Do you expect the police to protect you from all who would do violence against you? Terrorists, rapists, robbers, etc?
They simply can not be there at all times! Their main job is to investigate crimes after the fact.
This leads to a lot of needless deaths because citizens were not armed and ready.
Armed Response is a great book that I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE everyone to read from cover to cover to help gain a better understanding of the "use of deadly force," your rights, and continued proposed legislation to take those rights away. It is easy to read and provides helpful guidance for everyone from the novice to the advanced. Knowing some of the things in this book could save your life.
Chances are if you are reading this, then your eyes are already at least somewhat opened to what is going on in the world and right here in the United States!

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. "

You have a right to bear arms and defend yourself. Nobody else can help you but you.
