In an unusual conflict of party political values, a Michigan man running as a Libertarian for the U.S. Senate proposes arming homeless with shotguns in order to deter violent crimes. Usually, liberals are against arming citizens with firearms but Brian Ellison says he has no fears the shotguns would be misused.
If you're wondering why Ellison is running as a liberal but promoting firearms, well his ideology still overwhelmingly reflects liberal values. "Not only are the homeless constantly under threat from would-be criminals, but they are also under threat from governments at various levels that criminalize activities that homeless people rely on for survival."
So, Ellison's reason for arming the homeless is so they can shoot government workers looking to do their job by enforcing the law? Ah, now it makes sense why he is running as a Libertarian. His unusual views are likely too outlandish to get him elected to the Senate.
Maybe the solution to the violent crimes the homeless face should be to get rid of the homeless people? Contrary to what liberals think about helping homeless being a good thing, promoting homelessness is very dangerous to everyone around them.
After one homeless tent camp was torn down in California recently, over 13,000 hypodermic needles and several tons of human waste were removed from the river where the homeless were living.
"I don't know why the homeless are viewed as such a different type of people as the rest of us," Ellison said. "I carry a gun with me all the time, and I don't victimize anyone. I wouldn't expect that the homeless would use their weapons to fight off the police who are asking them to leave. I think the homeless would use their weapons to protect themselves from being victims of violent crimes."
It is this type of backward, liberal ideology that would try to provide more free stuff to homeless people at the expense of hardworking, American taxpayers. Here is an idea Mr. Ellison, how about those homeless people get a job and buy their own shotguns?
