The people with money and power can legislate that the common man cannot have the means to protect ones self. Of course the police see it the same way because for a person to defend him/herself until the police arrive is construed as the armed citizen is taking away the job of the police. Fortunately, New York State has stated on occasion that the citizen is responsible for his/her own safety until the arrival of the police. I did a study in college about the average time for police to respond to 911 calls. It was just over 18 minutes. A long time to wait for the Calvary to come charging over the hill.
