The radical gun grabbers are so hell bent on disarming Americans that they’re resorting to a very dangerous tactic called ‘swatting’. The enemy in this case is the anti-gun person who falsely reports a legal open-carry permit holder to the police. It all goes down hill from there…arrest or even death could be the result of being falsely accused of a gun crime. Seems the enemy will do just about anything to take guns away from law-abiding Americans.
Second Amendment groups are accusing the gun control lobby of putting law-abiding owners of firearms in danger by urging people to call the police on anyone carrying a gun in public.
As more states relax rules about open-carrying of guns, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has taken to social media to urge the public to assume gun-toters are trouble, and to call the cops on anyone they feel may be a threat.
“If you see someone carrying a firearm in public—openly or concealed—and have ANY doubts about their intent, call 911 immediately and ask police to come to the scene,” the group wrote on its widely followed Facebook page. …
That approach, according to a blog post by Ohio-based Buckeye Firearms Association, could give rise to needless, tense confrontations between police and gun owners. The association and other similar groups liken the tactic to “swatting,” or the act of tricking an emergency service into dispatching responders based on a false report. Many online harassment campaigns have been known to participate in the practice.
“This practice is exactly what they [Coalition to Stop Gun Violence] are doing,” said Erich Pratt, spokesman for Virginia-based Gun Owners of America. “It’s one thing if someone is using a gun in an illegal or unlawful manner. No one is questioning that. But this clearly sounds like swatting.”
Classic swatting entails police raids that could very easily lead to innocent gun-owners (who might not be aware that it is the police kicking in their door in the middle of the night) getting themselves killed in shootouts. This would be a win–win for lefties, killing off opponents while providing more phony evidence that it is not safe for law-abiding citizens to have guns to defend themselves.
