While I understand people's concerns, there will be many people who see the issues differently. There are those, who we may call the Silent Majority, who might be seeing an anarchy versus security issue. Most people will prefer security over anything else, historically (I think), and will see it as a law and order issue.
Law and order as a political issue is nothing new and was very much a hot button topic 40 years ago. Collectively, people forget nothing and there is never any going back to before when something became an issue. It will always be too late.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
