BumZen told Casual to eat a dick, and then said:
Do you plan on fighting the US military and/or police with all that ammo? Or what is your point?
You're being deliberately dense to justify your hoplophobia.

Joe-× told Casual to eat a dick, and then said:
Likewise, others can do an analysis of the risk of violence being done to them by others while a government system ostensibly established to protect them ignores the dangers to citizens while protecting only themselves and their buildings. These people can make a rational decision to take action to protect themselves. What's ethically wrong with self defense?
I'm not proposing to fight the military or the police. Haven't you learned about strawman arguments in all your studies? I'm talking about personal self defense when the police won't come as has happen in many cities in the US.

Joe-× told Casual to eat a dick, and then said:
Why do police exist? To protect innocent people from criminals? What do you do while waiting? Offer them a nice bowl of Æbleflæsk and try to win them over?
Or if you live in an area where the police response is slow enough to put your own life in danger while waiting. And the police will be coming with guns. Because guns are tools used to protect innocent people from violent aggressors. This isn't complicated.

SomeDanishNewspaper told Casual to eat a dick, and then said:
Average response times are reported to have fallen from ten minutes 38 seconds to nine minutes 45 seconds.
Nine minutes 45 seconds. That's a long time to wait while some thug holds a Danish kitchen axe to your throat.

That's pretty good. This March both Republican candidates for Sheriff in my county came to my door. The primary winner nearly always runs unopposed. We're rural. I asked both of them what the average response time is in our area. They said that since I live in a township without its own police department, the average time is between 18-22 minutes. 18 on average if the deputy on patrol is available or on a lower priority call. 22 if they have to dispatch a deputy from a different patrol zone. We have a small city police chief and a major city police captain in our neighborhood. I asked them what they do. They both said the same thing. You're on your own. If the aggressor wants to do violence to you, the deputy can only write up a report about what happened. If you want it to be that you used lethal force to defend yourself get a gun. If you want it to be unarmed man killed by criminal, then don't.

Yeah. We live in a relatively low-crime area, but America is overrun with violence. Here's what happened to a friend of mine:
