    What you're referring to is a more recent development. Much of it driven home during the last administration and total lack of respect for law enforcement as a whole. It's never been part of the police charter to protect or defend anyone. There are some police that will do so given the right circumstances but with the more current "fear of liability" as you stated, my guess is that those attitudes are getting much farther and fewer between. I hate to be a conspiracy theorist but I think it's orchestrated right in with the very successful attempt to fundamentally change America which was touted by the last administration. In fact, we see the damage done over that time every day now and it's frightening to the point where one has to wonder if it can ever be turned around. I know many from other countries will read this as shocking. This is not Europe or the UKicon. What many fail to understand/fathom is the sheer size, diversity, (both good and bad), and population of the USAicon. That's why maintaining the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is so important. We can't afford to let those rights be destroyed. Chaos would ensue at some point. It's all happened before in other places around the world. It's really ignorant to think that it can never happen here.

    Nothing in your reply I'd disagree with.
    Heard mention today about how many arms one could/should be able to own.
    I'll leave it at that so as not to lean Political.
    Here's to hoping our votes are still counted..........


    Appreciate your view Brian,

    Yeah, it's the same old, tired playbook. Undermining the electoral system to cause folks to become disgruntled and change it is all part of the plan too. Enough said for the reasons you stated.

    Personal responsibility for ones own welfare/ safety and actions is always to be preferred over delegating to others. This is the fundamental difference.
    Freedom & Liberty are the solution not the problem.

    Guy in Panama City should have said he had an “accidental discharge” due to being “ frightened by the situation”...

    On conversation about duty of law enforcement to protect. We saw the effects of law enforcement ( school resource officer) at Parkland High School not stepping up. That is obviously only one narrow example, but it is a startling example. Would a citizen have been hailed or jailed if they stepped up, and stepped into the fray with a firearm and done the job we expect law enforcement to perform?

    We had a nutcase kill a woman and wound the doctor before the doctor pulled his own pistol and fired back at a local hospital. Of course it was against his employer's policies for anyone to be armed, he wasn't facing any legal problem because obviously it was a good shoot and not one of the People's Republic States that surround us that forbid CCW.
    They were going to fire him but the public outcry saved his job, the man did what was necessary. BTW, he carried the pistol just because he was concerned about that specific patient. He knew if things went sideways it's hard to carry a Cop in your front pocket.
