Mr. Smith is a lunatic...a "nut" if you will.
I e-mailed him basically asking him why he was specifically going after Kimber and not others ( I mentioned Glock, Sig and HK) that supplied police departments in "anti-states" (I mentioned NYPD).
I told him that I had been considering joining the JPFO until I read the piece he wrote and decided to boycott the JPFO instead of Kimber.
I'm sure you think you're cute, but you should reallocate some of
that effort into learning to read a little better. We were not
castigating Kimber for manufacturing firearms -- which may be bought and
used by "good guys" or bad -- but for glorifying California departments
dedicated, in part, to depriving Americans of their rights.
I have been a police officer, and I know what most policemen think
of the public that they are more inclined to herd than serve. The first
time I ever saw the epithet "*******" it was used by police officers in
a novel by Joseph Wambaugh (another former police officer) to indicate
civilians in general -- or, as many another cop has put it, "criminals
who haven't been caught yet".
Police today seem to be increasingly brutal. They beat up innocent
individuals. They raid the wrong addresses (when even raiding the right
address is a violation of the Constitution). They execute suspects on
the street by pumping dozens of bullets into them, In Philadelphia they
bomed and burned an entire neighborhood over a disturbance of the peace
Are these the ":good guys" you want us to respect more? And when
they come to your door to take away your guns -- and maybe you, as well
-- as they have in dozens of other cultures all around the world, will
you want us to keep respecting them?
Don't tell me you were "seriously considering joining the JPFO". Why
should I believe you? And why should I care if your prefer some comfy
fantasy you've got going in your head to the uncomfortable but
Turn over and go back to sleep.
