Two Rivers, Wisconsin. The library here has a sign that states “No Concealed Weapons” … So I inquired “Does that mean we can be here openly armed?” … Answer: “No Weapons” … “You can take it up with the police” I responded “I don’t take anything up with the police and you should change your sign”
Meanwhile there was a carnival outside full of kids. The first thing I thought was that if a guman came here and started shooting, I might be the only one armed, and if I protected the people I would be the one to get in trouble. Why? Because the gunman would be a government hired hitman!
I could never have made the library supervisor understand that. This is the problem people are blinded from …
If the police weren’t such tyrant bullies there wouldn’t be so many incidents that they get themselves killed. Chances are the people acting against the police have sufficient cause or are defending themselves.
Lets face it. 90% of what the police do is harrassment and charging people with stupid things to make money. Basically being dictator’s puppets.
The police forces are the only ones who show up at protests ready for a riot, then they do something to make sure there is a riot. Thats their job.
Law enforcement is what keeps crime on the streets and causes unsafe living environmemts. We ought be policing ourselves under moral, biblical based ideals.
Police are involved in most criminal activity. They are not undercover cops, they’re undercover criminals, drug dealers, etc.
Police work for criminal organizations run and controlled by government sedts, Mafia. Freemasons and so on.
Their jobs are to show up in numbers and create trouble. Face it people, they are not our friends!
I wrote this letter to the local police station …
First, I am a minister and do not appreciate having a scene of police around my house. I have a clean record and so on …
I Just had a local cop bring 2 extra back up along to our house after returning our dog because I was armed … over our dog getting loose. There is no reason too give us a warning and wait for another opportunity to force money from us.
They were trying to set me up and trap me into making trouble. I know full well that’s how police are trained, to intimidate and make someone nervous so they will react. I was not going to give them that satisfaction and walked off to let my wife deal with it.
I go everywhere with my side arm, its an open carry state. Most everyone praises me for it and tells me they feel more comfortable and safe because someone is armed. I meet many others who usually conceal carry. I also have a permit for that.
These tyrant enforcers come by with 3 cops because they see me armed over a loose dog. Other neighbors have helped us with the dog and nobody else has ever complained about it or gave us some ridiculous tyrannical warning over it. They certainly are not bothered by my firearm. I specifically pointed out that I am armed because I live so close to a police station. in most places I’ve lived, police are the most dangerous people on the streets and deep in most of the crimes.
At least these guys respected my wish for them to stay on the sidewalk and deal with my wife. Your badges do not make you any better than anyone else. 3 cops over a loose dog is an embarrassment and public harassment. My side arm was just an excuse for causing trouble. They must talk to hundreds of people who are armed and they don’t even realize it.
He could have simply returned our dog and moved on. I said thank you. There was no further business necessary.
Then suddenly we are trapped in our house like criminals after he demands we don’t go anywhere while they sit outside and write up a statement.
What if several armed people went to that cops house because they know he has a firearm? How would that go over? We did nothing to warrant or deserve that kind of attention, and as a minister I am not going to file any formal complaints. I chose not to even get his badge number.
Better than that I am going to forgive and pray …
“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
1 Corinthians 16:13
A Christian is always in danger and therefore should always be on the watch. He should be fixed in the faith of the gospel and never desert or give it up. By this faith alone he will be able to keep his ground in an hour of temptation.
Watch ye – You have many enemies; be continually on your guard; be always circumspect:
1. Watch against evil;
2. Watch for opportunities to receive good;
3. Watch for opportunities to do good;
4. Watch over each other in love, protect one another.
5. Watch, that none may draw you aside from the belief and unity of the Gospel.
Stand fast in the faith. Hold fast to that which you have received as the truth of God; for it is the Gospel by which you are saved. 1 Corinthians 15:1-2.
Be not like children tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine; let your understanding receive the truth; let your judgment determine on the absolute necessity of retaining it; and give up life rather than give up the testimony of God.
Be strong. Put forth all the vigor and energy which God has given you in maintaining and propagating the truth, and your spiritual strength will increase by usage.
The terms in this verse are all in reference to being both spiritually vigilant and on guard for ourselves and loved ones. Not allowing government or the law of man to dictate our lives or regulate us with religion. As was done in Nehemiah 4 and is mentioned by Jesus himself in Luke 11:21-22, Matthew 24:43 …
We have lost this discernment.
Watch ye, watch, and be continually on your guard, lest you be surprised by your enemies; keep your scouts out, and all your sentinels at their posts, lest your enemies steal a march upon you.
See that the place you are in be properly defended; and that each be alert to perform his duty.
