File Under: Who'd Have Thunk?
For the past two months, Mr. Greer, Mr. Brooks and fellow volunteers in the Edgewood Park Defense Patrol — half of whom carry guns — have walked and biked through this neighborhood nightly to bring a sense of safety to an area they said had experienced an increase in crime and a decrease in police patrols.
Though Mayor John DeStefano Jr. has called the patrols a "recipe for disaster," members of the group said that they had not once pulled out a gun, and the authorities acknowledged that violent crime had gone down in Edgewood since the patrols began.
American citizens protecting their community while carrying privately-owned firearms. Why, one could almost draw the conclusion that the Second Amendment is still highly relevant after all these years, despite the incessant ramblings of bigoted, anti-gun rights politicians, such as Mayor DeStefano there, and the rest of the PSH Brigade.
