Who told you, that you do not ever need to be armed?
Why shouldn't you yourself, own a firearm? Is there something about you, that you are too dangerous to possess a firearm?


Who owns you? Do you have a Master, that told you to never be armed?


Warren v District of Columbia


It is to be expected from an uneducated society, since most Americans are victims of the world's greatest propaganda ministry, and are loathe to read their own laws and history.

Old people with failing eye sight and shaky hands should not be expected to be armed.

Children should not be expected to be armed.

Many people have religious convictions against arming themselves.

What about the vast number of people convicted of marijuana possession 20, 30 years ago who now are convicted felons and thus cannot own a gun legally even though they are not a threat to anyone.

It is silly to think that people can all be expected to be the masters of their own fate when it comes to violent crime by arming themselves. There is a reason we have a police force - so people can rely on them rather than arming themselves.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

Assault is a behavior, not a device.

911 - government sponsored Dial-a-Prayer, Police do not protect you from crime,
they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
The average response time of a 911 call is over 3 minutes....the response time of a .44 magnum is 1400 feet per second.

The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

Must be sad to have so much of your identity be so intertwined with your possession of guns. It's to the point where you feel only YOU are a true citizen, while anyone who doesn't have your obsession isn't one.

You spend this much time every day talking about them, with reams of cut and paste items saved on your computers to wage the battle.

Sigh* A false sense of security is dangerous to ones health

It is to be expected I guess, since most Americans are victims of the world's greatest propaganda ministry, and are loathe to read their own laws and history.


Warren v. District of Columbia (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981)


In two separate cases, Carolyn Warren, Miriam Douglas, Joan Taliaferro, and Wilfred Nichol sued the District of Columbia and individual members of the Metropolitan Police Department for negligent failure to provide adequate police services. The trial judges held that the police were under no specific legal duty to provide protection to the individual plaintiffs and dismissed the complaints. In a 2–1 decision, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals determined that Warren, Taliaferro, and Nichol were owed a special duty of care by the police department and reversed the trial court rulings. In a unanimous decision, the court also held that Douglas failed to fit within the class of persons to whom a special duty was owed and affirmed the trial court's dismissal of her complaint. The case was reheard by an en banc panel of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, and the defendant (District of Columbia) prevailed


Now, you have all the liberty to rely on the police, when they have no obligation to protect you what so ever. You are not in their best interest. But, don't ever demand I do the same.
