Armed guards? Well now, that won’t go over well in Democrat circles, will it?
The recent bloodshed at a Bergen Street bodega and an IHOP right across the street from busy University Hospital has Newark officials again talking about curfews and armed security.
“Irvington closes their bars an hour before we do. East Orange closes restaurants at 10 p.m., so why in Newark [do] we let folks kind of have their way and go a lot later?” Newark Mayor Cory Booker asked.
Booker vetoed a measure last year that would have mandated late-night establishments have armed guards, citing the cost to local businesses, 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reported.
Well, maybe had he not vetoed it so many wouldn’t have died. Can we say he’s got blood on his hands? Now the left loves to portray this guy as some kind of superhero because he once rescued a cat, but what about the rampant violence plaguing his city? Or is this a case like with Obama where no failures can be attached to him because, well, racist.
Booker called the latest violence “unacceptable” and urged the public to get involved.
Well, if whatever law-abiding citizens that are left are able to arm themselves, then maybe they would get involved.
