Oregon Residents Arm Against Criminals, Form ‘Glock Blocks’

I report today on the Armed Citizen Project (ACP), which is spreading the Second Amendment gospel. Fox News mentions one part of the country that does not need any evangelization:

Crime in an Oregon county has reportedly gotten so bad that residents are vowing to protect themselves on so-called “Glock blocks” instead of awaiting authorities to respond.

KOIN.com reports that Coy Tolonen, who lives in unincorporated Clackamas County, and a group of Jennings Lodge residents are responding to escalating crime in their neighborhood by posting fliers that read: “This is a Glock block. We don’t call 911.”

As ACP founder Kyle Coplen might say, “We want criminals to know that, if they come into this neighborhood, they are playing Russian roulette with their lives.”

Last night, the nation witnessed what looked a lot like an extended version of the famous “two minutes hate” from George Orwell’s novel 1984. During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
