The Mayor of Philadelphia set a curfew on Wednesday night and guess what?
The rioters didn’t obey the curfew. Who’d have thunk it?
A citywide curfew aimed to calm unrest after Philly police shot and killed Walter Wallace Jr. didn’t stop some looters and protesters overnight. Here’s the latest. https://t.co/UdsIskuXx4 pic.twitter.com/UqnAXNRrmX

It’s no surprise that murderers aren’t typically concerned with whether or not they’re carrying a weapon, legally. Bank robbers aren’t concerned with speeding in the getaway car.
But criminals don’t obey laws. What does deter some criminals is the consequences for breaking the law.
But what if the criminals were told there would be no consequences?
It sounds like that's exactly what happened in Philly.

It's no wonder these riots have lasted as long as they have. The rioters know there won't be consequences.
Heck, you can get yourself a free washer and dryer as seen on some of the videos.
We've seen this in Portland, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and other (mainly Democrat-run) cities around the country.
Police ordered to stand down while people's businesses, homes, and lives are being destroyed.
Now imagine this happening in your city without a Second Amendment. If Harris and Biden get their way, that could very well be the future.
