That is the money quote. The police are under no legal obligation to protect citizens, they are armed for self protection not yours or mine. And why would officers want to protect themselves against armed ‘peaceable’ citizens anyway? Are they afraid they might do something that would create an ‘unruly’ citizen from one that was formally peaceable? What truly infuriates me is that the authorities want desperately to disarm you leaving you defenseless all the while knowing that they are immune from any legal ramifications as US citizens have NO Constitutional/legal right to police protection. MOLON LABE indeed!!
