From Philadelphia, via Paul Koning, who says, “Yes, they do want you dead”. Controversial bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass:
A bill moving through city council reads: “No establishment shall erect or maintain a physical barrier.”
Philadelphia is extremely anti-gun. Hence, one could easily defend the hypothesis that the city council considers the criminal class their primary constituents. Don’t laugh! In the Soviet Union criminals were considered allies in building communism. And it wouldn’t be the first time in the U.S. politicians deliberately sided with criminals.
Sebastian has some thoughts on the topic as well.
Fine. Remove all metal detectors, security gates, etc from city buildings. Open up the TSA gates at Philly airport.
