Even if the police are outside of your front door, they still can't protect you.

'Deadly delay': Police wait while mother, sons slain

The District police department policy on forcible entry caused a "deadly delay" as officers waited for a supervisor outside an apartment while a mother and her two young sons were being stabbed to death inside, according to a lawsuit filed by the woman's family.

Typical anti-gun refrain: "We don't need the Second Amendment. We have police to protect us now!" Then I say, "What's the point of limiting guns to those who lack the will to use them for your protection?"

The reality is police carry guns for one reason only: To protect themselves. Not to protect you. Police presence does not negate the need for you to protect yourself. In fact, police have no legal obligation to protect you. If you want protection, you must provide it for yourself.
