This really can’t be repeated too often.

“[T]here is no constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen.”

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.

You.

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.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    “[T]here is no constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen.” Well yes, but another way to say the same thing is that you have no constitutional right to steal money from my pocket just because some third party did something terrible to you.

    Actually, the Only Ones only exist to:

    1. Protect their Masters.
    2. Protect their Brothers – and Sisters – in Blue.
    3. Generate revenue.

    Anything else they may do is coincidental to their primary jobs.

To the stake with the heretic!
