I know of NO police officer in the United States who has a personal interest in providing protection to me. To him, protecting me is just part of his job description. However conscientious he may be in carrying out his duty to protect the general public from attack, the bottom line is that his primary role in any attack on me will be to lay out yellow crime scene tape, count spent shell casings, interview witnesses, and try to catch the scum who injured me or killed me.
If I had had a concealed carry permit when I was a college professor, I can assure you that not ONE of my lovely students would have been killed by some genetic mistake masquerading as a human being. And now, if anyone wants to take me on personally, I will make it ruinously expensive for him to try to injure me or those I love.
And I will take care of business long before the first police siren is heard in the distance.
And I've only just written about the "self defense from criminals" aspect of my Second Amendment rights. As Mr. Ventura makes clear, the Second Amendment is not about my right to go duck hunting. And just who do these people think they are that I should disarmed and be a sitting duck for scum who laugh at gun laws?
