happiness is owning a gun?
I find it interesting that Sheriff Clarke has said that its up to the residents to assist in their own sense of safety and protection. Correct me if Im wrong, but isnt that the job of the police department and not the average citizen? Isnt there a move across the country to get guns out of the hands of the averagde person in the attempt to make this a safer nation, since criminals will turn in their guns seeing that they are not to have them?
So let me get this straight. The police department is not doing their job to keep streets safe and to keep guns out of the hands of those who are not supposed to have them, and the solution to this, the way to make my life safer, is that i go and get a gun, to protect myself? Who decides how and when I am to use this gun, and will i get in trouble if i use it when the law decides that i should have called the police and let them take care of the situation instead? Sounds like a vicious non-sensical circile. How about we work harder to keep the guns out of the hands of criminals, keep streets safer, punish criminals, and then average law-abiding citizens will not need to arm themselves. Now that makes more sense to me.
