intent on devastating those around them in a hail of violence.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
