Fighting Crime with a Vodka Bottle in Place of a Gun

This is the point that Bloomberg, Feinstein, et al never see. When booze was outlawed, the crooks(and a lot of "honest" people) made or imported their own. Historians who write about criminals were given the mother lode. What IS it about Liberals??? They can't REALLY believe that a gun ban means no one will have a gun. It can only be a part of a long-term plan.

It's typical of them, just because they "feel" it or have passed a law about it, they believe they have taken care of it. They are mentally lacking in the ability to connect reality with "dreams". They live in a dream world and do not care to even question it. Liberalism is a mental disorder, pure and simple. They are delusionary.

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.   

But...

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
