Gun Control advocates now patrolling neighborhoods while armed

My goodness it doesn’t get any more mind boggling and hilarious than this. We’ve all heard of Minneapolis City Council member Jeremiah Ellison and his spearheading of the dismantling of the Minneapolis PD. Well, he is helping take matters into his own hands (don’t mind the goofy “white supremacist“ BS spin, but whatever):

MINNEAPOLIS — It's approaching 2 a.m., and City Council member Jeremiah Ellison is patrolling his neighborhood in a black sedan when the smell of smoke wafts through the open driver's side window.
Several black-owned businesses had been destroyed in this area considered the heart of the city’s black community — in recent fires that investigators have deemed “suspicious.” Neighbors suspect right-wing militias, and social media has been abuzz with purported — but unverified — sightings of masked white men in pickup trucks holding semiautomatic assault rifles.
Now Ellison — the son of former congressman Keith Ellison — is on patrol, hoping to catch the next fire before it destroys another business owner’s livelihood. He’s also ready to contend with danger of the more human sort, if needed.
