Protect Yourself. Nobody Else Will.

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day. He's a retired State Trooper and a gun dealer/trainer. He told me a young man in his twenties was riding through the downtown area of the city I live in recently and three bullets came through his vehicle, one lodging in his cheek. The bullets were 22 cal. and he's gonna be ok. But the city police basically said "what do you want us to do about it?".

One of the many reasons I have a CCP. You can't depend on law enforcement to help you out. If you want to be protected, you'd better learn to protect yourself. Most of the criminals on the street have already spent time and are back on the street to prey on the innocent once again. For one thing, in my city at least, the police don't get paid enough to risk their lives. Secondly, it's not really their job to protect the public. Their job is to arrest bad guys when they do bad things.

Flash ahead a few years...

What will happen if BHO does what most gun owners believe he will do - and that is start grabbing weapons from law-abiding citizens? Think that we'll be more safe than we are now? Think the bad guys will give up their guns? Think the police will be more willing to protect us?

Think again.

Ms Green, The reason liberals always want to disarm law abiding citizens is because after they muck everything up so badly, which they always do, they are afraid us well armed citizens will come after them, which we will. Oh how I like wild west justice. Herm

If that kid had only had a gun he could have...

Done what?

And no, herm, Liberals aren't afraid of you (but that fantasy does explain alot), and the last time a bunch of rednecks decided to revolt because their property was being taken away it didn't work out so well for them. Still, good luck living in 1850.

Actually, my point was that we can't depend on law enforcement to protect us (or care). There is probably not much the young man could have done in this particular shooting (although I don't know the details - he might have seen his attacker but not reacted quickly enough). But I can just about guarantee you that the jerk that did the shooting is not a law abiding citizen with a legally owned firearm. If the Obamanites have their way, all law abiding citizens will be defenseless to protect themselves.

Actually Anon, history is replete with examples of well armed citizenry overcoming crime, assault, aggression, and evil of all sorts. And by the way, liberals really are afraid of a well armed law abiding public. Liberals are generally wimps and must congregate in masses to feel enough courage to step out into the light of Gods world. Also most liberals are fearful of anything that makes more noisy than they do. And finally, its apparent you never read your history assignments in school because we know that a well armed citizenry revolted against Britain and "We know the rest of that story". If you don't like guns, then by all means, don't try to acquire one. There dangerous if you don't know how to use one. Its usually always liberals who make " The Darwin's List" when they attempt to pick up a firearm. AND the only fantasy I live in is one where liberals get a brain and become CONSERVATIVES. God Bless, Herm
