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?
I always get a chuckle out of the bumpersticker: “Troopers are your best protection.” Yeah, sure.
