Oakland Businessman Stops Occupy Mob with Shotgun

Let’s hear it for Phil Tagami and the Second Amendment!  Mr. Tagami is an Oakland businessman whose company had managed the development and renovation of the Rotunda building in downtown Oakland.  The recent renovation project cost his firm $50 million.  So Phil Tagami had no intention of sitting by and watching his pride and joy destroyed by a bunch of pseudo-revolutionary layabouts.  On Wednesday night, when the Occupy Oakland mob stormed his building with bats and clubs and attempted to force open the entrance doors of the Rotunda, Phil Tagami confronted these Leftwing hoodlums head on, greeting them with the riveting sound of a racking 12-gauge shotgun.

I was standing there and they saw me there, and I lifted it – I didn’t point it – I just held it in my hands and I just racked it, and they ran.

And as the mayor of Oakland, Jean Quan, made excuses for the mob, calling the rampage an isolated incident and hailing the Occupy movement as peaceful and productive, Phil Tagami, a man who lives in the real world of private enterprise and who contributes to our nation’s GNP, had a very different view of the Occupy matter.

It’s basically concealment and cover for anarchists who are doing this to our city.  We’re very concerned that a group of people can be allowed to do this type of destruction to our town and to our image without any repercussions.  They need to be held accountable.  I support a peaceful protest.  But it was a siege situation last night, and quite frankly, I’m glad we were here.  But I never want to have to do that again.  SF Gate

If you visit Mr. Tagami’s website, you will find on his home page a quote from George Bernard Shaw that so aptly sums up the socialistic Occupy movement in America:

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

    Some of my friends in our local Pink Pistols chapter tell me that doctors are now starting to ask their patients if they’re gun owners. Have they found yet another way to pry into our private lives? And is the government making them ask this?

    The friend who had this experience was too startled to ask the doctor these questions. But I wonder…

    • Lori, I know that in some states pediatricians were urged to ask kids and their parents if there was a gun in their home. And down in Florida, the legislature was working on a bill to prohibit doctors from asking such questions. But if family doctors in some places are asking adults such questions, I think that’s really pushing it. And I’m assuming the phyisican would be putting that information in the patient’s chart. Creepy.

      Pink Pistols….I had been thinking of checking out the local group in my area, but haven’t gotten around to it.

    PERFECT! If there is a sound that resonates more in the heart of criminals then a racking of a shotgun, I don’t know what it is 🙂 Sorry I did not witness this for myself. I grew up in MT and guns were just a part of our life. Today I see all this craziness around and it is sad to say, but my guns may be used to defend my life! God protect our second amendment rights.

    • If anyone thinks that a Democrat controlled government is going to come to our aid at times like these, they are naive. Without the 2nd Amendment, we are at the mercy of the ‘progressive’ mobs. That there are men like Phil Tagami living in places like Oakland/San Francisco gives me hope.
