    I love the one where the woman officer says, "don't take things into your own hands. Call us. That's what we're here for."

    Yeah, right!

    Better to face a jury than a pine box. Shoot them dead.

    I carry at home for the same reason that I carry when I go out.
    It's the voices that I keep hearing and the pain in my head - they won't stop!

    Technically, that's what we call a "LIE". Police have no duty to protect individuals. They have no legal liability if they fail to protect individuals, except in VERY limited circumstances, NONE of which you're likely to find yourself in.

    More importantly, even in jurisdictions with conscientious police forces, police have virtually no ABILITY to protect individuals in immediate danger of life and limb. My godsister's boyfriend stabbed her to death. I don't know if she managed to call the Chicago PD before he did. I doubt it would have made one iota of difference, even assuming that 911 AND the responding officers cared AND did their jobs with reasonable efficiency. 911's a communications system of variable efficiency, NOT a matter transmitter.

    In most cases, protect yourself or don't get protected at all.

    He probably does. He'd probably feel even moreso if he were smart enough not to possess or use drugs, even in miniscule quantities.

    Do you think he wishes it HADN'T been the police, but instead home invaders AND that he HADN'T shot?

    What do you win if you assume anyone who kicks in your door is the cops and you get maimed or killed by home invaders?

    I tell people all the time to carry at home... rarely do they listen.

    Sorry, I got carried away with my last post (not really) but the simple answer is "It is better to have and not need, than to need and not have". Boy Scout Motto: "Be Prepared".

    Nuff said.

    My Motto: Hope for the best, Expect the worst, All Else is gravy. Any Questions?

    And mine,unless they have REAL GOOD VESTS, perforate them nicely. Remember, JBT's wear vests and enter through "The Verticle Coffin", BANG BANG BANG, JUST LKE DOMINOES, then the stand-off begins. Just the way it will be. Of course, expect the worst when/if/should it happen to you. Just speaking it like it will be. The most frightening words in the English language are; "We are from the Government, and we are here to help you". YEAH RIGHT!!!!

    Super sense of humor. This had me laughing for some time.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
