The police do not exist to protect you. It isn’t their job. That “protect and serve”? That’s the state, society as a whole, the system.
And that is why we remain adamant on the right to keep and bear arms.
The police do not protect you; they protect the state. An officer might choose to help, but are you willing to bet your life on that? Even assuming an officer happened to be there in your time of need.
There’s only one person always present where you are, who happens to have a vested interest in your life.
No creature on this planet is, or should be, without the right of self-defense. The most successful species are the ones that possess effective means. No more perverted or anti-life sentiment was ever spoken than “You don’t need weapons, you should depend on others to defend you.”
No one who has your best interest at heart would ever demand that you remain helpless.
