I think that this legislator is referring to the criminal practice of “police” to randomly brandish their weapons at people for any reason or no reason at all. Brandishing a weapon is a crime everywhere. Being a cop does not change this or give you special rights. That is unless you believe in moral relativism like the Church of Satan does. (Christians FWIW “claim” to abhor moral relativism. i.e. that crimes are not always crimes. Hence the “relativism” adjective.)
The only time that it is moral to point a deadly weapon at someone is when it is clearly in self defense.
That applies to all men. This country was founded upon the principle that all men were created equal and we seem to have thrown that fundamental concept under the bus with predictable results to our liberties. I fully agree with this lady, with the clarification above. Police departments (or anything else) built upon the concept of moral relativism are concepts that are quite literally right out of hell.
NOTE: FWIW she is somewhat wrong. IF the cop is brandishing his weapon at you, you have a moral, God given right, to immediately respond with lethal force. I suspect that the powers that be will trample and criminalize that absolute right to self defense by siding on the side of Satanically inspired Moral Relativism and made up rights.
Lawmaker: It’s Okay To Aim Guns At Cops If They Aim At You First
Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R), who is currently seeking her party’s nomination for an open U.S. House seat, said last week that she believes the right to self defense includes the right to aim your gun anyone who aims a gun at you, even if they are a law enforcement officer.
In an interview with a local TV station last Sunday, Fiore attacked the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as “a bureaucrat agency of terrorism.” Pressed by KLAS-8 host Steve Sebelius about whether she believes the Second Amendment grants citizens the right to point a weapon at a “duly authorized law enforcement officer who is just out there doing his job,” she said that self-defense includes the right to aim back at anyone who points a gun at you first — and to put your own life ahead of theirs.
“I would never ever point my firearm at anyone, including an officer of the law, unless they pointed their firearm at me,” Fiore explained. But, the assemblywoman continued, “once you point your firearm at me, I’m sorry, then it becomes self-defense. Whether you’re a stranger, a bad guy, or an officer, and you point your gun at me and you’re gonna shoot me and I have to decide whether it’s my life or your life, I choose my life.”…..Read More
