Oakland’s PD is telling residents that getting their hands on an air horn is their best defense against out-of-control crime in the east bay area. They’re adding that residents should also consider adding bars to their doors and windows. A recent post on X, formerly known as Twitter, offered a few tips, including, “Do not resist,” and “Be a good witness and pay attention to the description of the individual or vehicle.”
I think they mean
“Do not resist,” and “Be a good Victim”
They should take Chicago’s example and just politely tell the criminals to not shoot anyone after 9pm.
Actually, it was between 9am and 9pm. After 9pm, all bets are off. Furthermore, that was not the Chicago government, but a group of concerned citizens that made that plea.
Thank you for the correction, just typing the name ‘Chicago’ I was looking out the window waiting for a drive by to happen.
Be a good little victim, just give those poor oppressed citizens your keys, phone, purse and wallet. You have a job, they don’t. You have insurance, they don’t. You’re fortunate enough to own an automobile, they aren’t. Just call it your public service obligation to give the less fortunate a hand up…
Sure, Why not, After you give up all you have (and they take your ride)
Then of course they DON’T kill you for giggles.
They will surely kill you for being stupid enough to bring an Air hole…Horn, AIR HORN to a gunfight!
After that, can you then have them return those items while threatening them as they did you? They, at that point, are the “haves”, as they have your stuff, and you the “have not”. Seems only fair.
I don’t consider myself disarmed, even when I am not carrying “tools”, such as my knives, tactical flashlight, and/or my handgun. I might not be as effective without them, but I am not giving in just because I do not have them. I have yet to do that, so I do not see myself starting now.
I wrote to COLT asking how much that ‘Accessory’ was…
They DELETED me from their records…
Are you aware that adding that accessory to your ordinary rifle will turn it into an illegal assault weapon??
I can see it now, some citizen will try to defend himself with an air horn and the thug will turn around and sue him for hearing loss
NOT the sue part though!
As long as they don’t sue me for lead Poisoning!’ I’m good!
maybe the .gov will issue reimbursement checks for Hearing loss
to the crim’s ?
LOL. Next thing we know, the thugs will be trafficing in illegal and stolen air horns. Everyone is so used to loud noises in the cities that they’ll ignore the horn blasts and not even notice the constant gunfire. Supressors in reverse
please refrain from giving them idea’s to waste more of our money. remember we have the adults in the retirement house (oop’s white house) #FJB
Please don’t disparage our Rezident-in-Thief… He’s on another taxpayer funded vacation in Vale, Colorado
( do they have landslides in the Summer…Hoping
Am I supposed to use the air horn before or after I shoot them?
