    Re: Violence in Lockhart
    Our home and community have experienced vandalism due to the Marxist arm of the Democrat Party.
    The lovely Confederate monument on our courthouse square has been vandalized a number of times, recently. Also, our patriotic icons have been stolen off our personal property several times.
    So far, the law enforcement have not caught the vandals, trespassers, and thieves.
    However, it is the Democrat Party that encourages terrorists to loot, burn, and steal other people’s property. In Democrat- run cities,like New York, Seattle, and Portland, the terrorists are also encouraged to kill people, especially police. Apparently, the Democrat thugs are expecting to intimidate Conservative voters to stay home and let them have the next election.
    All over the country, gutless politicians have been giving in to the Democrat thugs—letting them deface or remove our historic landmarks and monuments—as well as burn buildings and loot businesses. Since government hasn’t done it’s job of protecting public property and personal businesses, how can government be depended on to protect families?
    It time for law abiding citizens to affirm our 2nd Amendment rights and require that government crack- down on thugs, too.
