The police cannot protect every citizen. and it’s not their job, anyway. The police’s job is retribution. That’s all.
They find the bad guy and get him before he hurts someone else.
We’re each responsible for our own safety.
How many times and how many ways can this be stated. In a free nation you have personal responsibility. The government is not the answer to all your problems.
The job of the police is to introduce the ethically challenged to the Criminal Justice System. The outcome of that introduction is not within their control. The responsibility for your individual safety, begins and ends with you. Second Amendment anyone?
Remember, when every second counts, the police are only minutes away.
And we have the obligation to protect ourselves and our families. Therefore any attempt by a fascist government to take away this right must be resisted.
The reason every citizen concerned about protecting themselves and their family should be allowed to own and carry firearms. The police are no longer required to do their job (ok - so it is no longer their job - so what is? Writing tickets? OOoooo I feel so much safer now...).
What ever happend to that motto I still see on many police cars? You know - the one that says:
“To protect, and to serve”.
What does that mean? To protect their own butts, and to serve each other donuts?
Yep, they have to have time either to (1) gulp down their donuts and coffee, (2) start up the engine and crawl out from behind the bushes or roadsigns where they’ve been hiding to find folks going three miles over the speed limit (or, in Maryland, running the windshield wipers without turning on the lights — yes, a moving offense), or (3) profiling white motorists for any one of a million minor infractions so that they (the cops) don’t have to go down to the “hood’s” open air drug markets and fight real crime.
I’m sorry. I know there are a lot of great cops. But, by and large, that industry has become a repository for a bunch of power-hungry thugs who like to lord it over cowed perpetrators of the most minor of misdemeanors.
2. Cops are there to do the paperwork and to try and find the perp until distracted by something else.
3. Cops have a closure rate of about 40% on murders.
4. It is better to have a gun in hand than a cop on the phone.
5. If you are an attractive woman - especially blond - you get to meet many cops in your life.
I’m ready, abled, and licensed to protect whatever I feel needs protecting.
The Police have, what is known as, indemnification.
Liscensed ??? Im morally obligated...
Even in the face of this information, the leftist DhimmiRats and Libs are still clamoring to eliminate my Second Amendment rights. I don’t think so...
It’s in the tagline.
Lock and Load.
It’s already in there. The second doesn’t need any tweaks. It’s clear on its face.
Lock and Load.
Support castle doctrine laws in every state. That’s a good place to start.
Support conservative candidates to improve the likelihood of approving constructionist judges to the Federal bench.
All is not lost. But, it is time that we make our voices heard, and take action to ensure this grand experiment for our children and generations yet to come.
I always get a chuckle out of the bumpersticker: “Troopers are your best protection.” Yeah, sure.
