Hahaha. No hoplophobia here (had to google it, I'll admit). The police and military actively seek out dangerous elements or defend themselves from elements actively seeking to harm them, and would require force to do so. They're regulated and trained.

That's the thing. I don't live my life in fear.

And just in case you want to expand on your narrative of how you perceive my question, instead of just answering it: I don't mind guns. If I lived in the US, I would most likely own one. Locked away for safety measures.

Your argument of long response times is silly to me. IF a person seeks to harm you, you're likely not the hardest target to harm unless you sit on your porch with your loaded assault rifle all day.

With that said, I will admit to the US being in a period of great unrest which I can understand would cause some concern. And I do understand any argument you would have concerning having a gun in your house would make you feel safer. But there's a long way from that to "stockpiling 5.56" ammo in the basement. We're long past the concept of self defense here. So, how many Danish axe wielders do you plan on mowing down? (good luck, us Danes have a history of being good with those)
