New neighborhood group: ‘This is a Glock block’

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (KOIN) — Neighbors say crime in their Clackamas County neighborhood is getting worse, so they’re taking drastic measures and packing heat for protection.

Breast-cancer survivor Coy Toloman talks to KOIN 6 News about the day she decided to get her concealed carry permit. (KOIN 6 News, Ellen Hansen)

We’re starting a new group,” said Coy Tolonen, who lives in unincorporated Clackamas County. “We don’t feel neighborhood watch is sufficient, and we don’t feel the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is sufficient.”

Tolomon and a group of Jennings Lodge neighbors say they’re responding to escalating crime on their block by also making fliers that read “This is a Glock block. We don’t call 911.”

It’s mostly petty crime that neighbors are sick and tired of: stolen lawn ornaments, vandalism. But for neighbors like Tolonen, a breast-cancer survivor, that’s enough: “I will defend myself — and my home,” she told KOIN 6 News.

Tolonen recently had a beloved statue she calls “Lilly Rose” stolen off her front porch. She said she even saw the man who stole it and tried to chase him down — but he got away.

This was the last straw for Tolonen, who decided to take a class to get her concealed carry permit.

“I think more people should be trained, [with] permits to carry,” she said.

Tolonen isn’t the only one of her Milwaukie neighbors to arm themselves.

“They all have permits to carry,” she told KOIN 6 News. She said neighborhood conversations often turn to “what kind of gun they have” or “the best gun shop.”

The fear, she said, is that with growing crime the thieves will become bolder. In her case, she was home at the time when her statue was stolen: “The radio was on,” she said. “If he got in the house, what then?”

Hopefully now, she said, the bad guy will see this flier before trying anything illegal.

Police, of course, caution against any vigilantism.

If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them, Detroit Police Chief James Craig

Florida currently has more concealed-carry permit holders than any other state, with 1,269,021 issued as of May 14, 2014

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

She's going to be upset to find out you can't shoot people for stealing lawn ornaments.

Ensure your beneficiary makes and brings with them to the States a copy of the DS-3025 (vaccination form)

If the government is going to force me to exercise my "right" to health care, then they better start requiring people to exercise their Right to Bear Arms. - "Where's my public option rifle?"

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (KOIN) — Neighbors say crime in their Clackamas County neighborhood is getting worse, so they’re taking drastic measures and packing heat for protection.

Afraid of what? Grannies with guns? unsure.png

I was just trying to echo the NRA spirit since that what this thread is quite obviously about. The NRA loves scared people. Which is why they fight hard to arm criminals and the mentally ill. Scares people when we have a lot of armed criminals and armed nutcases running around in ever larger numbers. Makes some of those scared people go out and buy guns. Which is what it's all about - gun sales. Sure, we have tens of thousands of dead each year as a result of this lunacy but the profits of the gun manufacturers require a blood price to be paid. It's not like human life is more important than the profits of the gun manufacturers. At least not in the eyes of the NRA and it's members.
