History is repeating itself


With age comes the knowledge of how little one knows.

The present political administration desires to take arms away from the people. And it surprises many that even the Lodi police support taking arms away from honest people by purchasing of arms from citizens, supposedly to prevent criminal acts. Do they truly believe that criminals or those with intent will sell their arms to the Lodi Police Department? This open support of the Obama administration is beyond belief.

Yes, the present is a repeat of past history — Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini used the same methods. They left the police and military with automatic and semi-automatic weapons — using them to suppress the people whose weapons did not fire multiple times. Yes, leaving the criminals armed.
