D.C.’s Jackboots Try to Beat the Supreme Court to the Punch

Last week the Supreme Court of the United States began hearing arguments over the legality of a gun ban implemented by the city government in Washington D.C. The question of whether or not individual citizens owning guns is a Constitutionally guaranteed right or whether a city or state has the right to prevent citizens from owning firearms will be decided sometime this Summer. But the city government in D.C. isn’t going to wait around for the highest court of the land to decide if their actions are legal or not. City hall has directed the jackbooted police to fan out in an effort at mass confiscation before the SCOTUS even has a chance to issue a ruling.

TV 4 news of the D.C. area reports that D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier announced operation “safe homes” which would see police roaming from house to house intimidating the occupants therein to submit to a “voluntary” weapons search of the home. This crackdown is being launched in the Washington Highlands neighborhood of Southeast Washington. It is said the program will expand to other neighborhoods.

In fact, it doesn’t even matter if the guns were never used in any crimes. TV 4 reports that once a weapon is found it will be “tested” and will be “destroyed if they are not found to be linked to any other crimes.”

This move can be likened to a losing nation putting to death every POW in their possession as the enemy is entering the city gates. The D.C. government thugs are just trying to eliminate as many guns as possible before they are told that their actions are illegal and with the SCOTUS being reported as leaning against the city’s position, this is an obvious rearguard action made by people who know that their actions will soon be illegal.

The actions of the city and police of Washington D.C. are cynical and quite over the top and should be condemned in the strongest terms.
