Don't you just love it!
And for years the government has been doing just about everything possible to chip away at our 2nd Amendment rights. So, it is not only harder for we the people equip ourselves for our own defense, but we are now told that the police aren't responsible for defending us either.
What kind of nanny state do you want, one like UK where you do not have a right to self defense? The cops are not OBLIGATED to defend you, that is your responsibility.
