Talk of the Town: "Everyone has the right to protect themselves"

Most readers won't make it through the first graph of this academically styled bumble through Beside-the-Pointland, so it might be unfair to ask that the Courier editors recruit a street lawnforcement officer to reply to Tony Imbronone's ultimate point, that the government has neither the capacity nor the inclination to protect you from crime, so you'd better get a gun. That seems a mighty sweeping indictment of our peace officers, not to mention the whole concept of civilization, capping his massive naivete about the likely effectiveness of the strategy.

I dont like how this guy blames the police for not being able to be everywhere all the time ,accuses all levels of US Govt. of either being apathetic or actively ignoring the safty of citizens.
this line I agree with
"If your public servants and government are uncomfortable in your presence while you are armed, they do not understand or believe in their roles as servants and we should replace them"
Nuff said
